Dolphins Release Team Captain Bobby McCain – CBS Miami
(CBSMiami) – After seven rookies were added in last week’s NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins’ roster changes continued on Thursday. The organization reportedly informed team captain Safety Bobby McCain that they wanted to release him. The 27-year-old safety officer has spent all six seasons of his NFL career with the team after being selected in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL draft.
McCain started his career as a cornerstone before moving to safety with Brian Flores’ coaching staff in 2019. In 2020 he started 15 games with a total of 46 tackles, five passes defended and one interception.

The decision to release McCain is likely related to the team’s round two choice they used to keep Oregon Jevon Holland safe. With Holland, the security room is a bit overcrowded with Brandon Jones, Eric Rowe, Clayton Fejedelem, Brian Cole and Nate Holley.
