Dolphins waived DT Anthony Johnson, OG Michael Liedtke, LB James Davidson, DT DeAndre Coleman, WR Damarr Aultman, and OT Donald Hawkins.
Johnson is the most notable name. The second-year UDFA out of LSU made the Dolphins and played 84 snaps last season, but was the odd man out this year following the additions of Ndamukong Suh and C.J. Mosley. Fri, Sep 4, 2015 09:55:00 AM

Dolphins signed LSU DT Anthony Johnson.

Johnson (6-foot-2, 308) left school following his true junior season after making 16 starts for Les Miles' Tigers, racking up 22 tackles for loss and seven sacks. Despite being nicknamed "The Freak" in college, Johnson underwhelmed at the Combine with a 5.24 forty, 24 1/2-inch vertical, and 8-foot-6 broad jump. Only 21 years old, Johnson offers upside as a three-technique, but needs to play harder on a down-to-down basis and polish his technique. He's a boom-or-bust project. Johnson was viewed as a mid- to late-round prospect but was flagged for a failed drug test at the Combine.

FOX Sports reports LSU DT Anthony Johnson failed a drug test at the Scouting Combine in February.

Johnson (6-foot-3, 308) is viewed as a mid- to late-round prospect. He ran a 5.22 forty and bench-pressed 225 pounds just 22 times at the Combine. Johnson already had some character concerns, so this isn't going to help him. He's a big, athletic interior lineman who may fit best in a 4-3 defense.
