Dolphins drop Taco Charlton

The Miami Dolphins waived defensive end Taco Charlton.

What It Means:

Charlton made five starts and logged 396 defensive snaps (35.4 percent) over 10 games in his one-year stay with the Dolphins. He led the defense with a career-high 5.0 sacks, but also wound up being a healthy scratch at times down the stretch. The former first-round pick is 25.

Charlton recorded 2 forced fumbles and 3 tackles for loss with 5 quarterback hits, in addition to the 5.0 takedowns. He graded just 107th in overall defense by Pro Football Focus out of 114 edge defenders to play at least 250 snaps last season.
