WR - FA
The Miami Dolphins have released WR Ricardo Louis, per Adam Schefter.
Louis rejoined the Dolphins for a second stint earlier in August after initially being released back in July. The Dolphins were looking to provide some depth at receiver with Albert Wilson and Allen Hurns each opting-out due to COVID-19. The 26-year-old WR will now enter free agency and will look to sign with a team for the upcoming 2020 season.
