DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -The Miami Dolphins released offensive lineman Steve McKinney on Monday, three months after he signed as a free agent.
McKinney had been competing for playing time at guard and as a backup to center Samson Satele.
The 6-foot-4, 302-pound McKinney was a starter in each of his first eight NFL seasons, but after he struggled in 2005 he became a part-time center for Houston.
Last season, he started the Texans' first three games before tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and missed the rest of the season.
