Probably a good move as he took a step backward last year in performance, and he can't get on the field now.

The Miami Dolphins released defensive tackle Adam Butler earlier in the week with a failed physical designation. He didn’t step on the field during training camp, but he wasn’t placed on either the physically unable to perform list or the non-football injury list prior to the start.https://dolphinswire.usatoday.com/2022/ ... r-release/
What should also be noted is that the Dolphins saved $4.15 million in cap space that they can now use to sign free agents, extend their own players or carry over to 2023.
Last year, Butler’s only season with Miami, he played a career-high 53 of the team’s defensive snaps. However, he also set career-lows in tackles (17) and sacks (two).
