Defensive end Taco Charlton has been waived by the Miami Dolphins.

The 25-year-old led the Dolphins in sacks last season with five in 10 games, but Miami have decided to move on just a year after picking up Charlton.

A first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Charlton spent just two seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, recording only four sacks.

The Dolphins, who went 5-11 in 2019, had the fewest sacks of any team in the NFL last season.

In fact, their collective total of 23 sacks was five fewer than the Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons.

In order to remedy that lack of a pass rush, Miami went out in free agency and picked up defensive ends Shaq Lawson and Emmanuel Ogbah, both of whom had more sacks than Charlton in 2019.
