    Lawrence Timmons of the Miami Dolphins takes the field during a game against the New York Jets at Hard Rock Stadium on October 22, 2017 in Miami Gardens, Florida.

    Veteran linebacker Lawrence Timmons has been released after one disappointing season with the Miami Dolphins.

    The move announced Tuesday had been expected. Timmons went AWOL on the eve of last year's opener, was briefly suspended and played poorly when he returned.

    He signed a $12 million, two-year contract in 2017 after 10 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. His departure clears $5.5 million in cap space for Miami.
