Mike Pouncey requests release, Dolphins expected to grant it

Mike Pouncey requests release, Dolphins expected to grant it

The San Francisco 49ers reportedly have traded center Daniel Kilgore and a seventh-round pick to the Miami Dolphins for a seventh-rounder, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The Dolphins will save $7 million on their salary cap after cutting Pouncey.

Pouncey has three years remaining on his contract after signing a five-year extension in 2015. He became expendable when San Francisco signed former New York Giants center Weston Richburg to a five-year, $47.5 million deal on Wednesday.

Dele Alli is world's best 21-year-old, says Mauricio Pochettino
Pochettino's hyperbole invited the comparison between Alli and some of the game's other stellar talents in his age bracket. The Spurs boss added: "The reality is with his crutch and boot, we need to assess him day by day and look at the reaction".

The 28-year-old Pouncey, who has been named to three Pro-Bowl teams so far in his career, should not have a hard time attracting interests as a free agent. "When Kyle (Shanahan) and I arrived last offseason, we knew right away that he was a well-respected leader in the locker room and a true professional". The Chicago Bears declined to pick up an $8 million option to retain Sitton on February 20.

Mike Pouncey's time with the Miami Dolphins is set to come to an end. "I think it was awesome", Pouncey told the Palm Beach Post.

Kilgore has started each of the 49ers' last 32 regular-season games.

Pouncey's pending release comes as Miami dives into a youth movement, having already parted ways with veteran defensive lineman Ndamukong Such and trading wide receiver Jarvis Landry.

What is in the STOP School Violence Act?
Mitch McConnell has been among them, and I commend him for co-sponsoring the STOP School Violence Act introduced by U.S. The other bill would strengthen, but not expand, the federal background check system for gun purchases.

Despite playing all 16 games last season, there had to be concern about Pouncey's past hip injuries.
