The Miami Dolphins continued their roster purge at the start of the league year Wednesday by releasing veteran guard Josh Sitton, the team announced.
The move will save the Dolphins $5 million in cap space.
Sitton is likely to wind up with the New York Jets, a source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter. There he would reunite with Jets coach Adam Gase, formerly of the Dolphins.
Sitton, 32, signed a two-year, $13.5 million deal with the Dolphins last March with hopes of fortifying Miami's interior offensive line. Sitton's season ended shortly after it started when he tore his rotator cuff in Week 1 versus Tennessee.
Sitton had surgery and was placed on injured reserve in September.
The 6-foot-3, 320-pound veteran guard is a four-time Pro Bowler who has played 11 NFL seasons, including his first eight in Green Bay.
