MIAMI (AP) — Long snapper John Denney has re-signed for a 15th season with the Miami Dolphins.
The 40-year-old Denney's streak of 224 consecutive games is the longest in team history and the longest active streak in the NFL. He's the longest-tenured active Dolphins player and has played in every game since the start of his rookie season in 2005.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Former starting cornerback Tony Lippett has been waived by the Miami Dolphins after missing all of last season with a torn Achilles tendon.

Also cut Saturday was receiver Leonte Carroo, a third-round pick in 2016 who has only 10 receptions in two seasons.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins 14th-year veteran John Denney first saw his future career path in eighth grade, when he bent over and looked between his legs.
His coach was putting together a place-kicking team at practice, and Denney volunteered to try out as a long snapper.
MIAMI (AP) — As part of an attempted upgrade on offense, the Miami Dolphins even decided to switch snappers.
Three-time Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey was released Thursday as part of an offensive line makeover. Miami also acquired center Daniel Kilgore in a trade with San Francisco, and four-time Pro Bowl guard Josh Sitton agreed to terms on a two-year deal that could be worth nearly $18 million including incentives, said his agent, Jack Reale.

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has never won a playoff game.
Ditto five-time Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Wake. And 39-year-old long snapper John Denney, who has been with the Miami Dolphins since 2005.
They're probably not going to win a playoff game this season, either.
Or even play in one.
Miami (6-8) heads into the final two weeks of the regular season with a 3 percent chance to make the postseason, according to fivethirtyeight.com.
