The Miami Dolphins announced Saturday night that they waived undrafted free agent offensive lineman Ty Clary due to a missed physical lineman and signed Cole Banwart to replace him.
Banwart (6-foot-4, 298) spent part of last season on the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants practice squads, but did not play in a regular-season game. He originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Tennessee Titans.
Banwart played collegiately at Iowa, where he played left and right guard and earned third-team All-America and second-team All-Big Ten honors as a senior in 2020.
Clary, from Arkansas, was one of 14 undrafted free agents the Dolphins signed after their four-pick draft in late April. Of the 18 rookies who will have the chance to compete for a spot on the Dolphins roster through rookie minicamp, organized team activities and mandatory minicamp, he was the one with experience playing center, a position that many expected Miami to approach with one of the team’s draft picks.
The Dolphins wrapped up their two days of on-field work in rookie minicamp on Saturday.
