Cornerback Benny Sapp has been released by the Miami Dolphins, Sapp's agent tweeted Tuesday evening. This isn't a major surprise after Miami gave up 517 passing yards to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on "Monday Night Football."
Sapp was the victim on Patriots receiver Wes Welker's 99-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. That play helped seal the game for New England (1-0).
Meanwhile, the Dolphins (0-1) are searching for answers defensively. They have another strong passing team -- the Houston Texans -- coming to town in Week 2.
