MIAMI (AP) — Former NFL first-round draft pick Taco Charlton was released Thursday by the Miami Dolphins.

The veteran defensive end started five games last year and had five sacks but struggled against the run. The Dolphins released him rather than exercising his fifth-year option for 2021.

Charlton was the 28th overall pick out of Michigan by Dallas in 2017.
