The Miami Dolphins placed tight end Julius Thomas and guard Jermon Bushrod on the injured reserve list on Wednesday in what could mark the end of each player’s time in Miami.

Thomas is under contract with a $6.6M cap hit next season and has not lived up to expectations. Thomas has look more like a tight end on a steep decline than an offensive weapon.

Bushrod contemplated retirement last season before returning to Miami this season and he is likely, after a poor season, to opt for retirement once the season is over. Even if Bushrod opts to continue his career, it’s likely that it won’t be in Miami.

In corresponding moves, the Dolphins promoted tight end Thomas Duarte and activated offensive tackle Eric Smith off of injured reserve
