The move Wednesday came one day after Long was chosen a Pro Bowl starter for the third consecutive year. He endured an injury-plagued season, including a back ailment that forced him to miss two games after he started the first 61 games of his career.
To fill Long’s spot on the roster, the Dolphins signed running back Richard Medlin from the practice squad. He signed with New England as a rookie free agent in August and was released at the end of training camp.
