DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Veteran cornerback Eric Green has been released by the Miami Dolphins, leaving rookies Sean Smith and Vontae Davis to contend for a starting job.

Green had been a disappointment in training camp, and his contract was terminated Wednesday. He signed with Miami as an unrestricted free agent in March after four seasons with Arizona.

Smith, who has been practicing with the first team, made an interception in Monday’s exhibition opener against Jacksonville. Davis, Miami’s first-round draft choice in April, was flagged for three penalties in the game.

The Dolphins seek a replacement for starter Andre’ Goodman, who signed with Denver in the offseason.
