The Dolphins will save $7 million in cap space by cutting him.
Pouncey told Joe Chad of the Palm Beach Post that he asked to be cut because Miami didn't want to extend his contract. T
"I know my career isn’t over," Pouncey said.
Pouncey is signed through the 2020 season, but has struggled with injury, though he did start all 16 regular-seaosn games in 2017.
A former first-round pick, Pouncey will likely have a strong market in what is a weak free-agent offensive linemen class.
