Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey has requested his release and the team is expected to grant it Thursday, a source told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The three-time Pro Bowler will be the latest significant departure from the Dolphins, following the release of Ndamukong Suh and Jarvis Landry's trade to the Cleveland Browns.

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.
