Former Clemson cornerback Cordrea Tankersley was waived by the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday afternoon.

Tankersley was picked 97th overall in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft by Miami.
He started in 11 games as a rookie and totaled 24 solo tackles and seven passes defended but had injuries hold him out of action in the last two campaigns.
Tankersley, a Beech Island native, was a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe and Bednarik awards as a senior with the Tigers, tallying four interceptions and 11 pass breakups.
