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

Tankersley had been previously placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which Tankersley was also activated from on Tuesday.

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.
