Davie, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Brady Quinn didn't last long in Miami.

The former Notre Dame star quarterback and first-round draft choice was cut by the Dolphins after two weeks with the team.

Quinn signed with Miami earlier this month and appeared in one preseason game against Tampa Bay, completing all four of his passes for 22 yards. He did not play last week against Dallas, meaning Matt Moore will likely be the backup to Ryan Tannehill.

"It was short lived but I enjoyed every second," Quinn wrote on his Twitter feed Tuesday. "Thank you Miami Dolphins for the opportunity to play the game I love again. Best of luck to all the players and coaches this season!"

Quinn, selected 22nd overall by Cleveland in the 2007 draft, has thrown for 3,043 yards with 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in 24 NFL games.

The Dolphins also waived wide receivers Armon Binns and Ryan Spadola, tight end Brett Brackett, center Tyler Larsen, cornerback Steven Clarke and defensive linemen Rakim Cox and Cory Grissom.

Miami also placed running back Mike Gillislee, tight end Arthur Lynch and defensive tackle A.J. Francis on injured reserve.
