Miami Dolphins Release CB Marshall

In some what of a surprising move, the Miami Dolphins have released corner, Richard Marshall. Marshall signed with Miami last year after spending time with both Arizona and Carolina.

Marshall’s first season with the team was plagued by injuries after beating out former Miami Dolphin,Vontae Davis, in camp. Marshall played in just four games before being placed on the injured reserve due to a back injury.

 

According to Profootballtalk, Miami will avoid having to pay Marshall’s $4.55 million salary, but Marshall becomes a free agent immediately.

Profootballtalk is also reporting that Miami attempted to trade the veteran corner before cutting him, but found absolutely no interest.

 

While this may come as a shock to most, Marshall has been outplayed by CB Dimitri Patterson thus far and obviously GM Jeff Ireland saw Marshall as an expendable player. This could also suggest that rookie second-round pick, Jamar Taylor, is ready to go finally after a sports hernia has limited his action thus far.

 

While I would rather have Marshall than CB Nolan Carroll, well, we’re stuck with Carroll at the moment.
