The Dolphins lured him down there, but now want to go with youngsters. Provided his knee is up to snuff, he may just be what the doctored ordered.

Now this guy, assuming he passes a physical, is someone worth picking up.

As a dolfan, this was not unexpected really. Lance never got on the field, he was hurt all of camp. And once he was back in pads, he was so deep in the rotation he never got a shot....he must not have been healthy or good anymore. The dolphins (and I know!) are really shit at RG....John Jerry is overweight constantly, and Josh Samuda has been a revolving door in pass blocking.

 

Our line has just as many issues as the Panthers....if we cut him before cutting to 53....I don't think he'd be worth bringing in honestly.

It would unbelievable if Rivera and Gettledog stood pat with what they have on the right side.  That would be like giving cam the middle finger.

I'm lead to believe that this was more of a cost cutting measure than a "can't play for shit" move.

We have 15mm+ of cap space rolling over next season, 2mm isnt a big deal if he could play for us.

I'd assume his play was affected by the ACL injury.

The release of Louis, 28, is good indication the team wasn't excited about his return from major knee surgery. He made his preseason debut against the Houston Texans on Aug. 17 and was slated to challenge John Jerry for the lead role at right guard after starting 28 games for the Chicago Bears over the past three seasons. Instead, Louis struggled to keep pace this summer with undrafted rookie Josh Samuda.

And we need all of it. They cut him for 1.25 mil and they sucked at RG which makes me think it la similar to the piggy situation with us.

Josh Samuda is undrafted rookie and he has started the last few preseason games whiel John Jerry sat with a bruised knee. So if Louis couldnt even "show what he has" with our starters with the starting RG out over a undrafted rookie....how much can he help you guys?

We released a certain player named Wharton in favor of, well, no one (we didn't even have another LG on the roster, or one worth a shit) for similar reasons.... Someone outplaying him wasn't one of them.

Wharton was overpaid and I don't think Bell being a RT had any affect on Wharton the LG.

Louis was on a cheap one year deal. Miami saved very little by releasing him. His play had fell off due to the ACL injury. The article stated as much.

I thought Wharton was due something crazy that year, like 6-7 mil.

Yeah, no idea why I had Bell in my head...brain far. I meant Amini.  And we didn't really release him because of Amini, at the time of release, Amini wasn't even drafted yet. If you recall we released Wharton without ANY real starting LG on the roster AT ALL.

 

That's my main point.

Idk how high it was, but his contract is the reason for release.

A player on a one year deal who is cut, usually isn't cut because of money. Rather their play wasn't heads above the competition..

Just to reiterate my point, since I got some poo all confused in my earlier post. In 2012, we let Schwartz walk in FA and then released Wharton. At that point we had literally no starting RT or LG, we eventually signed Hangartner and drafted Amini, while letting a UDFA compete with a person with a brain disorder (Campbell), whose ability to conceptualize scouts described as "scary", at RT with Bell eventually winning that position. 

 

God, just thinking back on all those moves makes my asshole pucker. And you know why we did those moves? So we could sign a backfield to 2924809834 Billion dollars and assume they could run successfully behind North Wilkes High School level O-line men.

Yeah, we didn't have a player in the wings at the LG position. I cant remember who was the favorite before the draft, but Wharton was for sure cut because of the money he was owed.

He was on the field for a hot minute, so how they can say his play has fallen off just isn't quite logical to me.  If he passes waivers, I bet you that they'll be the first ones in line trying to sign him to an even cheaper deal.

He started on Chicagos line the last few years(nuff said) and couldn't crack the dolphins 53 man roster nevermind the starting lineup. No thanks

Guess he didn't seperate himself from his competition??? 1.6 million isn't very much money for a solid starter. The article said he couldnt keep up with their UDFA. I can't claim to know how the remaining RGs for the phins look. All I know is it wasn't 100% about his money...
