Dolphins released CB Richard Marshall.

Another cog of GM Jeff Ireland's two-year masterplan down the drain. The move clears $4.55 million in salary. Overpaid to the tune of a three-year, $16 million contract in 2012, Marshall was limited to just four games by a back injury last season. Those are four games for which he was paid over $5 million. Marshall is hard-nosed and versatile, but was miscast as an outside starter. Ireland's admission of defeat is made more stunning by the fact that he has no clear alternative opposite Brent Grimes. Perhaps Ireland is ready to throw second-rounder Jamar Taylor into the fire, but career slot-man Dimitri Patterson is the best bet.

He's better than any DB on our roster to my understanding. I wonder if he'd be cheap.

Edit- judging by the comments here he was more hyped up by dolphin fans than I realized.

Man, Marshall was really bad his last year or two here. But, signing him and seeing what he could bring to the table couldn't hurt.

I'm still hoping Norman wins his starting job back, shows out, and we move Captain back to the nickel primarily.

Does five nickels equal four quarters?

Nothing against the guy, but let's leave him in the past.

BRING HIM BACK!!!! Marshall is one of the ugliest man alive, but IMO a much better nickel corner than Captain.
