The Miami Dolphins have released veteran cornerback Richard Marshall.
Marshall confirmed the news via his official Twitter account. He wasn't starting with the arrivals of Brent Grimes, Jamar Taylor and Will Davis and was due a $4.55 million base salary this season after signing a three-year, $16 million contract last year.
"I had a great time playing for the Dolphins," Marshall wrote. "I appreciate all the love from the fans but its time to move on."
Marshall started four games last season before being placed on injured reserve with a back injury. He finished with 17 tackles and one interception.
Marshall has previous stints with the Carolina Panthers and the Arizona Cardinals.
Marshall lined up at safety during his final practice with the team.
When asked about that development, coach Joe Philbin told reporters: “It’s just a preparation type of thing covering different potential things that may happen from a depth standpoint."
However, it turned out Marshall wasn't in the Dolphins' plans at all.
