Richard Marshall lands a three-year deal with Miami
For free agent cornerback Richard Marshall, all it took was one visit.
For the Miami Dolphins, it took $16 million.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Dolphins and Marshall have reached an agreement on a three-year contract worth $16 million, with $6 million guaranteed.
A six-year veteran out of Fresno State, Marshall spent the first five years of his career in Carolina playing across from Chris Gamble before jumping to the Arizona Cardinals for a one-year stint last season. While in Miami, Marshall called the Cardinals personally and gave the team an opportunity to match the offer, but the organization denied, per Mike Jurecki of XTRA 910.
With 17 interceptions spread out over six years, Marshall brings some much-needed depth to a Miami secondary that ranked 25th in the NFL against the pass last season.
