Dolphins Will Be Better off Without CB Richard Marshall

Richard Marshall was a good slot corner but that's it. The Dolphins cut a good slot corner so they're a worse team in 2013 because of the release. But they already HAVE a good slot corner, and they didn't need to keep paying $5 million for a player that essentially should have been their backup slot corner (which puts him what, like 5th down the depth chart?).
When you lose depth you've got a technically less talented team. No denying that. But you also lose about $10 million in salary obligations for 2013 and 2014 and that's a much bigger gain.
