The Miami Dolphins cut ties with CB Richard Marshall today to save some dough on their salary cap. Marshall was listed as the Dolphins starting corner opposite of Brent Grimes on the depth chart, but they have decided to move in a different direction.

The San Diego Chargers are in need of any help in the secondary. If you can breathe, the Chargers are probably looking in your direction. If you have experience starting in games, then you likely are higher on the priority list than the guy that can just breathe.

Marshall has been a starter for the last 4 seasons and he spent a season under Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt with the Arizona Cardinals. Marshall is a versatile player also, which the Chargers love. He can either play safety or play corner. He seems like a decent fit…. if the price is right.  If the price is right.

The Chargers have Derek Cox, Shareece Wright and Johnny Patrick as corners that will likely make the roster. Beyond them, things get a little sketchy.

    Even with the injury proneness, I’d take him if the price is right! He can defend well.
