Former Chief Branden Albert released by Dolphins

Posted February 18, 2017

After signing with the Miami Dolphins less than a year ago, Mario Williams was cut for the second time in his career yesterday.

The New York Jets recently declined Ryan Clady's option for next season, as did the Jacksonville Jaguars with Kelvin Beachum, making the free agent market pretty damn interesting at the offensive tackle position.

Whatever way Albert finds his way out of Miami, the Dolphins will be moving Tunsil from the left guard position (where he played as a rookie due only to Albert's presence) to the left tackle position.

North Korea's Malaysian murder mystery
Foreign media had reported that Kim Chol was actually Kim Jong-nam, an elder half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. He is believed to have been born May 10, 1971, although birthdays are always unclear for senior North Koreans, Gause said.

The dumping of Williams comes as little surprise after the 32-year-old pass rusher recorded just 1.5 sacks during a campaign that saw him critiqued by former defensive play-caller Vance Joseph as a veteran who needed to "play harder". He was scheduled to be paid $8.9 million and would have counted $10.6 million against the cap in 2017.

The Herald reports the Dolphins are also releasing defensive tackle Earl Mitchell and cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu.

Money wouldn't be an option with either, as the Dolphins are expected to have some $50 million in cap space.

After releasing a couple of former third round picks in Billy Turner and Dallas Thomas, the line became a major reason why the Dolphins eventually wound up in the postseason.

It's been widely believed that the Dolphins were grooming Tunsil to be their long term answer at left tackle. He lost his starting job at defensive end in October and appeared in 13 games (five starts) for Miami in 2016.

Williams, 32, will likely only receive one-year offers after a disappointing campaign. In the 35 games he played for the Dolphins, including 12 last season, he was a starter. Williams, an 11-year veteran, started the season's first five games before being replaced by Cameron Wake, who turned in a Pro Bowl worthy season from that point on. The Dolphins drafted him in the first round in 2016 so it was only natural.
