The Miami Dolphins released cornerback Richard Marshall only a year after signing him to a three-year contract, reports the Miami Herald.

The move clears $4.55 million in salary.

Marshall signed a three-year, $16 million contract last season, but only played four games due to a back injury. He was paid $6 million for those four games.

Marshall was in competition for a starting cornerback job with Jimmy Wilson.
