The SportsXchange

The Miami Dolphins terminated the contract of veteran cornerback Richard Marshall, the team announced Wednesday.

The Dolphins tried to trade Marshall but found no takers, reported Tuesday. He was listed as a starter on the Dolphins' depth chart ahead of Dimitri Patterson and Nolan Carroll.

As a free agent, Marshall can sign with any team. If there are no takers, the Dolphins might be interested in re-signing him, according to

After signing a three-year, $16 million contract with the Dolphins in 2012, Marshall was able to play in only four games last season because of a back problem. He was placed on injured reserve in November.

By releasing Marshall now, the Dolphins won't have to pay his $4.55 million base salary in 2013. He had a $5.3 million base for 2014.

Before he joined the Dolphins, Marshall played six years for the Carolina Panthers and one season for the Arizona Cardinals.
