Free agent Richard Marshall is visiting the Dolphins

Free agent defensive back Richard Marshall revealed on Twitter Tuesday night that he is en route to Miami for a facility visit with the Dolphins.

Marshall has experience at both cornerback and safety. He filled in at free safety with the Cardinals last season when Kerry Rhodes was injured, and performed admirably. Versatility is one of Marshall’s primary strengths.

The Dolphins need a third cornerback. They also need better play at free safety.

So this looks like a good fit.

    Who?

    We trade a Pro Bowl receiver in his prime and set up an interview with a nickle CB?

    Does Ireland know that the suck for luck race is over?

    don’t know too much about him, but we could always use more defensive back depth…so as long as he isnt a bust like gibril wilson, ill be happy

    Richard Marshall is a pretty decent player. Good DB and can play a little safety

    Always liked Marshall. I never fully understood why the Panthers let him go last year. He and Chris Gamble were a pretty good duo for a few years together.

    They also need a number 1 reciever

    The CB market is drying up fast.

    Isn’t this the same guy PFT said was overrated last year?

    I really hate Ross and Ireland…

    I guess Miami is going for the 1st overall pick next year.

    BREAKING NEWS – Miami trades Jake Long and Cameron Wake to the Patriots for a 2019 6th round pick…

    News flash Ireland: It’s okay to have two players with the same last name on the same team. So next time you don’t really have to trade our BEST FREAKING PLAYER off to avoid confusion when signing a backup DB.

    Marshall is a serviceable, not shutdown, corner. He is a SUPER NICKLE and can play SS’FS in a pinch and is actually a decent returner.

    The Panthers made a mistake and tendered him at the low end of the spectrum and Az. doubled it. Now he is looking to make another $3mm per season and he will get it.

    I would love to see Marshall back in Carolina and see Munnerlyn riding his bicycle out of here, down I-85 to Atlanta!
