Free agent defensive back Richard Marshall revealed on Twitter late Wednesday that he has agreed to terms with the Miami Dolphins on a three-year deal.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter has the numbers on Marshall’s deal: It’s worth $16 million, with $6 million guaranteed.
We mentioned Marshall’s visit to the Dolphins on Tuesday night. The Fins closed the deal, convincing Marshall he wouldn’t need to meet with any other teams.
Marshall was a top-35 player on the PFT Hot 100 because he is versatile, young, and an efficient tackler. The 27-year-old secured three interceptions and racked up 78 tackles last season, starting 9-of-16 games for the Cardinals.
He is probably ticketed for nickel back in Miami, but also could emerge as a starter at free safety.
