Cornerback DeAngelo Hall once received $8 million for eight games with the Raiders. Cornerback Richard Marshall has emerged from Miami with an even better per-game rate.
Per a source with knowledge of Marshall’s contract, Marshall exits the Dolphins with $6.1 million — and he played in only four games.
The cash comes from a signing bonus of $3.5 million, a fully-guaranteed 2012 base salary of $2.5 million, and workout bonuses of $50,000 in 2012 and 2013.
The Dolphins will carry cap charge of $1.16 million in 2013 and 2014 for Marshall, who is free to sign with any other team.
