Dolphins Were Considering Cutting Brandon Marshall?

Izzy Gould of the Florida Sun-Sentinel writes that Stephan Ross, the owner of the Miami Dolphins, has been dealing with fan protests in recent weeks after a shaky start to the off-season, which began with the Dolphins trading away Pro-Bowl WR Brandon Marshall.

Gould writes that Ross has reached out to one fan by telephone.  This fan mentioned that during the phone call, “[Ross] said they had been shopping [Marshall] for a couple weeks.” The fan goes on to reveal that “nobody would return their phone calls about getting him.  If Chicago didn’t take [Marshall] … they would have ended up cutting him very shortly after that, and got nothing.

It’s hard to tell whether Ross is serious about his comments or whether this was designed to ease tension between and angry fan base and the team.

The Dolphins now seem to be in a rebuilding phase after trading Marshall away and being unable able to sign both QB Peyton Manning and QB Matt Flynn during free agency.

    Anyone who actually thinks he would have cut a top 5 receiver in the league who just made the pro bowl is foolish. He obviously told that fan this and let the story get out just so he can save face with his fan base.
