Miami Dolphins release former top draft pick DE Mario Williams

Miami Dolphins release former top draft pick DE Mario Williams”

The top offensive tackle in the draft had an incriminating video of him allegedly smoking marijuana released minutes before the draft clock began to tick.

The 32-year-old was drafted in 2008 by the Kansas City Chiefs as a 15th overall pick. But Albert struggled to stay healthy in his three years with the Dolphins, and Miami has spent all of last season grooming Laremy Tunsil, the team's 2016 first-round pick, to serve as his replacement.

One potential option at guard may be tackle Branden Albert, who will be released by the Dolphins, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Earl Mitchell started 24 games at defensive tackle for Miami's disappointing defensive line, which was a major factor in Miami's opponents averaging 140 rushing yards per game against the Dolphins (ranked 30th).

Tunsil played left guard during the majority of his rookie season but was a tackle in college.

The Knicks posted an NBA-record operating profit of $141 million past year , despite a losing 32-50 season record. That's a 378 percent increase from 2011, when the average franchise was worth $369 million .

Now going full circle Tunsil has an opportunity to prove he was worth the risk on draft night and to be a piece of a playoff team in Miami.

And why, one might ask, would a team trade for Albert if the Dolphins' early intentions were to cut him anyway?

This is in conjunction with cutting LT Branden Albert, as the Dolphins work to clear off cap space. He had 1.5 sacks last season, a massive disappointment. Albert hasn't appeared in more than 14 games in any of the past five years, and seemed in steep decline last season.

Last season with Miami, Albert played in 12 games, posting a Pro Football Focus grade of 42.2 - the worst of his career.
