Dolphins tap the brakes on cutting Branden Albert

Dolphins tap the brakes on cutting Branden Albert

The Miami Dolphins plan to cut Albert, according a report from NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

The release of Albert also allows the Dolphins to look long term instead of short term. The aging left tackle, whose played the last three seasons with the Dolphins, has had difficulty remaining healthy.

Williams, 32, contributed 13 tackles and 1.5 sacks in the 13 games he played last season.

Teams looking for a solid left tackle could look to guys like Riley Reiff, Kelvin Beachum, and Albert to shore up their weak offensive line.

That being said, don't be shocked if the veteran is considering retirement after battling injuries for several years.

The Dolphins will save $20.4 million in salary cap space with the four moves, affording themselves flexibility to either retain upcoming free agents (including receiver Kenny Stills and defensive end Andre Branch), find new free agents or possibly extend the contracts of players such as receiver Jarvis Landry and safety Reshad Jones. He started all 35 games he played for the Dolphins, including 12 last season.

Albert was due to make $8.88 million this year.

The Dolphins surprised everyone last season by surging after a awful start and making the playoffs.

Williams, 32, saw little action after signing a $17 million, two-year deal in 2016. He was a first round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Given John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan talking about football passion, I just don't see them considering Williams. Albert hasn't appeared in more than 14 games in any of the past five years, and seemed in steep decline last season.
