Dolphins released DE Mario Williams, OT Brandon Albert

The Miami Dolphins are releasing Branden Albert according to the NFL’s official website

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL.com, the Miami Dolphins have released offensive tackle Branden Albert.

The Dolphins aren't keeping left tackle Branden Albert, but they found out quickly that there was sufficient interest in him elsewhere that they might get something for him.

He saw his snaps drop significantly over the course of the season with the Dolphins and finished the year playing a shade under 39 percent of the team's defensive snaps according to Pro Football Reference.

Now, he's moving over to left tackle, the position that made him a highly regarded prospect. Albert is going to lose his job to Laremy Tunsil, and it seems like Williams has become less and less useful as time goes on. Albert was the first guard taken in the 2008 NFL Draft, as well as the second Virginia Cavalier (behind No. 2 pick Chris Long). They have some options in-house, and then there's always the draft and free agency.

CCTV of 'female assassin' wanted over Kim Jong-Un half-brother's murder
The 46-year-old Kim Jong-Nam had been living overseas after falling from grace in 2001 for visiting Disneyland in Tokyo. The South Korean government is assisting Malaysian authorities with the investigation into Jong Nam's death.

Albert, 32, has struggled with injures in recent years but still played fairly well when healthy. He signed a two-year, $17 million deal a year ago, but has failed to live up to his expectations. He hasn't played all 16 games since 2011 with Kansas City. At one point during the season, Joseph called out Williams' lack of effort. (Remember those three times when Jay Ajayi ran for 200+ yards in a game?) Now, the offensive line goes from a strength, albeit one limited by injuries, to a major question mark. Jacksonville is projected to have more than $67 million in cap space, putting the team in position to afford Albert.

Players of Albert's pedigree are usually cut closer to the start of free agency. There's a pattern emerging here.

Parents are insisting to know whether the school knew about the video prior to Monday, since it was recorded a month before that date.

As for compensation, the Dolphins will be asking for a draft pick or a player, or even both. Mitchell, 29, contributed 40 tackles and no sacks in the 21 games he played the last two seasons.

The Miami Dolphins have seen enough of Mario Williams.
