I thought we should have kept him. Every time we've tried to replace him, we've done worse. Let's hope that trend won't hold, 'cause now it's too late to go back.

I wish him well, but it's water over the dam. He's gone and so be it. Maybe if he and the rest of the O Line last year didn't resemble stadium turnstiles, the Dolphins would've paid him a higher buck. Time to move on. How about some more articles on who's with the team now rather who's left. Leave BS like this to the Kansas City Star to write about.

Are you whiners done you guys act like everyone the Fins let go was an all pro! What was our record last year,McIntosh make the pro bowl?Average LT at best and we have seen where these types of players have gotten us over the last several years.

Are we all forgetting how BAD the O'line has been the past few years and how angry all the fans have been because of it. Hello people out there, this is just what the doctor ordered. It is time to rebuild this unit from the ground up.

So Long and Good Luck. Damion did improve over the last season but, realize the miracle worker here is Houk. Cameron and Houk worked together before and be sure he valued his opinion before releasing him. One of the biggist marks against Damion was he isn't the brightest star upstairs between the ears(like Daunte Culp, and trust me, i've lived 3 miles from the University of Central Florida)for 15 years so I know).
Though Damion made progress, he's NOT worth the money KC gave him or Houk would have supported him with the way Miami need O-line help. I'm not expecting miracles this year, but I am expecting pro players to earn their money.
And, for what it's worth, I don't like the Porter signing. Somewhere in the math, character has to account for something, and I'm not impressed with his. His production slipped way down last year and the way he runs his mouth, he always provides fuel for the other team before games. The way the Patriots use that, we'll be lucky to win any games against them this year!

Good for him. I'm glad he got a nice contract.

Mac was better last season than a lot of people give him credit for (for some reason). He was our second-best lineman (behind Carey). He did a good job.

I wish him luck in KC.

If I was an NFL player, I'd hire Tessler immediately.$18 mil for a player the 6-10 Dolphins didn't even want! Props to McIntosh and his agent.

The Chiefs have a LT and a LG unlike the Dolphins. I hope letting McIntosh and James go were the right decisions.

Looks like the Fins are going to go after a couple of OL in the draft and there are a bunch of good ones - they will be young and Houk will teach them the right way.

The offense has been offensive the past several years - keep your powder dry and give Cam and Randy a chance. Heck it can't be any worse than the past few years.

When you count the number players that the Dolphins are dumping and take Mullers comments regarding the number of draft picks 2-3 he expects to contribute to the team the next couple of years I find it really hard to get excited about this team. FA has gotten very expensive very quicly this year and it does not appear we can sign the same quality player we lost in FA without spending alot more money. Couple that fact that the Dolphins really do not have that type of cap room it gets confusing. Cameron being a new coach with nothing but a 6-10 loosing record from Indiania on his resume and how can fans get excited and optomistic? This team feels and looks like an expansion team right now.

I am happy for Damion that he got such a nice contract. I guess that let's you know how high a value there is for LT, even an ordinary LT.

Miami needed to upgrade at the LT position and the Dolphins may believe that Anthony Alabi is ready to step up. He's 6'5, 315 lbs and he is a kid that Hudson Houck scouted personally.

I AM GLAD THEY LET THAT SORRY HAM N EGGER GO.. I AM GLAD HE GOT KC'S MONEY AND NOT THE FIN'S MONEY. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF WELKER (AND WE EVEN GOT TWO DRAFT PICKS FOR HIM) ALL THESE OTHER NINE TO FIVERS HAD TO GO! NOW WE JUST NEED CULPEPPER TO HIT THE ROAD AND WE WILL BE OK.
