Hey Chris Chambers, you are next. You were worse than Welker, and he is a shrimp with no skills but a lot of heart. Hopefully we get half for you. As for randy, he is a team cancer, and you can see how useless he is by the amount of takers we had while trying to trade him. He's worthless, literally! Joey Porter, Uncle Cam wants you!!!

not really liking the move with welker,he was the heart and soul of an otherwise lackluster offense.That being said,if you can get the value for him and improve through the draft,why not?

I like McMichael but I saw too many drops, he wasn't worse than the other recievers but he wasn't any better either.

I'm all for rebuilding but am not sure I agree with 2 of the 3 moves.

McMichaels was a lot more productive last year than the new guy. Just cutting him doesn't make much sense.
Chambers is the guy we should really be shoppping.

We also just cut the best QB on the football team while Mr. 47% winning percentage sits there making 6 mil a year to watch the games from a sky box.

Hopefully they are trying to get something for Daunte and will resign Harrington.

Here I am the big dummy who just had to have a new Welker jersey when they offered them up for sale last year. Now he's a Patsie to boot. Just great.

Bad move IMO.

Now, if they could get rid of Chief little hands (Culpepper) and pick up a QB in the draft, if not Quinn, maybe Chris Leak or Troy Smith, we can start building this offense.

The offense was not getting it done - change was necessary and they're getting it done - taking care of business. I agree Chambers should be next on the chopping block - he has been an under achiever. I like what Mueller and Cam are doing - I think we're headed in the right direction.

Now we are getting preposterios with the house cleaning. All the players we are letting go are getting great contracts with otheer teams that find them valuable. Welker, Carter and McIntosh to start with.

I have not seen any building here. Cam, I sure hope you know what you are doing. Just because you made it to being a head coach does not mean you know everything. This FAN will just watch and hope I am not shaking my head next season AGAIN.

i don't see mueller and cameron sticking around too long, in three years it will be another major overhaul when mueller resigns after years of bad mistakes and cameron is fired after not making the playoffs. i understand the moves to clear dead players from the team and to get rid of high priced veterans on their way out like carter, but mcmichael is in his prime and to not keep him on the team is a culpepper type of move from mueller and cameron. who do the dolphins go out and get some second string player from GB? it bad enough culpepper sucks but to not even give him a chance to be good by getting rid of a great receiving TE is absurd! look at culpepper when he was successful in minnesota, who was the leading receiver those years in catches...not moss, it was their TE! mueller has failed in the past to build a team and i think after a year or two he will pull a satan and jump ship. by the time the dolphins start signing free agents their won't be anyone with any talent left to sign. you can't expect to build your team only through the draft, you need veterans on both sides of the ball to lead and to teach the younger players, but the reality is that the dolphins best players are taylor and thomas, and if i were them i would ask to be traded or what seems like the thing to do this year...cut, that way they have a CHANCE to at least make the playoffs once more in their career. miami will once again be the laughing stock of football...right next to millen and his detroit lions.

Wholly crap!!! Did somone file a police report because Mueller just robbed the Pats!! A 2nd AND a 7th for a tiny receiver who scored 1 TD in 2 years?? Are you serious?? Great move. A sixth for old man dan wilkenson...geeze, this guy mueller is the man. Now we take our 1st an one of those 2nd rounders and try and move up for a QB...can anyone say The Mighty Quinn???

Good riddance to McMichael!!!!

I'm sick of waiting for his "breakout" year. Hopefully Chambers is next on the chopping block and we can bring in some more players with Welker's heart.

BTW Jets get Thomas Jones (former RB STUD with Bears) for essentially nothing. Swapping of 2nd round pick. JETS moving up...Dolphins taking a dirtnap! LMAO, MORE GREEN JERSEYS AT THE TURDBOWL IN MIAMI GARDENS!! LMAO

Being an Oregonian I have some sadness seeing Joey leave the Dolphins. I truly believe his best football is still ahead. It was time for Randy to go, no question. But the real loss is Wes Welker. Players who demonstrate such courage, class, and dedication are hard to find. They're the people you build your team around. Good luck Wes, you're the player the Dolphins will regret letting slip away.
