Though his signing may have flown under the national radar, Richard Marshall has already made an impact on the Dolphins defense, emerging as one of the unit’s early leaders.

The first-year Dolphins cornerback joined The Finsiders to talk about defensive adjustments and how pace can affect production.

After a lackluster performance in the preseason opener, Marshall said defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle told the first-team defense in meetings that they need to “play with their hair on fire.”

“I don’t know what the problem was and why we weren’t getting to the ball fast, but the second group definitely showed what we want our defense to be,” Marshall said.

The Miami Dolphins released a short statement on Sunday night announcing the termination of Chad Johnson’s contract, officially ending his homecoming in Miami after 61 days.

Here’s some of the Dolphins’ reaction to Johnson’s release:
