No, no...incorrect there Rich. Miami placed him on Injured Reserve in Sep. But they CUT him on Dec 8th.
Interesting because I find several sites saying he was dropped in September.

Tight end David Martin was good enough to start 22 games for the Dolphins over the last two years, gaining a career high 450 yards for the team in 2008.
But you can't make the club in the tub, so the Dolphins cut ties with him Sunday. They are working to reach an injury settlement with the former Packer, who came to South Florida with expectations to break out as a receiving option. He was struggling with a knee injury.
Dolphins waive TE David Martin, claim Davon Drew http://www.dolphinsdaily.com/news/dolph ... n-drew.php
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - The Miami Dolphins have waived tight end David Martin and claimed Davon Drew off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens to replace him.
The Dolphins made the announcement Monday.
Drew was selected in the fifth round by the Ravens this year. The former East Carolina star was battling an ankle injury late in training camp and will be the fourth tight end on Miami's roster.
Martin had 31 catches for 450 yards and three touchdowns last season for Miami.
The Dolphins also finalized their practice squad Monday, which includes: defensive end Ryan Baker, cornerback Will Billingsley, linebackers J.D. Folsom and Danny Lansanah, offensive linemen Nate Garner and Mark Lewis, and receivers James Robinson and Julius Pruitt.

It's a moot point. He didn't play for them in 2009 and it was because of an injury, not performance based. In 2008, he was easily our best downfield threat.
