They are saying it may be a money thing, but he's only making $750K.

Quote:
But Martin seemed safe. Even those in his camp seemed to believe that there was nothing to worry about.

“I think it was a shock to all of us,” Terry Williams, Martin’s South Carolina-based agent, said Saturday afternoon. “It totally surprised me and David. He’s in great shape, probably better shape than he was in 2008. They didn’t really have anything negative to say about him. I guess there’s always the possibility they could bring him back after a week or two.”

When Martin called Williams with the news Saturday morning, the agent thought it was “going to be about his living arrangements the next six months.” Instead, it was bad news, and it’s not like the Dolphins have made any assurances to Williams or Martin that they will take him back once they get past Week 1 and veteran contracts can become non-guaranteed.

“We’ll see what happens,” Williams said. “If somebody gets him [on the waiver wire] before the Dolphins do, that’s the way it goes and they understand that. I think he’ll get picked up somewhere.”

It’s not like Martin was breaking the bank. He was signed for just $755,000 on a one-year deal.

“He had just signed a basic veteran agreement,” Williams said. “David wanted to get back on a team and prove he wasn’t injured anymore. There’s nothing quirky in there to make them want to get rid of him. He’s got a veteran salary, and in an uncapped year, I just don’t see where that’s a consideration. I can’t imagine it was [due to] budget. … I don’t know what their thinking is. That’s their business.”

This one really surprises me. Maybe there's another TE we don't know about that was cut today, because if we don't have David we have depth issues at TE.

He's a good TE. They worried about the "paper" issue.

True. His salary would have been guaranteed if he was on the roster Wk. 1

Why are the f*cking around with this? Makes absolutely ZERO sense.
