    never cared much about him. not sure why many Dolphins fans did. He wasn't much of a runner, maybe a good pass catcher.

    He played last year at 1.8 million I believe. In this deep RB class you can find a guy to play at that price for 3 years and do things that he provided.

    Its like Michael Thomas as well.

    These are guys we retained at a higher price than what they would of gotten in FA last year because of our great lockerroom after 2016.

    A year later and now it has been stated that the culture inside the lockerroom was bad and Gase is getting “his guys”.

    The only thing that fractured the “culture” of the lockerroom was a group of offensive playmakers that had to deal with Cutler throwing the ball and a group of defensive players who endured one of the worst stretches of offensive football in NFL history with Cutler throwing the ball. They can sell other narratives to someone else.

    But we’ll see. Anyway for a team with less than desirable cap issues, you have to trust the draft process to get a suitable replacement far cheaper at RB.

    This is why he wasn't resigned.

    He met the minimum requirements for the position he played. We can do worse than him but it's a safer bet we'll do better.

    He played a big part in helping Miami win 6 games in a row last year, so for that I am thankful to him. Good luck in KC. I am excited to have new blood in the RB room along with Kenyon.

    I liked him. Underrated as a pass blocker and receiver. I remember that undrafted DE in a preseason practice who was talking smack to Damien and he ended his career with a vicious block. Suh had to pull him aside...

    Makes sense given everything else he has told us. All in folks. Players have got to be all in.

    Once again, a player leaves and we immediately hear about what a piece of garbage he was. This is really becoming a trend with this team.

    I’m glad he’s gone if only because now Gase can’t give him priority over Drake, like he did after the Ajayi trade.

    I liked him when he wore 34... reminded me of the great Ricky a little bit. But outside of the name and number.... meh. He was really good at catching the rock, I'll give him that

    There was nothing about how Williams play that remotely came close to Ricky Williams.

    Williams was a undrafted fa rookie we got a ton of value out of. He played a bit uninterested for my tastes last year but improved when Ajayi was let go. Made some dumb decisions at time. Still need a decent rookie Drake gets banged up easily

    He's at best an average player, and makes as many bonehead mistakes as good plays. That makes him below average in my book. Won't be missed.

    I wish him luck nonetheless. He's a weapon out of the backfield on passsing downs and has special teams value (NOT as a returner -- still can't believe we had him there at one point).

    Frank Gore at 35 years old is a significant upgrade.

    Good! Time for new blood. Tired of constantly holding on to JAGs from 6-8 win teams. Matt Moore needs canned as well.

    Solid if unspectacular 3rd down back. We got mileage out of him, and he had some good moments, but easy to improve on

    Well let's be fair in the case of Michael Thomas. Great locker room guy, but worthless on defense. While he was a good ST player, the team decided Aiken was more of a priority for ST.

    And I think thats fine and maybe even an upgrade. Aikens has made some plays out there on ST the last couple of years, and is a much better athlete than thomas too

    I will always remember that one play by Williams: Thursday night against Buffalo in 2014. I think it was 3rd and 16 or 18. It was probably the only time we converted a RB dump off on 3rd and long for a first down. Loved that play.

    He was good in the passing game and blocking. He's someone you like to have for depth but not someone to get pissed because we let him go. Good luck on Chiefs.
