The Dolphins terminated Ward's contract, as well as that of linebacker Twan Russell. Russell is a good guy in the locker room and a solid special teams player, but his body has been breaking down in recent years and he wasn't a factor on defense anyway.

The veteran wideout and punt returner was among five players who were let go on Wednesday. The move shouldn't have come as much of a surprise considering Ward struggled last season and Coach Dave Wannstedt has frequently mentioned that he wanted to upgrade the wideout group.
