I'm not sure if I agree with Mando's take, but what are we going to do with X? He has already said he wants more money, and I cannot blame him as he is the best player on the team but doesn't make the best money in the secondary.
If Howard wants more money, trade him. He is oft-injured and he isn't as good as he thinks he is.
What is the point of a contract if a player refuses to play it out? He signed that contract, recognizing at the time that he might outplay the contract, but (evidently) willing to give up a higher salary for the security that came with a long-term contract that the Dolphins were willing to give him, despite him coming off a serious injury. The Dolphings gambled and won. He gambled and lost.
