Tony McDaniel:

The DT was traded for a 7th round pick to the Dolphins. The Jaguars used that pick in the trade with the Patriots; to get Derek Cox. With the pick the Patriots selected a steal of the draft; WR Julius Edelman. The defensive tackle played in every game; recorded 1.5 sacks and 13 tackles.  He was considered by a good pickup among the Dolphins fans. He is still a young player who can develop. These are the reasons I give him the following note. Grade for letting him go: B

Brian Williams:

“B-Dub”; as fans often called him; was a bit of a surprise to being cut when the final roster was announced before the ’09 campaign. Then Williams signed with the Atlanta Falcons.  He was reunited with former Jaguars defensive coach Mike Smith; who took over as the Falcons head coach in 2008 (With all the respect to current DC Mel Tucker: We miss you Smithy- big time!). Brian just like Pashos played 5 games; started all of them. He had 18 tackles; 3 PDs; and 1 pick. Unfortunately he had torn his ACL defending a pass against the Bears which put him on IR. He was resigned for 1 more year by the Falcons recently. Grade for letting him go: B-
