The charge is pending trial according to the official police report.\nMark A. Gottlieb, Walton's defense attorney, declined comment as well as his contract representatives at First Round Management.\nDespite the solid plays on Walton's part this season, it doesn't appear his talent was quite enough to keep him on board. In seven games with the Dolphins this season, Walton's 53 rushes for 201 yards averaged 3.8 yards per carry; he also made 15 receptions for 89 yards.\nComments on the Twitter post announcing the running back's cut commend the Dolphins for giving Walton another chance to play ball on their team despite his record, as well as going on to note that it's unfortunate that it didn't appear to change his character moving forward, but that it's good to see players being held accountable for their actions.\nOthers are praying for Walton's repentance & remorse, rooting for the player to take this as a reason to pick up his head and move on to brighter things.\nThere are stories everywhere!
