We reported along with Dan over at TheLandryHat, that something is in the works between the Miami Dolphins and the Dallas Cowboys regarding the number 1 overall pick. Now, it appears that either ESPNs’ Chris Mortenson has caught wind of something himself, or he finally decided to read our blog. Either way, he too is reporting that something is going on and that RB Marion Barber is a part of it.
We have been talking about this now for the better part of a month…yes we are patting ourselves on the back, one of our readers, Shane, thought this would be a good idea, back before we even heard anything out of our sources in Dallas, so again, sorry Mort, but thanks for reading our blogs. Back on January 5th, we had this to say. Or you can go all the way back to January 3rd and read this.
O.k. enough chest thumping, the fact is this is a very good trade for the Miami Dolphins. Do we need a Marion Barber in Miami? Yes. Chatman is a FA and although he played really well, Barber is better and a combination of MB and Brown is very nice. With Chatman gone, Gado would likely be resigned and the fact is he played his rear off when given the chance. With Lorenzo Booker showing a lot of promise as well, our RB situation could look like this. Ronnie Brown, Marion Barber, Samkon Gado, and LoBo. So what about Ricky Williams? My guess is he ends up back in Dallas, close to him mom. I would almost have to guess that Ricky will be part of any deal with the Boyz’. You heard that here first as well.
So the rumor sits at Miami’s number 1 (1 overall) for the Boyz’ 2 1st rounders, numbers 22 and 28 and RB Marion Barber. Let me just throw this out there as well.
