Jason Taylor To Trade The Dolphins For Tom Brady


Ted Ginn Jersey - Photo Credit - Brian MillerI was going to let this die a quiet death.  I posted this the other day on a Miami Dolphins fan forum I sometimes frequent, basically for grins and to stir up the peeps (Easter joke).  Now I see that it is being discussed on the Miami Herald Armando Salguero blog and figured, well, may as well say something to resurrect the issue (Easter again).

On the Dan Patrick show earlier this week, Jason Taylor was asked what he would do with the picks in this draft if he were in position to make the picks. 

“I would trade our 53 for Tom Brady,” Taylor said. “I would trade our entire roster for Tom Brady.”

Now of course we all know that Jason is friends with Tom Brady and that he has a lot of respect for him as well.  We also know that the Miami Dolphins are not exactly a who’s who of NFL players.  My first thought when I heard the quote was, “well this should stir up the locals”.  My second thought was and still is “big deal”.

As it has been pointed out from several readers of the above mentioned forum, other Phin forums, and the Salguero blog, that statement from the only “face” of this current franchise was a little over the top.  Although I agree that it probably should not have been made, I really do not think that the intention was to cause any animosity.  After all, how many players on a 1-15 team can honestly take offense?  How many of those same players wouldn’t agree that the Patriots would turn it down?

For the record JT…you may want to change that figure though, your one of the 53 man roster which means that Brady would be here and you would be with the other 52 up there. 

 

IN OTHER NEWS:  According to a report in the Fl. Sun-Sentinel, Chad Henne may be the choice with the 32nd pick in the draft.  Henne, per the above, is rising on the Dolphins wish list.  Personally, I think it’s a smokescreen.

    Chad Henne is my overall favorite QB in the draft. If we take him in the 2nd round early or late I would be totally cool with that. What I find curious is that everyone is so quick to give up on Beck. It normally takes about 3 years for a QB to really come into his own in the NFL, let alone if your on one of the worst teams in NFL history. I have yet to hear a real explination why to write him off. Provide me with one if you can.

    can’t do it…nope…no I can’t…and neither can anyone else…

    Spoon:  Beats me.  I like Beck and love his work ethic.  I don’t know if he will be a great NFL QB but I think he should be a solid one given the right guidance and time.

    We`ve got so many needs, why not gamble that Beck will pan out. He`ll be better with a line that will give him 3 seconds. Against Buffalo they had 8 in the box on almost every play ,how could you possibly judge a rookie with that line? Trade #1  to K.C. for their# 5 and second rounder,they can have Ryan. St.Louis will draft a Long,Atlanta will draft the other Long, Raiders take McFadden and we get the next coming of Lawrence Taylor…Gholston!!!and 3 if not 4 (sorry Jason Taylor is going to get traded) second rounders.Gosder Cherilus next to help our O-line, Dan Connor as a middle linebacker of the future, the best remaining corner and wide out also in that round. And with the first pick in the third which could be a second really,a tight end would help the cause immensly.

    I like Beck and his work ethic but age will always be held against him in some quarters. And I can’t see McClown being the guy to boost Becks game any. As fot JT’s comment? I’m with the ‘Big Deal’ crowd :-) I think the media sometimes look for more meaning than is there in comments. Hey, it’s the off season: they have to fill column room with something! LOL

    I like the idea of waiting for Beck’s to pan out as well, but I am also on the franchise QB train and I don’t think Beck’s will ever through from 35 touchdowns in a season. So I would not be heartbroken at all if we spent a pick on a QB to at least hedge our bets down the road. I like your draft breakdown Jeremy, Gholston would be sweet, but I don’t think Connor will fall to the second round. I’m still hoping that we can sucker Dallas’ two first rounder out of Jerry Jones and draft Kenny Phillips and Connor.
