Quick Shot Breaking News: Dansby and Cromartie

The Arizona Cardinals have informed LB Karlos Dansby they will not franchise him but instead will try and re-sign him after the start of free agency. Dansby, a Miami Dolphins fan favorite to land in Miami will be the highest profile FA on the market and a bidding war is expected. That takes Miami out of the picture.

The San Diego Chargers are shopping CB Antonio Cromartie for a RB. The Dolphins will not likely be interested in Cromartie with the additions of Sean Smith and Vontae’ Davis last year but they may talk about moving a RB if there is interest.

    Any idea which RB would be shopped? RB is coming off a foot injury, RW is 33, Hilliard is unproven but looked good, and Cobbs is coming off knee surgery. At the start of the season, the running back corps was our strongest asset. Hopefully, it will return to form by next season.

    I do not want to see RW traded. Let him have one more season as a Dolphin. If RB comes back healthy, they will still be a potent 1-2 punch. A sleeper running back pick is Toby Gerhardt of Stanford. Kid has heart and is a beast. Could be a steal in the 2nd or 3rd. We have other needs but I like this guy.

      From Miami? No, I don’t think we would trade for him and I don’t think that Miami needs him that bad. I wrote that as a recent news report about him being shopped not necessarily a Dolphins trade.

    Brian, I agree in part with Dashall2. I don’t think there is a need to deal for Cromartie. I do think they should go after Dansby despite the bidding war. With Dansby and Crowder in Nolan’s D scheme the Phins can look elsewhere with the first pick, could possibly trade down a few picks and draft Sergio Kindle.

    I like DT Cam Thomas, North Carolina Height: 6-4. Weight: 331 possibly as a #3 pick or NT Kade Weston, Georgia Height: 6-5. Weight: 320 as a #4 pick.

    I also, in the 6th & 7th rounds like: RB LaMarcus Coker, Hampton Height: 5-11. Weight: 205. Projected 40 Time: 4.32. (Has issues but would be a steal in later rounds); WR David Gettis, Baylor Height: 6-4. Weight: 209. Projected 40 Time: 4.44; DE C.J. Wilson, East Carolina Height: 6-3. Weight: 284; T Zane Beadles, Utah Height: 6-4. Weight: 307; FS Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith, UTEP Height: 6-2. Weight: 205; G Marshall Newhouse, TCU Height: 6-3. Weight: 326; OLB Arthur Moats, James Madison Height: 6-2. Weight: 250

    Guys that could go real late or undrafted I like are: WR Jeff Moturi, UTEP Height: 6-0. Weight: 190. Projected 40 Time: 4.43; CB Walter McFadden, Auburn Height: 5-11. Weight: 178. Projected 40 Time: 4.43; FS Jordan Lake, Baylor Height: 6-2. Weight: 205; FS Randy Phillips, Miami Height: 6-1. Weight: 210; QB Matt Nichols, Eastern Washington Height: 6-2. Weight: 220; FB Matt Clapp, Oklahoma Height: 6-3. Weight: 234. Projected 40 Time: 4.69; TE Jeff Cottam, Tennessee Height: 6-8. Weight: 260. Projected 40 Time: 4.65; T Mike Aguayo, UTEP Height: 6-4. Weight: 300; G Kurtis Gregory, Missouri Height: 6-5. Weight: 308; and C Chris Hall, Texas Height: 6-4. Weight: 300.

      We won’t deal for Cromartie. Reason is Ricky Williams isn’t what SD is looking for and Ronnie Brown is more valuable vs. what we actually need. Cobb is coming off an injury and Hilliard is too raw.

      Aside from all of that…I don’t think the Phins need him.

        Yes, it was horrific but at the same time, it should serve as a reminder to the Phins management why Wilson shouldn’t be here.

        Does anyone else get the feeling though that he will be? Seems these Dolphins coaches think they can change the way people play.
