Super Hero Retires, Could CB Be Traded?


The Miami Dolphins did nothing to keep the New England Patriots from going undefeated 3 years ago.  David Tyree, the Super Bowl hero did.  Today, he signed with the NY Giants so that he could retire.

While this news is hardly significant on a lot of levels, especially considering that Tyree really never did much in his NFL career.  His legacy will forever be replayed when he made his helmet catch late in the 4th quarter that kept a scrambling Eli Manning in the game long enough to win it and incidentally cap the greatest choke in sports history when the then undefeated Patriots fell in the biggest game.

Thanks Tyree for allowing the Dolphins legacy of “Undefeatedtown” to remain in tact!

IN other news, Baltimore Ravens CB Dominique Foxworthwill miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL.  The Miami Dolphins have a few CB’s on their roster and the Ravens suddenly are very thin.  Could a trade be possible? 

The first thought may be former starter Will Allen who would have value in a trade.  Starting experience and now healthy, the Ravens would shore up the depletion with a corner that some thought was Pro-Bowl worthy.

The problem of course is that trading Allen would leave the Dolphins a little thin.  Perhaps they could trade Jason Allen who would at least provide some depth for their depleted unit.

If there is one thing for certain, training camp injuries often bring up trade talks and rumors.  Something to keep in mind.

    Please do not trade Will Allen… Jason Allen, fine, but Will must stay. We are still not all that solid at CB… I think we will be, but the young ones have some learning to do.

    I’m content with the idea. We wouldn’t have to pay his ridiculous salary. Plus YB and other teammates have raved about Nolan Carroll who has the ideal size and speed for a nickel corner. Here’s the problem though. I wouldn’t trade W. Allen for anything less than a 2nd rnd pick. Though he’s not worth that high of a draft pick he helps out the youngsters quite a bit. I’d pull the trigger under those circumstances, but thats just me.

    I am one who dose not like that idea. There are questions as to how good Smith really is or how good can he be, Carroll may have impressed during OTA but thats OTAs and is very unproven. You stick to the known and the known it that Will Allen is the only sure thing with Miami’s CB. I mean no one can even say how good Davis will be this year so why give up your insurance? Will Allen, before his injuries was one of the highest rated CBs in the league.

    The other thing is that MIami plays the Ravens this year. So why aide them in their problem? That one game could be the difference between Miami making the playoffs and missing it and chances are that it will turn out to be a high scoring game.
