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.
