Let’s speculate…Trade’s that will be made once lock out is over

According to multiple sources and even our Editor, we are so close to the lockout being lifted that we can finally smell the fresh cut CBA.

So why not throw out some ideas on player movement…Yes we can finally talk about player movement.  Lets start with the first surprise trade of the season:

    Bahamas, if Miami does get Finely, this would make our O one of the top in terms of talent. It would be great to surround Henne with all these weapons, and I can agree with your logic.

    “Big Aly” that’s funny

    Zach Miller is a free agent so I think the Dolphins should explore that avenue before going after Finley, if nothing else but to save themselves from having to give up draft picks. However, if the Dolphins do go after a tight end in free agency or in a trade with the Packers, I will start to have some respect for them and hope for the future of this organization. Like you stated, the Dolphins organization has ignored this position for many, many years. So if they were to actually notice that is is a vital postion worthy of attacking by signing an elite player I feel it will instantly move us one step closer to a Super Bowl.

      DF – are you sure Miller’s a UFA? I thought i read somewhere he was only restricted, very similar to Michael Bush, and the Raiders both put qaulifying offers on both players.

      • dolphinsfreak

        From everything I have read Zach Miller IS a free agent, but the Raiders plan to make him their first signing. Pro Football Weekly – “The Raiders face some serious questions when free agency begins. It is already assumed that they will let CB Nnamdi Asomugha, OG Robert Gallery and FS Michael Huff sign elsewhere, as those players’ expected price tags don’t match what the team is willing to offer. But what does Oakland do about a couple of its offensive playmakers, TE Zach Miller and RB Michael Bush? The way we hear it, the team will make Miller its top priority, hoping to lock up the 25-year-old Pro Bowler to a long-term deal after he led the team in receptions, yards and TD catches last season. Without a true No. 1 wide receiver, Miller will be a focal point of the Silver and Black attack again in 2011.”

    Zach Miller would be a great pickup yes. But the reports are that his chances are high that the Raiders will re-sign him. I was really crossing my figers that Owen Daniels would fall through the cracks, but no such luck. Fasano is as good as any TE, but he was used more as a blocker last year. I’m intrigued with the prospect of having him and Charles Clay together. I think Daboll will make him a versatile part of the offense similar to woodhead for the Pats. I haven’t put too much thought into trades, but Jermichael Finley would be an amazing pickup. Not sure the Packers will part with him, but they “did” draft DJ Williams this year. I personally think the biggest priorities this offseason should be to get a ballhawk free safety and secure another QB to fill Pennington’s spot. I hope it’s not a high profile guy like Kolb or Hasselbeck, but rather somebody under the radar with lots of upside like Marc Bulger or Matt Leinart.

      Ian, thanks for the reminder of DJ Williams..only will add to the ‘speculation’.
      If you have ever reviewed the majority of my articles or post on the forum, you and I are on the same page….I want a ball hawk Safety. I don’t know how many times we can afford to pass on this, but once Free Agency opens up, let’ hope we bring in DeAndre McDaniels (if healthy)…he would be an instant upgrade.

  • Jimmy Jam

    Robert Gallery would be a huge signing and I hope they get him because they still need a lot of help on the line. He is a beast of a guard and they need that more than any position on that line (assuming Pouncey pans out). Finley would be a great pick up as would Miller.

    However, the CBA is not as close as has been reported and the NFL/palyers are close to losing me for the season. Thsi has gone on long enough and they can’t even sit down for two days straight without Goodell or Smith taking a few days away from the negotiations? Not much of a sense of urgency from this fan’s perspective. Anyway, all in all it’s pretty disgusting. I love my Fins but they haven’t been much to look at since Shula and I can’t say I have much faith in the staff that’s there now. I will be a fan through thick and thin but it’s going to take a lot to go better than 8-8 this year. This staff, even with its changes, doesn’t exactly inspire much hope, sadly.
