Miami Dolphins and Green Bay Packers
Miami send 2nd and conditional 6th round pick to Green Bay Packer
Green Bay sends JerMichael Finely
Miami has been ignoring the tight end position since….Keith Jackson left. We once had a glimmer of hope with Randy McMichael, but he was cut from our team. Let’s be real for a second, the only way to expose 3-4 D is with a hybrid TE. One of previous stories explains why, so if you want check it out.
Back to the trade, Finely will be a UFA next season, and Green Bay won the Super Bowl without him, which makes him expendable. Green Bay is never one to open up their wallets on situational player, and a player they know that they can win without. Therefore, might as well trade him and receive a development player in return.
Miami gets arguably one of the best TE’s in the game. Yes the Dolphins signed Fasano to a contract extension but we can easily cut ties with him at the start of next season. Charles Clay was drafted in the 6th round of this year draft, you can’t ask for a better mentor.
The 6th round pick is conditional based on the Dolphins signing Finely to a contract. If we honestly want to win our division, where all team implement a 3-4 D, we need the best asset we can find, and that is Finely.
Make the trade with no regrets.
First of all I think Washington has learned their lesson about trading draft picks away for another Philly QB…Mike S is not that stupid. So I can’t see them making another intra division trade.
Now Seattle sent a 2nd round for Charlie W, but that didn’t plan out, but you never know. Maybe Carol is looking for healthy competition so, go out and get the best QB available.
Philly somehow does this every year, almost as good as the Patriots, but get another set of draft picks to play around with next year and develop from within.
Seattle needs a QB, they will release Matt, and need to get younger and excite the fans once again. Arizona is also in the picture, but won’t give up a 1st and 3rd round pick….management is smart, and rumours are floating that Fitz is pushing for McNabb.
This a straight up trade…Drama for drama. Washington needs a bootleg QB and I think Mike S can work with Vince Young, and at the same time he gets rid of his biggest headache. Signing Big Aly was a mistake, and maybe returning to his only team that he saw success might allow some sort of relief. Booth players will have to restructure their contracts to make this happen, but sometimes getting rid of one headache for another makes sense.
