Miami Dolphins Trade For Dwayne Bowe?


Dwayne Bowe no longer wants to be with the Kansas City Chiefs.  This is no great secret.  In a local Miami radio interview, Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports claimed that Bowe’s desire to leave is growing desperate.  This has created a whirlwind of speculation and a Miami Dolphins’ source has come out to deny any talks between the Dolphins and the Chiefs.  This, of course, means nothing as, almost always, Miami denies trade talk until a deal is made.

The dots are easy to connect.  Bowe is from Miami and played football at Norland High School.  Chiefs’ General Manager Scott Pioli has a good relationship with Jeff Ireland.  The Dolphins could use an “alpha” receiver and Kansas City needs a quarterback.  With the rise of Pat Devlin, Matt Moore is expendable.  The underrated Moore is young (28 years old) and would be an upgrade over Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn.  A trade of Bowe for Moore and and a fourth-round pick would make sense.

There are also reasons why a trade for Bowe does not make sense.  Miami sold pro-bowler Brandon Marshall on the cheap because of his personality issues.  While Bowe does not have Marshall’s off-field record, he is regarded as a having the potential for such.  Like Bowe, Chad Johnson was a diva receiver with a relatively clean slate.  We all know what happened there.  Would Miami expose themselves to that again?

The NFL trade deadline is October 30th and the Miami Dolphins certainly have ammunition for a trade, with extra second and third-round selections.  Will Jeff Ireland improve the team with a playoff run in mind?

Anyway you look at it, we are in for exciting times in Dolphinland.

    I’ve never seen Bowe play, so I can’t comment on trading for him in particular. I can say that Miami better not trade away any high draft picks; they’re going to have a bunch of holes to fill. However, I would trade Moore and a later pick in a heartbeat for a decent player.

    Do it.

    GET IT DONE, IRELAND!!

    I concur, get it done! with bowe , Bess, and Hartline on the field, they can really only double cover one guy, so that leaves one with single coverage at all times.

    I don’t know anything about Bowe either but as long as he is not a “Me-Me-Me” player like Marshall and he’s issues with KC and not those typically associated with cry babies, then I’m OK with it. I should emphasize though, that regardlss of a players virtuosity, the last thing this team needs right now is a player who is going to cause distracions.

  • Ken in KC

    As a Chiefs fan you can have Bowe…he drops the easy passes and doesn’t have a great work ethic. Maybe a change of scenery would be good for him.

    not if he holds on to the football like he has in that picture , and not without an extension.

  • OH Chief Fan

    As a KC fan, trading Bowe for anything including a 4th rounder as the highest pick would confirm the incompetence of our GM. We can sit on Bowe and likely get a 3rd round compensatory pick when he leaves in FA. In reality, it will likely take a 3rd rounder at minimum to get Bowe. Just the reality of NFL draft pick valuation.
