In essence the Miami Dolphins have made a trade.  Sort of.  The Philadelphia Eagles poached B.J. Cunningham off the chopped list after he was released last year by the Dolphins.  Cunningham was a sixth round pick.  Today, the Dolphins claimed WR Marvin McNutt off waivers from Philadelphia.  McNutt was the Eagles 6th round pick a season ago.

McNutt played in four games last season for the Eagles but will still have his work cut out for him in Miami.  The Dolphins top three WR positions are filled with Brian Hartline, Mike Wallace, and Brandon Gibson.  Behind them jockeying for a roster spot are McNutt, Jeff Fuller, Armon Binns, Rishard Mathews, and a myriad of other un-drafted free agents.

While no official word has been made yet, the rumor is that Chas Alecxih was cut to make room on the roster.  Alecxih was cut last year in training camp on HBO Hard Knocks but was resigned to the practice squad.
