Miami Dolphins have a bad history with wide-receiver trades since 2004

The Miami Dolphins love to trade for and trade wide-receivers as their history has shown. Unfortunately those trades have not worked out in favor of the Miami Dolphins.

Since 2004 the Miami Dolphins have made more than enough trades involving wide-receivers and very few have worked out in their favor. In fact, in some cases those trades have been reversed within a year or two of completion.

With Jarvis Landry clearly on the trade block and a possible trade being imminent the best 2nd

round draft pick for the Dolphins in over a decade is likely going to be the next wide-receiver trade mistake that Miami makes. Like all trades it will be dependant on what Miami gets in return for the trade but if history has taught us anything, it won’t be much and likely not worth it.

Landry is dynamic but there is a lot of behind the scenes stuff that fans and the media are not privy to, even if some in the media boast that they are. Landry’s NFL record-setting four years has fans in an uproar about the future of the team without him and there is no question that the offenses best weapon will be missed but at the same time it’s hard to pay a slot possession receiver like an elite number one wide-out. That is a problem for the Dolphins, right or wrong.

Here is a look at the trades since 2004 and how Miami has fared coming out of those trades. Draft day trades to move up for a receiver are not included.
