Miami Dolphins have a bad history with wide-receiver trades since 2004
By Brian Miller
2004 – Marty Booker
The Miami Dolphins had one of the best defensive ends in the NFL in Adawale Ogunleye. They were also about to lose him in free agency to a mega contract so they traded the highly efficient DE to the Bears for wide-receiver Marty Booker and a 3rd round draft pick.
Booker would spend four years with the Dolphins and was an adequate receiver catching 194 passes and 11 touchdowns in his stay with the Dolphins. Booker would leave Miami in 2008 and play two more seasons. Returning to the Bears for one season and finishing his career with the Falcons.
The Dolphins used the 3rd pick to draft linebacker Channing Crowder who had a better than average career in Miami until injuries began to take over his career. Crowder is still a part of the Miami community. Overall the trade worked out well for a Dolphins team who were not in a position to re-sign Ogunleye.
