Miami Dolphins rumors: Trade up talk with the Colts
By Brian Miller
The latest Miami Dolphins rumor has the team talking with the Indianapolis Colts about a potential move to the sixth spot.
According to a new Miami Dolphins rumor, which we all know at this time of year is likely garbage, the Miami Dolphins are one of two teams that are currently talking with the Indianapolis Colts about a move to the 6th spot of the draft.
Those that follow @Incarceratedbob know that from time to time his sources can be accurate. That is not to say they are 100% this time around or that the Dolphins and Colts are merrily talking possible compensation.
There was a rumor floating around last week that hinted at potential talks between the two clubs and one report had the Dolphins possibly moving up to six but not losing their pick at 11. It was summarily dismissed considering that any trade would have to start with the Dolphins 11th overall pick. Or would it?
How the Dolphins would move up to six is anyone’s guess but we can bank on it likely costing a swap of 1’s, a 2nd round pick and probably a 4th as well. In other words, it would be costly. The other issue of course is who do the Dolphins believe will be there at six?
Miami obviously can’t move up prior to the draft. They have to make sure that the player they want will be on the board, presumably a quarterback. When the Colts are on the clock, either a trade parameter has already been agreed to and the deal gets done quickly or another team jumps into the mix and the price goes up.
One thing seems to be certain here, the Colts are obviously interested in moving out of the sixth spot and adding more draft picks. The Dolphins interest in moving up? Well I suppose we will find out what they are offering if a trade is made or after the draft when the rumors fly of what is being offered and asked for. So for now, take it with a grain of salt.
And for those wondering about the featured image associated with this article, the dogs name is Rumor, lol.
