The Miami Dolphins may not have to make decisions on these players that some believed at one point were potentially on the block.

Lynn Bowden, Jr. has been talked about a lot but it seems as though trade discussions have quieted down for the Miami Dolphins.

Over the last month, Lynn Bowden, Jr. has had his name mentioned quite a bit in trade speculation but that has all quieted down over the last week or so. Bowden, is maybe the team’s top option in the return game, and that versatility could be the reason the Dolphins have changed their minds, of course, we don’t really know if Bowden was ever actually on the trade block.

While Bowden, Jr. talk has quieted down, there are some who believe Miami could be quietly exploring options to trade Teddy Bridgewater. It would be stupid for the team to do so as Skylar Thompson has no experience at the NFL level outside of two preseason games and while his two games have excited the fans, he isn’t ready for the backup roll yet.

Bridgewater’s guaranteed salary, his experience, and the fact that if Tua should be injured the Dolphins would have a player that can keep the machine operating makes a trade not ideal.

That means Bridgewater, despite being enticing, will not be traded, just like Bowden.
