Five trades the Miami Dolphins could make on NFL Draft night
By Luke Allen
The Miami Dolphins acquire TE Will Dissly from the Seahawks for a 6th round pick (#197 overall)
Remember how we said the Jalen Ramsey trade left the tight end room completely barren?
The Seattle Seahawks may have too many cooks in the kitchen in their tight end room, including Will Dissly, who’s found himself behind Noah Fant on the depth chart after signing a 3-year, $24 million contract with Seattle last season.
The Seahawks, who likely just want his contract off the books with their abundance of tight ends, could very easily consider Dissly a cut candidate, but believe they could get some sort of trade value out of him. The sixth-year tight end out of the University of Washington has been very versatile for the Seahawks — and has become a fan favorite.
Considered a fantastic in-line blocker, Will Dissly, or “Uncle Will” to Seahawks fans, is often in a three-point stance in Seattle. However, he can catch the ball very well. Dissly notched 34 catches for 349 yards in 15 games last season with Seattle, even while sharing targets with Noah Fant and missing some games to injury. Dissly is a solid tight end that can do anything you ask him to, and enjoys doing it.
If the Dolphins don’t see much value in the sixth round and want to add on to their starving tight end room, this trade may just make sense for both parties. The Dolphins get their tight end depth and the Seahawks save some money and acquire an additional draft pick.
