Dolphins WR Booker on trading block

The Dolphins aren't done trying to dismantle their roster from last season, with a source saying today that wide receiver Marty Booker is on the trading block.

It's unknown what compensation the Dolphins are seeking for Booker, an eight-year veteran who was acquired in 2004 along with a third-round draft choice from Chicago for defensive end Adewale Ogunleye. The Dolphins have tried to accumulate draft picks by trading other veterans and have accumulated 10 selections heading into this weekend's draft.

Booker could potentially figure into the trade talks being held between the Dolphins and Kansas City for Chiefs quarterback Trent Green. Shopping Booker also may indicate the Dolphins have targeted Ohio State wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. with the draft's No. 9 overall pick.

The Dolphins already have jettisoned two of their top four leaders in receptions from last season by releasing tight end Randy McMichael and trading wideout Wes Welker to New England for second- and seventh-round picks.

Booker, who will be 31 entering the season, has caught 144 passes for 2,071 yards and 10 touchdowns in his three years with the Dolphins. Booker, though, has failed to match the output of his 2001 and 2002 seasons with the Bears when he tallied 197 catches for 2,260 yards and 14 scores.

Booker is due to make $3.1 million in base salary this season and is under contract through 2008.

What can you get for a 31 year old receiver...making 3 mil and the draft only a couple days away?

Chambers and Booker are officially known as the "drop-sey twins". Booker is worth a 4th rounder...no more.

Miami should trade down and draft Ginn for more picks on draft day and I figure Booker will be involved with the Trent Green trade.

Booker never had the drops as bad as Chambers. And I wouldnt bet on Cameron going for a receiver in the first round. How many big time receivers have the Chargers had in the past 5 years? David Boston and Keenan McCardell are the most notable ones i think. So i dont believe the Ginn speculation when you can get a good receiver in the later rounds in my opinion.
