    Not sure if this was posted yet, but Jake Grove just took Satele's number. Grove is now the new #64.

    Have to remember that he is still very young and could become a great center. I thought he looked good his rookie year. I believe we gave up on him too soon, at least keep him as a back up. I heard that Jake Groves is injury prone anyways, so he could have been kept for depth.
    Apparently he wasnt worth the pick he has been traded for a 6th and swapin picks, not really worth it if you ask me. Satele was serviceable for the last 2 seasons but isnt nearly what we were looking for in a center. If he isnt what we are looking for as a starter why should we lower our standards of our depth as well. Bottom line is that we made out with a fair deal for a player that had no future with us.
    Happy about 3 points, sigh.... =(

    that explains why you would keep Satele even if he lost all his limbs in an accident

    the metaphor is even better than I thought

    I didn't brush it off. I even mentioned in my post that if you combine the 6th round pick with the swap that it was all equal to a late 4th round pick. That in my opinion is decent value.

    Man, we could have just kept Welker and we would have a pretty good WR corps right now. Thank you RandyScam!

    How could have we kept welker, Welker was gone no matter what the trade was just there to sweetin the deal so there was no hard feelings between organizations, keeping the peace so to speak, Welker was gone trade or no trade cause of NE offer.

    Keeping Welker was out of the question after they slapped the 2nd round tender on him. New England was going to get him no matter what and they forced the trade with us. They didn't want things to go ugly(they were preparing a poison pill contract for Welker) so they offered to trade instead.

    Plus, Welker admitted that he didn't really enjoy being a Dolphin and dreamed of playing for the Patriots. Even if we didn't trade him in 2007, he likely still would not be here.

    that was why it was funny, you absolutely contradicted yourself

    yes a 6th would have totally sucked but we got something much better

    you are right it was decent value

    I was disappointed the pick we received(not swapped) was a 6th round pick. The swap is nice, and it does give decent value, but you can't argue that you would not rather just have got a 4th round pick straight up for Satele.
