    Dolphins take sep back, trade Marshall

    • From a football standpoint, this is a step in the wrong direction. Marshall was, by far, Miami's best receiver and arguably the team's best player last season. To trade one of your top players away is one thing. But to only get two third-round picks for Marshall is a bad move. Keep in mind, the Dolphins traded two second-round picks to acquire Marshall from Denver two years ago. The Dolphins needed to add a starting receiver this offseason, not get rid of one. Now Miami is in the market for two starting-caliber receivers and just gave away one of the most productive pass catchers in the NFL.
    • From a non-football standpoint, I'm sure Miami had its reasons. A new coaching staff is coming in, and that usually means coaches want their type of players in the locker room. Marshall was not always the easiest player to have on the roster. He can be unpredictable at times and has a strong personality. Miami rookie head coach Joe Philbin is trying to establish his program with the Dolphins and probably didn't want to have any wild cards in his locker room.
    • Marshall gets to reunite with former teammate and quarterback Jay Cutler in Chicago. He should be happy about that. This move makes the Bears a playoff contender, and the price wasn't steep. But despite immense production, this is Marshall's third team in seven years, which says something. Since 2007, Marshall ranks second in the NFL in receptions (474) and fifth in receiving yards (5,938). But teams keep trading him.
    • I'm not sure what, if anything, this means for free-agent quarterback Peyton Manning. There has been some speculation and rumors that Manning was unsure about playing with Marshall. But on the other hand, trading away a Pro Bowl receiver is an odd way of convincing Manning to come to Miami. The Dolphins are still awaiting word from Manning as free agency is officially underway.

    The Dolphins have honestly made it look like they're blowing up the team within the first 10 minutes of FA.

    Yep....This move makes zero sense on every sensible level. Instead of our team getting stronger on the first day of FA, our offense just became incredibly weaker. And...to top it off, it wasn't even a fair deal. We got absolutely robbed.

    Why don't we take a "sep" back and see how the rest of the offseason pans out before we........ahhh nevermind.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    For what it's worth I have been told by somone who does have sources inside the team. The BM trade was coming no matter what. Marshall asked Miami to be traded a while back ago and had started becoming difficult in the locker room and was threatening to not report to camp. FWIW take it as you will.

    Well, we now no longer have a WR with mental issues that require him to drop record numbers of TD passes and run out of bounds inexplicably.

    Hey, it's coach Joe's show now.

    Let's see how it works out.

    I don't think we could get more than what we got for Marshal anyway...Maybe yes, maybe no...But I'm fine with it.
    Marshall will be free to handle his "illness" elsewhere, and maybe we can get a guy that is ok with who he is.....

    ...and can manage to not be a mental patient.
