    Thats nice, except you completely forgot to mention that when the trade happened. Like I said in a few posts in this thread already, Im talking about the reactions people posted when the trade happened. You did not post your reaction to the trade when it happened, thereofore I'm not taling about you....at all. It feels like groundhog day trying to explains this simple point....

    Vontae is a FA in 2014. The 2nd rounder Miami drafts won't be a FA until 2017. That's value for a guy who isn't a starter in the team's backfield. I'm not saying Miami should make trades like this all time, but if you aren't going to resign a guy you might as well get the most you can out of him.

    I noticed no one even talked about it on here. But, after Vontae got beat in the first week by Alshon Jeffery for that TD(that was mentioned) he had ran all the way back to the wall. As he turned around and tried to start walking back, he trips and falls flat on his face. Hillarious. I think he may have tripped on the netting for the FGs or something, Im not sure because I only saw it a couple of times. Would like to see it again.

    It pretty much sums up Vontae.
    what about the time he broke up a pass, proceeded to do his celebration, strained something, then had to sit out the next play

    C. Patterson gets indefinitely suspended for "not showing up" and Buttfumble got a raise for "not showing up" - go figure how the JESTS world works?

    I thought it was a good trade, but I am a nobody so I don't blame you for forgetting.

    My main issue was (and still is) the same one I had with the Marshall trade. Another hole was made without trying to fill it. Richard Marshall is absolutely a liability at CB and there's no coincidence, in my mind at least, that our pass defense completely turned around when Nolan Carroll (who definitely surprised me Sunday but has always had near elite physical tools) took his place. The value we got for Vontae was great.

    Also, Clay Matthews would still be on the team. Just saying.
