    Should Dolphins trade for Victor Cruz?

    I know that once team announce Mike Wallace as new player for Miami Dolphins, this is going to sound too expensive for a single spot, but I assume the team has a unique chance to improve.

    Victor Cruz could be available for a less expensive charge as there are two ways to make it smoother.

    1) Acquire Giants' own first round pick. Using a trade value chart, we can calculate the picks required to compensate a trade.
    As Giants own the 19th pick of the draft, a fair trade would force Dolphins to use both 2nd round picks (43rd & 56th) plus a 4th round in 2014 for such spot.
    With that in mind, NY Giants get their own 19th pick as compensation for Victor Cruz.
    Resuming the real cost of the trade for the salsa-dancing receiver is a pair of 2nd round picks in 2013 plus a 2014 4th round.

    2) Trading down from 12th spot.
    Dolphins 1st & 4th round picks are worth of exchanging Giants 1st & 2nd round picks.
    Then a trade where Giants get Dolphins' 1st & 4th round pick in exchange of Victor Cruz plus Giants' 2nd round pick is a fair swap.
    From Mexico, GO PHINS GO!!!

    Cruz is a restricted free agent and cannot be traded until he signs a contract. The Giants gave him a 1st round tender so he can be had without a trade.

    I have a sneaking feeling we're going to land him in the RFA process. Or maybe I just hope we do. We'll essentially give them our first-rounder for him, and sign him to a big contract

    So...we're going to give a 1st round, #12 overall pick for Victor Cruz and a huge contract? Gosh, this FA period can't be over fast enough!

    I don't think Cruz can be considered elite after 2 seasons.

    Why give up a millions AND a first round pick for Cruz when we can have Wallace without having to give up our top pick?
    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.

    Re: Should Dolphins trade for Victor Cruz?

    Not giving up the #12 pick for a glorified slot receiver ..cruz is a playmaker but the giants have been a well oiled machine and have plugged in some other players and still have been trucking alot...Miami is not going after cruz...I could see a team with a late rounder and cap space going after him...

    I thing that's wrong. Cruz is a RFA that means NY Giants own developing rights for him, so a team willing to own the rights to sign him must pay the tender price. In this case, whoever wants him must give up a 1st round pick.

    Normally the player must agree to some contract before the trade is officially announced, but in essence Miami could use 12th pick, acquire Giants' own pick or trade down with Giants and start negotiations with Victor Cruz.

    Developing rights? If you mean the right of first refusal should Cruz signs with another team, then yes. As a RFA, Cruz is free to negotiate with any team he wants to. This means he is not presently under contract with the Giants.
