    Default RUMOR: Big trade between Miami and Dallas?

    This only a rumor so take it for what it is worth. I do not have a lonk but do have a little backround. I played two season for the Oakland Raiders and developed some friends even though I was the 4th string Tight End. I attended the University of Maryland, and despite being a middle of the class College football team we have produced some good players in the league such as Shawn Merriman, Vernon Davis, Kris Jenkins, Randy Starks, Leon Joe, Eric Barton, Dominique Foxworth, Shaun Hill, and Madeui Williams to name a few. Word travels fast between NFL players. I cannot name my source but I guess you can catch te drift.

    I am being told that the Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys are talking about a trade which would send Bobby Carpenter, Roy Williams, and Greg Ellis to Miami in exchange for Jason Taylor and get this .. Ted Ginn Jr.

    I hope to go that this does not happen. We need WR's and losing our best one would not help us at all. I do not like to post rumorsbut thought this was very interesting. The only reason I posted this is b/c this same source told me that the Dolphins were higher on Culpepper over Brees a few years back, knew that Cam Cameron was going to be fired, and has aniled some other things.

    Time will tell..

    First Chambers, then Ted Ginn Jr?

    If that happens, I will just stop buying jerseys...

    I just got an authentic Ginn jersey myself. I hope that it doesn't happen. I thought Parcells would be high on Ginn Jr.

    I really hope this isn't true. I hated the fact that we passed on Brady Quinn, but love Ted Ginn as a player. I don't even want to imagine getting rid of one of the few bright young talents on this team.

    This would be truly horrible...
    Ginn is one of the few offensive weapons on the team right now, and I'm really excited to see him play this year. I know the defense still needs some work, but I don't like this trade at all!

    I only buy Jerseys of players who stay for a long time, maybe a decade, and with todays NFL, I might never buy another Jersey. The only ones I have are a Marino and Zach one. Im thinking of getting a Brown one, but he hasnt been on the team long enough. It would suck to have a whole bunch of jerseys of players who arent on the team.

    This trade would bow big time. We need Ginn. I could not even fathom Wilford as our one (Although I think hell be a solid #2) and Hagan as our 2 with no proven depth. IMO Taylor for Williams and Carpenter would be much better for us.

    No way we dump Ginn. Parcells Loves Terry Glenn and Ginn could easily be a more explosive Glenn. When he played last year he played well. He didn't drop balls, he was open a lot but wasn't thrown to. Ginn Stays

    Exactly. Unless this deal involves Terry Glenn I don't see it happening. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't.

    Saban was higher on Brees, but the medical staff said not to go after Brees. So they got that one wrong.

    And Glenn cannot be traded I believe because he has not passed a physical yet.

    Does Ted Gin Jr have that value? That seems a little one sided in favor of the Phins.

    Ted Ginn does have that value. He did everything a rookie WR is supposed to do. He got better every game. The numbers he put up with Miami's offense and QB situation being in hte shape that it was were impressive. He also showed a lot of potential in the kick and punt return game surrounded by a terrible special teams. IMO, he'll be good this year, and great next year. Mark my words.

    :yeahthat:

    Mike Florio would be proud of this rumor, so outlandish and little chance of actually happening. No offense to you RealDriscoll, but this rumor is bunk IMO.

    We dont have a font big enough for me to tell how I feel about this rumor. So I'll just contain my rage. If this proves to be true, I will most likely cry for 13-18 hours, maybe more. Roy is garbage. Bobby Carpenter is ok, but he's not worth giving up Ginn and JT. We better be getting some very high draft picks with this deal.

    Haha yeah. It seems the Dolphins organization always seems to screw over the fans who buy QB and WR jerseys...or Ricky Williams jerseys.

    Hey BZ

    I think he does, he has boatloads of talent that have yet to be put to use. Last year he was brought along slowly and was never properly used IMO, Miami rarely tried to utilize his speed and even if we did, we didn't have a QB with the capability of hitting him deep (Beck could, but the playcalling was extremely bland by that point). Ginn showed his talent as a returnman, I think he could be top 3 if our ST blocking improves. Last year I watched Hester routinely get 4 and 5 man escorts into the endzone while Ginn was ducking and weaving the minute he got the ball because defenders were on him like flies on ****.

    The value is there, he just needs to be used properly.


    I love you Mom, you are the greatest woman that I've ever known.

    Ok, next year we'll take Gholston off your hands. And its Ginn, not Gin.

    Ginn was a PB alternate at kick returner last season I think. Not bad considering thats what a lot of people were expecting him to be, special teams ace.

    I realize its a rumor but it makes PERFECT sense. Anyone who thinks this is totally out of the question need only look at us trading LoBook under value. Ginn is of the same mold. Hes a speed guy plain and simple.

    I hope to L. Ron Hubbard this trade doesnt go down like the rest of you, but I wouldnt say its completely bunk at all.
