    I wonder if we can swing this pick for a proven WR.

    Fox's Jay Glazer reporting Colts have sent second-round pick to Miami for CB Vontae Davis.

    Time for Nolan Carrol to step up I guess.

    Don't like this. He may have been worth only a 2nd rounder to the colts but he was worth more to us right now given our defense and the teams we face. I cannot WAIT to have nolan carrol covering wes welker

    Let's hope Luck gets injured in the first game and the Colts suck all year again.

    Hopefully it's a move made with Tannehill's future in mind.

    At least the 2013 draft will be fun with 2 2nds & 3rds. lol

    Bad move... Hopefully we get a really good player with that pick. But for this year all we did was get worse short term

    REBUILD.

    It won't be a high pick and not the value I think is needed in return. Add the poor showing from picks so far I can't give this a thumbs up.

    With what we are paying Marshall and will be S. Smith I can see why we dealt him.

    I was all for trading Vontae for a 1 or a combo of a 2 plus a player or additional high/mid pick. Just a 2? Not really a fan - we needed something more if we were not getting a starting caliber player this year. Irelend seems to be establishing a "Buy high, sell low" habit that is concerning. And his history of second round picks does not leave me confident with getting a second rounder.

    Vonte will help them and I can see Indy in the hunt for 7/8 wins..... more than Miami??? Probably.

    Marshall will move inside to play the slot, but its still terrible.

    Not only that but we play the Colts this year....we dont even have a WR that can beat Vonte. We pretty much just made a potential win much harder.

    let's recap.....we paid a #1 for Vontae...and he is a player on the improve......

    so of course...sell him for a #2.

    FIRE IRELAND NOW. This guy is an incompetent fool and has now sold off two of our best assets for less than he paid for them, while they were improving.

    If you are a real Dolphin fan, you are rooting for 1-15 so Ireland gets canned for sure. The guy flat out sucks.

    We flipped Vontae for a 2nd rounder from a team that will not be very good?

    I LOVE it.

    Vontae's friendly contract only makes this worse.

    There is no positive spin for this.

    Maybe Wilson back to playing CB also as the 4th or 5th corner?

    KLV760 Everything about this year is now a rebuilding project for the #Dolphins. Please treat it as such.


    MAJOR REBUILD . Some people were saying this months ago , and were correct . Just saying . Ireland has a lot trust and multiple lives , will he trade some picks for players now?

    BenVolinPBP And I just saw Vontae in the locker room an hour ago. He had no idea this was going down


    With the success of Ireland's second round picks how could he refuse?

    If we sent a 5th rounder or something along with Davis could we have gotten a 1st? Vontae is worth a lot more than a 1st

    What was the point? I thought Vontae was playing well. Maybe they're using that 2nd as ammo for a trade later, say for a WR? If not, I don't understand this move.

    We are not winning a single thing this year. We are a 5 win team at best with Vontae. We need talent, lots of it. A 2nd rounder from a team that will not be very good (the Colts are a 6 win team) is a good pickup for a guy that flashed but never "got it". Marshall takes his spot. We are building ammo for this rebuild. We need one thing to happen. Ryan Tannehill must pan out. If he looks like a future "franchise guy" we will have a top 5 pick in a quarterback heavy draft and that position will have been filled. We can make a team altering trade, getting a boat load of assets for the pick.
