    I have heard all these rumors lately from many different sources. just wondering which you would prefer...

    1. Trading our 1st to Cleveland for Derek Anderson
    2. Trading our 1st to Cincy for 1st (9th pick) and Chad Johnson (maybe a 3rd also)
    3. Trading our 1st to Arizona for 1st (16th pick) and Larry Fritzgerald (maybe a 3rd also)

    i'd prefer taking the cincy trade because then we might still be able to land james laurinaitis osu MLB to replace zach. i hate the anderson trade but would be willing to do the arizona trade because we NEED a number 1 WR and there still is really good talent in the 16th pick. some other possible people that could be taken around 9-16 pick would be CB's mike jenkins USF, and malcom jenkins OSU. OT Sam Baker USC,Calais Campbell DE Miami, DT Sedrick Ellis USC. we have so many holes we could fill two by trading for a #1 WR and still getting a decently high pick.

    Keep in mind how hard it will be able to trade out of the #1 pick and get maximum value for it.

    I would think we would have to include something other than our first to get Chad and their first. However I'd like that trade most.

    oh man id take the Cincy pick in a heartbeat.

    get Chad Johnson to give ourselves a threat at WR, and probably open holes for our running game since more people would cover him.

    gives us #9 pick which we could still get Laurinitis or Connor, or even Sedrick Ellis. then at #32 u get another defensive star.

    I would prefer all rumors to go away, let reality happen at the hands of Parcells, and then we can discuss that after its done and not have to speculate. But thats just me.

    i thought that at first too but from what i am hearing it is a big possibility. now the thing is, is there anyone thety want bad enough at the #1 pick to do the trade remember chad wants out so they will probably lose out on him when the trade him. i think they might want glenn dorsey or mcfadden (running game sucked this year)

    i don't like wasting pics i mean we should have kept chambers if we were going to trade for vets rather than groom our own...you keep the pics and you add through free agency

    We wouldnt be wasting a pick at all if we swapped first rounders. I don't think it will happen, but I dont see that as losing a pick.

    I am not sure about any of them, but #2 suits me the best, if we get a third as well. What about the salary hit between Fitz and Chad. What would be the difference between them if we signed either?

    2. I'm a Chad Johnson fan. He would help John Beck develop tremendously, because he goes AFTER balls, and will even defense them if it's a bad throw, unlike Mr. Chambers. CJ is an elite WR and Miami sorely needs one. I say pull the trigger. I'm positive there would still be equal talent to the #1 overall at #9 considering all of Miami's needs so its a win win pretty much.

    OMG...

    "we cant afford to give up a pick for a proven good player, and risk picking a player whos gonna be a bust"...

    "we're the miami dolphins, we dont want trash talkers on our team"...


    for crying out loud people...we are 1-15. not 15-1, 1-15!! i dont think we have a RIGHT to have standards in our players. we need guys who can help us WIN. if Owens/Moss/CJ wanna come to Miami for cheap, ill welcome them with open arms....i dont care one bit if they are trash talkers. if Tank Johnson, Chris Henry, Albert Haynesworth all wanna come here....WELCOME TO MIAMI.

    (and i think the fact that Anderson is starting in Cleveland next year, goes to show that Quinn isnt doing so well.)

    id MUCH rather get a proven player, than pick someone who can easily be a bust. (like reggie bush and mett leinart).

    I agree, who needs team chemistry and good character guys that stay out of trouble?

    Lets sign guys that have openly expressed their fondness for marijuana and admitted to not playing hard because his team wasn't winning.

    Lets trade for players that were sentenced to 18 months in jail for misdemeanor gun charges.

    Lets bring in players that step on other players faces when they're laying on the ground.

    Lets welcome a guy that has had several runins with the law including, but limited to, drug charges that resulted in a suspension, a sex crime in a Covington Kentucky hotel room, DWI, providing alcohol to minors, was suspended by the NFL for violating personal conduct rules and to top it off....for assaulting a 16 year old boy. Welcome to Miami Chris Henry!!!

    :rolleyes:

    I wouldn't mind bringing in Najeh Davenport, maybe he can take a dump in Tom Brady's locker. I'm all for whatever gives Miami the edge......

    I just want players who will be here and improve the team. All through history players have been rebels and unruly subjects. Joe Namath, Michael Irvin and Lawrence Taylor have all been in the news for the wrong reasons in the past, but are also still known as great players. As long as they behave through the season, and produce who cares.

    I like Fitzgerald. Younger, faster, more flexible in coverage, less likely to cost the team 15 yards after every TD...

    I can guarantee you that last rumor is bogus.. If there's any legs to it, that deal is the biggest no brainer I've ever seen, and I'd take that in the bat of an eye, without hesitating twice.

    Fitzgerald is a Top 10 WR who hasn't even come close to what he's capable of (which is frightening to think of, because he's already pretty darn good as is). To get him and the 16th pick, where they can upgrade their defense with the 16th (Mike Jenkins?) and 32nd picks? Or get a LT at 32 (Michael Oher maybe?)..... Once Fitzgerald re-signs, that cap figure will be nowhere near what it is on paper now.

    If this has been offered, I'd do it before Rod Graves has a chance to change his mind.

    None of them, I'd prefer a rumor about us getting an upgrade on the O line or the D line, not some sexy trade for a WR or QB, that's where our biggest needs are, JMO.:confused2:

    Are you suggesting we don't need WR help? Our best WR is Marty friggin Booker. If this rumor has anything to it we could get a real #1 WR for the price of dropping back 8 positions in the 1st round where there will still be plenty of talent to be had.

    WR's can be had later in the draft or via Free Agency, or through trades later on. Right now we need big bodies to block and stuff the run. It's hard to score when your D can't get off the field.

    The talent gap between #1 overall and #9 overall is extremely small if you make a smart choice. Especially when you get the premier WR out of it also.

    No trading picks for players, any players. Draft, draft, draft, did I say draft. Oh ya like I said before draft. We have way to many needs.

    Agreed. Fitz>>>>>CJ, and he would be a better fit (big fast WR to complement speedy Ginn). But no way in hell that rumor is legit. With Bryant Johnson a FA they will work to keep Boldin and Fitz locked up for a long time, like the Colts with Harrison/Wayne. They would be fools to do anything else.

    Rather have the 2nd or 3rd one. Anderson is not worth any draft pick in my opinion unless he comes packaged with Joe Thomas, Braylon Edwards, and Kellen Winslow. I like the 2nd option more because we stay in the top 10 where we can get a defensive player worth his pick as well as pick up a quality WR (though I like Fitzgerald more than CJ because of his size and age).

    Peter King's 3rd round pick for Chad Johnson would be the best trade in franchise history.

    I don't like any of those trades either. We have a loooong way to go. We need a lot of younger players, one or two ain't going to take us to the promised land...

    exactly what are you smoking that we would trade our 1st straight up for a QB that has only played well 1 season. Where did this rumor come from, cause its riding the rumor shortbus. we dont trade that #1 away for anything less thean 2 #1s ill take 1 this year and another next year if we have to but for a QB that has yet to prove anything, EFF NO
