The Miami Dolphins traded embattled wide receiver Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears yesterday for two third round draft picks. They did so just two seasons after acquiring him from the Denver Broncos for two second round picks and a boat load of money, which seems a bit curious, at the very least.
Once the deal was announced yesterday, many Dolphins were left scratching their heads, wondering exactly which direction the team would be heading in 2012.
Then, it struck them that perhaps Miami was clearly space for the Dolphins to be in a better position to get the band from Indy back together in South Beach. Like many people, the Dolphins felt that adding Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne would be a great decision going forward. They also knew of Marshall’s issues, meaning that Manning may not want to put up with that type of behavior every time in the huddle after Marshall doesn’t get a pass thrown his way.
Trade Marshall, make Manning happy and then sign him, Wayne and Dallas Clark and even possibly Jeff Saturday.
Forget it, Miami fans. It ain’t happening.
