Breaking: Miami Dolphins Trade for WR Brandon Marshall

Well this is going to shift the balance of power a bit in the AFC East.

Adam Schefter is reporting this morning that the Miami Dolphins have agreed to ship a couple of draft picks – reported to be 2nd rounders this year and next – to the Denver Broncos in exchange for WR Brandon Marshall.

The Dolphins have had a tremendous void at the WR position for years now. Assuming this trade goes through – Marshall still needs to pass a physical – and Marshall doesn’t get entangled too much in the South Beach night life, the ‘Phins will have upgraded their WR corps from liability to strength.

Here is what ProFootballTalk.com had to say about the Dolphins’ trade for Brandon Marshall:

And though we’ve taken the position for weeks that the Dolphins, who will benefit tremendously from having a receiver who commands double coverage anywhere/everywhere he goes, should do this deal, Marshall’s history of arrests and behavior makes us once again wonder what it takes to be regarded by Bill Parcells as a “thug” or a “hoodlum”.

dolphins-trade-for-brandon-marshallBill Parcells may have a very liberal definition of the terms “thug” and “hoodlum” but you can bet that Dolphins QB Chad Henne is happy about it. Henne now goes from from having Alligator Arms Ginn and the tough but undersized Davone Bess to now having one of the premier wideouts in the league.

The conventional wisdom says that Tom Brady is the Michigan alum with the best WRs in the AFC East, but if Wes Welker struggles coming back from his injury and Randy Moss is not motivated or loses a step…well, the conventional wisdom may not hold true.

This deal is a slam dunk for the Dolphins if Brandon Marshall, who played his college ball at Central Florida in Orland, toes the straight and narrow. With Bill Parcells in charge and Tony Sparano there to instill discipline on the day-to-day, I’d say there’s a better than average chance of that happening.
