Dolphins traded 2 of their backup offensive lineman (likely 53 man roster scratches anyway) for an undisclosed 2010 draft pick. I hope McGloughan will do a similar move with one or two of our surplus wr's rather than simply cutting a quality number 4 guy...
Some additional interesting transactions were made... including releasing Brian DeLapuente and Vince Redd. I would actually like us to bring De La Puenta back in, he looked great for us last preseason, and only left because the Chiefs swiped him up before he could make our practice squad... maybe this time we can stash him on our PS since he's a local Cal boy (assuming he's still eligible)
Also Vince Redd would be an interesting look... he was on the Patriots practice squad last year and made a few starts... many zoners drooled over his highlight tape at Liberty where he looked pretty good rushing the passer from a 3-4 olb type position... perhaps it's too late, but maybe a practice squad consideration for Redd given how lacking our pass rush has been... PS competition between him and Briggs could be good...
Here is the article:
The Miami Dolphins traded offensive linemen Andy Alleman and Ikechuku Ndukwe to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday for an undisclosed 2010 draft choice.
Ndukwe started 15 games at right guard for Miami last season after an injury to Donald Thomas. Alleman played in 15 games and made four starts last season.
Earlier Monday, the Dolphins terminated the contract of receiver Ernest Wilford and waived running back Anthony Kimble, nose tackle Joe Cohen and linebackers Orion Martin and Tearrius George. Receiver Chris Williams was waived injured.
Kansas City also waived offensive lineman Brian De La Puente and linebacker Vince Redd.
