Thats right do whats right for the Dolphins,so Mare get over yourself and quit bitching.If you made FG when they count instead of excuses you wouldn't be where you are at now.NOTHING for Green would also be whats best for Dolphins.Like what I see from the Fins so far as I said many times before and think the Draft will be a good one this year plus FA pick ups this summer will be better than expected.

Definately don't pay more than a seventh for Green. NO high picks for old beat up quarterbacks. As for Mare, sooner or later somebody's going to pay the price..and give the Dolphins a good draft pick. Go Dolphins!!!!

Finally a GM who's not going to buy the Brooklyn Bridge because it's there and looks shiny from a few miles away. Hopefully there'll be no more Jamar Fletchers on draft day either.

What makes u think someone is going to give a pic for a player they can have via free agency. a day is going to come this off season when the dolphins are not afforded the luxury of having Mare on the roster and every team knows it. wake up...

Maybe Mueller can con Minnesota to shift places in the draft. After all, Spielman is the GM there now. Forget Green, talk to Carr, put Fumblepepper on notice, and draft a QB for the long term.

I think it's becoming clearer and clearer each passing day that Green will become a Dolphin. I just don't understand the fascination with Green. He's 37 and aging rapidly with each hit, his skills have diminished, how the hell is this getting better?

Not if there's competition for his services. If a couple of teams really wanted him why would they risk him hitting the open market free to talk to anybody that would listen? And unlike other circumstances, he has already been paid his roster bonus. The Dolphins could carry him right up until the final cut to 53 and by that time surely some team would've made an offer. So maybe we don't get a draft pick this year, maybe we get one for next years draft.

I have a inside source that today Randy Mueller will announce that he is resigning as General Manager of the Dolphins.

Maybe they're trying to bring Green in as a veteran "elder statesman" so to speak who knows this offense well and can mentor a young, possibly rookie, QB on how to run the offense. If Green comes in and runs the offense well enough while a rookie QB stands on the sideline and learns the system....

Maybe there's a method to the perceived "madness." This also makes Culpepper more trade-able as we'd have Green, Lemon, and maybe a Drew Stanton or that QB out of Stanford if we take one of them in the 2nd or even 3rd round.

I love that “not if there is competition for his services” part. Sorry but free agency is like a poker hand, if you know what the other players in the game are going to do you could have the run of the table and play your hand. In other words, everyone knows that the dolphins eventually have to do something with Mare so they can wait it out.
Get it?

I get it but apparently you don't. If a team needs a kicker in a bad way and knows it may have competition for his services then they will offer something up. We're not talking about a 3rd round pick but a late round pick for sure.

Plus Rosenhaus has stated the Dolphins have not given him permission to seek a trade for Mare. So they aren't cutting him yet they aren't actively seeking a trade. There must be something behind that.

How about a straight up trade Olindo Mare for Trent Green. No draft picks for the old man, not even a 7th, but if we are going to lose Mare we might as well get something. I am sure KC can use a solid kicker. I don't agree with getting rid of Olindo, he had an off year, but most of his misses were 50+ yards, and those aint no gimmies! But what's done is done, so let's get something for the guy, even if it is a beat up, old QB to replace a beat up, QB!

Are you kidding me, Carr is way hotter and younger than Green! Man I'd put a baby in that QB's belly!

The fact is, Cameron/mueller don't want these guys and none of the other teams (with one exception) want them enough to spend/trade/give pics.
And that is the sad truth!

I wouldn't even give a 7th Rd pick for Green. He is DAMAGED GOODS. He has not been the same since that concussion. Besides, the dude is 37. we need to get YOUNGER

So we're "shuffling" not "rebuilding." Is that a semantics game or what?

Everybody's playing the game right now. KC's Peterson, calling Green an All-Star (in a past life) worthy of a high draft pick and saying he's not sure he ready to let him go (yeah, right). Mare and Rosenhaus, "I'll give back my $250,000 bonus for my freedom" and "Free my peeps."

It's that time of year when the NFL game masters try to squeeze blood out of a dried up turnip. Don't you love it?!

Mare wouldn't take a pay cut, so he is history, give him a crying towel and hope a trade can be work out, we have nothing to lose by keeping him to the last cut.He place himself in this position and has no body to blame except the guy in his mirrow. Bill

Don't want to get rid of Mare?!? He had an off year?!? Mare has been terrible since the day he signed his contract extention however many years ago. He made the gimmies, but any pressure situation or kicking from the dirt (which seems he's the only one who had a problem with, being that visiting kickers always made their kicks) he would choke! I also remember the game against the pats where they scored however many points against us in the last 5 minutes to knock us from the playoffs...all he had to do was kick the ball down the middle of the field, but his chokin' a$$ decides it is a good idea to kick it out of bounds to give them great field possession! Gimme a break, he sucks whenever it matters! I do agree with the straight up trade for Trent Green though, I think Cameron wants Green so he can be a mentor type to the young QB we have coming in when we draft one...even if Trent winds up being the 3rd stringer...games are won on the practice field and if Green can help groom a young kid, get him in here

Randy, Give KC Cheifs a couple of weeks let Trent Green go into KC GM Peterson and tell him I want to be traded to the Dolphins for the following reasons:
1. I am familuir with the system Coach Camron is going to run in Miami, I also have a good working realationship with Coaches Cam Cameron and Coach Shea QB Coach that was in KC for 5 years.I can also groom a young QB to take the reins when I Retire in a few years.
If Culpepper is on his way back trade for Trent Green as Back up QB still, 1 bad hit on that knee Daunte is finished for another year on IR and Rehabing the knee again.
Dolphins should cut Daunte Culpepper and get David Carr as back up to Trent Green and Trent can groom him to take the reins when he is ready for retirement in 2 or 3 years down the road.
