hold out and do exactly what you set out to do guys.Do not let this guy break your balls to look good to his fans because you risk looking bad to yours.Follow the path in which you laid out and stick to your guns your gut tells you he is not worth 2 of your picks and your right!The only way to look good with this trade is to get him for no loss!

I say wait until after the draft and work out some future compensation (within reason) based on production. Lets keep ALL our picks this year. The true is they are going to release him anyway and the only team he wants to play for is the Dolphins. This is a no brainer guys.

Does Peterson think he is negotiating with Speil-stedt? He's delusional.

He has 2 options:

It is a 7th rd. pick from Miami OR you pay Trent Green $7,000,000 to be a 3rd string QB.

Cue 'Jeopardy' song...

Deal or no deal?

Carl?

KC is smart, they want to build a football team, lets do the same. No need to duplicate giving away high draft choices for unproductive players like we did with Philadelphia & Minnesota. We no longer believe that we are 1 player away from a championship. Our luck to draft high in a 2 quarterback year but I'd rather wait for Culpepper & go with Lemon then continue to make idiotic moves while other positions need help as well

A 2nd and 7th for a close to 40 year old QB?!?!? Nothing has changed in Miami, THROW away the future for ANOTHER bust!

Maybe we should trade Marino's right to KC, afterall he was a pro bowl qb. Trent Green is one hit away from retirement and could sit in the booth next to Marino. Who does Peterson think he is. He should consider the tackle he got as part of the compensation. Stick to your guns Randy, we're making progress and we need the draft picks.

Man, 5 comments and I agree with them all! I hope Randy Mueller continues to hold out. Giving up draft picks is not the answer. We could draft a pretty good QB with a second round pick, then sign some free agent QB's after the draft. And odds are, culpepper will be cut. This is going to be a rebuilding year anyway for Miami, regardless of what the owner thinks.

Mueller should say good-bye to Peterson. He is being irrational and stupid. Let him keep Green and we should keep our picks. If Mueller gives Peterson anything more than the 7th round pick, he should be fired immediately.

Tell Peterson to go "F" himself,ok?
I wouldn't give away any of our draft choices,especially for a broken down old quarterback who's best days are behind him. If we can't get him free..Forgetttabout it already.

I would be completely devestated if we give any more than a 6th pick for Green. Conditional at best. Otherwise, same old same old. Screw KC. Go with what we've got. KEEP OUR PICKS!!!

Imminent? Doesn't look like it to me.

Petersons doctor needs to cut back on his meds.

Let KC sweat it out. Miami will have their QB one way or the other. We're not going to pull a Wanny by trading away high draft picks at a moment's notice(anyone remember Lamar Gordon?)

Don't give more than a 7th round pick for Green, if they want more, tell them to kiss off, start the season with Lemon, draft a QB of the future. KC can take that salary cap hit of $7 million for a second or third string QB, keep our picks and keep getting younger, lets reload our team. Defense is solid, work on the offensive side of the ball, unless of course there is a bad ass DB, or DT still left when our pick rolls around.

Green isn't the answer for a 7th or for free. The guy has Kurt Warner syndrome. He's shot, he looked totally different when he returned last year. Unsure in the pocket and very antsy. He's cooked!

A 2nd & 7th rounder for a guy that that might start next year? Green is 37 and is one big hit away from retirement, but with this team's history for throwing away picks you can't blame KC for asking, still abit absurd though.

What the hell is this Peterson thinking about? He signs Damon Huard to a lucrative extension thereby signaling the end of the Trent Green era in KC but he wants everybody else to believe Green is still worthy of a 2nd round pick.

What's more concerning is that the beat writers are reporting the Dolphins are going to sweeten the deal. If that's the case than they are just beggars to their own demise.

While i agree that trent Green may have starting skills and does have the pedigree to be a starter somewhere I really think his life as a dolphin would be short lived either medically or a future Qb from the draft taking over at mid-season. Either way we need to forget about Green and focus on what we have and what we need. We could dangle cpep and ricky to the raiders or lions and trade places with them in the draft...doesn't seem likely but the point is there are other options for us and hanging our future on a question mark at QB when we have that already seems silly....
