    excellent if true. I like Smiley, I thought he played well for us, and had the right attitude to help the team. However, he was too much of an injury concern.

    Could you imagine if we get Reggie Nelson in return, who was on the block. I doubt it, Fins value their picks.

    He will pass. Dolphins wouldn't make the deal if he couldn't.

    I don't think Reggie Nelson ever would have even entered the discussion. This was always going to be for a low round pick, most likely conditional.

    Don't try and beat FinAtic to the Dolphin News punch. He's been like DNN (Dolphin News Network) lately!

    Passing a physical is no guarantee. I think it is a legitimate concern that this trade may not finalize. I think it is probably 60/40 in favor of the trading going through. As far as compensation it is probably nothing more than a 7th round pick in 2011. At this point though, I am glad just to get anything back.

    Sort of a bitter sweet moment as I liked Justin Smiley but realize his injury concerns outweigh his talent. If he actually stays healthy for once, the Jags will get a steal.

    I still believe the shoulder stuff was overblown. There was a rumor I believe that was out there that said his shoulder was shot and he can't play. I don't tend to think the Dolphins would go through with all of this if they concluded the same thing. They'd just waive him and say sorry we love ya but your career is over.

    I know i'll be disappointed with what we get. Probably just a 5th or 6th but he IS a starting caliber O-lineman

    I don't know about that. I'm no expert but If I recall I read that Colts had offered a 5th for Smiley around draft time and the Dolphins turned it down hoping to get a 4th. I think it's prob going to be for a 5th or maybe a 6th now but could be a 4th or 5th depending on playing time. Just a thought.

    Clearing some cap for Atogwe? I like this move a lot, saves some money and it doesnt hurt us much getting rid of the old injury proned (though good) guard, while we have Icognito, Gardner, Thomas, and Jon Jerry. I dont see a reason to not go after OJ and if we do, watch out, we are a top team and extremely young.

    This is IMO clearing some salary room for Brandon Marshall and Karlos Dansby. Smiley has known for a while now that he's played his last game as a Dolphin. They told him months ago to stay away from all the voluntary camps and activities, even the lifting and whatnot at the facility. The likelihood of this having anything to do with Atogwe is small, I think it's much greater that this was a move they already penciled in before they signed Karlos Dansby and Brandon Marshall, and the only reason they weren't forced to do it sooner is there is no hard salary cap this year. But in order to fit Marshall and Dansby within their own internally set guidelines for salary, I believe this had to get done.

    Wow, nice move by the front office. I figured anybody who wanted him would just wait til he was cut. Guess the Jags wanted him enough to give away "something" to ensure he was theirs. Either way, good for us!!!

    Jason Ferguson was not talking out of his *** when he said, this organization cleans house when they do not get the results they want. Fins cut or traded, Porter, Ayodele, Wilson, Nate Jones, Taylor, Ginn and Smiley. The new additions are Dansby, Marshall, Incognito & possibly Procter.

    Fins are not done getting rid of players either, I predict Turner, Torbor, Moses, Walden and Dotson could all be gone. I also do not see the Dolphins keeping four QBs. Talk about a roster overhaul.

    I agree. Jake Grove could be next. You're production most match you're pay. I don't think we make a play for Atogwe. I think the roster is set and that people like Reggie Torbor, Jake Grove, and other players with big contracts and limited roles better be on watch.
