    I understand several guys have expressed they don't like when we post daydreaming situations about improbable trades, but as we're 2 weeks away of trade deadline several trades could happen specially for teams that love to "build through the draft", but are suffering to win this season.

    That said, Packers' TE Jermichael Finley have expressed there's no chemistry with Aaron Rodgers, his passer. Also his agent contacted Rodgers to clarify a statement from Finley. So when an agent is used as PR among his teammates, there's some serious issue that haven't been handled in the best way.

    So figuring Philbin requests a trade for Finley, what kind of compensation should Dolphins surrender?

    Do you think it's a feasible trade?

    What kind of impact could he have for our offense?

    Comment please :ponder:

    Absolutely not. This guy is a "me first" guy that is already overpaid and points fingers at everyone else but himself. I'm tired of him blaming "chemistry" as the reason why he doesn't get production. He has problems catching the ball.

    I wouldn't be opposed to give up a 3rd for Jermichael Finley. =)

    he's like a less talented Vernon Davis that never matured . Dude complains every single play and throws temper tantrums when he drops easy passes acting like there was some phantom pass interference on te play

    I guess the Wannstedt years have worn off on some...forgetting how he gave away picks in an effort to get players to win now. All of which led to the 1-15 season and pure garbage on the field.

    I wonder if it ever dawns on any of you that players are available in trade because they're either A) not getting it done on the field or just flat out suck or B) have a plethora of off the field issues that normally find their way into the locker room or field. Just like the people on here praising Ireland for trading Vontae for a 2nd to Indy, it seems obvious now that Vontae wasn't getting it done on the field.

    In regards to Finley...it's clear that he's having some major issues with catching the ball. He's had a lot of drops, more than normal, so if you were frustrated with Charles Clay magnify that by 10 and then imagine we had traded a 2nd round pick or 3rd round pick to acquire Clay...would you be angry, frustrated, disappointed? I would.

    One of the most overrated players in the league. I wouldn't trade anything more than a fourth for him

    People here continue to believe this FO will build through trades and FA. This thinking goes completely against the grain of Philbin.

    And I can't agree more on Finley's issue with his hands. The guy just isn't getting it done. Watch enough Packer games, and you see it on a regular basis. Players like Bowe and Finley will be available for alot of reasons, not catching the ball will be one of those reasons.

    overrated??? i wouldn't refer to him as that. the guy is only 25 yrs old, and up until this year was steadily progressing (minus an injury plagued 2010), finishing last season with 55 catches for 767 yds, and most importantly EIGHT TDS! overrated??? give me a break... That's like saying Reggie Bush is overrated (no doubt he was at one point, but given the opportunity and correct system he proved the NFL wrong). Do away with the Charles Clay experiment, say good bye to Fasano, sign Finley and draft a TE in the early rnds of the draft. BOOM! Add a high profile WR to Hartline and Bess and we have a nice vertical passing game.

    Not worth the headaches...definitely not a guy Philbin would put up with. We can do better.

    No hands. and injured every other week. this guy was all potential and just hasn't been able to put it all together.

    I'm going with Jared Cook every day of the week if I'm targeting a tight end through FA, that kid can play, and is getting better very very quickly. I would be very surprised if the Titans don't find a way to resign him, but if not.... i'm all over it

    Ok, I've heard options supporting and refusing a trade for Jermichael.

    I understand he's not playing at his best level, but Philbin and Sherman are capable of getting the best from him, he's a WCO talent, as he knows to run his routes and can block with relative easiness.

    So I don't see any reason not to offer a 3rd rounder for him. IDK but Jeff Ireland could get him offering 4th & 6th picks.

    If I thought I could get J. Cook for a good price, I'd prefer to go that route, but I agree with the posters who said 4th. He still has a ton of upside.

    This, though, is another situation where I'll happily defer to Philbin. My stance during the M. Flynn thing was pretty simple. If Philbin thinks he's a franchise QB, we'll get him. If he doesn't, we won't. If Philbin thinks Finley has the character and ability to correct his problems, I wouldn't be surprised to see Miami make a play for him. If we don't make a play for him, it's not necessarily because he's a lost cause (again, maybe we're looking at Cook or content developing Egnew or are interested in drafting another TE), but if I were another team wanting to inquire about Finley, I'd pay attention to Miami's interest in him.

    Spend a draft pick AND 7.5 mil next year for a guy who can't catch the ball and throws his QB under the bus? No way.

    4th round pick, maybe. I am onboard for rebuilding through the draft and developing our young core.

    Nonsense. I wouldn't trade for Finley, but I also wouldn't resign Fasano.

    He's on pace to average over 70 receptions this year which would be 15 more than his best year so I don't get the whole lack of chemistry thing. Rodgers is obviously throwing the ball to him on a regular basis.

    We aren't pressed for a TE right now and we have plenty of draft picks if we wanted to pick up another. Taking up cap-space for Finley is ridiculous.

    Don't know. I'm not the one advocating that we trade for this guy so haven't been following. May want to ask the OP.

    Two things here.

    One, the Packers wouldn't let go of James Jones; what makes you think they'd let go of Finley? They'd want a second or more, I think.

    Second, he's not worth that much *to the Dolphins*. They already sunk a 3rd into the position. And they have Clay.

    Our biggest need offensively is a WR, not a TE. Even one as talented as Finley (drops and all, yeah).

    this guys a problem, the only way to take on a problem is that bargain-basement kind of deal. I'm thinking no higher than a fifth, IF you think he's something you can work with if you're Philbin. If he's a prima donna Joe already knows and will steer far clear of him. Bank on it

    Reggie Bush ?? Wes Welker ???

    I'm sure the suitors of those trades were quite happy with the results & didn't have such myopic and linear thinking as you do

    Many a super bowl champion have made such trades.. just look at the Saints roster of Vilma, Shockey, and a few other guys on that championship team for just a small sample of the many roster acquisitions of super bowl teams.

    and many good teams, not just super bowl ones.. I don't think the Falcons regret trading for John Abraham from the Jets, as just one of a plethora of examples. You know, the guy that our 1st overall pick, Jake Long, gets taken to lunch against and can't ever block

    Bush was/is injury prone and the Saints didn't see any value in him...don't come on here thinking that because he's playing well now you saw it coming. Wes Welker was just the stupidity of Cam Cameron who also cut Welker in San Diego.

    Vilma didn't fit the Jets 3-4 defense and struggled in it so they traded him. Shockey...really? Have you not heard about Shockey's locker room antics and on field complaining when he doesn't get the ball....go ahead and carry on. Since the later Shula years we've been trading away picks and signing big name free agents and it's done nothing for us...nothing. It's a lot of hype with little results and a lot of disappointment. Maybe you missed all the hype in Buffalo when they signed Mario Williams...supposedly he was going to turn that defense and that team into a playoff contender all by himself. Sure there are few examples of free agents and trades that workout for the better but there are a lot more that don't...my myopic mind remembers a certain Brandon Marshall that didn't help us do jack...dropped a lot of would be TDs, complained about not having an elite QB but didn't get us any more wins. Or maybe the two !st round draft picks for Ricky Williams better suits you...lots of yards but no playoffs...and then he quit on us to go smoke weed.

    If he's whining about the great Aaron Rodgers, we don't need him here providing any Marshall-like cognitive dissonance to TanneThRill. Discount double-check the **** him out to somewhere else thanks.

    Finley is not that good. He's not doing anything with Aaron Rodgers as his QB.

    Finley is a cancer, plus he doesn't catch the ball at all. This dude drops tons of passes. I rather go for someone else if we did a trade. Plus I don't think he would make this team dramatically different. He is far from a TE that can take over a game as Vernon or graham etc... So please move on from this thread that isn't a dream, it's a death wish.
