    According to my source, Shanahan is not demanding a FIRST in exchange for Reuben.,,,he wants a "high-round draft pick and a middle round draft pick."
    Depending on what Denver was willing to bargain for, and what Rosenhaus wants in terms of $$$$, I would at least listen to what they want in exchange:

    This guy is a waste. Why would you even want him when our offensive line couldnt protect him even if he did come here?

    As stated in many of the other Droughns threads anyone who trades anything valuable for a RB that mysteriously becomes a star in Denver is a sucker.

    Denver has proven many times over that they can put anyone behind that Line blocking scheme and produce.

    See Mike Anderson and Olandis Gary.

    I fully trust that Saban won't make a move on Droughns because he won't be an improvement over anything we have now.

    Look, just because Droughns and Alexander and Henry have said that they would like to come to Miami doesn't mean that when the chips are being counted, they'll take less just to play here....the bottom line is money for these guys and the fact that out RB position is "open"...I am of the opinion that we should worry about RB in FA, not via trade...we have given away too many picks and had too many picks not pan out over the last 4 years or so. Lets wait and see where we are with the cap before we get too hung up over these guys...besides, they will all want to renegotiate their contracts anyway.

    I don't understand why everyone keeps saying that good running backs are a product of the system in Denver. TD, Olandis, Anderson, Droughns...hey other than Ricky, when have we had a 1,000 yard rusher here??: Delvin Williams. All 4 of the previously mentioned Denver backs are better than anything the Dolphins have now.

    Why would give up that much for a guy that was originally on our practice squad. A good line will make any rb look good. We need to improve our line.

    Didn't we go like 16, 17 years between Delvin's 1,000 yard season and Kareem's in 1996??? It hasn't been gravy at the RB position....I was just saying that you can't say all the success the Broncos RB's have had is because of their line. TD was a hall of fame back until he got hurt. I just think we should at least listen to what Denver proposes in regards to Droughns...I would not give up a first round pick for him though.

    He was a great mid-year pick up on my fantasy team, but hes just a system RB.

    And you know what we haven't had in those 17 years ? The Denver Broncos blocking scheme/system.

    It's a lot more plausible to believe that it's the Denver scheme than it is to believe that Shannahan is a RB draft guru. The OL scheme has remained constant, while the backs have not. The only one to leave and have any success is Clinton Portis, and he's only in his first year away from the Broncos.

    TD blew out his knees.
    Anderson decided to he liked weed more than football (Gee, sounds like Ricky?)
    Gary was kind of a one year wonder.
    Clinton Portis has done a nice job in Washington.

    I know Alex Gibbs made the O-Line in Denver, but even after he left the Broncos backs continued to get 1,000 yard seasons. I just think we need to
    take as much time evaluating who is best for the Dolphins at the RB position, just like we need to find the best QB for us. :lol:

    Gary gets a bad rap as being the epitome of Denver's system back. The guy shredded his knee in Game 1 of his 2nd season and then broke his leg the next year. He's never recovered from that.
