    Crawford went down with an ankle injury in Dallas to hit an already depleted D-Line. Phillips isn't living up to his potential but still has trade value IMHO because of that potential. Phillips is also being outplayed by a rookie who is looking good and in front of him on the depth-chart. Take advantage and salvage something for him, I would take a 3rd!

    He's not worth more than a 5th round pick, IMO. His entire value is that he was a second round pick a few years ago. He hasn't done much on the football field, and that's playing next to a future HOF.

    I'd be mildly surprised if he's still in the league a few years from now.

    Ok trade him for nothing (which is what you would get for him) and then who would be our backup? Regardless, he provides depth and will give us 10-20 snaps a game so trading him wouldnt be smart

    One of Dallas' backup guards is probably better than any of Miami's starters.

    We are actually pretty deep on the DL, and he may be gone soon anyways. Why not try to take advantage of a team in need?

    You can't ever have enough DTs. We need the depth.

    It's a 16 game season. Folks are gonna get hurt playing that position.

    We might be deep at DE but we are not close to deep at DT.

    take it easy guys. How quick do we forget? Anyone remembers Paul Soliai? It took him about 4 years but then he became a very good player for us. DT's sometimes take a while in the NFL. I don't know if he'll turn the corner at some point but I'm not giving up on him just yet.

    Ozzy rules!!

    Please explain how we are deep at Tackle? We are deep at DE, but definitely not DT (Otherwise why would he be the starter heading into the season obviously)

    If Phillips was our 5th DT then yes but since he is the 2nd or 3rd option no way. Trading a 2nd round talent for some hopeful 5th round pick is the easy way to go backwards in the draft. Ride Phillips and if when we loose hin in FA we will get at least a 5th for him. Remember it took 3 to 4 years for Paul Salio to figure it out.

    Just talked to one of my co-workers who is a Cowboys fan, he says Crawford will be fine, and the Cowboys are not going to trade with anyone, especially the Dolphins (Of course he felt he needed to take that expected swipe at the Dolphins at the end).

    Bad idea. Better to play out the season and see what Phillips does on the field. Trade him now for a low round draft pick will just hurt your DL. Why do it?

    Miami has little to no depth at DT as is. Even if Godchaux is starting ahead of Phillips this season the team is in no position to trade any talent at that position.

    I'd love some of their OL talent -- obviously C/G or T who can play G. One big fattie for another!

    we dont have enough depth at dt to have the luxury of trading a 2nd round pick that still has upside for peanuts....

    we still need more depth at the position....you don't trade phillips and make it even worse

    No one is trading for a guy now that is struggling in camp, as they would just wait to see who is released.

    I haven't heard anyone say Philips is struggling in camp. When did that come out?

    Man if you got a 5th round rookie out playing a 3rd year 2nd round draft pick......I think you can call that struggling! Just MHO.

    Everyone is saying that. Joe rose has said it every day this week. Omar was on the big O show today, and said it as well. He was gift wrapped the starting job, and he held on to it for about 3 days in camp. That isn't the sign of a guy on the rise.

    Basically. Phillips has been nothing short of a huge disappointment.

    But we need to add to the position, not subtract, especially when we ain't getting **** for him in a trade. We need to trade for a DT, not Dallas.

    Offer a 2nd for Shelton, Browns love their draft picks, they might bite.

    He hasn't. This place is just addicted to knee jerk reactions and judgement.

    I will say that Rod Marinelli would certainly get more out of the guy than Terrell Williams. Can't believe a guy like Jim Tomsula was available and we stuck with this guy.

    Lol some posters on here are being very delusional in regards to Phillips. The guy can't beat out Earl Mitchell for snaps last year, and has now fallen behind a 5th round rookie on the depth chart, and everything is fine.

    Please open your eyes.

    I'd rather see what he can do this year than trade him for chump change that will again need to be converted or developed into talent - neither is a slam dunk, but i'll take him and possible "gets it" year over a 5th rounder right now.

    You don't discard a starter for two unproven rookies who haven't even taken a pre-season game snap. While you have 7 DT's on the roster only one is a standout and without him in the lineup the DT crop looks pretty below average to me.
