    I'm not saying I wouldn't trade either one of those players. My comment was more about the imagined strength of our current WR corps.

    I don't understand this thought process. If Rosen can't survive behind this line, how will Tua?

    I would imagine when the OL is an unmitigated disaster, we won’t go into 2020 with the same players.

    Tua would get hurt behind this OL. I don't want to see that happen.

    He was banged up to much last year to be put behind a terrible OL. Gotta shore it up of he's the target.

    We do not need to make a trade this year, we have 12 picks and a lot of cap space in 2020. Build the line next offseason

    I'd trade Stills for an above average OL member.

    If the Dolphins OL gets beaten regularly during the TB joint practices and game this week, it will be interesting to see if Miami makes any moves.

    It wouldn't be surprising if Stills is on the trading block with a trade pending the outcome other competitive positional battles around the league. Kenny's skills probably makes him a fit for lots of teams and his well-established routes should make it easy for most QBs to work him into their offense. On the other hand, the positions that Dolphins may seek may require the 3rd preseason game to resolve such competition.

    Looking back, the emergence of Preston Williams likely changed their plans for the WR corps. The signing of Allen Hurns could indicate that the team wants a competitive battle with Isaiah Ford & Trent Irwin for a 3rd WR role, where they likely desire a more move-the-chains possession slot receiver. Meanwhile, DeVante Parker is already benefiting as he no longer covered by Xavier Howard (i.e., the best corner) on all critical plays and will likely face more 'winnable' coverage during the season.

    Williams leap-frogging the depth chart makes Stills expendable. The offense is doesn't require more than 3 WR sets and will frequently use less than three. Wilson, Grant, and O'Leary have lined up in the backfield, which allows the team to still run the routes to spread a defense, while making the it think about the potential for run/pass, containment, and trick play.

    I have no idea what Stills may bring in a trade, but the team missed the window where veterans with high contracts were traded, such as Kelechi Osemele.

    You realize other teams have to agree to the trade, right?

    Why would we trade a receiver for anything right now? This staff is still evaluating players and implementing a new scheme. We have talent in the receiving core and yet folks are screaming we have no talent... so trade the talent we have for a player that will have to make the squad? What if he doesn't? It happens. We have until the trade deadline to know where we stand as a team. We should wait until the move would make more sense IMO. The only trade I would consider is if a player is going to be cut because of a crowded position.
