    We had a rare opportunity staring us in the face and we took it, smart on their part.

    It seems the 'hate' is generally from those who were locked in to 'tank' and 'Tua.' Anything that jeopardizes that must be attacked.

    It seems that most do not seem to understand that. The trade back 48-62 netted 2ndround pick in 2020,we then traded the 62nd 2019 pick for Rosen. Do people really think that the front didn't know what they were doing in the trade back? Thus ROSEN did NOT cost a 2nd round pick, he cost the interest on a 2nd round pick from 2019-2020 and a 5th round round pick.

    I suspect the math is a little too difficult for the likes of beat reporters of the dolphins. A damn nice move.....

    This move is the good version of the opposite version vis a vis the Dion Jordan move.

    Grier is putting in some major work. People throwing rocks at some late round RBs or not getting their own "guy" at a certain pick are not appreciative of Grier's savvy moves.

    Trading back and netting a 2nd next year with NO BEFORE trading with AZ was sheer evil shrewdness. He knew he had AZ by the balls and made them wait while he used their pick to get him another pick then give them the left overs.

    That gentlemen was a professional schooling another GM.

    His ability to get additional picks for 2020, getting value for RT and others we didn't want, plus his UDFA moves... Like him or not Grier is probably the savviest GM we've had in a long, long time.

    He worked the draft, got his coaches a bite at a legit Franchise prospect THIS year and got more capital for next year's draft. All while gutting, purging and cleaning up the salary cap.

    If you have to nit pick, then the man has already done something so impressive your pride won't let you give him respect he's already earned

    Anybody doubting our GM and FO after this offseason doesnt appreciate the professionals we have running this team now.

    We have a legit FO now. Bout damn time.

    Not one person is happy with all picks. That's fans and that's OK. I was impressed with the strategy.

    Good post. I didn’t want to tank. Now we don’t have to.
