    With Sitton out for the remainder of the season is there any chance Miami looks at trading for a guard? Not sure what's on the market in free agency, but it seems like there can't be much from what I'm hearing. I honestly don't know if I can stomach watching Larsen play the remainder of the year as our starting guard. Not sure what our cap situation is, but this could be an opportunity for Miami to get younger and better at the position... what's your thoughts?

    Any FO worth a damn, would be putting feelers out as we speak.

    We need cap space to pass forward to next year and we need picks to continue rebuilding the D



    And trade for who?

    Asiata will be signed from the PS and he’ll be starting after Larsen gets hurt (which he assuredly will). That’s likely what we’re looking at. Tannehill will probably be pissing blood again by Thanksgiving.

    I do not think we are in a position to do that. We could make a move, but I would be surprised if we made a trade. Trade who? I think anyone that would bring value is someone that I would not want to trade. But come to think of it, we do have 1 player I would not mind unloading - Devante Parker. We might actually be able to get decent value for him from a team that is stupid enough to do it.:up:

    Swanson would probably replace Larsen, Asiata cant start

    I’d consider trading Parker for a decent guard.

    Knowing this team I wouldn't be surprised to see Asiata in the Starting Line-Up

    That would probably be the best case scenario but knowing our luck, Amendola would probably go on IR the same week. Leaving us paper thin at our deepest position.

    How ironic would that be? But you're right, it is probably what would happen.

    Teams were trying to trade for Larson (WTF??) in the pre-season which means we are not the only team looking. That means overpaying for mediocrity at best.

    Pretty sad that we always seem to replace a down player with junk. Man, Asiata really disappointed me. I hope Leanard Williams doesn't live in our backfield on Sun

    Williams has already moved in. He’s setting up furniture right now.
