Miami Dolphins Trade Center Ryan Cook to Dallas Cowboys

The Miami Dolphins have traded backup center Ryan Cook to the Dallas Cowboys, according to Cook's Facebook page. Cook was set to make $1 million this season.

Cook started at center last night for the Dolphins, as the team went with a nearly all reserve offensive line to start the game against the Cowboys. Cook was third on the depth chart this offseason behind sophomore starter Mike Pouncey and undrafted free agent Josh Samuda.

Cook, who is entering his seventh year in the NFL, is 6'6", 328 pounds, and played his first six years with the Minnesota Vikings. He started 40 games for Minnesota, including all 16 games in 2007. With the Dolphins last year, he appeared in seven games.

The Dolphins, according Fox Sports Southwest, will receive a seventh-round pick for Cook, who would most likely have been released before tomorrow night's 53-man roster deadline. The Dolphins are now sat 74-players ahead of the deadline.

With this trade, Miami now has 10 picks in the 2013 draft, a one, two twos, two threes, a four, a five, and two sevens. The team also has a conditional sixth round pick from the Vontae Davis trade.
