Trade assets on Miami's roster

Trade-able assets on Miami’s roster:

I realize most of this would never happen, but now would be the time (with a new GM coming in and being able to mold the team how they feel it should be). So I wanted to look at guys that actually have trade value and see what the fin fans thought would be there price. I want to start this with a statement, I am not saying we should trade all (or any) of these guys, just wanted to see what we thought their “value” around the NFL would be and what we would take.

I want to list the guys I think we don’t trade for a few reasons and then get into the guys that could be traded:

Tannehill: I have him here for 2 reasons. One, I think he is our guy for the future and has at least earned the next year or two to succeed or fail. Two, I don’t think we get any more than a 1st round pick and I don’t think any rookie coming out would be as good as he is.

Hartline: As has been pointed out in another blog I did, we would have to eat around $4 million in salary if he is moved. I also don’t see him fetching more than a low 2nd round pick or average starting offensive lineman.

Wheeler: No one would want him and too much dead money.

Ellerbe: See Wheeler.

Here are the guys that would have some value and could possibly be moved (I am sure James will correct me if I miss some cap numbers).

Wake: I don’t trade him, but what could we get or would we want for IMO one of the best edge players in the game. I think he has 3-4 years left in him. If we did move him I could see him getting a true #1 WR (no Calvin Johnson or Fitzgerald, but maybe an Antonio Brown type guy). He could also get a pro-bowl Olineman I’d think. Or a 1st round pick (probably 12 or lower though).

Jordan: Again, I don’t move him. I do think we could expect a 1st round pick (top 10). Could also look at getting a young stud Olineman.

Vernon: I like him, but would trade him if price was right. Young Dlineman with great stats would fetch a low 1st rounder or above average young Olineman.

Wallace: Not sure how his contract would play out, but there was at least 1-2 other teams in the bidding for him last offseason. I like him and think (even though he is overpaid) he opens things up for us on offense. I’d take a 1st round pick for him or a trade for a bigger WR/TE that was borderline pro-bowl. Don’t think he’d fetch that though on the open market.

Pouncy: Surely we wouldn’t trade our only good Olineman. If we did would he get a 1st round pick offered? Not sure.

Gibson: Coming off an injury would kill his value. I really like him and think he will be a stud for us if he stays healthy next year. While people rave about Hartline and Tannehill’s chemistry, these two had it also before he went down. Only way I let him go is for 2nd round pick or above average LB/OL.

Charles Clay: Another guy I don’t see us even thinking about trading (imagine what the Patriots would be able to do with a guy like him), but if we did what would he get. Young H-back that really became a great player for us. I don’t think he is your typical TE (to short), but he is a great player. I would not want to let him go. Value: Might get a 2nd round pick offered or starting Olineman. Not worth it.

What is sad is that is probably our only players that have a ton of value. I did not include impending free agents or guys that have no value (Miller, Thomas, Egnew, Simms, Matthews) to others even though they may develop for us.
