This has to be one of the absolute worst rumors I've seen yet. Seriously, if this was to ever happen, I might have to boycott being a Dolphins fan. The rumor comes to us from East Coast Sports News:
Let me get this straight. Under this scenario, the Dolphins would end up with Derek Anderson, only 1 first round pick (and it would be in the 20s) and they'd also lose their 3rd rounder. Hmmmm.....NOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Again, let me just take the time to say that Derek Anderson really isn't that good. If he was, the Browns wouldn't be so quick to part with him. We also have talked a lot this offseason about how Anderson had a good season because he had terrific protection from his line and has some great skill players around him. And we've even pointed out here that he actually had a higher percentage of poor throws than both John Beck and Cleo Lemon.
So why in the world should the Dolphins make a move like this for him?
Ugh. If they ever did this kind of trade, let's just say my allegiance to the Dolphins would be in doubt (well, at least for a few days).
Of course, this could be just another example of a Bill Parcells/Jeff Irelans smoke screen, getting teams to believe that the Dolphins are indeed looking for a QB.
We shall see...
