Might have been to get more ammo to give KC for Albert? Or to move up for Armstead/Watson? Just speculating. The timing could suggest that.

We were expecting it, but this is a tough one to swallow. Love Davone.

Some jokester should put up a sign up sheet in the locker room, for volunteer's, for a players leadership council.

There goes Ireland being desperate again.

Good trade. I was hoping for a 5th, but expected a 6th.

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 24s For former Dolphin WR Davone Bess, MIA and CLEV swapped draft spots in two rounds, including the 4th rd. There were no actual pick given up.

So the Dolphins moved up from pick #14 to puck #7 in the 4th round, and from pick #13 to pick #6 in the 5th round? Is that right? That's all for Bess?

Not in the 4th & 5th Rds. They basically just wanted rid of him.

Sounds like they would have cut him if they couldn't trade him.

Seems like they are de-valuing someone. Maybe they can throw in a bag of footballs and some towels?

Is this right?

That's not a lot of moving up.

Why so determined to get rid of Bess? Whats wrong with WR depth?

BenVolinPBP RT @AlbertBreer: Fins move up 7 picks in the 4th round, get a 5 and give up a 7 in the Bess deal

That sounds a bit more right to me. I wonder if that is the final word?

You would have liked more for Bess, but I guess it tells you how pitiful our wide receiving corps was.

I hate Ireland. I hate him more today. Just another example of sending a quality player packing. This time it was for what? This is assinine. I'll go on record now and say this team won't win jack with this idiot calling the shots. I'm venting here a little but he is the sole reason for a lot of gaps on this team and he creates even more every time he does crap like this.

Seriously? I can't wait until the Dolphins are fishing the FA wire in November for a slot WR or promoting some guy who drops every 3rd ball. You don't win in the NFL by sending guys like Bess to other teams. I feel like I'm watching Dave Wannstedt running the Phins all over again. We'll be treated to endless press releases of how great our new slot guy is in the spring...right up until Sept when they'll pull a disappearing act. All I can say...soooo glad I cancelled my Directv last year. Best move I've made in years.

You are overvaluing Bess. 1 Td & I recall him running backwards several times & losing an already gotten 1st down. Like Bess, but he is not nearly what you sound like you are making him out to be.

The truth is that we all like Davone Bess. He's a fan favorite. But he's just a mediocre receiver at best.

Yes....I forgot the names of all those HOF QBs throwing to him. Wes Welker sucked in Miami too. Averaged 65catches out of the slot for 5 years. Sorry...make someone beat him out before you send him packing for the equivalent of a McDonald's Happy Meal.

Word is, Philbin and Bess didn't see eye to eye on things. Similar to Long/Dansby/Bush but on a much smaller scale. Also, the coaching staff wasn't pleased that he sat the final three games when they thought he was healthy enough to play.

Philbin's message is clear. Things aren't up for debate in Miami. You challenge him, you're gone.

How many stars always see eye-to-eye with their coach? At some point you have to learn to "coach" people into your system and way of thinking. You can have a bunch of young, talentless bots running around who ask how high on the way up when you say jump...and you might lose 16 games too.

Can't say I like the deal. But what's done is done. He's a Brown and we're moving on without him. With several guys already on the roster who can play in the slot, he was no longer needed. You could kind of see the writing on the wall when we signed Gibson.

I see Gibson as an upgrade, but I think you should have been able to get a 5th for Bess.
