Didn't the Dolphins trade Chris Chambers for a 2nd round pick a few weeks into the 07 season? I don't think its out of the question that they could still trade the pick for a valuable player before Week 1.
Chris Chambers was not that valuable. SD over paid for him, because they had to have a Wr.
Agreed, but he gave them some good production for that year and the following.
Miami doesn't have to flip the 2nd rounder, but having it may allow Ireland to deal say a 3rd rounder for a guy that can come in and be an upgrade over what they have now. A 3rd round pick can net you a decent, productive guy ala Chambers 07 to come in and improve the group.
I still think Miami poaches a CB or two off waivers to fill void of secondary depth.
