SOmeone else can have him then. I would take jones or Meacham over Hartline anyday.

I agree. Hartline has done about as much of nothing as he could have done. I like his hands & he makes some tough catches, but I believe the reason they are tough catches is because he has trouble getting separation.

Probably would take Meachem, but not Jones. Unless he shows he can actually catch a football & not drop 13% of his passes.

Bookmarking this one.

I'm with you Mak, he will face Blackmon and Johnson twice, Marshall, Jennings, C.Johnson, A.J. Green and Bowe, yikes!

Very true and if he ever gets over this injury, he'll easily be the best WR on the team this year. Another potential trade to Indy in about week six. Their third would go nicely with that 2nd they just sent us.

Yeah....because the Dolphins have been using draft picks so well for the last several years....... :cry:

Our most notable players recently were not draft picks.....Wake, Bess, Bush, Marshall. Our high draft picks have not been impressive, and that is being generous.

RT @JayGlazer: I'm reporting the Colts have agreed to a trade for Fins CB Vontae Davis for 2nd rd pick



Quote:
The Miami Dolphins will not receive an additional sixth-round draft choice from the Indianapolis Colts in the trade for CB Vontae Davis. Davis did not play in 65 percent of the Colts' defensive plays during the regular season which would have given the Dolphins the sixth-round pick.


Not only that, but that 2nd will be in the bottom third of the 2nd Rd.

Just rubbing more salt in the wounds of Miami fans.

Hope all Miami fans enjoy watching Davis play in the Pro Bowl today. Miami fans can take some solace from it though. We have Jamar Taylor to watch on the sidelines always being injured and failing in the field when he is not..

Josh Gordon | CLE
(January 25, 2015 3:48 PM EST)
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Josh Gordon has flunked yet another drug test and will be subject to a one-year suspension.
Details aren't yet known, but should trickle out within the next 48 hours. Gordon was suspended ten games to open the 2014 season for multiple failed drug tests. The Browns also suspended him for Week 17 following a violation of team rules. There were postseason rumors the Browns might try trading Gordon this offseason, but the latest ban effectively torpedoes his trade value. The Browns may outright release him shortly.

I'm glad that I saw this for what it was ... a step backwards. I felt the coaching staff should have gotten the talent out of VD.

Very disapointing. It was no surprise before they drafted him that Vontae Davis had some attitude issues.

Nope. One step forward ... one step back. We're just treading water around here. And with new offensive and defensive schemes to learn, this is going to be a tough season for our Fins even though they have a favorable schedule.

And to think the Dolphins could've gotten Clay Matthews. Instead they drafted a talented guy with maturity issues, then gave up on him too early.

Now he's in the Pro Bowl and the Dolphins have big needs at both CB and LB.

Only now are we truly starting to see the damage Jeff Irleand has done to this franchise.

Ireland drafted Davis. It was Philbin that wanted him traded IMO.

I still think it was more Ireland driven, Davis was not outspoken, nor was he a trouble maker, never in trouble with the law, and very respectful, his biggest crime was acting like a 23 year old.

Nothing at all major in any way, a little out of shape, and he was out late one night, these are things that are easily taken care of, it's not detrimental to the team in the least, a hiccup at worst.

He doesn't even fit the mold of the players that Philbin wanted gone, he's just young, Philbin is well aware of this type of behavior, and that is expected from a certain amount of players.

Ireland saw more draft picks, he was draft pick crazy, and was in full control of the team at the time, he did not need Philbin's approval to do anything.

I guess I just don't see how you can see it as baffling Rich, how can it possibly be baffling, that the guy who is actually in charge of hiring, firing and trading players, was behind a trade, that just doesn't make sense Rich.

I 100% disagree with you on this. Ireland was in control, but Philbin was a new coach wanting "HIS" players.

I'm not saying Ireland was on board, but I can fully see him relenting to Philbin's demands that he does not want X player on his team.

The fact Marshall was traded before even stepping onto the practice field is proof myself that Philbin was driving the player change.

I agree that Philbin wanted Marshall gone, but because that was the case, does not mean that he is calling all the personnel moves, that was actually still Irelands job, and as I stated earlier, the Dolphins weren't seeking a trade of VD, the Colts called to inquire about him.

I think the dangling of draft picks in Irelands face was the impetus for the VD trade.

It's just pure conjecture on both our parts though, and we'll probably never know the real reason.

No one said "all". Just the two that he wanted gone. Philbin is not about coaching players up to make them better.

Yes, the Colts saw HK & pounced. I fully can see Ireland going to Philbin & letting him know the Colts called & offered that pick. I am truly surprised they offered a 2nd. Miami probably would have done the deal for a 3rd.

Maybe Philbin doesn't want to coach players to be better, that sounds kind of far fetched, regardless, VD was the best CB on the team, so I don't see where this would fit your concept.

Chad Johnson and Marshall were Philbin moves, but I don't think VD was, again, it's just opinion.
