According to Benjamin Albright on twitter, Miami is one of the teams expressing interest in trading for Jadaveon Clowney.

If this actually happens, it checks a box of severe need for the team, and puts to final rest any "tanking" theories.

This guy was one of the top 3 highly praised athletes coming out of the draft since I have been watching football.

I don’t recall hearing much since then.

He's a good pass rusher. Can he stay healthy? Does he care? We'll see.

I honestly don’t know much about him outside of his days at SC.

IF Clowney is available in a trade, I say "no". Resist the urge to trade for him. You only make a big trade like this if he is the missing piece to get to the Super Bowl. We have way too many holes. I hope we've learned from our past lessons on overpaying to be mediocre.

Some of you on social media interrupted my awesome meal at Bern’s Steakhouse Monday evening to ask about the unsubstantiated rumor that the Dolphins are interested in Houston Texans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney in a trade.

And I reached out to a team source who did not dismiss potential interest. Because why wouldn’t most NFL teams be interested in a player of Clowney’s caliber. But the same source was not aware Clowney is currently being shopped.

Remember that when Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald’s name was floating around as possible trade-bait last offseason, I reported the Dolphins would have been interested in the player if Donald was actually available. Except he was never actually available. So this might be similar in that regard.

Clowney is not the same caliber of player as Donald but he’s obviously a pass-rusher upgrade for the Dolphins.

But here’s the problem, as outlined to me by a league source: Say the Dolphins are interested in Clowney. They’re giving up a first-round and possibly other picks to get him and then sign him to a huge deal?

Is he the final piece of the puzzle on defense for a Miami team making a run at a championship with a great franchise quarterback?

Oh, wait. No.

The Dolphins actually have no franchise quarterback.

Bingo. He's had 9 sacks each of the last two seasons and struggled with injuries prior to that. He's a very good player and only 26 years old. But can he stay healthy is the question.

Keep in mind that Miami is going to have $100 million to spend and that aren't a lot of guys on the roster who need big contracts to re-sign. They are borderline desperate for a pass rush upgrade because Charles Harris isn't living up to expectations.

The Texans just gave up a 4th rounder (that could become a 3rd) for Duke Johnson. Miami has 12 picks in the next draft already. Offer a 4th and a player the Texans may need.

Pending the demand from Houston, I'd do it in a heart beat. Still only 26 (won't be 27 until February), so there's some prime years left...this could be the glove that Flores wants to wear.

With the drama surrounding certain players that carry high cap numbers, maybe they can be dangled with a pick to convince Houston to pull the trigger.

This would almost literally to a level of tailor made similarity, be Suh 2.0. Only difference is he would come via trade.

Stills’ cap isn’t that bad. Hopefully Flores utilizes him more than Gase. He’s a gamechanger.

Flores I think legit has his head on right and an understanding of how to use the talent around him. Gase belongs with the Jets, he is a walking buttfumble
