I think the Brandon Marshall trade is a great deal for the Miami Dolphins on several different levels.
First, the Dolphins keep their first-round pick this year, which I think is critical for them. They give up a second-round pick this year and a second-round pick next year for a player that has had three consecutive 100-plus reception seasons. You’re getting a young player who is big, physical and has proven production.
Really, as everyone knows, the only issue with Marshall is keeping him interested in football only. With Bill Parcells, Jeff Ireland and Tony Sparano, the Dolphins have an opportunity to do that.
For the Dolphins, I absolutely love this trade. Offensively, they needed playmakers, and Marshall changes the whole game plan.
