Dolphins swing a trade with Dallas

Postby stomperrob » Sat Apr 26, 2008 2:31 am

Nothing earth shattering:

Dolphins get two players in trade
Posted on Sat, Apr. 26, 2008
Miami Herald Wire Services

The Miami Dolphins traded a fourth-round draft pick to the Dallas Cowboys for linebacker Akin Ayodele and tight end Anthony Fasano, a person familiar with the deal said Friday.

The person didn't want to be identified because the Dolphins and Cowboys hadn't confirmed the trade.

The Dolphins have repeatedly tapped the Dallas pipeline since the arrival of former Cowboys coach Bill Parcells in December to run Miami's football operations.

The draft pick is No. 100 overall Saturday. The Dolphins have eight other picks and will use the No. 1 overall choice to take tackle Jake Long, who has already signed a five-year contract worth $57.75 million, $30 million of it guaranteed.

con't...

Crap. Two of my favorite backups on Dallas. I hope it turns out to be more than just a fourth rounder for those guys. Ayodele is more than servicable and Fasano could probably start on over 50% of NFL teams. :~(

Parcells did. I did too actually Ayodele was like I said, more than servicable. He is a decent starter and an excellent backup LB. He can make plays. The longer I thought about this at work, the more pissed off I got. This really sucks bad. I can't rationalize this trade no matter how hard I try. We better find one heck of a gem with that fourth round pick.

This also means that the Cowboys will probably target both LB and TE in the draft at some point. Maybe not LB so much, but definitely TE. We only have two TE's. I really like Tony Curtis as the backup, but two deep isn't much when you run a lot of two TE sets.

I think Parcells knows Jerry Jones too well and is able to use him because of it.

This is the impression I'm getting too. It seems like Parcells is getting a "friendly discount" of sorts. That's really good value for MIA, getting two solid but unspectacular players on the cheap. MIA is filling holes pretty well, and they seem to be looking through the DAL roster as if it were a bargain bin. At least DAL got the 4th Rounder it gave up for PacMan back though. So this ended up being essentially: Fasano/Ayodele for Pacman... :-?

Asuming the Pacman trade gets final approval (it hasn't yet as far as I know) then we will actually move up 26 spots in the fourth I think.

Agreed. I can't see any benefit for the Cowboys here. Trading a 2nd and 3rd rounder for a 4th. The 2nd rounder was great as a backup and in 2 TE sets. The 3rd was solid at coming in and making plays. Fasano did just have reconstructive Shoulder surgery but should be fine and we are loaded at the LB position. Those are the only 2 reasond I can think of making this trade but we still should have gotten better then a 4th. Guys picked in the 4th sometimes don't even make the team. I look back at the 2007 4th round and not too many players drafted there played well last year. I was OK giving up the 4th for Pacman because of the potential high reward and minimal risk.

I think we just gave away 2 solid players and really got nothing in return but I guess we will see.
