It seems like the Dolphin's haven't had the faith in Minor to use him as a featured tailback this season(at least by all the rampant trade rumors).

Here's another possible trade scenario that just popped up recently. Looks like the Dolphin's are interested in acquiring James Jackson from the Brown's.

Jackson isn't automatically slotted into the #1 RB role to supplant Minor if he signs, but I think he offers some serious competition for the job. I think Minor is slipping so far on draftboards because a lot of people realize that there is going to be a RBBC in Miami this season. If Jackson is picked up, is Travis Minor still the head of that commitee??

I have watched Minor and I must say that he is not MAJOR. He will do ok.

I have to add that I am totally bummed out on the MIA O. I will most likely not be adding any Dolphins to my fantasy roster this year.

Well i nabbed him in the 15th round of my local league. So hopefully he ends up being worthwhile trade bait at the very least.

15th round is a great pick for Minor, since most starting RBs are gone by then.

nice pick for a 15th round

I heard that Miami was going for a receiver from the Browns-
Northcutt in Miami looks interesting-

He was hurt last year.. he is a fairly good blocker but coming out of college he was more of an alstott type fullback, he liked to run the ball... I wouldnt be surprised to see konrad get the goalline carries in MIA this year...

Thats not good thing, is it?


If you look at Warrick Dunn's stats through the years, he is always a 1000-1500 yard guy (rushing and receiving), and he almost always gets spelled at the goal line, so he ends with 5-10 total TD's...

Expect the same from Minor... The two are clones of eachother... We always commented on that at FSU... Aside from having the same build and similar rushing styles, they both grew up in Baton Rouge, LA. They knew eachother as kids and Dunn helped to get FSU recruiters to give the guy a look... They went to the same highschool... Obviously they both started at RB at FSU, and they both wore number 28...

In fact, if you don't know the year of the tape you are watching, and you can't see the back of the uniform it is sometimes hard to tell a Warrick Dunn highlight from a Travis Minor highlight...


Anyone with questions about Minor, need only think of Dunn...
