Dolphins In Trade Market For “Big-Name” Cornerback Again?

According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, there’s talk that the Dolphins could again look to the trade market to land a big-name cornerback like they did last year in a deal with the Eagles that sent Byron Maxwell to Miami.

Unfortunately, Beasley doesn’t offer any specifics regarding potential trade options for the Dolphins, but it’s certainly interesting to hear that they could be targeting another big trade.

On Thursday, the Dolphins cleared a good amount of cap space by releasing DE Mario Williams, DT Earl Mitchell and CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, so they’ve clearly positioned themselves for a big offseason.

As of now, the Dolphins have Maxwell, Xavien Howard, Bobby McCain, Tony Lippett, Chimdi Chekwa, Lafayette Pitts, and Daniel Davie under contract for next season at cornerback.

Leading up to last year’s trade deadline, the Browns reportedly had CB Joe Haden available, so he could be someone worth keeping an eye on for the Dolphins. Others have suggested Texans CB Johnathan Joseph and Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie as speculative options.

If you have any suggestions about possible cornerbacks that would make sense for the Dolphins to trade for, post them below in the comments section.

We’ll have more regarding a potential trade involving the Dolphins as the news is available.
