I know there are a few fellow Dolphans here. I think it's a great move, although part of me is a little disappointed that Dez Bryant now appears to be out of the picture.

I'm generally not concerned with "character issues" except to the extent that you run the risk of suspension and screwing up team chemistry. The word is, is that he's not like TO and will not bash his teammates and coaches, although he clearly has his off-the-field issues. If it were a DUI or smoking some pot, I wouldn't mind all that much from a moral standpoint, but the guy seems to have a serious history of domestic violence. It's hard to root for a wife beater, although I suspect a lot of guys in the NFL do the same thing, but just don't have incidents reported against them for whatever reason. Hopefully he'll be able to turn his personal life around.

Anyway, what do Dolphans and Phin-haters think?

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

This is another deep threat that also aids in the continued development of Ted Ginn. This forces teams to respect the passing game a little more. I think Parcells made this move because of the Holmes acquisition.

The rumor mill says that Ginn in all likelihood will be traded for a fourth or fifth round pick. My opinion is that he's been a disaster, although he did single-handedly win one game against the Jets.

Really, that would be silly. If teams double Marshall it opens the field for Ginn, who came on strong the final stages of last year once the new QB started getting comfortable.

I think they feel that Hartline can step in as a one-on-one deep threat with Bess being the slot-guy. You can be as fast as you want, but all that speed is worthless if you can't catch the ball.

I am THRILLED with this move. Welcome to Miami, Brandon! But take the Tuna's advice and stay out of the clubs.

Ted Ginn and his family will not be in Miami next year. He will be moved at the draft.

We've all heard the rumors... but why does this make sense? Marshall, Camarillo, Ginn, Hartline isn't a bad set of recievers. They'd look silly if Ginn turns into another Wes...

Lmao, trust me MB- Ginn 'aint ever gonna turn into Wes Welker. He couldn't catch a cold naked in Alaska in January. Plus, he ALWAYS avoids contact. We have our Welker- his name is Davone Bess. Ginn is beyond expendable.

Traded to San Fran for a 5th.

No word on whether his family was part of the package.

Adios Teddy. Don't let the door hit ya. Although I'm sure you'd manage to get out of the way, seeing how much you love contact.
