Dolphins Trade Marshall to Bears for Third Round Draft Picks

Just moments before free agency started, the Miami Dolphins shocked everyone by sending their leading receiver of the past two seasons, Brandon Marshall, to the Chicago Bears in exchange for two third round draft picks. The exact picks haven’t been disclosed yet, but we can assume that the picks are this years and next years. Brandon Marshall had long been considered as one of the key selling points in the Miami Dolphins attempts to persuade Peyton Manning to sign with them and be their quarterback for the next few seasons. This trade can lead one to believe that the Dolphins have been told, or decided on their own, that they will not be signing Peyton Manning this offseason.

This trade leaves the Miami Dolphins with a hole to fill at the receiver position, so look for them to either look into one of the many Free Agent receivers, or to use one of their early picks on a receiver in the upcoming NFL Draft.

What better way to display your Miami Dolphins pride than by displaying Miami Dolphins Flags outside your house. Check out for more info.
