For a 5th round pick according to Schefter.
I knew we weren't going to get much. It was a fools dream thinking we could pry Patterson away.
Great that we get the cap savings but a 5th isnt anything to brag about. I guess it depends on who they land for that saved money...
I take it this means Buffalo will have to look elsewhere for a TE?
Philbin strikes again!!!
Good move. Toxic player, toxic contract. The draft is going to be interesting
I doubt this was done to keep clay. They have to be thinking about extending tannehill soon.
I'm sticking with DGB in the first, for now

Dang, I wanted Patterson.
Patterson was getting buried in the depth chart late last year, and now that they have Wallace he is nothing more than a beast return man.
....not feeling this one at all....
Can't complain really, he was going to be a June cut at minimum once we traded for Stills. Happy for Mike, think he will thrive there.
Not sure I approve of this one.
All part of a larger scheme i would imagine.
well kind of sucks it never worked out but at the same time i really like the potential this offense has and now hopefully we get clay locked up to make the offense even more explosive.
eh...better get clay now.
^^^^this. The writing was on the wall. Honestly glad we got anything for his terrible contract. I won't cry over replacing a guy who quit on the team in the home stretch.
This is most likely a cap casualty of Suh we basically traded Wallace, a 3rd, and a 7th rounder for a lesser but cheaper version of Stills and a 5th rounder. Going to assume they needed cap space to resign Tannehill. However, I still feel our wr line up is a problem.
Oh yes u can complain, this is very much a complaint worthy move.
we were about to cut him and get nothing. instead we get a 5th?
tannenbaum is on a roll!
Going to have to look to add a legitimate #1 WR for sure now. Looks like WR in round one is back in play. Any way DGB falls to round two for the Dolphins?
Yeah, he should've faked an injury or played half *** football like the other disgruntled players.
Whose still available?
Mike Wallace traded to Vikings per NFL Channel
and a 7th
we basically traded a 3rd for stills and a 5th and 7th
First bad move of the offseason, imo.
Well, besides keeping Philbin and co.
It's bittersweet because you let go of a talented athletic player for just a 5th round pick but consider this:
- Both Wallace and Ellerbe were thought to be likely cut this year, or next. Dolphins got compensation for both. That's a plus.
- They lose Wallace, but get a very acceptable replacement in the similarly skilled Kenny Stills, who is both younger and a hell of a lot cheaper.
- They purge all that money tied on the WR. Landry, Stills, Matthews and whatever new draft pick receiver they get will probably make less combined than Hartline made last year.
They also have cap space now for other moves.
So yeah, not bad or good, but bittersweet, IMHO.
Holy crap you guys. The Dolphins are like 10 times better than they were last week.
I am going to knock my wife up just so I can name my next kid Tannenbaum!
Oh wait! Vasectomy
Why did we have to give the 7th also? Wallace for a 5th should've been enough. smh
Who cares about a 7th? 99% of the time they are training camp fodder.
Ellerbe, Wallace, 3rd rounder for Stills and a 5th. I won't say it out loud but I see exactly what they're up to.
Anyone know how much cap space this clears up for this year?
So in essence we get a 6 rd pick for wallace.... In another thread many wondered where should the credit go(Tannenbaum or Hickey) for the previous moves. Well this draft pick-swap trade has Tannenbaum written all over it b/c this is exactly what he did as gm of the stinkin jest. I absolutely hate these type of trades. If you want my player give me a pick. I'm not gonna include my own picks.
Please tell me you're kidding. I beg u.
Even if the Dolphins didn't sign Suh, Mike Wallace was on the way out. It was only a matter of time. Coaches didn't like his end of the year attitude. I think the team will be better for it. He is getting top 5 WR money but wasn't even a pro bowl player for this team. WR in the 1st or 2nd round this draft. No way Landry, Stills, and Matthews can cover that position. Now time to get that big possession receiver.
Looks like we gave up a 7th rd pick in the trade and got a 5th, didn't pick up both a 5th and 7th.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Miami has shipped the wideout to Minnesota along with a seventh-round pick. The Vikings will send a fifth-round pick back to the Dolphins.
one step forward two steps backwards, it's the miami way!
Seems strange the 7th but getting anything for a guy you were going to cut anyways...
