Brandon Marshall reunites with Cutler
Bears acquired WR Brandon Marshall from the Dolphins in exchange for two third-round draft picks.

Rookie Bears GM Phil Emery's first major move on the job was a doozy. The third-round picks will be in 2012 and 2013. The Dolphins are left with Brian Hartline, Davone Bess, and Clyde Gates as their top three wide receivers, and are hardly assured so much as a defensive or offensive starter via either of the picks. The Bears have a true No. 1 receiver for the first time since the 1960s, give or take a Willie Gault, or a Marcus Robinson. We like the fit for Marshall from a fantasy perspective. Jay Cutler showed no fear in targeting him relentlessly with the Broncos. Whether Marshall keeps his head on straight enough to make the trade worthwhile remains to be seen.

Paving the way for a Manning/Wayne/Garcon move to Miami I would think... in some sort of combination.

Unless he is planning on bringing Collie,Wayne with him why would he go there if they take away his best option.
Seems a really stupid move by Miami to me,2 3rd rounders.

Manning will bring with him Wayne and Garcon to which ever team ends up signing him.
