David Boston to the Dolphins? (08 theory mongering)

Dolphins | Frontrunners for Boston? - from www.KFFL.com
Thu, 11 Mar 2004 22:47:33 -0800

Alex Marvez, of the Sun-Sentinel, reports an NFL source has said the Miami Dolphins have become the frontrunner among three teams to land San Diego Chargers WR David Boston. Dolphins WRs coach Jerry Sullivan was Boston's position coach in Arizona in 2001 and 2002, when they were both members of the Arizona Cardinals.
Ok, I understand that Marty had problems with Boston all season. I understand that he might not want to keep Boston around. I understand why Miami would want Boston.

What I don't get is this: how can you deal David Boston and with a straight face suggest that you can take Eli Manning? If Boston gets farmed out, then it seems to me that Larry Fitzgerald or maybe Mike Williams are going to the Chargers. There aren't any free agent WR's out there for the Chargers to pick up and too many top flight WR's that seem bound to go in the 1st round. Even if the Chargers took Eli, they might end up selecting 1st overall next year without anyone to throw the ball to.

So enter the 08 theory--Let the Chargers deal Boston. Then let the Saints ride to the Chargers rescue. We offer them Brooks and Horn or Brooks and Stallworth for their 1st pick. I would prefer Horn partly because he's on the back side of his career and partly because I want to see if Stallworth will ever start 16 games. Then, We get Eli and still have our #18 pick to take a top flight WR, maybe Reggie Williams or Rashaun Woods or even Clayton as a bone to the LSU fan base.

Prior to this we get serious about signing Gold or Dhani Jones or both at OLB and then take Rod Coleman in the 2nd round. Or wait around for Washington to cut Trotter in the June 1 cuts and have the best LB corps that Haz has ever had in New Orleans.

At any rate, people will find themselves introducing us as "The bound for the NFC championship game" New Orleans Saints. :cool:

Send Brooks and Stallworth for the number 1 selection , then the Chargers can wallow in potential til the cows come home . If the Chargers do not bite on that trade , go Brooks and Howard .

Howard is going to want to out do Kearses contract , and that much money for that position is outrageous , considering the Saints have one of the weakest linebacking cores in the league . If the Saints are going to spend 62 million on a defensive player it should be a MLB that knocks stool samples out of opposing runningbacks and sends them home too mommy .

Funny that you want to get rid of Stallworth and Brooks and let SD wallow in their own \'potential\', yet you are willing to make this move all for the potential to draft a guy with lots of potential.

Dolphins | Boston Landed in Trade - from www.KFFL.com
Mon, 15 Mar 2004 19:31:35 -0800

Pending the passing of a physical, the Miami Dolphins have acquired WR David Boston from the San Diego Chargers in return for a sixth-round draft choice in the 2005 NFL Draft and a player to be named later. Boston must pass a physical for the trade to be completed.
Wow, Marty must really hate David Boston. Unless the player they\'re getting is Jason Taylor (fat chance). I do think this means the Chargers are taking Mike Williams or Larry Fitzgerald at #1 though. No way Eli goes to the Chargers.

So now we need to start working a trade with the Raiders...
