The Miami Dolphins are actively pursuing a trade for Chiefs side receiver Dwayne Bowe, according to reports. We will caution you that the reports spoken about in Sports Illustrated link are unconfirmed. Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports is referenced in the story and said tonight he’s personally not reporting trade talks are ongoing. BUT, Cole said it would make a lot of sense since Bowe wants out of Kansas City badly. Other reports are saying that trade talks are happening, but the Dolphins aren’t going to confirm if something is in the works, right?
The Dolphins receiving corps has been thin since the Dolphins traded away Brandon Marshall for two 3rd round picks back in March. The Dolphins have relied mainly on Davone Bess and Brian Hartline this season, but neither appears to be a true #1 receiver. Hartline has had 1 good game and 1 career day. However, he has been mostly shut down the last 2 games. I like Brian, but I just don’t think he’s a number one receiver. He’s a good #2 or #3. I hope I’m wrong, but I just don’t know if he is physically dominant enough to be considered a #1 receiver.
The Dolphins find themselves tied for first place (and last place) in the AFC East with the other 3 teams at 3-3. Maybe the Dolphins want to make a run at this thing….Maybe they realize it would be a good idea to get Ryan Tannehill a legit #1 receiver. Acquiring someone like Bowe would allow the Dolphins to use 3 wide receiver sets that feature Bowe and Hartline on the outside and Davone Bess lined up in the slot, where he’s at his best.
