Dolphins coach Tony Sparano stated unequivocally, "No chance that we're trading Ronnie (Brown)," thus putting to rest a rumor. But trading Brown is not the big question. The real issue is whether Brown, trying to come back from major knee surgery, will ever again be the player he was. I explore the topic in a column today that you'd find by clicking on Waiting for Ronnie.
Meantime, let me throw this one out there for conversational purposes only: Arizona receiver Anquan Boldin (pictured) wants out of the desert. The Dolphins could use a big upgrade at the position. Miami's Drew Rosenhaus represents Q. Sounds like it might be ripe for a Dolphin inquiry, no?
Cardinals say they won't trade Boldin but you know how that goes. The situation there is deteriorating; click here to read why. The question is whether Miami would spend enough to get him (maybe a first-round pick) and offer a big enough contract. Very doubtful. But still fun to consider. This ain't no Joe Horn or Terry Glenn. Boldin is 27, in his prime, and a two-time Pro Bowl-er with 413 catches for 5,458 yards in five seasons. Click here for all his stats.
What is your take on the team's RB situation and whether you expect Brown to ever be the back he was before his knee injury last year? And should the Fish inquire about Boldin?
