Last week Dolphins guard Justin Smiley hired agent Drew Rosenhaus amid reports that he wanted to be traded or released. This week there’s word that the Dolphins will make a move on Smiley soon.
Ethan J. Skolnick of the Sun-Sentinel reports that the Dolphins are still trying to trade Smiley, but he won’t be a Dolphin for more than another two weeks.
According to the report, the Dolphins would release Smiley before the May 28 minicamp if they haven’t found a trading partner by then.
It seems unlikely that the Dolphins would find a trading partner when it’s widely known that Smiley will be available for nothing soon, so Smiley is probably going to get cut.
Skonick also reports that while Smiley has a chronic shoulder problem, it’s not serious enough to threaten his career.
