Dolphins trade another current player

The Dolphins continue to ship current players out of town, with an eye toward stockpiling future picks.

The latest move, however, likely won’t prompt any consternation among the current veterans.  According to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post, the Dolphins have traded offensive lineman Ryan Cook to the Cowboys.

Cook made the disclosure Thursday night on his Facebook page.  Bob Sturm of FOX Sports Southwest (via Volin) reports that the Dolphins will get a seventh-round pick for Cook.

Cook was due to earn a base salary of $1 million in Miami.  He possibly would have been cut later today, when the Dolphins drop to 53 players.

The Dolphins now have 10 picks in the 2013 draft.  In addition to their seven selections, they have an extra second-round pick from the trade of cornerback Vontae Davis to the Colts, an extra third-round pick from the trade of receiver Brandon Marshall to the Bears, and now an extra seventh-round pick from the trade of Cook.

A few of the team’s older players probably wouldn’t mind seeing that pile of picks grow some more, if it happens as a result of a trade involving, you know, them.

    Hilarious and true.

    The guy was a 3rd string OL. He was beat out for the 2nd string by an UFA. I think Miami got very very lucky to get something for nothing.

    More ammunition if they try to trade for an actual WR.

    In other news, in anticipation of being traded to Seattle the often injured Tackle Jake Long has packed up his locker and placed his house on the market.

    Miami is in major re-building mode. Those pick will definitely come in handy, especially the extra 2nd and 3rd rounders. I bet they rebuild the Offensive line first, then hit the secondary. Wherever they start all these extra pick will sure help them get it done.

    Could Miami be doing something right for a change?

    you can debate Ireland and Philbin all day long, but at least they’re working to build a team of players that want to be Dolphins. rebuilding takes years and can be painful, but at least you know every head in the locker room is dedicated to the same plan….

    How could they trade someone if they weren’t a “current” player?

    “Dolphins trade another current player”


    What other kind of player can you trade? I’m pretty sure every player that is traded is a “current ” player. C’mon man!

    If that’s the same Ryan Cook that played for the Vikings at one time, then the Redskins, Eagles and Giants will like this trade — a lot.

    are the dolphins already tanking the season.rodger goodell needs to look into this developing story.

    Pick is for poaching somebody about to hit waiver wire. Cook got beat out by a rookie and was about to be cut. Good move by Ireland. He gets too much grief and is not as bad as many fans think.

    its not like they traded long or pouncey.. no big deal..

  15. mike83ri says: Aug 31, 2012 9:23 AM

    As opposed to trading a former player?

    Dolphins are on the verge of greatness.

    During the preseason:

    1. they were only one game behind the defending AFC champs Patriots,

    2. outscored the Jets and

    3. allowed less points than the Bills.
