In the first big move of the free agent period this off-season the Dolphins traded Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Marshall to the Bears in return for two 3rd round picks. While some say that this is a horrible trade for the Dolphins, and that the Bears got a steal, this trade can be looked at another way too. I’m looking at this trade as the Dolphins way of clearing space for their biggest target of the off-season, Peyton Manning. But they didn’t get rid of Marshall to make space for Manning. They cleared room for Peyton’s favorite receiver, Reggie Wayne. This is just another way that Peyton Manning is controlling this years off-season without even trying. Look for other teams in the race for Manning to load up on wide receiver talent as well as offensive line talent in attempts to sign Peyton. It’s going to be one crazy off-season that’s for sure.
