Found October 17, 2012 on Phin Nation:
The Miami Dolphins are actively pursuing a trade for Chiefs side receiver Dwayne Bowe, according to reports. 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.
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.
The Dolphina have plenty of ammunition to acquire Bowe, who’s scheduled to be a free agent at the end of the year. The Dolphims have a first round pick, two 2′s, and two 3′s. The compensation (unless it’s a 1st rounder) shouldn’t be the problem. The problem might be the fact that the Dolphins will need to sign Bowe to a contract extension for big bucks. Stephen Ross said the Dolphins would do everything in their power to get a number 1 receiver…his checkbook might end up being that power.
In 2012, Bowe has 34 catches for 432 yards and 3 TDs, while playing on a terrible Chiefs team. During this bye week, the Dolphins could make themselves better by acquiring a quality player like Bowe. Will it be enough to make a playoff push? It might, but first these rumors and reports need to turn into reality.
