Dolphins trade Josh McCown to Carolina

The Dolphins have traded quarterback Josh McCown for a late-round draft pick.

Two sources say the trade was consummated this afternoon after the Panthers took stock of their injury-riddled quarterback situation.

The trade seems to mean the Dolphins will go into the regular-season with three quarterbacks -- starter Chad Pennington, backup Chad Henne and third-stringer John Beck.

One source, however, tells me to refrain from including John Beck as a certainty in that group. Seems teams are also asking about Beck as a trade possibility and as Bill Parcells once told me, "Everyone on this team can be traded for the right price except Jake Long."

The Dolphins have not yet announced the trade but neither are they denying that it is happening.

On Thursday evening, McCown saw his lack of preseason playing time as a bad sign.

"Probably not playing the last three weeks is not a good a sign," McCown admitted. "I haven't been in this situation ever, but I know the writing is on the wall usually when you don't play. But for right now, I'm here and I'm excited about being here. I believe in my abilities. I know that I can play. So I'll embrace my opportunities whether it is here or somewhere else. I'll be ready to roll."

Now he'll roll for the Panthers.

Hernia Face,
I am not the aggressor. I simply posted a question about somthing looking for clarity and you, with nothing better in life to do, attacked me. No need to go back and forth calling names, like I said its childish. I know your type all too well. You like to say what you think you can do. In reality you dont have the heart to do what you say. Bottom line is you wouldnt talk that reckless in the streets so stop fronting on this website. To quote a true lyricist : " I'd rather die like a man than live like a coward." "A coward dies a thousand deaths, a soldier dies but once."
Enjoy another one of your pathetic deaths Coward!

....Penny has only played one full season in his career due to injuries. With a new offensive line, he will be tested and probably be back on IR again. The odds are against him. Henne will likely be forced to take over. Rookie qb's don't have great success their first season....still will be better than last year no matter what happens.

Ive been a dolphin fan for over 40 years. for the last 8 years our core problem has been the O-line... Not that we've had a decent Q back to protect, but we will never know for sure. #1.Pennington was a great move and will be our starter for years. #2 Henne will be our future, Beck reminded me of Pennington before he came to Miami , however, common sence tells me, we need to trade Beck and and grab Simms waver wire. As for McKnown, I know he is a family man and so am I, That dont mean either of us have what it takes to be a nfl Q back. Let him take his loosing ways to Carolina. One more thing, we finally have a smart front office, quit whining about Mcown.He sucks !!One or two people out of the bunch have any brains. I know its the end of the month, but the rest of you all need to reup on your meds

Damn Tree, impressed with your knowledge of late 80s-90s garage bands. But you left out the Circle Jerks. "Got the world up my ass and I've gotta think fast..."

Armando, could you please do us all a favor? I was wondering, since you know who is writing these posts, would you please delete and lock out the posters who are so obviously under the age of 18. They are ruining this blog. I enjoy reading and contributing but having to read through posts about peoples sexual,political and religous preferences is getting really annoying. They come in here simply to start trouble and annoy the rest of us and it is very obvious they're children. And now one of them is writing posts under many different names. It wouldn't be a problem except they never talk football and it is a waste of time to read through their garbage. This isn't about freedom of speech, it's about morons hijacking your blog and using it for their own personal sounding board.

reagan mauia has just been cut lmao

I think Beck will be traded soon, possibly to Baltimore or Dallas for sixth or seventh rounder. Miami would pick up one of the guys floating around from the cut list or bring in that one guy from Dallas with the previous drug issues from the Arena league - can't remember his name. Rudy Johnson might be a nice cheap addition to the running squad if Brown has any relapses with his knee or Ricky gets another cheap shot like he got in Pittsburgh last year.

Hi all

I apologise to everyone for my aggressive behaviour earlier, i hadnt taken my medication.

Being gay is a sensitive subject for me cause I havent yet come out of the closet and my wife and kids are unaware of my insatiable lust for other men. If only we all could all love each other on this blog. Physically I mean.

NYScott

Would you like a tissue? Whos the child really? Oh armando please help me im a little whinging girl!

Ill talk football - McCown a class act? What did he do? throw some crap balls in practice thats it. What has he done for the last 8 years? Oooo really classy guy. Who gives a crap. Moron.

I hope i didnt make you cry more

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE PEOPLE WHO THINK WE'RE CRAZY 2 THINK WE COULD WIN MORE THAN 4 GAMES THIS YEAR..WE'VE MADE SOME GOOD MOVES THIS OFFSEASON, AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE FINALLY HAVE A GOOD COACHING STAFF. DID U WATCH GAMES LAST YEAR? CAM CAMERON WAS THE WORST FOOTBALL COACH OF ALL TIME..THE GUY HAD NO CLUE. EVERY GAME HE MADE MISTAKES. HE NEEDED TO ENROLL IN FOOTBALL 101. WATCH THIS SEASON, WE'LL ACTUALLY HAVE AN IDENTITY ON OFFENSE RUNNING THE ROCK AND BEATING TEAMS DOWN..

GO FINS!

DON..SINCE YOU'VE GOT IT ALL FIGURED OUT ALREADY, NO NEED IN WATCHING ANY GAMES THIS SEASON HUH..

Rowdy Roddy, please!!!!!!!!

Not that anybody cares about your confused sexuality, but calling me a coward earlier from this anonymous blog is real brave of you! Try to act more like a man and less like the true coward you really are and your wife just might actually respect you more for it. I'll ask her when I see her again.

Back to Football - great to see such a strong draft class. Lionel Dotson is the sleeper.
