The Dolphins have just announced the trade of cornerback Travis Daniels to Cleveland in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick.
Daniels had been running with the second team and was seemingly en route to making the team until struggling somewhat Saturday at Jacksonville. Daniels, in his fourth NFL season, fills a void for the Browns because their corners got toasted against the Giants.
Daniels is already on a flight to Cleveland. The move pretty much guarantees that Joey Thomas, who had an interception Saturday, will make the team.
It also opens the possibility that either Chris Roberson, Nathan Jones or Will Billingsley will have a spot on the team. Jones is the favorite out of that group. He was working second team today in the spot Daniels had before the trade.
This week's return of Michael Lehan from a high ankle sprain gave the Dolphins three starting-caliber corners along with Will Allen and Andre' Goodman.
One NFL source said the Browns inquired about getting Lehan ahead of Daniels but the Dolphins didn't want to do that.
