Is Ted Ginn Jr. on the trade block?

Despite the overwhelming opinion that the Dolphins need to upgrade their receivers, there are swirling rumors this evening that Ted Ginn Jr. is a player the Dolphins are taking calls about as the trade deadline looms at 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Understand that midseason trades are rare.

Understand that coach Tony Sparano was asked about any potential moves Monday and responded with a cryptic, "I love my team. I like where we’re at.”

And understand that there is not a huge market for a player such as Ginn because, frankly, he hasn't proven himself to be invaluable to anyone. But ...

Ginn does still promise improvement. Ginn does still have elite speed. And Ginn is a rarity among receivers in that he has no ego and fits in just about anywhere because he is simply good people. And then you add one more fact and you have a full blown rumor.

That fact is the Baltimore Ravens are looking for receiver and cornerback help and former Dolphins coach Cam Cameron is the offensive coordinator in Baltimore. So there you have dots begging to be connected. and ProFootballWeekly made the connection as a possibility.

One thing to remember about Cameron being in Baltimore: Ginn would come into that system knowing the Baltimore offense so he would be able to play right away.

Baltimore general manager Ozzie Newsome told The National Football Post he has spoken with several teams about possible trades but added, "I've got nothing pending right now."

I know for a fact the Dolphins like Ginn. I also know for a fact the Dolphins don't love Ginn. He's available for the right price. 

The problem is what's the right price? Forget that Miami invested a No. 1 pick on the guy. That was another regime, another time. That has no affect on this regime.

The fact is, however, this regime doesn't want to simply give any player away. So would the Dolphins trade Ginn for a fourth-round pick? Probably not. For a second-rounder? Yes.

For a third-rounder? Or a conditional third that could turn into a second? That's debatable.

Remember, none of this means Ginn will be traded. It's all a rumor at this point and there is probably no smoke to this fire.

But you never know.

In other trade news, the Panthers got defensive tackle Tank Tyler from Kansas City this evening for a fifth round pick. I would not be surprised if the Chiefs continue to be active Tuesday.

As dolphin fans we definately DO NOT want the Chargers to win.. Think about it. We aren't fighting for a playoff spot against the AFC West division winners. We are fighting for a playoff spot against wild card contenders in divisions. And considering the Chargers already have a win against us and would win a tiebreaker. Them winning DEFINATELY would not help our playoff chances.

Throw in Sahrah Palin and its a deal

Chase, exactley

The dolphins need to look in their backyard this year for a WR or even a Safety. How about Ray Ray Armstrong, or one of UM's wideouts? Man these guys look good.

PhilM probably has Chris Chambers on his fantasy team

Lol I'll throw in a giftwraped Biden in Commie RED for you!

I don't want to trade Ginn. :(

Trading Ginn would be more of a mistake than drafting him. Not quite sure of the time line, but I "think" that at the time we drafted Ginn, wasn't Culpepper our current QB? Once he was done, we never had a QB to sync up with Ginn's speed. Now we FINALLY have a QB to do so, and we want to trade him?????? Um, if anything, give him the rest of this year to catch some deep balls, and if you still want to trade him, he will be worth more.

Nont go away carlito..

I'm Back

I going to bed, big day tomorrow traveling to st. augustine for see history in person.

Go Dolphins!

Henne the Hero!

Ronnie the Rabid Beast!

Goodnight, goodbye, good luck in whatever you doing people.

Steve Smith does not want out of Carolina. Steve likes to whine when he doesn't get the ball, you get used to it.

Plus, unless the Fins trade Henne they won't get him and we know that's not happening.

Hey Awawak, the Jets suck more than they did the last time we heard from you

Advernturetom, I say the Dolphins offer the Panthers balls to the chin for Steve Smith. The Panthers suck and all their rats can go down with the ship for all i care.

Mark in Toronto cuban menace Airik carlito from golfito 54thDolphin TedGinnFTW
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!!!!!!!!

Jets, Kris Jenkins is out for the year with a torn ACL

Don't worry , carlito will still be here as somebody else.

Fazan13 , that's old news , We know. Where have you been ? MARS !

You all sound the same

ok guys the menace has some people to protect shifts from 1am to 8 am so the menace will be cruising the mean streets o Brooklyn,so say a pray for us all...

hey maybe we can trade roth for a 2nd rnd pick with washington...you know they will do it
lol....seriously i think roth could be dealt prolly for draft pick not a player and as far as parcells drafting a reciever high i doubt that but a dt in the first sure prolly targets the guy from alabama cody i think it is

They are pecking at my eyes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

protect people ? LMFAO ! The malls are closed .

NJ, big game Sunday. Phins shock the world

I know who you are……….
You cannot hide!!!!!

chase....utley

Dolphins are either going WR or S in the first.

Earl Thomas, FS, Texas
Arrelious Benn, WR, Ill

These are my two favourite players that would be around considering the Dolphins would be drafting about where they were last year.

Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas
Jermaine Grehsam, TE, Oklahoma

These two would also fit needs for the phins ad would be impact players.

Just a stupid post to start swirling talks. Look Miami wants to trade him, but cant, because everyone would then stack the line, and destroy us. Ginn will not be traded, Miami will not trade anyone, because Parcells is too greedy, and stubbern to pull the trigger on a Elite WR.

man sunday is going to be good game got a couple friends that are saint fans and i am already tired of the who dats .... i guess living in louisiana doesnt help either lol

Yabba Dabba Do!

lb,dt,s,wr....prolly in that order parcells remember he likes to shop for his grocery list if hes cooking and hes the head chef .....

@mark in toronto, Big game on sunday ? That's an understatement. LOL ! No hasn't won a game by less than 14 points . That No hasn't played a close game and with miami holding the ball and pounding it will cause NO to lose it in a close game.

nj,you need to take a ride with us to see the lunatics in this city...

Get away from me. Get away from me. Get away from me. Get away from me.
Pervert

Time to go back to Blue

Miami would love to get rolando Mclain ilb from alabama. Kindle has been somewhat of a disappointment and could go in the 2nd round . Gresham is out for the year and could be a steal in the 3rd or 4rth round,

Or is that black?

NJ, the Saints are a very complete team and that is concerning. Their pass offense gets a lot of pub but their rush offense is top 10 and their pass defence and rush defence are top 5 units entering last week. But what the heck, Phins just need to play their game and punch the Saints right in the mouth and see if they like it.

Malls close at 10 o clock.

Wouldn't surprise me to see someone pick Gresham in the 1st, he's by far the best tight end. What may make his stock drop closer to where youa re saying is the glut of good recievers coming out this year.

Kindle has not had a good year, you're right. But Scouts Inc has him rated in their top 32 and pass rushers are valuable. Someone will draft on talent alone.

I would be very happy if the Dolphins landed Benn or Earl Thomas in the first if the draft started tomorrow.

McClain will be gone as soon as Buffalo picks in my opinion.
