It was good knowing you, Justin Smiley -- um, pending a physical.
The Dolphins starting left guard of the last two seasons has been traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to a league source. The trade is contingent on Smiley passing a physical in Jacksonville.
Smiley is expected to be in Jacksonville no later than tomorrow to take the physical.
Terms of the trade are not known. Fact is, what is usually a routine measure -- the taking and passing of the physical -- is not that this time around because Smiley's shoulder issues do not guarantee he will pass the physical.
As reported here last week, Smiley had requested the Dolphins finalize his status before the start of Friday's minicamp, which is mandatory. Although compensation in the trade is not known, the Dolphins have certainly tried to fulfill the player's request.
When and if the trade becomes official, the Dolphins will likely not divulge the parameters. The deal might be for a conditional pick, depending on how much Smiley contributes.
Smiley was signed by the Dolphins in 2008 to a five-year, $25 million deal. Regardless of whether this deal passes muster or not, Smiley has played his final game for Miami.
