Miami Dolphins Preparing To Trade For Joe Burrow
The Miami Dolphins are preparing to trade for Joe Burrow, it appears. Despite a very busy offseason thus far, Miami still has moves to make.
To date, the Dolphins have signed Byron Jones, Emmanuel Ogbah, Jordan Howard, Ereck Flowers, Kyle Van Noy and Shaq Lawson.
Now it appears the organization is switching its focus to quarterback.
According to a recent report by the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero, the Dolphins are looking to trade up for Burrow if the opportunity to presents itself.
Currently the Cincinnati Bengals own the top overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, and all signs point to them using it themselves on Burrow.
“The Dolphins want to trade up to grab Joe Burrow with the first overall selection, if possible,” Salguero reported.
“They will make that attempt.”
In his senior year of college, Burrow recorded 5,671 yards and 60 touchdowns. In the process, he led LSU to the school’s first National Championship in 13 years.
The odds of Miami selecting a quarterback, whether it’s Burrow or not, are high. Even if the team is unable to trade up, at the fifth overall slot Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, Oregon’s Justin Herbert and Utah State’s Jordan Love should still be viable options.
If any of those guys get taken with the fifth pick, they will likely sit for a year or so behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and then be thrust into the role of franchise cornerstone.
