- Will Trent Green Ever Reach Miami?

Tell Chris your opinion.

Will the deal for Trent Green ever happen? For several months now, it seems as if the veteran quarterback has wanted a trade to the Miami Dolphins. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if there are some fans around the league that actually believe he's already on the Dolphins. In reality, if the season were to start today, Green would probably be the Kansas City Chiefs starting quarterback.

Many people believe that the Chiefs are simply going to toss Green aside, but I believe otherwise. They've held on to him for several months already, and are not accepting the Dolphins' deal for a sixth-round draft pick. It has been reported numerous times that the Chiefs are seeking a fourth-round pick, something that the Dolphins aren't in agreement with. As of this past Thursday, Green's agent stated that the Dolphins are trying to add some flexibility into their offer to the Chiefs, but that Kansas City will not respond.

Let's go through a brief rundown of how this mess started:

  • The Injury: A severe concussion knocked Green out of the team's first game of the season last year.

  • Off the Bench: Backup quarterback Damon Huard enters for Kansas City, and many expect the Chiefs to tank. Instead, Huard posts career highs across the board and performs like one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

  • Green is the Guy: Despite Huard's efforts, as a lot of coaches say, an injury can not cause someone to lose their starting role. Green is inserted back into the starting lineup near playoff time and struggles. He especially does poorly in the first round of the playoffs against the Colts, as he could hardly manage a first down all game long.

  • Keeping Huard: The Chiefs agreed to a three-year deal with Huard on February 27th, despite the fact that he could've signed elsewhere considering there was a decent market for him.

  • The Miami Rumors: Then, starting around March 6th, the rumors of Green going to the Dolphins begin. The Chiefs were reported to wait until the draft for a deal to be done.

  • Draft Day: Come draft day, the Cleveland Browns expressed some interest as well, but that ended with the drafting of rookie quarterback Brady Quinn, whom the Dolphins actually passed on. In the end though, a deal could not be reached, and Green remained with the Chiefs.

Since the draft, this is where the teams and general managers still stand today. Before we know it, the Dolphins may settle on a quarterback of their own, and all of this offseason controversy involving Green could be completely negated. Green won't take a backup job with the Chiefs, but do you think Carl Peterson can simply give him the job back? Let us know what you think.
