The danger of winning some truly meaningless games in December is unfolding before us. The San Diego Chargers need a quarterback. They pick AFTER the Dolphins, but they could easily trade up and move ahead of us. If they want Tua, the possibility is there. If the Dolphins value Justin Herbert more, then it’s not a big deal. Let the Chargers THINK we want Tua in order to force them to trade, and then pick Herbert anyway. Sweet!
It’s really intriguing how this will play out. The Dolphins had some good drafts lately under Chris Grier, and we need one more. Christian Wilkins has been solid, with a ton of room for growth. And the year before, we got All-Pro stud Minkah Fitzpatrick. Despite how it ending up with Minkah, our first-round picks have both been great with Grier at the helm.
In other news…Xavien Howard’s charges have been dropped. He’ll probably be suspended anyway, because Roger Goodell has always felt his own feelings are more important than what law enforcement officials tell him. The law officially state that no crime was committed, but Howard will be punished anyway. I’m thinking 4 games. It could be a lot more though.
