Report: Davone Bess on the Trade Block

This one is a little surprising. The Miami Dolphins are apparently shopping Davone Bess, and according to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times the Browns are "seriously considering" trading for him.

After the additions of Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson, Bess was moved to fourth on the depth chart. He is scheduled to make $2.5 million this year, and it wouldn't make too much sense to pay your fourth best receiver that kind of money.

I am hoping that the Dolphins are able to make the trade and get a pick (or two) in return for Bess. I like Bess, but his contract is up after this year and he isn't expected to re-sign with Miami. This way we get some draft pick in return for a receiver who we won't use all that much.

This has been a busy day for the Dolphins. Let's see if anything happens tonight or tomorrow.
