Dolphins have potential interest in Kansas City QB Green

INDIANAPOLIS -- As the Dolphins prepare to part ways with Joey Harrington, another veteran quarterback may be emerging on the team's radar.

The Dolphins would have interest in acquiring Kansas City's Trent Green if placed on the trading block by the Chiefs, a source said at the NFL Scouting Combine.

As of Tuesday, there were no indications Green is currently being dangled as trade bait by Kansas City. But should the Chiefs decide to head in a different direction at quarterback, the source said the Dolphins would entertain the possibility of trying to swing a deal.

The odds of such a scenario unfolding increased Tuesday with Kansas City re-signing quarterback Damon Huard to a three-year contract that FOX Sports reported is worth $7.5 million.

A Dolphins backup from 1997 to 2000, Huard posted a 5-3 record as a starter in 2006 while Green was sidelined with a serious concussion suffered in the season-opener against Cincinnati. When he returned to the starting lineup, Green struggled while playing in a new offense under first-year head coach Herman Edwards.

Although he became one of the AFC's top quarterbacks after his arrival in Kansas City in 2001, two other factors that may prompt the Chiefs to consider moving Green are his age - the 13-year veteran turns 37 in July -- and contract. The Kansas City Star reported Tuesday that the Chiefs are expected to ask Green to take a pay cut from his current 2007 base salary of $7.2 million.

Green would be an intriguing fit for the Dolphins, which enter the offseason with uncertainty at the quarterback position. Green played under new Dolphins coach Cam Cameron when both were with Washington from 1995 to 1998 and is familiar with the new offensive system that the latter is installing. New Dolphins quarterbacks coach Terry Shea also held that same position with the Chiefs while working with Green for four of the past five seasons.

As for Harrington, a source said he will be released later this week unless the Dolphins can trade him. That would leave Daunte Culpepper and Cleo Lemon as the team's top quarterbacks.

Man, it's really going to hurt seeing Trent in a different uniform.Agreed. He's been a good soldier... done everything that was asked of him. If there's an NFL player you can respect, he's the one.

I'll hate to see him go, but it seems likely.

Can't agree with you more. If we could get ANYTHING in return for Green, do it. And this is coming from somebody that as of last week wanted green to start. But the resigning of Huard changes everything.

Argh. Pains me to say it.

Green is a class guy. He's never pointed fingers at other people and always owned up to his mistakes when he made them. He's not even afraid to throw a block when the team needs one. And on top of that he's been a great QB.

The NFL needs more people like him.

I agree. We need 2 seasons at 7-9, or ever worse and start developing some younger talent.

While the front office will never do it, I would trade the farm and get rid of some high dollar older guys while signing some younger up and comers dirt cheap for long terms. We take our loses for 2 years while they develop and then bring in the high dollar stop gap free agents in 2009 to make a real push for the title.

However, this town threw a temper tantrum when we released Joe Valerio, I don't see how the Admin at Arrowhead would survive a LJ, Green, Gonzalez, etc, dump.

Yup. After the discipline-less last years of the Schottenheimer team, it was nice to have a team that seemed intent on working together. I am done with nice, I want to win.

Thanks for your years here, Mr. Green. The fans and you benefitted greatly from your time on the field. However, I don't see my team progressing with you at the helm. Good luck in your future endeavors.

I agree. Never gonna happen though. I don't know what the Dolphins are thinking even considering any trade. I don't know why anybody would want to trade for Trent Green at all right now. Not even for a 6th rounder. He's 37. He needs perfect protection. He got his brain mashed in last year. He looked like dog shit at the end of the season. Even if he still can play to the rate he was, he's gonna be 37. Damon Huard is 33. He has 3-4 years left.

I feel bad for Daunte Culpepper, he's had an injury ridden last couple of years. His last full season he was unstoppable. The guy has gas in his tank, and is still one of the top 5 QB's in the league when he's healthy. I certainly look for a reemergence next year if he gets a chance to be #1.

In the last two years he's played a combined total of 10 games, and that was mostly playing through injury and in a new system. In 2004 he threw for 4750 yards 39 TD's 11 INT with a 111 QB rating. Amazing how people tend to forget.

When healthy, I put him at five. He has a career rating of 90.8 and completes over 64% of his passes. I think Daunte has got completely shit on the last couple years. Here is a stat for ya, he is FIFTH IN ALL TIME PASSER RATING. He is behind the likes of Steve Young, Peyton Manning, Kurt Warner, and Joe freaking Montana. All 4 of those guys have been Super Bowl MVP's. That is counting his last two shitty years of being hurt.

Daunte got the majority of those numbers when he had receivers named Cris Carter and Randy Moss and played against NFC North teams which, at the time, had pass defenses which were average at best. He truly sucked at the start of the 2006 season which is why Harrington replaced him.

Was I the only person who saw the post-head injury Trent?

Regardless of what Trent does in Miami, Chicago, etc, getting rid of a 37 yr old QB that looked mediocre at best last year is the right move with a youth movement on the way.

I loved what Trent did for us the past 6 years but he is not the future and that is all I care about at this point.

The Chiefs aren't going anywhere this season, with or without Green, and he's nearing retirement.

I have a great deal of respect for Green and what he accomplished as a Chief, but if we can get some value for him, now, before he retires, then we have to do it.

The bears are said to be shopping Briggs around. That would be a great trade. Probly have to throw in a low draft pick.

Holy shit. Are you suggesting the bears would give up briggs for Green and a low pick?!

The Kansas City Chiefs are fielding calls from teams interested in Trent Green, but there's no indication what the club wants in exchange for the veteran quarterback.

That doesn't come as news to Jim Steiner, Green's agent, who is still waiting to hear from the Chiefs about a possible renegotiation of a contract scheduled to pay Green $7.2 million this season.

Green has been the team's starter since he was acquired in 2001 from St. Louis, but he missed eight games last year with a concussion and was replaced by Damon Huard.

Huard, 5-3 as a starter, was re-signed by the Chiefs on Tuesday, fueling speculation that Green might be headed for the discard pile. The Chiefs have said they must renegotiate Green's contract, otherwise they would consider trading or releasing him.

So far, however, there have been no talks -- though NFL sources said clubs contacted the Chiefs to gauge their interest in trading him. One person said the Chiefs aren't shopping Green but did say they fielded calls regarding the quarterback.



"I haven't had any conversation with them," said Steiner. "I anticipate something, but there's been nothing thus far."

Steiner said that "everyone knows" the Chiefs are shopping the veteran, who turns 37 this year, and is not sure what the re-signing of Huard means for his client. What he does know is that the Chiefs want to get younger. He also knows Green's time in Kansas City is limited, at best -- which means his future is dependent on the next phone call from the Chiefs.

"It depends on what they are or are not about to do," Steiner said of the Chiefs. "And what may be out there."

Green last year bowed out in the first game of the season after sustaining a concussion, and he missed a game for the first time in his career with the Chiefs. When he returned he never seemed the same, committing atypical mistakes and finishing with more interceptions (nine) than touchdowns (seven) for the first time since the 2001 season.

His quarterback rating of 74.1 marked the first time in five years he didn't finish in the 90-plus range, and it trailed Huard's mark of 98.0 by a substantial margin. The Chiefs were 4-4 with Green at quarterback.

What makes Green's departure possible is coach Herman Edwards' insistence that the club get younger. Huard turns 34 this year, but he's not the quarterback who could make Green expendable; Brodie Croyle is, and he's the 2006 third-round draft pick the club is eager to play.

Croyle figures in the Chiefs' long-term future; Trent Green does not. And even if the Chiefs were to reach a settlement on a new contract with Green there is this: If the Chiefs carry Green and Huard, one of them is destined to be the club's No. 3 quarterback -- with Croyle getting the backup job.

Yup. Nutless Carl didn't even talk to Trent or Steiner before doing the Huard deal. They haven't said a word to him. Supposedly the first time in Trent's career that moves like this have ever been made without even giving him a courtesy call.

All this crap is making me sick. I'm afraid this team is one okaayyy away from a 10 year slide.

Doesn't make it right, but makes sense not to Shop him, but to field calls.

Normally a 37 year old player ( as of next season ) would bring laughter at being shopped from teams interested.

Just bargaining power. Ugly side of the business.
