Report: Players want trades away from tanking Dolphins
The Miami Dolphins’ clear intentions to tank this year are having some real-life consequences on their current team.
Not only did the Dolphins fail to make upgrades this offseason, but then they traded away Laremy Tunsil, Kenny Stills, Kiko Alonso, and many other of their good players. The recent moves telegraphed that they were stockpiling for the future. Then their product on the field Week 1 showed just how awful they are: they got spanked 59-10 by the Baltimore Ravens.
On “Football Night in America” Sunday night, NBC Sports’ Mike Florio reported that players told their agents after the loss to help them get away from the team.

The Dolphins apparently say nobody has asked for a trade.

Maybe the players’ agents just haven’t done so yet. If they do, we’re guessing it will be a case of “take a number” because the line to get out will be long.
If they want help in working their way out of Miami, may we offer some advice?
