Having off loaded WR Jarvis Landry to the Browns Friday without getting a significant draft pick in return, it appears that the Fins are at it again. And, this time, it involves right tackle and former #1 pick, Ja’Wuan James.
A report in the Ft. Lauderdale Sun Sentinel says that VP Mike Tannenbaum and staff are actively shopping James before the circus of free agency begins:

Hyde lays out the case for wanting to deal James, but the Fins would need to find a dance partner for a player that finished the year injured and because Miami picked up his fifth year option last off season, that means that they are on the hook for his $9.3 million, for now.
There have been a litany of trades in recent days, with the Rams and the Browns being the most active. This is because, most teams are looking to make a move with players under contract before they either have to make a huge financial commitment to the player (Landry) or are looking to release him, if they can’t find a taker.
Again, our understanding is that the Fins would take the full cap hit of $9.3 million if they did that with James, because he’s injured.
James does have 47 career starts for the Dolphins often criticized offensive line, and the team is still trying to figure out if guard Jermon Bushrod is also in the plans. Bushrod is about to be an unrestricted free agent this week, who has maintained that he wants to keep playing.
You have to believe the the best the Fins can do is a late round pick.
This is especially, when Landry only commanded a fourth round pick this year and a seventh rounder next year and he is was the Dolphins best weapon the last two years.
We will soon find out in the next day or so, if there is really a marked or not for Ja’Wuan James.
