Another expensive Dolphin bust sent packing
The Miami Dolphins have traded Linebacker Eddie Moore.
The Dolphins continue to collect linebackers from the New Orleans Saints as they acquired middle linebacker Courtney Watson for oft-injured linebacker Eddie Moore Wednesday.
The trade was confirmed by the Saints in a release. The Dolphins did not confirm the transaction.
The Dolphins signed former Saints linebacker Sedrick Hodge in March to help soften the departure of outside linebacker Junior Seau.
Moore, a second-round pick out of Tennessee by the Dolphins in 2003, has finished each of his first three NFL seasons on injured reserve. He has played in only 18 games, including five last season before sustaining a year-ending knee injury in November. Moore has 35 career tackles, including one last season.
Watson, a 6-foot-1, 246-pound second-round pick from Notre Dame in 2004, started six of the nine games he appeared in last season and recorded 44 tackles and a sack. As a rookie, Watson notched three double-digit tackle games and finished with 71 tackles. Last season, he, too, ended the season on injured reserve with a knee injury.
Looks like Miami traded one injured player for another. Watson has had off the field problems too. He's been arrested for DUI.
I guess this trade will be garbage for garbage. Why else would New Orleans trade for a injured underperforming LB? Moore was just another expensive bust for Miami, he was their first pick in the 2003 draft. At least Miami didn't repeat the Feeley debacle by throwing a draft pick in to get rid of Moore.
