On a day when NFL free agency is supposed to overshadow all other NFL news, the Dolphins and Bears decided to steal the spotlight and workout a blockbuster deal.
On Tuesday afternoon the Chicago Bears traded 2 third round picks to the Miami Dolphins for star receiver Brandon Marshall.
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall were teammates in Denver and seemed to be an unstoppable duo. This deal makes tons of sense for the Chicago bears, but we wonder what the Dolphins are thinking. Unless they convince Reggie Wayne to sign, why would Peyton Manning go to Miami when they just traded away their biggest weapon?

@crotana Brandon Marshall >>>> Reggie Wayne. You don't trade the offense's #1 weapon to make room for another WR (that isn't as good).
