The Miami Dolphins signed Broncos RB CJ Anderson to an offer sheet last week but the Broncos opted to match the offer and keep Anderson. That leaves the Dolphins with Jay Ajayi, Damien Williams and Jahwan Edwards as the top backs on their depth chart. (Who? That's what I'm saying.)
The next logical question here from a Chiefs fan is ... Hey Dolphins, would you like one of our running backs?
The Chiefs have three backs they like (Jamaal Charles, Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware) and another back that isn't really involved offensively (Knile Davis). Running backs in general don't have much trade value so the idea of flipping Knile Davis, the least used Chiefs back, for a mid round draft pick or higher isn't going to happen.
As for the others, I honestly have no idea what kind of trade value West or Ware have, if any. The one player we know has some trade value is Jamaal Charles, who is under contract for two more seasons.
#Dolphins miss out on CJ Anderson. Why not call the #Chiefs and offer a Rd2 + Rd7 for Jamaal Charles?— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) March 15, 2016
I don't really like this proposed trade from Matt Miller. While Chiefs GM John Dorsey has done a nice job avoiding busts in the first three rounds of the draft, it's a risk that a second round pick would have a bigger impact on this team than Jamaal Charles. Plus, I'm not convinced that the Dolphins would make this trade considering Jamaal is 29 years old and coming off his second ACL tear. The biggest thing for me though - the value in that trade, a second round pick, is actually pretty good - is that the Chiefs believe they are close. Now is not the time to be selling off assets. It's reasonable to think that Jamaal has 1-2 more years of high level productivity left in him. Count me in on Team No Trade.
