Longing for Green – Miami Tweaks Deal for Chiefs QB

Could the most longest awaited move in NFL history finally be on the verge of getting done? Well, let’s put it this way – at least the Dolphins and Chiefs are at least talking about the move to finally get quarterback Trent Green into a Fins uni and out of Big Red. The latest bit of talking between the two states that the Dolphins have modified their trade offer for Green. The Miami Herald reports Friday that the Dolphins are now willing to offer a conditional sixth-round pick that would become a fifth if Green meets certain conditions.

The deal over the past few months was that Miami was only going to give up a 6th rounder for Green, a QB who they already have a new contract in place with and ready to go once the deal gets done. KC all along has wanted at least a fourth-round pick for their former starter under center. Jim Steiner, Green’s agent, was quoted in the Herald as stating “I think we will get a deal done, there have been a lot of conversations.”

There are some new rumors out there that suggest the Atlanta Falcons have an interest in Green, this due to the off the field issues with troubled QB Michael Vick. Steiner told the paper that neither he nor his client have heard from the Falcons. Steiner also did not given an indication if Green will show up at Chiefs training camp in July if the deal with Miami does not take place. ESPN’s John Clayton stated earlier this week that the Green deal should finally get done sometime in June.
