Seau has told friends he is excited about the interest from the Dolphins. Seau, 34, is a 13-year veteran who has played his entire career with the Chargers. However, the Chargers gave Seau permission earlier this month to seek a trade.
Agent Marvin Demoff has said he contacted the Dolphins.
"I called the Dolphins and they said they'd look into it," Demoff said. "If everything worked out, they said it looked like a good fit. It was a very casual conversation, but I believe they're interested."
The complication for Seau and the Chargers is that Seau is due a guaranteed bonus of $2.7 million on April 15. San Diego is hoping that a team wanting to acquire Seau would be willing to pick up that payment.
That is highly unlikely. In addition, Seau is due to make a base salary of $3 million this coming season. The Dolphins currently don't have enough money under the salary cap to fit Seau, but could create room by signing Pro Bowl middle linebacker Zach Thomas to a contract extension.
The Dolphins, according to a source, might be willing to surrender a low-round draft choice for Seau, but only if the Chargers pay the guaranteed money and Seau agrees to a new contract that reduces his $3 million base salary this season.
Word is only Miami, Green Bay and Arizona are interested in Seau.
Seau to Miami?
