Big Move on the Way?

New coach Cam Cameron and General Manager Randy Mueller have shown very early and very clearly that they're not afraid of making moves, and there just might be another one of the way imminently.

It's no secret the Dolphins have talked to the Kansas City Chiefs about a deal involving quarterback Trent Green, but the word now is that a trade could be consummated as early as Friday.

The two issues involved are Green agreeing to restructure his contract, which currently calls for a $7.2 million base salary in 2007 -- an amount the Dolphins will not pay -- and the two teams agreeing on compensation.

According to an NFL source, the price for Green might consist of a third-round pick in this year's draft, along with a sixth-rounder in 2008.

Another source suggested the trade instead might involve a fourth-round pick, and there's the possibility that kicker Olindo Mare could be included in the deal.

Mare clearly has no future in Miami after the Dolphins signed Giants free agent Jay Feely on Thursday, and Kansas City could use an upgrade over talented but inconsistent Lawrence Tynes.

The feeling is Green wants his situation resolved as soon as possible, and he's clearly intrigued by the idea of rejoining former Kansas City QB coach Terry Shea and Cameron, who was an assistant with the Redskins in 1995-96 when Green was there.
