Chambers Traded to Chargers

The Dolphins decided some changes needed to be made on their roster, and they pulled off a big move on Tuesday when they traded wide receiver Chris Chambers to the San Diego Chargers in exchange for a second-round pick.

Because San Diego figures to finish with a good record, it probably won't be a high second-rounder, but it's still a good return for Chambers.

A former second-round pick himself, Chambers spent six-plus seasons with the Dolphins, with his best year coming in 2005 when he was selected to the Pro Bowl after finishing with 82 catches for 1,118 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Chambers becomes the third Dolphins player this year to be traded for one or more draft picks, following wideout Wes Welker and kicker Olindo Mare. Punter Donnie Jones also was allowed to leave for St. Louis as a restricted free agent with the Dolphins getting a seventh-round pick as compensation.
