Daniels Dealt

Travis Daniels' roller-coaster ride with the Dolphins is over. The former fourth-round pick, who went from starter to bench player and from cornerback to safety and back to cornerback, was traded Wednesday to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick.

Daniels was a fight just to make the roster this year, and he didn't help his cause with a terrible performance in Saturday's preseason victory over Jacksonville.

He easily was beaten on two third-down plays, although he got bailed out on one of them when the receiver dropped the pass.

That the Dolphins were able to get anything for him actually is a nice coup, although it would be surprising if the draft pick was anything better than a sixth- or seventh-round choice.

The trade means another Nick Saban draft pick is gone. Saban, who coached Daniels at LSU, made 12 picks in his two years in Miami and six remain -- Ronnie Brown, Matt Roth, Channing Crowder, Jason Allen, Derek Hagan and Rodrique Wright.
