What are the Dolphins getting in Trent Green?

We talked to a source close to the Kansas City Chiefs this week to find out what Miami is getting in quarterback Trent Green. Here is his response -

"What the Dolphins are getting is an aging quarterback who has lost some zip on his ball," said the source. "He has problems throwing out patterns and getting the ball deep downfield.

"His offensive line didn't help him a year ago but I can't see the Dolphins line any better to be honest with you. He has not looked good in OTA's or Mini-Camp. He didn't look good in training camp last summer.

"I think the Dolphins are getting him to be a leader on this team and they hope that they can get him to win eight games and to show the young QB's what it takes to be successful in the NFL.

"After he came back last year, he had a difficulty making the routine plays. His ball has a tendency to fall short of the target or it lacked zip to get it to a partially open receiver.

"In my opinion he has one year left in him. After that, anything they get will be a bonus.

"He does have a standing offer from CBS and ESPN to join their football coverage when he retires, so I can't see this being a long term deal in Miami."
