Dolphins Trade Brandon Marshall To Chicago Because Of Peyton Manning

Why would the Dolphins trade their best receiver to the Bears just two years after executing a deal to get him in the first place? Easy: To get Peyton Manning. Or so goes the theory of those who believe Manning had qualms about playing with Brandon Marshall, who is known to be ornery despite his obvious talents. Today's trade, for which the Dolphins received a pair of third-round picks, reunites Marshall with Jay Cutler, his quarterback in Denver from 2006-08. But it leaves Miami without a wideout who caught more than 51 passes last season. Which must be just what Manning wanted, too.
