It had been rumored that the Dolphins were going to release Tannehill at some point this offseason. Miami held on seeing if they could get anything back for their starting QB. The Dolphins will receive a 2019 seventh-round pick and a 2020 fourth-round pick from the Titans in exchange for Tannehill and a sixth-round pick in 2019.Maybe Josh Rosen ends up there and everything I’m about to say won’t matter.But this could be potentially big for the San Francisco 49ers on a couple of fronts. Let’s say Miami is punting 2019 for a QB they’re in love with in 2020. No sane person is going to rely on Brock Osweiler, even if the intention is to lose. At least roll with somebody that is competent. The 49ers would be wise to see if they could get a draft pick for C.J. Beathard or Nick Mullens. Whether that’s a third or fourth pick. Before you immediately shut that down, think about the trades that go down in the NFL. Every year we are surprised. Mainly, it’s the Patriots. I feel like it’s just because they’re not afraid to ask. If Miami says no, counter or move on. You don’t know until you ask, though.Okay, the other scenario. Let’s say that Dolphins are infatuated with a QB. Let’s pretend it’s Dwayne Haskins. In general manager Chris Grier’s eyes, Haskins is the second coming of Dan Marino. It’s far-fetched, but you get what I’m saying. To Grier, Haskins is worth moving up and not risking another team has a chance to draft him. That is, once the Arizona Cardinals select Kyler Murray.The decision then becomes is Nick Bosa so good that you’re going to pass on multiple first round picks? These will be some of the situations that occur. If I’m John Lynch, I’ll take the extra picks all day. It’s a numbers game. Moving down also gives you the opportunity to fill more roster spots. You’re able to do so with more quality picks. If the Dolphins are indeed desperate to move up for a QB, the 49ers would be wise to take full advantage of that. In case you’re wondering how former 49ers tackle Trent Brown has been doing since his trade to New England: pretty damn well. He’s starting at left tackle Sunday in the Super Bowl, favored to win, and heading into free agency with a big payday likely. A day-two mid-draft trade last spring swapped the last year of Brown’s rookie contract plus the 49ers’ second of two fifth-round picks (#143 overall) for the Patriot’s 3rd round choice (#95). Those picks turned into cornerback Tarvarius Moore, who showed strong late in the season for San Francisco, and linebacker Ja’Whaun Bentley Adrian Colbert Jersey , who won a starting job at LB for New England and was playing great (14 tackles and an interception) before a torn bicep ended his season after 3 games.Once he arrived in Foxboro,Brown immediately moved to left tackle and took over the starting job from the first day of training camp. New England saved a lot of money this year by letting their previous left tackle Nate Solder walk; the veteran made $10 million this year for the Giants, going up to $17 million next year. He’s now the NFL’s highest paid offensive lineman. In contrast, the Patriots are paying a grand total of $1.9M for Brown this year. That changes after this season, since he’s now a free agent, and there are no guarantees Brown will stay with the Patriots. He has a big spotlight in Atlanta to pump up his free agent value, and Belichick is great at getting the most out of inexpensive players.Then again, New England is a great spot for a young lineman, with a pretty decent quarterback famous for getting rid of the ball quickly, a legendary position coach (Dante Scarnecchia), and talented colleagues on the line. PFF ranked this rebuilt line as fourth best in the NFL. The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers both have great pass rushes, but neither got a sack against Brady in these playoffs.Brown has improved steadily all season, and has been a stud in the playoffs, holding both Melvin Ingram and Dee Ford to no sacks and one pressure each. He is PFF’s top-graded tackle in the playoffs this year.Even in the run game, which has always been his weakness, the Patriots have figured out how to make the most of his unique combination of size and mobility: in goal line packages. Zack Cox of New England Sports Network points out that:He had a star moment in crunch time in the AFC Championship game, luring Ford into lining up offsides, which wiped out a game ending interception. Some fans thought Brown was lined up illegally off the line himself Tevin Coleman Jersey White , but photos show that he’s so huge (6’8”, 360 lbs.) that it just looked that way. He helmet broke the plane of the center’s hip, as required, but his back foot was two yards behind any of the other offensive linemen.That isn’t to say that the Niners made a bad trade. Brown was not a good fit for Kyle Shanahan’s outside zone running game, and only played ten games in 2017 before going on injured reserve. He was called for 18 penalties in 31 games on the Niners, versus only five this entire season, where he’s played 97.3% of the Patriots offensive snaps.Clearly he’s fitting in better with New England, but San Francisco’s OL also improved by subtraction when Brown left. I don’t think there’s any way that Matt Breida, Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson would have been racked up so many rushing yards in Shanahan’s scheme with Brown still on the team.If Tarvarius Moore develops into a solid cornerback, this may be one of those rare trades where both teams benefit. Add in the financial implications with Brown headed to free agency, and that could be further noteworthy for the 49ers. That said, I predict that when Bill Belichick retires, New England will miss his work as a GM as much or more than his coaching.In any case, Trent Brown is looking forward to a Super Bowl bonus check and maybe a ring, plus a big second contract as a starting left tackle somewhere in the NFL next year. Life is good.
