Comings and goings

The Dolphins this week traded a 7th round draft pick for a defensive tackle who I had never heard of.  But then, I suppose that's what they would have gotten if they had actually used the pick in the draft - I guy I had never heard of.  At least they have more depth at DT now, especially with Ferguson's age and the departure of Vonnie Holliday.
And there's a rumor circulating that Samson Satele has been traded to the Raiders for a draft pick.
We're sorry to see Samson leave, of course, and lament that our team is no longer a little Samoan island in the NFL.  Under Cam "Cam" Cameron, the Phins had something like 6 guys from Samoa, and it made things interesting even if they didn't do the Haka that year.  As we reported, they did learn it this past season, but by then, there were only a couple of guys left.  And now the closest connection we have to Pacific Islands is Davone Bess who played at Hawaii.
Ahhhh well....
