    Dolphins trade Surtain to Chiefs for Second Round Pick

    Report: Dolphins trade Surtain to Chiefs

    April 22, 2005, 10:01 AM EDT

    NEW YORK -- The Dolphins will have a second-round pick in Saturday's draft after all. reported Friday morning that the Dolphins have agreed to send cornerback Patrick Surtain to Kansas City for a second-round pick, which is the 46th overall selection. The Dolphins also agreed to swap fifth-round choices with Kansas City, shifting from the 138th pick to No. 162.

    The Dolphins, who were without a second-round pick because of last year's trade with Philadelphia to acquire A.J. Feeley, began shopping Surtain in February when determining the sides were too far apart on a contract extension. Surtain, who is entering the final year of his contract, is expected to sign a multiyear extension with Kansas City that includes an eight-digit signing bonus.

    The trade is contingent upon Surtain passing a Chiefs physical.

    The Dolphins will receive considerable salary cap relief by trading Surtain, which will help the team sign its incoming rookie draft class. Surtain had a cap number of $8.4 million with a 2005 base salary of $5.9 million.

    But the Dolphins will now have to find a replacement for Surtain, a three-time Pro Bowl selection. Unless the Dolphins address the position in the draft, Reggie Howard, Will Poole and Mario Edwards are the top three candidates to start opposite Sam Madison.

    Good trade. Surtain should still do well in KC. I wish the Rams would make some trades to bolster their defense a bit, but I guess the Hawthorne signing is supposed to take care of that.
