Richard Sherman trade talk. Should Miami move on this before Pats

Kevin Nogle wrote:The Seattle Seahawks are contemplating trading All Pro cornerback Richard Sherman. The Miami Dolphins would like to add at least one top-tier cornerback this year, bolstering a unit that was riddled with injuries last season. Is this a perfect match?
Now, to be fair, the Seahawks do not seem to be desperate to trade Sherman, but they are not eliminating the idea either. This seems to be a New England Patriots-type move for the Seahawks, where they are looking at an expensive player ($13.6M this year) who is nearing the end of his contract (through 2018) who will be 30 when his contract expires. Could they get something - and something substantial - in return for Sherman?
If the Seahawks trade Sherman, they will pick up $4.4 million in dead money, but they will get back about $9 million in space this year. A team adding Sherman would be paying him about $11.2 million per season over the next two years.
As of Thursday morning, the Dolphins have $20.4 million in cap space for 2017, according to the NFL Players Association.

Saw some reports that Miami might be looking into this but at the same time so is the Patsy. Should Miami make a move for and get Maxwell and Sherman on the same team or try their luck within the draft.

IMO, Sherman is not going anywhere. I also think Butler will stay in New England.

I would not be opposed to adding Sherman at all, and it's the type of splash move that Ross and Tannenbaum love - but the best thing the Dolphins can do is build through the draft.

If it could be done without draft picks I'd have no problem with the move.
