Funny at the combine McVay was quoted as saying Hayes was a good player and we plan on keeping good players.

Never listen to coach speak.

While you're absolutely right, I don't think this was about Jayes being a good player or not as much as it was about him not schematically fitting what were about to run. This trade is very similar to the one a lot of you guys have been putting in your mock drafts--just to the dolphins rather than the Browns.

I liked Hayes a lot. Dude gave 100% every snap and he was a true player. Sad to see him go but he obviously didn't have a place on this D with us going towards the 3-4 look.

To only move up 17 spots that late in the draft is next to nothing.

we saved 3 million dollars with that trade instead of cutting him.
plus we moved up 17 spots.
that's fine. he wasn't a fit.

Trade makes sense and we knew something was going to happen with him and Simms. Sucks to lose a guy like WH though he was great in the community as well as a fun guy to watch. Some NSFW in his farewell speech.

He said we traded him for a stapler and a coffee machine lol. He's not wrong. We moved up 17 spots at a point in the draft where it doesn't even matter. Could we not have at least kept our 7th rounder.

Everybody knew he was going to get cut if we didn't trade him. That going to drive the value down.

Wow, that was honestly a pathetic trade. Was that the best we could do for a relatively productive DE?? Seems like we just jumped at the first taker, which makes me think we have someone with a large salary waiting to sign today after the trade and cuts have been approved. I sure hope so because we got fleeced in that trade. I'd rather have kept him for what we got.

He doesn't fit the scheme so it makes no sense to keep him.

Lmao. The trade wasn't about getting something valuable for him. He is a 31 year old career rotational player with limited ability that doesn't fit into our plans and everyone knows that. What were you expecting? A 4th rounder??? A 5th? Get real!

The trade was about getting him off the books. And as a small added bonus we moved up from the 7th to the 6th. There are large successes and small successes. Consider this a small one. Be happy he isn't dead money.

I was never expecting a 4th or 5th but Hayes for a 6th or 7th straight up isn't unreasonable. Instead we just swap picks to move up 17 spots so late in the draft it really doesn't matter.

I agree but we didn't have much leverage in the trade. Everyone knew we were trying to create cap space and Hayes wasn't going to fit into our scheme.
