Report: Dolphins turned down trade offers for Laremy Tunsil
The Miami Dolphins are in rebuild mode and aren’t shying away from the possibility of trading some of their key players for some draft capital. Among their current players, it seems as if Laremy Tunsil will remain with the team despite interest around the NFL.
According to Barry Jackson and Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, Miami has turned down trade offers involving Tunsil. The belief is that Miami is willing to part ways with veteran players on their current roster. They will also listen to offers that they see as beneficial to the franchise in accordance with their younger guys.
The Dolphins selected Tunsil with the 13th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Ole Miss. The talented offensive lineman has started at left tackle for the Dolphins in the past three seasons. Tunsil has only missed four games due to injury in his career so far.
At 25-years old and playing at a premier position, he is inevitably going to draw interest from other teams. For the time being, the Dolphins are hesitant to deal their young offensive tackle. However, maybe a team offers something that they can’t refuse in the near future.
Along with Tunsil, Miami has reportedly been shopping around veterans Kiko Alonso and Reshad Jones. Additionally, Kenny Stills seems to be popping up in trade rumors after his awkward situation involving Brian Flores.
The Dolphins are starting fresh under the new regime of Flores and some players can be had for the right price. It remains to be seen if Miami ever picks up the phone on offers that include Tunsil in them though.
