The outrage certainly seemed warranted, as Chambers was quite possibly the team's most-talented receiver of the decade, highlighted by a 1,100-yard, 11-touchdown performance on the way to a Pro Bowl selection in 2005.
It looks like the Dolphins may have gotten the better end of that deal, however, selecting future franchise quarterback Chad Henne with the pick acquired for Chambers.
Meanwhile, Chambers struggled to establish himself in San Diego, with his numbers declining each of his three seasons with the team, culminating in his release on Nov. 2.
Chambers had just nine receptions on the season prior to his release, and at 31 years of age it seems he has lost his ability to separate and be an impact player.
That being the case, the Dolphins receiving corps is certainly one of the worst in the NFL and devoid of play-makers, and an argument can be made Chambers is still more talented than anyone at the position currently on the team's roster.
So should the Dolphins look for a reunion with Chambers? Check out this video to find out what I think:
