Brandon Marshall is about to be traded to the Miami Dolphins, solving the receiving problems that have blighted Miami over the past few seasons.

The Dolphins will give up their second round picks in this year, and next year's draft in exchange for the enigmatic receiver.

Marshall has wanted out of Denver for a long time, and has finally got his wish in a deal that appears to suit all parties.

He is the proven playmaker that Miami needs in their offence. At 6-4 and 230 pounds, he is a big, physical player, and he has exceptional hands.

He is just 26 years old, and has caught over 100 passes, for over 1,000 yards, in each of the last three seasons.

He even caught an NFL-record 21 passes in a single game against Indianapolis Colts last year.

Marshall is the solution to Miami's offensive problems. Now many are wondering whether he will be paired with Dez Bryant courtesy of Miami's 12th pick.

Finally Dolphins fans get the news they wanted. Savor it.

Brandon Marshall has become a Miami Dolphin.
