Travis Daniels traded

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that Miami has traded CB Travis Daniels to the Cleveland Browns for a seventh-round draft pick.

Apparently the Browns inquired about trading for Michael Lehan at first, but Miami did not want to part with him. That likely speaks well of Lehan's chances for a full recovery from his ankle injury in time to help this team out at the beginning of the season.

As I wrote in my positional preview on the cornerbacks, Daniels was likely going to be the fifth CB on the roster anyways, so getting rid of him for some value, even if it is only a seventh-round pick, is a solid move. This move probably guarantees a spot on the roster for Nathan Jones and the fifth CB spot is now up for grabs, with Joey Thomas, Chris Roberson, and Will Billingsley as the competitors.
