News: Stills was traded to the Dolphins on Friday in exchange for linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and a third-round draft pick.
Impact: As expected, the Dolphins and Saints were able to finalize a trade, with Miami adding Stills to a receiving corps that already includes Mike Wallace, Jarvis Landry and Jordan Cameron. There have also been rumors that the Dolphins still want to keep Charles Clay, but such a move would be hard to justify at this stage. Stills will no longer get to play with Drew Brees, but he figures to start on the outside and have a key role in Miami's offense. It is still possible the Dolphins could release Wallace, in which case there would be plenty of targets for both Landry and Stills to keep owners happy.

News: The Saints and Dolphins are in the process of working out a trade for Stills, Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: Stills will turn 23 in April, after posting an impressive 53-931-3 receiving line on just 85 targets in his second NFL season. He should fetch a pick that's at least a few rounds higher than the fifth-rounder he was originally selected with, assuming the trade is centered around draft picks. Stills would likely start across from Mike Wallace in Miami, providing an upgrade over the departed Brian Hartline. The Dolphins recently added tight end Jordan Cameron, while fellow tight end Charles Clay received the transition tag but now seems likely to sign elsewhere. Furthermore, 2014 second-round draft pick Jarvis Landry is locked into at least a key slot role, following a solid rookie season. It's possible the Dolphins will revisit moving on from Wallace if this trade is finalized.
