The Jaguars have acquired guard Justin Smiley from the Dolphins, with compensation as yet unknown.
Smiley started 12 games for the league's best run-blocking line a year ago.

I know that there have been "rumblings" about Smiley's shoulder being shot, so passing the physical isn't a given, but if the deal has already been announced, you gotta figure the Jaguars would pass him through, right?
Another thought: can teams actually tie compensation to physicals? Like the Jags sending a 6th to the Dolphins if he completely passes with flying colors, or a 7th if he has a few inhibitions or something? Just wondering...
As the story says, if Smiley fails a physical, the deal is off. Same for any traded player.
I'm guessing they negotiate the compensation based on expecting a player to be in a certain condition, the physical is just to make sure he is that good, not some standard level of health.
Like test driving a car, you just want to make sure there are no nasty surprises the previous owner failed to mention.
It's written into the CBA - a failed physical automatically negates any deal.
I take it the decision on whether a player passes his physical or not is completely up to the team applying it...
To the best of my knowledge, yes.
For a conditional seventh rounder? That seems pretty good from the Jag's point of view.
Mike and Tom finally get a shot at the southern divisions and wade through the fetid morass of mediocrity. Look out for Hott Takez!
