The Washington Redskins have given permission to quarterback Patrick Ramsey to visit a couple of teams in preparation for a possible trade, according to ESPN.com, with one of the teams being the Dolphins. The other two teams are the New York Jets and Detroit Lions.

Ramsey is a former first-round pick, but he's on his way out after four mostly unproductive seasons in Washington because of the presence of veteran Mark Brunell and 2005 first-round pick Jason Campbell.

The Redskins reportedly first were asking for a second-round pick in exchange for Ramsey, but they're dreaming if they think they'll get anything that good.

It's more realistic that Ramsey could be had for a fourth-round pick or less.

If the Dolphins do wind up making a deal for Ramsey, it would be more to see if he can be developed into a future starter as opposed to counting on him being the quarterback in 2006.

So the Dolphins could make a deal for Ramsey and still go out and go someone else, perhaps a Drew Brees or a Daunte Culpepper.

Ramsey, who started 23 games in his first three seasons, attempted only 25 passes last season, completing 15 for 252 yards.

According to published reports, defensive tackle Sam Adams visited the Dolphins on Tuesday and center Kevin Mawae was scheduled to visit on Wednesday.

Mawae, released by the Jets a few days ago, said Monday his first priority is finding a team with a chance to win a championship.
