DAVIE, Fla. - With a pair of trades, the Miami Dolphins acquired receiver Kenny Stills from the Saints and sent receiver Mike Wallace to the Vikings. But Stills says he wasn't brought in to replace anybody.

Speaking at the Dolphins complex Saturday, Stills says he's just in Miami to help the Dolphins win.

Stills is only 22 and wasn't even part of New Orleans' starting unit for most of last season, but he nonetheless made 63 receptions for 931 yards and three touchdowns.

He said he was surprised by the trade Friday but embraced it, in part because he likes the Dolphins' direction after a busy first week of free agency.

Stills said his transition will be easier because he already knows several Miami players.
