With two days left before the NFL’s mandatory cuts, Thursday is a logical day for general managers across the league to talk to each other about possible trades of players on the bubble.
According to NBCSports.com and PFT’s Tom Curran, Jaguars offensive lineman Tony Pashos and Seahawks receiver Deion Branch are two of the players available.
PFT has written previously about Branch, so his availabilty is not a surprise. Pashos is due $4.335 million, and NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora writes that Pashos is not guaranteed to make the team after moving inside to guard.
The Jaguars gave Pashos a $10 million signing bonus in 2007, but his play fell off last year. Any interested team would likely want to reduce his salary. The Ravens, where Pashos was drafted, could potentially be interested at the right price if they are looking for tackle depth.
Still, trades this late are difficult. Any team that is interested in Pashos knows that he may be available for “free” in a few days.
