NFL fans have grown restless with no offseason activity to follow during the lockout. But coaches and front office executives — a collection of workaholics whose lives revolve around football — are even more restless.
That’s why Titans General Manager Mike Reinfeldt foresees a lot of trades coming during the upcoming NFL draft.
“For some reason I think there’s probably going to be a little bit more [trading], but I can’t really tell you why,” Reinfeldt told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “I just have a gut that people are kind of anxious to do something and say, ‘What the heck? Let’s make a few trades.'”
As long as the lockout is going on, players cannot be traded. So all teams can do is trade draft picks. But once those draft picks start coming off the board, Reinfeldt thinks his colleagues will be anxious to do all they can. It’s the only chance they’ll have to do substantive work until the lockout ends.
