Some low-level trades could be coming today

LetsMakeADeal

As teams continue to move from 80 to 53 players, one dynamic that possibly will play out entails trades of bottom-of-the-roster players for other bottom-of-the-roster players, or possibly low-round draft picks.

A league source with knowledge of the way the wind is blowing explains that teams with a surplus of talent at certain positions will try to move the players before cutting them.

It’s not an unprecedented phenomenon, but the upside-down nature of the 2011 offseason/preseason has left some teams with greater needs than usual at certain positions, making them more willing to make a deal than to roll the dice and wait for the opportunity to scan the waiver wire.

    Seattle trades TJack to Washington for John Beck and a pair of Air Jordans.

    waiting for joselio hanson to get delt for a 7th rounder or simply gets cut, we can use the extra 2.1 mil in cap-space! its unbelievable how this nickel-corner turned his sub-par skills into good money! time for you to go!

    I’m done with this crap site. Now you don’t post comments that don’t agree with your dribble. At least before you were a man about it.

    The time is now Billy Devaney. If you can get anything in return for Mardy Gillyard I will totally forgive you for the mistake of drafting him in the first place.

    mojosmagic, it’s “drivel” unless you were making a basketball reference.

    Phillrick,
    Joselio Hanson is a great slot corner. One of the best in the league. Out wide is a complete different story, however.

    Mojosmagic,
    I can’t believe you got that comment through the moderator. Yeah, they cherry pick comments. Generally, anything the least bit critical is taken down immediately. However, it is cool to wish players get injured or say similarly awful things.

    A league source? A 4 year old knows this! Yes teams will try to get something for some players. No kidding!

    Trading the players is also a good way to keep them away from interested division rivals, whether it’s a rookie or a veteran.

    Agreed……the censors are in rare form today.

    My “great sources”and “Captain Obvious”comments were taken down, as will this one, most likely.
