And then there's this from Adam Schefter:
Five trades that should happen (but won't)
On Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET, we'll again experience the least exciting, most boring trade deadline in all of sports -- the NFL trade deadline. It is the one area in which baseball, basketball and hockey decidedly out-excite the NFL.
So, in an effort to spruce it up, we're proposing five trades that should, but won't, be made -- although we plead with the involved teams to reconsider.
1. Washington trades quarterback Robert Griffin III to Kansas City for quarterback Chase Daniel.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid liked Griffin III coming out of the draft, Brad Childress is Kansas City's spread game analyst and the Chiefs could have a quarterback their head coach could groom to run it. Perfect. In turn, Washington would acquire another intriguing quarterback alternative, someone the Chiefs have shopped despite the fact he was impressive in the preseason.
A couple other interesting ones in there. I do wish NFL GMs were more creative with player trades, but dead cap penalties probably factor in because of the hard cap. Maybe they can address that in the new CBA? To soften the dead cap space rules specifically for trades, or allow teams to negotiate who will absorb the penalty as part of the trade?
