Remember, this is only "speculation," which is about as good as a three-dollar bill. But with the upcoming free-agency period (March 13 cannot get here soon enough) and the NFL draft in April (another date on my calendar), football will be in the hearts and minds of fans all year round.
There are many teams looking to move up draft boards, find "diamonds" in free agency and make the one trade that can free themselves of issues on and off the field and solidify their chances of making the postseason with the hope of becoming next season's New York Giants.
But what if a team has a player (or two) who improved their stock in 2011 and would be welcome additions anywhere they go (with the exception of a few teams that might not need their services)? Isn't it worth a look? I mean, not everyone has a Drew Brees or Tom Brady behind center or Adrian Peterson in the backfield.
These players not only helped their trade value this past season, but they also showed at times how very important they are to their team's success.
