The 2012 NFL draft had a ridiculous number of trades, but the vast majority of those only included draft picks.
The NFL has so few team-altering trades that the mere rumor of one sparks endless fodder for commentary. The reality is that meaningful trades of brand-name players who genuinely make an impact are rare.
Brandon Marshall has a real chance to transform the Chicago Bears offense for some time.
Although considering the unpredictably of Roger Goodell's punishments, he could not. Hopefully, the story that Marshall maintains is the truth.
Other than him, what move will have a real impact on an organization? DeMeco Ryans could be helpful, yet there are legitimate concerns regarding his durability and ability.
Without legitimate distractions, time moves at a snail's pace.
