Trades in the NFL are very different than in other sports.
Unlike the NBA and MLB, rarely are star players traded in the NFL. And while draft-day trades are incredibly common, player-for-player trades are extremely scarce in football.
Last year with the lockout in full effect, there were a plethora of preseason trades with the likes of Reggie Bush, Greg Olsen, Brodrick Bunkley, Lee Evans and Tim Hightower being shipped elsewhere. Already this offseason, star players Brandon Marshall, DeMeco Ryans, Asante Samuel and others have found new homes.
Oh, yeah. And the Jets acquired a new backup quarterback.
Let's take a look at five players who could be moved prior to the 2012 NFL season opener.
