Unlike other professional sports, the day of the NFL’s midseason trading deadline doesn’t usually make for a lot of headlines.
If deals are to be struck in this league, they usually happen in the offseason during the free-agency period or in the days leading up to or days of the NFL draft.
And that’s what we’re forecasting here.
Yes, these are trades we would like to see happen. We’re not checking the chart for ultimate value.
Will they occur? Obviously there are no guarantees. But the key here is trades we "would like to see," meaning moves that would improve both teams either immediately or over the course of time.
As a famous Don once put it, "It’s not personal. It’s just business."
Can’t recall if that was Shula or Knotts?
