NFL Trade Deadline: Meet the Candidates

Icon1. J.P. Losman

It's no secret that Losman's tenure with the Bills has been mediocre at best—and with rookie Trent Edwards outplaying him, J.P. could be on the way out of Buffalo.

Losman's departure would be a difficult pill for the Bills to swallow, considering the first-round pick they spent on him—but the team is going nowhere with him at the helm.

At this point, they'd be better served bringing back Doug Flutie.

Possibilities: Minnesota, Kansas City, Cleveland, Miami


Icon2. Rex Grossman

While Rex has had his moments in Chicago, his time might be up.

Grossman is eligible for free agency, and I'm sure the Bears would like to re-sign him for the right price—but Brian Griese appears to have a lock on the starting job, and don't forget that Kyle Orton went undefeated in a brief stint as a rookie.

Maybe a team takes a flyer on Rex and tries to unlock his potential. He would make a nice backup in the right situation.

Possibilities: Miami, Kansas City, Minnesota, Oakland, Denver, Atlanta


3. Michael Turner

The Chargers running back could start for many teams in the league—and he won't get a look anytime soon in San Diego.

The price tag is probably a second-round pick, but Norv Turner would be wise to keep Turner around as a second option in the backfield.

Possibilities: Miami, Tampa Bay, Atlanta, New England, Denver


4. Tatum Bell

The Detroit RB is unhappy about playing time, and may end up back with the Broncos. With Travis Henry soon to be suspended, it would be a nice reunion.

Possibilities: Denver
