Blockbuster trades, or even trades in general, involving NFL players aren't all that common in the league as compared to the other major sports. Most of the player movement in the NFL happens thanks to the free agent wire.
That doesn't mean trades don't happen though, and it definitely doesn't mean the potential for a blockbuster trade can't happen. Of course, right now no trades can happen because of the labor situation.
But that hasn't stopped the rumor mill from churning, as quarterbacks like Carson Palmer and Kevin Kolb have been the hot trade names off the offseason other than Roger Goddell and Judge David Doty.
