NFL Trade Rumors: What's the Latest Buzz from Around the Web?
By most accounts, a decision on the NFL's request for a stay should come by Thursday (how the NFL can say with a straight face they want football in 2011 is beyond me, but that's neither here nor there).
If the lockout is lifted, free agency and the ability to trade players should be reinstated relatively quickly, and once it does a flurry of transactions could be made.
Two quarterbacks headline the group of players who have been rumored to be on the trading block: Kevin Kolb and Carson Palmer.
I'll aggregate news from around the web, sifting through rumors on Kolb, Palmer and other big names who could get dealt as soon as next week.

When Matt Hasselbeck's contract expired at the end of last season, his decade-long career in Seattle likely came to a close.
Charlie Whitehurst, who the Seahawks brought in at the beginning of 2010, showed some signs of effectiveness in the Seahawks' week 17 win over the Rams, but the team hasn't made it clear that he's the longterm option at QB.
So, which arms on the market make most sense for the Seahawks? Michael Simeona of mynorthwest.com offers this tidbit from Mike Salk of 710 ESPN:
(Palmer) used to play for Pete Carroll," Salk said to Larry Rice on Saturday's MyNorthwest Weekend. "He won a Heisman, (they) won a championship together at USC. Matt Hasselbeck wasn't signed by the time they hit that deadline before the lockout.
"Could everything come together? I think you can present a pretty clear scenario where it actually does come together."
Once the Seahawks passed on making a move for Jake Locker, Ryan Mallett, Andy Dalton, or Colin Kaepernik in last weekend's draft, this scenario became ever more likely.
Having a veteran like Palmer, who is already familiar with Carroll's system, would be the ideal placeholder for the job until the Seahawks can land a QB of the future through the draft.
