NFL Trade Rumors: All 32 Teams' Ideal Trade Scenarios

    Although times are rough right now in the NFL with the current labor situation, that should not stop us from speculating about what teams could do in free agency.

    The lockout will end eventually and when it does, the flood gates will open up and teams will be cutting, signing, and trading everyone in sight.

    Here is a trade scenario for each NFL team that i think would help the team either this year or in the future.

Pittsburgh Steelers

    Trade QB Dennis Dixon

    Some would say that the Steelers desperately need to find a number one corner to either replace, or have opposite of Ike Taylor.

    I think the Steelers will ultimately re-sign Ike whenever the labor situation is settled and I also have faith in their young corners.

    Dennis Dixon did not blow anyone away in his first 2 starts last season before ending up on injured reserve however, he is still young and still has a ton of potential.

    If the Steelers could convince a team to give up a third round pick, that would help Pittsburgh continue to stockpile good young players.

    Possible trade partners: Oakland Raiders, Seattle Seahawks, Washington Redskins

Baltimore Ravens

    Trade for RB Brandon Jacobs

    The Baltimore Ravens could possibly lose Le’Ron McClain to free agency and they could elect to cut Willis McGahee.

    The Ravens love to play smash mouth football and Brandon Jacobs would be able to provide that big power back for the team.

    Although Ray Rice is quickly becoming one of the best running backs in the league, his 5-8, 212 pounds is dwarfed by Jacobs’ 6-4, 264 pounds.

    Rice ended up with only 5 rushing touchdowns in 2010 compared to Jacobs’ 9 touchdowns as a backup.

    The Ravens could send either a 3rd or 4th round pick to the Giants for RB Brandon Jacobs.

Cleveland Browns

    Trade for WR Larry Fitzgerald

    The Cleveland Browns seem to have taken the right steps towards building a competitive team however, they still lack that true number one receiver.

    Larry Fitzgerald would be able to tutor the Browns’ young receivers such as Greg Little, Carlton Mitchell, Brian Robiskie, and Mohamed Massaquoi.

    Josh Cribbs would not have to do 0absolutely everything for the Browns anymore, which would let him focus on returns.

    With this trade the Browns offense would include quarterback Colt McCoy, running back Peyton Hillis, and then wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

    The Browns would trade their first round pick in 2011 and OT Tony Pashos to the Cardinals.

Cincinnati Bengals

    Trade QB Carson Palmer for QB Donovan McNabb

    Carson Palmer has made it clear that he wants out and the Bengals owner should trade him while he’s still worth something.

    The Bengals drafted their quarterback of the future in Andy Dalton however, it would be best if they could let him sit before starting as a rookie.

    Mike Shanahan has made it clear what he thinks of Donovan McNabb and although I think he is stubborn enough to start the season with Rex Grossman, Palmer would be a good fit here.

    This would give both quarterbacks the change of scenery they both need and give the teams they are traded to exactly what they want.

    The Bengals need a stop gap to Andy Dalton and the Redskins need anyone not named Rex Grossman.

Dallas Cowboys

    Trade RB Marion Barber

    Marion Barber is in the last year of his contract and could possibly be cut by the Cowboys if they cannot find a trade partner.

    Although Barber has been injured and not as effective as he was a few years ago, he could still help a team that needs a short yardage back.

    The Cowboys are going to give Felix Jones every opportunity to take the starting running back job and they also have Tashard Choice as a solid backup, as well as rookie DeMarco Murray.

    A team like the Denver Broncos, who's leading rushing touchdown guy was Tim Tebow, could use a guy like Barber in the redzone.

    At this point the Cowboys could probably get a 4th-5th round pick back for Barber who has had seasons with both 14 and 10 rushing touchdowns in his career.

Philadelphia Eagles

    Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images

    Trade QB Kevin Kolb

    We all know about the comeback story of Mike Vick in Philadelphia however, this has left Kevin Kolb in a limbo situation.

    Most assume that Kolb will be a good starting quarterback and is one of the top guys out there available at the position this offseason.

    The Eagles lost out on getting good compensation for Kolb before the draft but i still see them being able to get something good in return.

    The Arizona Cardinals need a quarterback and should be the favorite at this point to land Kolb whenever teams are able to trade players.

    The Eagles would trade QB Kevin Kolb and their 4th round pick to Arizona for the Cardinals' 1st and 3rd round picks.

New York Giants

8 of 33

    EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - DECEMBER 05:  Justin Tuck #91 of the New York Giants sacks Donovan McNabb #5 of the Washington Redskins who fumbles and loses the ball during their game on December 5, 2010 at The New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jerse

    Trade DE Justin Tuck

    This might seem like a bad idea considering Tuck recorded 11.5 sacks in 2010, however, they still the veteran Osi Umenyiora on one side and they could bring back Mathias Kiwanuka on the other side.

    They also have last year's first round pick, Jason Pierre-Paul, who looked good as a rookie contributing 4.5 sacks as a back up in 2010.

    Justin Tuck is still relatively young and productive which will allow the team to get better compensation back then for say, the older Umenyiora.

    A good trade partner for the Giants could be the Minnesota Vikings, who could lose Ray Edwards to free agency and need someone opposite of Jared Allen.

    The Giants would trade DE Justin Tuck to the Vikings for a 2nd round pick.

Washington Redskins

    Larry French/Getty Images

    Trade QB Donovan McNabb

    I went back and forth between having McNabb and Albert Hayensworth here before deciding to go with McNabb, however, both will probably be gone somehow.

    After suspending him I don't think any team would give them much if any compensation, although you could argue the same with McNabb.

    The difference is there are a number of teams that need a veteran quarterback and McNabb still has the ability to come in and start for many teams in the NFL.

    I like the scenario that I have in the earlier Bengals' slide where the Bengals and Redskins would simply swap Carson Palmer and Donovan McNabb.

    Given the possibility the Bengals keep Palmer however, the Redskins could find a suitable trade partner in the San Francisco 49ers.

    The Redskins would trade QB Donovan McNabb to the 49ers for QB Alex Smith and a 5th round pick.

Houston Texans

    Thearon W, Henderson/Getty Images

    Trade RB Steve Slaton

    Steve Slaton was once considered one of the steals of the 2008 draft after putting up over 1200 yards and 9 touchdowns in his rookie year.

    2 years later the Texans now have the reigning rushing champ, Arians Foster, and Slaton has been pretty much completely phased out of the offense.

    Then consider that the Texans still have last year's rookie Ben Tate who was thought to compete for the starting job before being lost for the season due to injury.

    The St. Louis Rams have one of the best running backs in the league in Steven Jackson, however, they have little if anything behind him and could use a decent back up.

    The Texans trade RB Steve Slaton to the Rams for a 3rd round pick.

Jacksonville Jaguars

    Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images

    Trade for Donnie Avery

    The Jacksonville Jaguars have a great running game with Maurice Jones-Drew and now their future at quarterback with Blaine Gabbart.

    The only thing their offense really needs is a true number one wide receiver and the Rams’ Donnie Avery has that potential.

    The Rams thought Avery was going to have a breakout year in 2010 before being sidelined with a season ending injury.

    I have a feeling the Rams will go with Mark Clayton, who started 2010 great before being injured for the season himself, and the team also just drafted two good rookies in Austin Pettis and Greg Salas.

    The Jaguars trade DT Terrance Knighton and a 3rd round pick for the Rams WR Donnie Avery and a 6th round pick.

Indianapolis Colts

12 of 33

    CHICAGO - OCTOBER 24: Chris Williams #74 of the Chicago Bears blocks Albert Haynesworth #92 of the Washington Redskins at Soldier Field on October 24, 2010 in Chicago, Illinois. The Redskins defeated the Bears 17-14. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images
    Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

    Trade for DT Albert Haynesworth

    You might think the notion that the Indianapolis Colts need a baby like Albert Haynesworth is completely idiotic, however, just think about it.

    The Colts have 2 of the best pass rushing DEs in Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis and yet the team is always terrible against the run because they have no one in the middle.

    They did just draft DT Drake Nevis although he is just a rookie and would benefit greatly learning from Haynesworth.

    Say what you want about the guy, when he wanted to play, he dominated and could really help that Colts defense.

    The best thing about this trade is the fact that the Redskins have made it clear that they do not want Haynesworth so the Colts would only have to give up maybe a 5th round pick at the most.

Tennessee Titans

13 of 33

    Marc Serota/Getty Images

    Trade QB Vince Young

    The Titans have made it clear that they still intend to part ways with QB Vince Young and drafted Jake Locker with their first round pick in this years’ draft.

    The fact that the team has already made it known they don’t want Young will hurt the compensation they receive, however, they could still end up with something decent.

    The Minnesota Vikings just drafted their quarterback of the future in Christian Ponder however, it would be better if they had a guy he could learn from for a year.

    Vince Young could come in and showcase what he has for a season with the Vikings while letting Ponder not have to be thrown out there his rookie year.

    The Titans trade QB Vince Young and a 4th round pick to the Vikings for WR Bernard Berrian and a 6th round pick.

Arizona Cardinals

    Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images

    Trade for QB Kevin Kolb

    The Arizona Cardinals did not get one of the top quarterbacks in the draft and now need to focus on getting a veteran somehow.

    The best available guy out there is Kevin Kolb of the Eagles, who is still young and has shown the potential to be a good starting quarterback.

    Getting Kolb could help the Cardinals with being able to keep Larry Fitzgerald since he has stressed his desire for the team to acquire a good starting QB.

    I know this is the same scenario I had for the Eagles however, I just think that this trade would be beneficial for both teams.

    The Cardinals trade their 1st and 3rd round picks for the Eagles QB Kevin Kolb and their 4th round pick.

San Francisco 49ers

    Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

    Trade RB Frank Gore

    This has nothing to do with whether or not I think Frank Gore is declining because I actually think he still has a few good years left in him.

    This is more about the 49ers having solid replacements in Anthony Dixon and rookie Kendall Hunter behind him.

    They could capitalize on Frank Gore still being young enough to be a team's starting running back so that they get good compensation.

    A team i could see being interested would be the Oakland Raiders who could lose Michael Bush to free agency which would leave them with basically just Darren McFadden.

    The 49ers trade RB Frank Gore to the Oakland Raiders for a 2nd round pick. 

St. Louis Rams

16 of 33

    Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

    Trade for DT John Henderson

    The Rams have good defensive ends in James Hall and Chris Long and they just added Robert Quinn in the first round.

    The problem is that they have virtually nothing in the middle and need someone to help stop the run.

    The Rams probably will not have to give up anything huge for Henderson to the Raiders either since Oakland already has Tommy Kelly and could switch Lamar Houston to DT.

    The Rams trade a 4th round pick to the Oakland Raiders for DT John Henderson.

Carolina Panthers

    Streeter Lecka/Getty Images

    Trade WR Steve Smith

    Steve Smith has been a good receiver for a long time for the Panthers and I think they will finally give him a change of scenery.

    They could trade with the Vikings and get back veteran receiver Bernard Berrian, and also a veteran corner in Lito Sheppard.

    Both Sheppard and Berrian have become expendable in Minnesota although I think they would still welcome a veteran receiver ahead of Percy Harvin.

    The Panthers trade WR Steve Smith and a 6th round pick to the Vikings for WR Bernard Berrian and CB Lito Sheppard.

Chicago Bears

18 of 33

    GLENDALE, AZ - JANUARY 10:  Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald #11 of the Arizona Cardinals runs for a touchdown in the third quarter of the 2010 NFC wild-card playoff game against the Green Bay Packers at University of Phoenix Stadium on January 10, 2010 in
    Jeff Gross/Getty Images

    Trade for WR Larry Fitzgerald

    The Chicago Bears do not have a number one receiver in my opinion and just have 3 or 4 number two guys.

    Pretty much all of them are the speed burner type and they need a receiver who is going to go over the middle and leap over people.

    If the Bears could get Larry Fitzgerald their offense could be unstoppable with Jay Cutler's arm, Matt Forte's rushing skills, and Devon Hester's speed.

    The Bears trade their 1st, 3rd and 6th round picks to the Cardinals for WR Larry Fitzgerald and a 6th round pick.

Green Bay Packers

    ATLANTA, GA - JANUARY 15:  Matt Flynn #10 of the Green Bay Packers losens up on the sideline against the Atlanta Falcons during their 2011 NFC divisional playoff game at Georgia Dome on January 15, 2011 in Atlanta, Georgia.  (Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty
    Chris Graythen/Getty Images

    Trade QB Matt Flynn

    This is a great year to be a team with a solid backup quarterback because there are numerous other teams who need a QB.

    The Packers would be smart to trade Matt Flynn while his stock is high although i do not think they will get the same compensation say for Kevin Kolb.

    Although Aaron Rodgers has been hurt before, i think the Packers are safe to trade away Flynn and could get as high as a 2nd round pick.

    The Packers trade QB Matt Flynn to the Miami Dolphins for a 2nd round pick.

Detroit Lions

    GREEN BAY, WI - OCTOBER 03: Gosder Cherilus #77 of the Detroit Lions awaits the start of play against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on October 3, 2010 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers defeated the Lions 28-26. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty
    Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

    Trade OT Gosder Cherilus

    The Lions are in the rare position that they really do not need to add much to their team because of all the young talent they have accumulated.

    Their offense should be fine as long as Matthew Stafford stays healthy and their defense could be great with that defensive line.

    The only thing I could see them upgrading is the cornerback position however I do not think they need to go out and get someone expensive.

    The Lions trade OT Gosder Cherilus to the Vikings for CB Cedric Griffen.

Minnesota Vikings

21 of 33

    LANDOVER, MD - DECEMBER 12:  Donovan McNabb #5 of the Washington Redskins passes against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers  at FedExField on December 12, 2010 in Landover, Maryland. The Buccaneers defeated the Redskins 17-16. (Photo by Larry French/Getty Images)
    Larry French/Getty Images

    Trade for QB Donovan McNabb

    The Vikings already have maybe the best running back in the NFL in Adrian Peterson and now they have the future at quarterback in Christian Ponder.

    If they could land a veteran quarterback like McNabb for Ponder to learn behind for a year that would be great for the future of the team.

    McNabb had a bad season in Washington but i still see him as a quality starting quarterback in this league and the Vikings could get him cheap from the Redskins.

    The Vikings trade a 4th or 5th round pick to the Redskins for QB Donovan McNabb.

Atlanta Falcons

22 of 33

    Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

    Trade DE Jamaal Anderson

    The Atlanta Falcons risked a lot by trading up for Julio Jones although that is them pretty much saying they think their offense is set for the season.

    So I say it is time to add to their defense by subtracting a player who has been a complete bust for the team.

    Jamaal Anderson was taken in the first round by the Falcons in 2007 and has not lived up to any expectations at all.

    The Falcons trade Jamaal Anderson to the Vikings for a 4th round pick.

New Orleans Saints

23 of 33

    SAN FRANCISCO - SEPTEMBER 20:  Reggie Bush #25 of the New Orleans Saints in action during their game against the San Francisco 49ers at Candlestick Park on September 20, 2010 in San Francisco, California.  (Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)
    Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

    Trade RB Reggie Bush

    Reggie Bush was supposed to change the Saints franchise and although his career has not been a complete bust, it has not been what the team expected.

    With the team drafting Mark Ingram in the first round this year, it is clear the Reggie's time in New Orleans is coming to an end.

    I think the Saints can find a team who is willing to give up more than you'd think for a guy who can add excitement and an extra dimension to their offense and special teams.

    The Saints trade RB Reggie Bush to the Packers for a 2nd round pick.

Seattle Seahawks

    Jim Rogash/Getty Images

    Trade for QB Matt Flynn

    The Seahawks were another team thought to have wanted a quarterback in this year's draft and failed to grab one.

    The team will probably lose Matt Hasselbeck to free agency and they could either start Flynn right away or have him sit behind Charlie Whitehurst for a year to learn the system.

    Either way the Seahawks could get the young quarterback they want and yet be ahead of the game since he has been sitting behind Aaron Rodgers for 4 years.

    The Seahawks trade a 2nd round pick to the Packers for QB Matt Flynn.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Trade for Reggie Bush

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a pretty good team and do not have many holes that they have not already filled with a good young player.

    LeGarrette Blount turned out to be a steal as an undrafted rookie signing last season however, the Buccaneers will probably lose Cadillac Williams in free agency.

    The team needs a compliment to Blount and Reggie Bush would add speed and excitement to the Buccaneers offense.

    The Buccaneers trade a 2nd round pick to the Saints for Reggie Bush.

Denver Broncos

    Christian Petersen/Getty Images

    Trade QB Kyle Orton

    I know that some aren't sold on whether or not Tim Tebow is ready to be the starting quarterback in Denver, however, I think it's time to give him the team.

    Tebow did not do that bad in his rookie year and is the type of player in my opinion that would benefit from playing rather than sitting.

    The Broncos could get at least a 2nd round pick  for Orton given how well he's played in Denver and the amount of teams that need a quarterback.

    The Broncos trade QB Kyle Orton to the Cincinnati Bengals for a 2nd round pick.

Kansas City Chiefs

    Jim McIsaac/Getty Images

    Trade for OT Charlie Johnson

    The Chiefs are another good team that does not have many holes to fill although I think they could use an upgrade on the offensive line.

    Charlie Johnson has been much maligned with the Colts however, he would not have to play left tackle for the Chiefs and would give them depth since he does have experience on that side of the line.

    The Colts just drafted their left tackle of the future in Anthony Castonzo and their 2nd round pick Benjamin Ijalana could be their right tackle or kick into guard.

    The Chiefs trade a 3rd round pick to the Colts for OT Charlie Johnson.

San Diego Chargers

    Justin Edmonds/Getty Images

    Trade WR Malcom Floyd

    I was tempted to just say they should trade Vincent Jackson, however, I think that would be hurting the team and not helping them.

    Malcom Floyd may not be Vincent Jackson but he is a big receiver who could be a nice redzone threat for a team like the Vikings.

    The Vikings could trade Bernard Berrian and lose Sydney Rice to free agency which would leave them with basically Percy Harvin.

    The Chargers trade WR Malcom Floyd to the Vikings for a 4th round pick.

Oakland Raiders

    Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

    Trade QB Bruce Gradkowski

    The Raiders need to stop playing musical quarterback and just pick a guy already.

    They signed Jason Campbell last year and I think they should stick with him and trade Gradkowski in this offseason when everyone needs a quarterback.

    A team like the Miami Dolphins or even the Tennessee Titans would be interested in a veteran like Gradkowski.

    The Raiders trade QB Bruce Gradkowski to the Titans for a 3rd round pick.

New York Jets

    Stephen Dunn/Getty Images

    Trade for LB Shawne Merriman

    If Rex Ryan wants to believe that telling everyone he's going to win the Super Bowl every year is going to actually make that happen then that's his prerogative.

    He needs to probably make sure that he keeps some key players on offense this offseason and somehow find another pass rusher.

    Even though Shawne Merriman has been a shell of his former self lately, I think Rex Ryan could coach him up and get something out of him.

    The Jets trade a 3rd round pick to the Bills for LB Shawne Merriman.

Miami Dolphins

    DENVER - JANUARY 02:  Running back Ryan Mathews #24 of the San Diego Chargers eludes linebacker Robert Ayers #56 of the Denver Broncos as he rushes for a 31 yard touchdown on fourth down and one yard to go in the fourth quarter at INVESCO Field at Mile Hi

    Trade for LB Robert Ayers

    Robert Ayers has done nothing in his time in Denver and is close to being considered huge bust as a player.

    The Dolphins need a pass rusher to pair with Cameron Wake, and although Ayers hasn't shown much, maybe changing teams will light a fire under him.

    Ayers still has the potential to become a good pass rusher in this league. I think a successful trade just depends on how much the Broncos ask in return for him.

    The Dolphins trade a 4th round pick to the Broncos for LB Robert Ayers.

New England Patriots

    Elsa/Getty Images

    Trade QB Brian Hoyer

    The Patriots drafted Ryan Mallet in the 3rd round of this year's draft with the intention of him becoming the backup to Tom Brady.

    As I've mentioned a million times before in this article, this offseason there is going to be a huge demand for quarterbacks and now would be the time to trade one if you've got one.

    Hoyer has not been given the opportunity to show much as a Patriot but a team could see him as a future starter someday.

    The Patriots trade QB Brian Hoyer to the Washington Redskins for a 3rd round pick.

Buffalo Bills

    Brad White/Getty Images

    Trade DE Aaron Maybin

    Maybe it is too early to officially declare Aaron Maybin a bust although i think it's pretty close to being that time.

    The Bills just had a great 2011 draft and it could be time to start trying to forget about mistakes made in previous drafts.

    A team could still see some potential in Maybin as a pass rusher and the Bills would be able to move forward.

    The Bills trade DE Aaron Maybin to the Vikings for a 4th round pick.
