NFL Trade Speculation: 5 Trades That Will Absolutely Happen

Will Kolb be the first player traded?

We’re waiting….Hello, owners and players, we’re still waiting.

Someone is going to have to step over the line and start giving in here, and at this point, I don’t care which side caves. I am going into free agency, trade and camp depression here.

It’s been nearly 100 days since the lockout, and the season is less than 99 days away. Have we reached the tipping point yet?

OK, so I am playing commissioner here, and I have decided to go ahead and at least allow trading to begin. Just go along with me please.

One big surprise here is that Kevin Kolb will not be traded. Why?

The Eagles' asking price is a good one, but as the lockout drags on, teams will not be as interested in him at the price the Eagles are asking. The Eagles are either going to give in on the asking price, or some team is going to pay way too much for a relatively unproven player.

Also, for a perennial playoff team, Kolb adds a nice insurance supplemental should Michael Vick go down during the season.

Here are five trades that will absolutely take place once the trading season begins.
