Assessing the Trade Value of Each NFL Team's Most Available Player

    Everything in the NFL is in a holding pattern right now due to the ongoing labor negotiations. 

    As the season draws near, the league and the players have jump started their talks. All signs are starting to point towards an agreement sooner rather than later. 

    When the deal is made, teams will kick their roster moves into high gear. They usually have months during the offseason to sure up their depth charts, but this year they’re going to have weeks—at best. 

    There will be less time to negotiate with free agents, and who knows what type of new rules regarding signing them will come out of the lockout. It will be more enticing for your team to fill its needs through trades than in a typical year. 

    Here are the players who are most likely on the trading block for each team and what grade their trade value is worth. 

Arizona Cardinals: Larry Fitzgerald, WR

    Trade Value: A

    Widely considered one of the better people to deal with in pro sports, Larry Fitzgerald is a model citizen and employee for the Arizona Cardinals. 

    Still, there’s a limit to the patience and politeness of any player. 

    The Cardinals have gone in the wrong direction since appearing in Super Bowl XLIII. Fitzgerald is in the prime of his career and truly cares about playing on a team that has a chance to contend on a consistent basis. 

    He’s one of the best receivers in the league. If they trade him, the Cards would get plenty of the draft picks and young players they need to rebuild.

Atlanta Falcons: Jamaal Anderson, DE

    Trade Value: D

    The eighth overall pick in the 2007 draft, Jamaal Anderson has failed to live up to expectations during his four years in Atlanta. 

    Sometimes the best prescription for an underachiever is a change of scenery. 

    In another uniform and with lower expectations, Anderson might be able to reinvent himself.

Baltimore Ravens: Willis McGahee, RB

3 of 32

    Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

    Trade Value: C-

    The Ravens believe that McGahee has seen his better days and want him to take a drastic pay cut heading into the 2011 season. 

    With the two sides having difficulty coming to an agreement, it's starting to look more and more likely that McGahee will be moved rather than face a messy holdout situation. 

    Baltimore would be smart to get what they can for him now while teams still see some miles left in him. The other option, cutting him for the cap space, means they would get nothing.

Buffalo Bills: Roscoe Parrish, WR

    Trade Value: B

    Parrish was a productive slot receiver last year until he was injured in Week 9. 

    He looks to be healthy coming into this season and should be able to continue putting up solid receiving numbers. 

    The demand for wide receivers is high in the league right now. With Parrish heading into free agency after the 2011 season, the Bills should be looking to get what they can for him now.


Carolina Panthers: Steve Smith, WR

    Streeter Lecka/Getty Images

    Trade Value: B-

    Something I’m sure we’ll see again this list, Smith is a skilled wideout whose attitude and off-field issues have created a rift between him and his team. 

    When he was one of the best receivers in the league, the Panthers forced themselves to put up with the headaches that came along with him. Now that his best days are behind him, it looks like the team is ready to move on. 

    Smith still has some football left. He could be a good complimentary receiver for the right team—if he can keep his ego in check.

Chicago Bears: Jay Cutler, QB

6 of 32

    Andy Lyons/Getty Images

    Trade Value: A+

    A polarizing figure during his two seasons in Chicago, Cutler became public enemy number one in the windy city when he pulled a disappearing act in the NFC Championship game last year. 

    Cutler has the arm to be a franchise quarterback, but it’s his toughness that’s the question. And if there’s anything a Chicago quarterback needs to be, it’s tough. 

    The Bears could sell high on Cutler now and get a king’s ransom in return for his services.


Cincinnati Bengals: Chad Ochocinco, WR

    Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

    Trade Value: A-

    Ochocinco, or whatever he’s calling himself today, is a productive receiver who can be a headache for his coaching staff. 

    Despite all his antics off the field, his work ethic and production on it have never been questioned. 

    He could be a great addition to the receiving corps of the right team.


Cleveland Browns: Jake Delhomme, QB

8 of 32

    Matt Sullivan/Getty Images

    Trade Value: D-

    The Browns have already said they want Delhomme to take a pay cut in order to return to their team in 2011. 

    As we’ll see many times during this list, that always starts the trade rumors going. 

    Delhomme’s value is pretty low. He hasn’t played at the level of a starting NFL quarterback for years now, and he is very unlikely to ever return to his previous form. 

    His best quality at this point is his leadership. Considering it won’t cost a team very much to get him, he might be worth bringing in as a backup.


Dallas Cowboys: Roy Williams, WR

9 of 32

    Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

    Trade Value: B

    Another talented but frustrating receiver, Roy Williams has made it clear he thinks he should be the No. 1 option in the Dallas passing game. 

    Too bad its not his choice. Dez Bryant proved in his rookie campaign that he had what it takes to be the top receiver on the team. 

    Williams has some serious skills. The idea that he might one day harness them on a consistent basis will have other teams seeing him as a good trade option.


Denver Broncos: Kyle Orton, QB

    DENVER - NOVEMBER 14:  Quarterback Kyle Orton #8 of the Denver Broncos greets his teammates as they enter the field to face the Kansas City Chiefs at INVESCO Field at Mile High on November 14, 2010 in Denver, Colorado. The Broncos defeated the Chiefs 49-2

    Trade Value: A

    All of Denver is calling for Tim Tebow to be the starting quarterback in 2011, and, more importantly, Orton will be a free agent after the season. It makes a lot of sense for the Broncos to sell high on him while they can. 

    If they trade him now, they’ll get plenty in return for a quarterback who comes with a proven track record of stats and wins.


Detroit Lions: Drew Stanton, QB

11 of 32

    Nick Laham/Getty Images

    Trade Value: C+

    With Matt Stafford as the clear No. 1 QB in Detroit, and Shaun Hill as a capable backup, Drew Stanton has become expendable. 

    Stanton has played respectably when given the chance to get on the field. There are always teams looking to have a better option for their backup signal caller. 

    The Lions are not going to bring back Kevin Smith at running back and should look to swap Stanton for one of the capable ball carriers on this list.


Green Bay Packers: Chad Clifton, OT

12 of 32

    GREEN BAY, WI - SEPTEMBER 13: Chad Clifton #76 of the Green Bay Packers participates in warm-ups before a game against the Chicago Bears on September 13, 2009 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers defeated the Bears 21-15. (Photo by Jonath
    Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

    Trade Value: B

    One of the league’s better left tackles for years, Clifton is still playing at a high level at the age of 34. 

    And that makes now the best time to get rid of him. 

    The Packers have his heir apparent already on the roster in Bryan Bulaga. They could shop Clifton around and get good value.


Houston Texans: Steve Slaton, RB

13 of 32

    Bob Levey/Getty Images

    Trade Value: D

    Slaton’s production has gone down significantly since his rookie year, and he’s quickly looking like a one-hit wonder. 

    The Texans have openly talked about getting rid of Slaton and will be shopping him this preseason. 

    They won’t get much. The only reason I gave him a D and not an F is because he did show some promise that first season.


Indianapolis Colts: Reggie Wayne, WR

14 of 32

    Andy Lyons/Getty Images

    Trade Value: B

    Reggie Wayne has been a favorite target for Peyton Manning for years now. But he’s going to be a free agent after this year, and the Colts won’t want to pay him top dollar to stay in Indianapolis. 

    With a stockpile of good young receivers already on the roster, it's time to get something for Wayne. 

    He still has a couple of good years left, so the Colts will have teams willing to trade for him.


Jacksonville Jaguars: David Garrard, QB

15 of 32

    EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - NOVEMBER 28:  David Garrard #9 of the Jacksonville Jaguars runs with the ball against  the New York Giants during the second Quarter of their game on November 28, 2010 at The New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.  (
    Al Bello/Getty Images

    Trade Value: B+

    Trade rumors began swirling about David Garrard as soon as the Jaguars used their first round pick on rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert. 

    Gabbert is the quarterback of the future, so the Jaguars should trade Garrard while his value is still high. 

    There are several teams looking for a good veteran quarterback this year, and Garrard would be a good fit for them. He’s been capable when on the field and has proved he can lead a team to wins.


Kansas City Chiefs: Brandon Flowers, DB

16 of 32

    Doug Pensinger/Getty Images

    Trade Value: B-

    Trade rumors started circulating around the draft that the Chiefs were open to the idea of trading Flowers. 

    It’s not surprising considering he’s a free agent in 2012, and they have other good young defensive backs on the team. 

    NFL teams have started to stockpile cornerbacks in an attempt to defend against the spread offenses that have become prevalent in the league. A solid young corner like Flowers has good value.


Miami Dolphins: Channing Crowder, LB

17 of 32

    MIAMI - NOVEMBER 09:  Linebacker Channing Crowder #52 of the Miami Dolphins celebrates after making a tackle for a loss against the Seattle Seahawks at Dolphin Stadium on November 9, 2008 in Miami, Florida. The Dolphins defeated the Seahawks 21-19.  (Phot
    Doug Benc/Getty Images

    Trade Value: C

    Better known for the crazy things that he says off the field than for his play on it, Crowder has worn out his welcome in Miami. 

    Despite how frustrating it must be to have him around, Crowder has proven to be a solid player who can make another team better right away. 

    His experience playing in a 3-4 system will be enticing to teams making the transition from the 4-3. 

    You just have to get over the fact he might be certifiably crazy.


Minnesota Vikings: Chad Greenway, OLB

18 of 32

    Jeff Gross/Getty Images

    Trade Value: B

    The Vikings placed the dreaded franchise tag on Greenway for the 2011 season. That usually means they don’t plan on paying him what he can get on the open market when he becomes an unrestricted free agent. 

    The franchise tag keeps him in a Vikings uniform for this year, but if they’re not going to give him a long term deal Minnesota should look to get some value in return. 

    Greenway had a very good year in 2010, putting up 144 tackles. Teams will value his nose for the ball and his toughness.


New England Patriots: Logan Mankins, G

19 of 32

    Nick Laham/Getty Images

    Trade Value: B+

    Quickly becoming one of the better offensive linemen in the game, Logan Mankins is the kind of addition any team would want to make. 

    His contract situation with the Patriots has been going downhill for a couple of years, and at this point it looks like the two sides are never going to see eye to eye on his true value. 

    By trading him now, New England could get some compensation when he leaves—instead of just watching him walk away after they can’t franchise tag him anymore. 

    Mankins wants to be paid as the top guard in the league. His performance has demonstrated that he’s worth top dollar, the Patriots may be able to find the team that’s willing to give him that kind of money.

New Orleans Saints: Reggie Bush, RB

20 of 32

    Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images

    Trade Value: B-

    New Orleans is highly unlikely to bring Bush back in 201—unless he accepts a significant pay cut. 

    If he wasn’t willing to do it for USC, why would be willing to do it for the Saints? 

    Bush has plenty of value on the field. He can return kicks and can even be used as a slot receiver in the passing game. 

    His value drops because whoever trades for him would have to be willing to give him the type of lucrative long term deal he clearly feels he deserves.


New York Giants: Brandon Jacobs, RB

    Larry French/Getty Images

    Trade Value: C

    Brandon Jacobs is a bruising runner who’s proved that he can be a solid addition to any NFL backfield unit. 

    At 6’4” and 264 pounds, Jacobs is one of the biggest ball carriers the league has seen. He can run over you and only sometimes tries to run around you. 

    NFL teams are always looking to stock up on good running backs, but his injury history brings down Jacobs’ value.


New York Jets: LaDainian Tomlinson, RB

22 of 32

    FOXBORO, MA - JANUARY 16:  Running back LaDainian Tomlinson #21 of the New York Jets runs with the ball against the New England Patriots during their 2011 AFC divisional playoff game at Gillette Stadium on January 16, 2011 in Foxboro, Massachusetts.  (Pho
    Elsa/Getty Images

    Trade Value: C+

    This was a tough one because most of the Jets' roster isn’t under contract in 2011. 

    Tomlinson went into 2010 trying to prove he wasn’t washed up. Well, he showed the world that he wasn’t. Not completely, at least. 

    How much more he has left in the tank is yet to be seen, but the savvy veteran can still contribute. 

    Or at least it seems that way—which is why the Jets should get what they can for him now before his hamstring falls apart. 


Oakland Raiders: Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR

23 of 32

    Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

    Trade Value: D-

    Hard to pin down who might be available for the Raiders. Nothing they do makes any real sense. 

    Instead of trying to get something in trade for their best asset, shutdown corner Nnamdi Asomugha, they just cut him. I told you, nothing they do makes sense. 

    Trading Heyward-Bey sounds like something the Raiders would do. Oakland reached in the draft when they took him seventh overall in 2009, and his performance on the field has left a lot to be desired. 

    The Raiders would be smart to cut bait while they can, but they wouldn’t get much in return.


Philadelphia Eages: Kevin Kolb, QB

24 of 32

    Jim McIsaac/Getty Images

    Trade Value: A+

    A quarterback in his prime who’s proven he can lead his team to wins is the rarest thing that will ever be available for trade in the NFL. 

    Kolb has put up good numbers and solid play every time he’s gotten the chance to be under center. 

    The starting job in Philadelphia looked to be his after the Eagles dumped Donovan McNabb, but the stellar play of Michael Vick last season made Kolb an expensive backup to keep. 

    Despite the high price he’ll cost to acquire, the Eagles will have no shortage of trade partners.

    The NFL is a quarterback league, and Kolb has shown he has what it takes to be a starter.


Pittsburgh Steelers: Larry Foote, LB

    Gregory Shamus/Getty Images

    Trade Value: C-

    The nine-year veteran has seen his best days on the football field but still has something left to offer. 

    Foote is the odd man out in the Pittsburgh linebacker rotation for 2011. The team has made it clear that he won’t be competing for a starting spot, so they should see what they could get for him. 

    His championship experience could help a young defense that’s looking to take the next step.


San Diego Chargers: Vincent Jackson, WR

26 of 32

    Donald Miralle/Getty Images

    Trade Value: B+

    Yet another wide receiver whose on-field skills are plentiful, but whose me-first attitude could turn off potential trade partners. 

    Jackson has been productive—when he hasn’t been voluntarily sitting out because he was unsatisfied with his pay grade. 

    At only 28 years old, Jackson should have plenty of good football left in his career. He’s worth a trade if a team can work out an agreeable long term deal.


San Francisco 49ers: Manny Lawson, OLB

27 of 32

    Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images

    Trade Value: C

    With more and more teams switching to a 3-4 system, outside linebackers who fit the scheme are become more valuable every year. 

    The track record of trying to draft them has been spotty at best, so a guy with solid results at the NFL level is a valuable commodity. 

    Lawson hasn’t been stellar in his five years on the 49ers, but he’s been good enough to make another team take a chance on him.


Seattle Seahawks: Marcus Trufant, CB

28 of 32

    Jonathan Ferrey/Getty Images

    Trade Value: D+

    Trufant has plenty of talent. Only 30, he should have a few more good years of NFL service left in his body. 

    The Seahawks would like to get rid of him for draft picks who can help them in their rebuilding process. 

    So why is his value so low? 

    Because he also comes along with a massive salary cap hit to whatever team trades for him. With three years left on a six-year, $50.2 million contract, dealing for him would be an expensive endeavor.


St. Louis Rams: Mardy Gilyard, WR

29 of 32

    FOXBORO, MA - AUGUST 26:  Mardy Gilyard #81 of the St. Louis Rams returns a punt in the second half against the New England Patriots on August 26, 2010 at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts. The Rams defeated the Patriots 36-35.  (Photo by Elsa/Ge
    Elsa/Getty Images

    Trade Value: F

    Rumors swirled a few weeks ago that Gilyard requested a trade from the Rams. His agent quickly came out and said that Gilyard never did any such thing. 

    Whether he requested the trade or not, the Rams would be smart to shop him around. 

    A receiver’s ego can be a problem no matter how good they actually are. Gilyard’s production on the field has earned him no goodwill from the Rams.


Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Aqib Talib, CB

30 of 32

    Jamie Squire/Getty Images

    Trade Value: B

    Talib has tried hard to get himself traded out of Tampa Bay. So hard I’m starting to think he must have money on how quickly he can wear out his welcome. 

    Talib was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon earlier this offseason and is unlikely to be back with the Buccaneers this fall. 

    But as we have seen time after time in the NFL, if his legal troubles don’t keep him off the field, there will always be a team willing to look the other way and give him a roster spot. 

    He had the talent to be taken in the first round of the 2008 draft, and that will be enough to tempt a team to take a chance on him.


Tennessee Titans: Vince Young, QB

31 of 32

    ARLINGTON, TX - OCTOBER 10:  Quarterback Vince Young #10 of the Tennessee Titans on the field against the Dallas Cowboys at Cowboys Stadium on October 10, 2010 in Arlington, Texas.   The Titans won 34-27.  (Photo by Stephen Dunn/Getty Images)
    Stephen Dunn/Getty Images

    Trade Value: C+

    It's tough to grade a quarterback’s value so low. But after owner Bud Adams publicly announced that Young would not be a member of the Titans this year, his negotiating leveraged plummeted. 

    Unless the Titans can get multiple teams to bid against each other for his services, they are unlikely to get much in return for him. 

    His play on the field has been up and down at best, and his behavior off the field has been downright bizarre. 

    It’s highly unlikely that Tennessee will be able to generate enough competition for him create a good value in trade.  

Washington Redskins: Albert Haynesworth, DT

32 of 32

    Trade Value: B-

    His ability to affect a football game on the field makes Albert Haynesworth a tempting target for teams. 

    Too bad they have to deal with him off the field, too. 

    His ridiculous contract, and the fact that he’s made it clear he will only play nice if he’s on a team that runs a 4-3 defensive scheme, make him a no deal for many teams in the league. 

    But if you’re a team that has the cap room, runs the right defense and thinks you can handle him off the field, he can be a dominating addition to your defense.
