NFL Trade Scenarios: The Big-Name Player Each NFL Team Is Most Likely to Trade

The NFL preseason kicked off last night with tons of exciting NFL action. One of the main parts of every teams' preseason agenda is to determine who fits where on the depth chart.

Sometimes there are good players who don't get playing time because they are behind a better player, and sometimes there are good players who don't get playing time because they are behind a player whose name is bigger than his ability.

In both cases, the backup with talent needs more field-time. Productive players should play, not rot away on the bench.

That scenario gives the team a decision: trade the star, trade the backup, or let the backup sit unused for another season.

Another situation that can result in a trade is when a great player is on a horrific team and he doesn't fit into that teams' future plans. Imagine a highly-paid veteran on a perennial loser. It might be more effective to ship off the superstar while he still has value in order to accumulate high draft picks and/or young talent.

With all of this in mind, let's take a look at all 32 NFL teams and try and decipher the biggest name player each team could trade.
