Now that the final 53-man rosters have been identified for the 32 teams, there are now a total of 1,696 NFL players that can say that they are part of the league. Out of that vast group, the majority will have some amount of trade value, whether it is for a draft pick(s) or for other players in return. Then we come to a segment of NFL players that just don't have any trade value whatsoever.
These are the players that no other teams would realistically want to trade for. Maybe they have a bad attitude, they aren't very talented, or they have trouble with authority figures. Maybe they are getting in trouble with the law, again and again. Maybe they just can't stay in shape to save their live.
Before we begin this presentation, we have to take a second to remind our readers that the 2011 free-agency period was an insane time frame. With so many players suddenly being granted free-agency status, players were allowed to sign with whatever team they wanted to.
No doubt there were prior owners that would have preferred the opportunity to trade them away for something of value. Sign-and-trade deals, which is something that happened in the past, was not part of the 2011 NFL landscape.
There are plenty of reasons why a player is deemed untradeable, and we will take a look around the league to highlight 14 players who we feel match this description. If you are aware of others who you feel should be included, feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section.
