NFL Trade Rumors: Latest News on Carson Palmer and Other Big Names
When it comes to trades, the NFL is not like the NBA.
A single NBA trade can shake up a roster and completely revive a team that was hopeless before making the move.
Not so much for the NFL. Most trades, especially ones taking place during the season, are made for roster depth not starter talent.
However, there are a few major playmakers still available, including the Cincinnati Bengals Carson Palmer.
Here's where these top level players could move in the next few weeks.
All eyes were on Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer when he threatened to retire if he wasn't traded by team owner Mike Brown.
Brown has not budged and Palmer has stayed at home.
Where did we last see him? Cincinnati Bengals.
Where will he be? On his couch. Or the kitchen. Either way, he's at home.
With the Tennessee Titans running game sputtering, the team has looked to supplant star back Chris Johnson with veteran Clinton Portis.
The team brought him in for a workout, and NFL reporter Jason La Canfora said the team could sign him in the next week.
It would be a return to pro football for Portis, who hasn't played since being cut by the Washington Redskins over the offseason.
Where did we last see him? Washington Redskins.
Where will he be? Tennessee Titans.
One of the teams that may be interested in putting in an offer is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The young Bucs have a lack of depth at the linebacker position, and the boost Briggs could bring would be important considering the offensive talent around the rest of the NFC South.
Don't get too excited, Bucs fans. ESPN's Kevin Seifert argued the Bears are still expecting Briggs to finish out this season in the Windy City.
Where did we last see him? Chicago Bears.
Where will he be? Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora was seemingly on the way out after the Giants refused to offer him a new contract.
With the Giants not offering a new deal, and the Giants' trade demands too high, it appears he is not going anywhere.
Reports have Umenyiora possibly making his season debut Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Where did we last see him? New York Giants.
Where will he be? New York Giants.
The Indianapolis Colts offense has been nothing less than anemic with the loss of quarterback Peyton Manning. Replacement Kerry Collins hasn't been the solution either.
While former Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback David Garrard isn't exactly a top-level starter, he is plenty experienced. With his $8 million per year salary not in play, he could be scooped up at a pretty reasonable price.
Where did we last see him? Jacksonville Jaguars.
Where will he be? Indianapolis Colts.
