I've been reading some interesting tidbits leading up to the trade deadline. Keep in mind that 2010 is uncapped due to the Collective Bargaining Agreement lapsing, so there's plenty of money to be lashed out from clubs wanting instant success. For teams at the, erm, lower end of the spectrum, it's a chance to hold a fire sale.

Cleveland had the right idea, purging Braylon Edwards to stock up on draft picks. They recruited two talented young receivers this year, but have a lot of other voids to address in order for Mangini to make them legit. Apparently they are also willing to deal Shaun Rogers for the right price.

Oakland are prepared to hear offers for anyone, save for "really young talented guys" - the club's words, not mine. If we could shift one or two players and secure a couple more decent draft picks, I'd be more than happy. Then we could fix that dog's breakfast of an O-line and draft a legit middle linebacker so Kirk Morrison can return to his natural position at OLB.

The most interesting trade rumour I've heard about so far has been the Packers apparently wanting to trade Aaron Kampman (his production has been way down as an OLB in the 3-4 formation) in order to secure the disgruntled Julius Peppers. Green Bay need O-linemen the most, but Peppers would be a good acquisition.

There are a few teams with coaches on the brink of getting the boot. Some bold owner might consider making a move for a veteran like Cowher, Shanahan or Holmgren.

I'd say that getting Marshall to re-sign was enough.

ESPN.com had an article asking why the Eagles have Michael Vick when he's hardly been used. There are plenty of teams desperate for a QB, there is a possibility teams are trading hard for him.

Yahoo! Sports have a write-up on who could be making moves before the trade deadline here.

Can say that Richard Seymour isn't likely to go anywhere. Ellis might get shifted to push young talent at defensive end, but Seymour in his current form is more than worthy of being offered a big-ticket contract. Oakland should lock him down to have a leader and anchor on that D-line for the next few seasons.

Today's news as the trade deadline passes:

The Philadelphia Eagles addressed their need for linebacker depth Tuesday by acquiring Will Witherspoon from the St. Louis Rams in exchange for rookie wide receiver Brandon Gibson and a 2010 fifth-round draft pick.

Panthers send 2010 draft pick to Chiefs for veteran DT Tyler

The Carolina Panthers added depth at defensive tackle by acquiring Tank Tyler from the Kansas City Chiefs for a fifth-round pick in the 2010 draft.

There are a few others but no big ones. Philly got a good bargain.
