    My favorite moves have been the low risk, high reward trades -- even when they don't work out, the excitement of the potential with almost no downside makes them well worth it.

    Moss
    Welker (not the same as the others, but still a great realization that he's well worth the 2nd)
    Ocho
    Fat Al
    Talib
    (I'm sure I'm missing a few)

    Or the very good vet that wants to be on a winner:
    Rodney
    Corey


    Any thoughts as to players who might fit the mold this year?

    Vet looking to win, or trade...

    Steven Jackson (regardless of the young guns we have, if this guy is willing to come on a 1 or 2 year contract on average RB numbers you do this)

    Darrell Revis and Larry Fitzgerald :rolleyes:

    But seriously I'd look for some disgruntled corners if we can't resign Talib

    The NFL should make some changes to make it easier for teams to
    do player for player trades.

    It seems as though any trade you see is a player for a pick.

    Imagine how much fun the trade deadline would be if there were mega
    deals completed before the deadline.

    Think baseball trade deadline.... Imagine that in the NFL.....

    It's not completely "low risk" because he'll want to get paid, but there are some indications that Percy Harvin will hold out if the Vikings don't give him a big contract this offseason. If that does end up being the case, then I think he'd be a bargain as far as trade value, if the Pats are willing to give him a long term contract.

    Tim Tebow..... if it wasn't for the circus that comes with him I could actually see this. Just not as a QB.

    Percy Harvin is probably on his way out of Minnesota. There are some major health issues. Concussion. And, he's a free agent after the 2013 season. But, if we let White Wes go. He could be an option and a draft pick too.

    The NFL needs to let the remaining cap hit of the signing bonus of a traded player transfer to the team receiving him. I bet that would increase the number of trades

    Apparently Eagles fans really dislike Jeremy Maclin and think he might be up for trade. He's 6' and runs a 4.43. He's been injured quite a bit, but only missed five games in four years. Averaging right around 850 yards per season. Eagles fans think a third-fourth for him would be good.

    We have zero need for a RB. Especially not an old one who lost a step.

    Sounds like a situation where he's not a likely candidate for a second contract with the Eagles, so they're better off getting something than nothing.

    Why would you do this? Steven Jackson is an aging RB with sagging numbers and we already have a #1 RB in Stevan Ridley who just posted 1,200+ yards rushing.
