Excellent Article on the NFL Trade Deadline

Usually, we take part in the speculation station. But why reinvent the wheel when ProFootballTalk and SportingNews's Mike Florio does it for us? We'll just refine the wheel.

Check out this article on five trades that may happen before Tuesday's NFL trade deadline.

I could see DeAngelo Hall, Damon Huard and Chad Pennington being traded [to the Seahawks Panthers and Vikings, respectively], but imagine that Pennington's contract would have to be shredded. Would the Falcons offload Hall for less than a first-round pick?

Additionally, Tatum Bell could be dealt, but I do not expect the Lions to do the Packers or Buccaneers any favors, because they will be in direct competition for a playoff spot. Also, the recent fight in Minnesota calls into question whether Chester Taylor is on the trading block.
