Come draft day I fully expect Bradford to go #1 overall (I've been saying that for months now). But with the recent flurry of teams trying to get QB's I think Detroit's wish to trade back may come true. Looking at potential suitors I see Washington, Cleveland, Seattle, and Buffalo all in the mix. Without any trades I can see him landing in Washington easily, but I think this will start to get crazy.
Considering Carroll has been looking for a new guy: During a Tuesday appearance with Mike Missanelli of 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly, ESPN's Sal Paolantonio dropped a couple of bombs regarding the current quarterback situation in Philly.
Paolantonio said that the Seattle Seahawks have been contacting the Eagles "non-stop" regarding quarterbacks Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb. As we reported last week, the Eagles have been hearing from multiple teams regarding McNabb, but the Eagles have not yet entertained any offers.
But offers apparently will come; Paolantonio says that Seattle coach Pete Carroll wants to win right away, and in Carroll's mind that includes getting McNabb or Kolb. And Paolantonio says that he now firmly believes that McNabb will be traded by the Eagles at some point in the offseason.
Considering Holmgren is cleaning house: Derek Anderon's rollercoaster career in Cleveland has come to its logical conclusion.
The Browns released Anderson Tuesday, well aware that no one wanted him via trade with a monster roster bonus due in ten days.
The Oregon State product was picked off the waiver wire in one of former G.M. Phil Savage's best moves, and made the Pro Bowl in 2007 on the strength of vertical passing and an easy schedule.
Things fell apart dramatically since, as Anderson's accuracy and decision-making were among the league's worst the last two years.
With all that out of the way, Anderson now becomes the best free agent quarterback available. (This was a market in which four teams showed interest in David Carr.)
We're just speculating, but Arizona, Carolina, and Oakland are three places that would make logical suitors.
One day after the Cleveland Browns released quarterback Derek Anderson, there is mounting evidence around the league that quarterback Brady Quinn could be next.
Cleveland has offered Quinn to other teams, league sources said Wednesday. Not only are the Browns looking into a deal for Quinn, but they also are investigating other quarterback options as well.
The Browns are exploring the acquisition of another quarterback through trade, free agency or the draft, according to multiple league sources. These talks come at a time when Cleveland already has added former Seattle backup Seneca Wallace.
Should one of these scenarios for another quarterback work out as expected, then Cleveland would have a surplus of quarterbacks, including Wallace and Brett Ratliff. That would leave little room for Quinn, a former first-round draft pick who has struggled to succeed in Cleveland.
With Tampa firmly in place to land one of the top DT's I don't see them wanting to trade back. Because Detroit has expressed interest to move back and is sitting at a place where a team could block Washington.....I think a trade happens with either Sea or Cle on draft day.
Looking at the trade possibilities...
Detroit at #2-2600
Seattle at #6-1600 and #14-1100
Cleveland at #7-1500
