Today is the 2009 NFL Trade Deadline and players like Cleveland Browns WR/KR Josh Cribbs are rumored to be on the trading block

Today, Tuesday October 20th is the 2009 NFL Trade Deadline.  And for the first time in a while, there is some “buzz” around the date.  Already the NFL saw the trades involving former Browns receiver Braylon Edwards to the New York Jets for picks and former Bucs D-lineman Gaines Adams to the Chicago Bears for a 2010 2nd rd pick. 

Some of the rumored players to being on the trading block include Bills WR Terrell Owens, Eagles WR Kevin Curtis, Titans QB Vince Young, Houston Texans CB Dunta Robinson, Chiefs DT Glenn Dorsey, Browns QB Brady Quinn, Browns WR/KR Josh Cribbs and Chargers LB Shawn Merriman. 

However I never hold my breath around the trade deadline, as most trades in the NFL occur on draft day.  If any trades do happen at the 2009 NFL Trade Deadline, expect them to be something like the 2005 deal that sent former Niners QB Tim Rattay to the Tampa Bay Bucs for a future 6th rd pick .
