2011 NFL Trade Deadline by Lloyd Vance

Today is the 2011 NFL Trade Deadline and some players, like Cowboys RB Tashard Choice, are rumored to be on the trading block

Today, Tuesday October 18th @ 4 PM EST is the 2011 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 Broncos receiver Brandon Lloyd to the St. Louis Rams for a sixth-round pick that could become a fifth-round pick , former New York Jets WR Derrick Mason to the Tennessee Titans for a 7th rd pick,  and former Seahawks LB Aaron Curry going to the Oakland Raiders for a picks. 

Some of the rumored players that are said to be on the trading block include:

Dallas Cowboys RB Tashard Choice

KC Chiefs DT Glenn Dorsey

Chicago Bears safety Cliff Harris

Denver Broncos QB Kyle Orton

Cincinnati Bengals QB Carson Palmer

Denver Broncos QB Brady Quinn

Philadelphia Eagles CB Asante Samuel

Philadelphia Eagles QB Vince Young

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 2011 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 .
