NFL Notes: Trades, Buccaneers, Cardinals & Dolphins


Mike Sando of ESPN (Insider) offers up some trades he would like to see completed ahead of tomorrow’s deadline. Some of the more notable trades proposed by Sando include:

  • Seahawks trading a second-round pick for Browns LT Joe Thomas.
  • Packers trading a fifth-round pick for 49ers WR Torrey Smith.
  • One of the Browns, Titans or Eagles trading a third-round pick to the Bears for WR Alshon Jeffery.
  • Chargers trading a late-round pick fo the Browns for WR Andrew Hawkins.
  • Raiders trading a third-round pick to the Ravens for DT Brandon Williams.


Buccaneers HC Dirk Koetter indicated that RB Jacquizz Rodgers could be dealing with a serious ankle injury.

“I don’t think it’s probably good,” Koetter said, via the Tampa Bay Times. “But I don’t know for sure. It’s something to do with his ankle.”

The problem for the Bucs is that they have a game on Thursday against the Falcons, which means they may have to turn to rookie Peyton Barber and Antone Smith this week.


Cardinals GM Steve Keim mentioned during his appearance on the “Doug and Wolf” show on Arizona Sports 98.7 that a few roster changes could be coming following the injury to LT Jared Veldheer.

I would say there will be a few,” Keim said, via AzCardinals.com. “We’ll take a look at some different players. There should be a change or two.”

  • Ian Rapoport reports that S Tyrann Mathieu suffered a shoulder subluxation during Sunday’s game and is undergoing tests on Monday.
  • Although, Rapoport mentions that with the Cardinals on bye this week, Mathieu may not miss time.


  • Dolphins DE Dion Jordan tells Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald that his second knee injury resulted from “trying to too hard to come back too soon.”
  • Jordan is still certain he’ll play at some point this season, but he has no idea of when that will be.
  • Dolphins DC Vance Joseph said that linebacker is no longer an option for Jordan at his current weight, so he would have to play defensive end of them.
