NFL Trade Deadline Roundup

  • The big news for us, of course, is that Tony Gonzalez is still in Kansas City. The asking price was apparently set at a 2nd and 5th round pick for the 32 year old tight end.
  • Jerry Jones did what he does best and created a splash by acquiring WR Roy Williams from the Lions for a 1st, 3rd and 6th round pick. The two sides have set the parameters of a contract extension believed to be in the 5-year range (and presumably valued in the neighborhood of Larry Fitzgerald's $10 million per year deal). An interesting twist to this story (of course there's a twist, it's the Cowboys), if Pacman Jones hadn't been suspended minutes before the Cowboys made their deal, it would have been voided because his suspension means the Cowboys will not have to send the Titans a 6th round pick instead Tennessee will send the Cowboys a 5th (as stipulated in the trade if Pacman was suspended again when it went down).
  • The Indianapolis Colts acquired a defensive tackle in John McCargo who was a first round pick just three years ago (and the Bills even traded back into the 1st round to nab him).
  • Per the other AP, the Washington Redskins signed Shaun Alexander to a contract.
