NFL Trade Rumors: What Are People Saying About Vincent Jackson?

The NFL trade deadline is approaching at 3:00 p.m. (central) this afternoon. There are a lot of folks throwing around trade ideas but nothing substantial is building.

One of the names the Kansas City Chiefs should be interested in is WR Vincent Jackson. No, not for the Chiefs to trade for him but to get him out of the division. He's arguably the best receiver in the AFC West so the Chiefs would like to see him gone.

The Vikings and Rams were viewed as two teams that would be interested in Jackson. The Vikings are now ruled out because they've traded for WR Randy Moss.

But what about the Rams? They lost No. 1 receiver Mark Clayton and appear to have a need. The latest word is that Jackson's price tag and the Chargers asking price is too high.

Where will Vincent Jackson end up?


NFL Trade Rumors: Once Again, Panthers Say Steve Smith Going Nowhere At Deadline

One of the NFL trade rumors I've thought makes a lot of sense is the Kansas City Chiefs, Carolina Panthers and WR Steve Smith. The Panthers are in clear rebuilding mode and Smith is a valuable commodity. The Chiefs appear to be in need of some receiver help so I figured this matched up well.

It's not happening. Just like last week, a Panthers team source has said they're not trading anyone.

"There is nothing going on with us at all," a team source said, "and there won't be anything going on with us."

This would include DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. If there are teams interested in a running back, the Chiefs have two good ones but I can't imagine any scenario in which they'd trade Thomas Jones or Jamaal Charles.


NFL Trade Rumors: Vincent Jackson Still In AFC West As Trade Deadline Nears

WR Vincent Jackson's right are still owned by the San Diego Chargers with just over 24 hours remaining before the NFL trade deadline and the trade rumors will be starting to crop up.

Jackson is an unsigned restricted free agent but thanks to a complicated rule he wasn't allowed to be traded until after Week 6. Now he can be traded up until the Oct. 19 deadline.

So who will be interested in Jackson?

The Vikings won't be since they just traded for WR Randy Moss. The Rams were a team that was interested before the asking price.

The Chiefs? Even if they were, it's highly unlikely GM A.J. Smith would trade Jackson to a division rival.

After a couple of deadline deals have already been completed -- Moss and WR Deion Branch -- it seems unlikely Jackson gets moved.


NFL Trade Rumors: Steve Smith Not Available, Panthers Say

The Carolina Panthers are clearly in the midst of a rebuilding season with a rookie QB and playoff talk long gone.

The Panthers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, are telling teams that WR Steve Smith is not available.

A source familiar with the situation said the Panthers will not trade Smith under any circumstance.

One team that already has called Carolina to inquire about Smith's availability already has been given the same message.

I'm not usually one to throw out crazy trade ideas but Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs makes a ton of sense with their need at receiver.

Apparently he's not available.


NFL Trade Rumors: Raiders Telling Teams Everyone Is Available


The Raiders are telling teams this week that all their players are available for trade before the Oct. 19 NFL trade deadline, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The two that have generated interest in the past, according to Schefter, are LB Thomas Howard and CB Chris Johnson.

The Raiders did the same thing last year telling teams that all their players were available but they didn't make any moves.

Would the Kansas City Chiefs be interested in any of these players?

Maybe but....

...The Raiders seem unlikely to deal with a team in their division.


NFL Trade Rumors: Which Kansas City Chiefs Are Available?

The NFL trade deadline is coming up and already the rumors are starting. With the Kansas City Chiefs, I can't see any deals being made. The Chiefs are playing well and they're emphasizing the team aspect of things so my best guess is that they stay put on the trade deadline.

There are some players, however, that could draw some interest across the league. Whether the Chiefs listen to those calls is another story.

WR Dwayne Bowe: I'm not sure if the Chiefs have a long-term plan with him. Todd Haley this week spent some time propping him up after a game in which he dropped a big touchdown pass. Personally, I don't see a big future in Kansas City for Bowe. That could change but for now I just don't see it. His contract will be coming up after 2011 and the Chiefs will have to decide to give him more money or not. Do they want to reward someone like Bowe? If not, then it would be a good idea to be all ears if others come calling.

G Brian Waters: It seems that every year folks are saying Brian Waters will start declining rapidly and to this point it hasn't happened. Will there be interest in Waters? Sure, but the price tag on someone like him would be a late round draft pick (if that). For the Chiefs, Waters is worth way more than a late round draft pick. He's someone whose impact isn't measured just on the field so I can't see the Chiefs parting ways with him before his contract runs out after 2011.

Linebackers: The Chiefs have a couple of linebackers that could interest other clubs. There's always Derrick Johnson, who didn't see much playing time last season and Demorrio Williams, who is now a backup. If a team is looking for an inside linebacker, those are two capable ones. The Chiefs, if offered, may not have a significant enough reason to hang onto both (depending on the other of course). The Chiefs seem to be deep there so I could see some interest in that area.


NFL Trade Rumors: Seahawks Trade Deion Branch To Patriots

if the Kansas City Chiefs were hoping to add to their stable of receivers, it won't be coming from Seattle. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Seahawks traded WR Deion Branch back to the New England Patriots for a fourth round pick.

This has little to no bearing on the Chiefs trade talks moving forward.

One outside, wild trade scenario I've thought of has been the Patriots and WR Dwayne Bowe. The Chiefs and Patriots have shown an affinity for trading with each other and with the Patriots possibly needing a receiving with Randy Moss now gone, I thought a Bowe trade would be an outside shot. Apparently not anymore. Moving onto the next trade scenario...

The NFL trade deadline comes on Tuesday, Oct. 19.


Do NFL Trade Rumors Include Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe?

On Sunday against the Colts, Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe dropped a couple of key passes including what would have been the go-ahead touchdown.

That's caused a lot of Chiefs fans and media to wonder Bowe's future on the team. Would he be someone the Chiefs would trade? If you believe Chiefs coach Todd Haley, who praised Bowe on Monday, Bowe isn't going anywhere.

"We have won with Dwayne and we will continue to win with Dwayne."

It sounds like the Chiefs coach is serious about Dwayne Bowe in 2010 and beyond. At least that's the way it sounds. Not all coaches are 100 percent honest while speaking to the media.

I do wonder sometimes if the Chiefs will try to trade Bowe this year or next before his contract ends. I'm not sure that they view him as a long-term part of the future so, as the Patriots have shown, maybe they should trade the player while you can still get draft picks out of them.


NFL Trade Rumors Picking Up As Deadline Date Nears

Expect plenty of rumors over the next week and a half as the NFL trade deadline date nears.

The NFL trade deadline comes on Tuesday, Oct. 19.

Generally we'll see some activity heating up around those days. As with all trade deadlines, the rumors far outweigh the actual deals.

I can't imagine the Chiefs looking at any trades. It's just hard to see at this point. Their team is currently 3-1 and will be 4-1 or 3-2 come Tuesday, Oct. 19.

The defense doesn't need any changes. Everyone there seems to be playing together very well as a unit.

Offense deserves some looks on the trade market in Kansas City. Quarterback isn't a position that you'll see traded in season very often, at least not a starting quarterback. The Chiefs are content at running back. The receivers could certainly use some upgrades but top ones are generally expensive. The offensive line has been OK to this point despite RT Ryan O'Callaghan's absence.
