How many legit #1 receivers have been traded midseason? "That's how these deals work." Really? Trades in the NFL are pretty infrequent, and blockbuster deals involving marquee players are even more rare. Can you give me a couple of examples of "these deals" and how they work? Marquee players about to reach UFA status that were traded in-season. I can think of a washed up Randy Moss, and that's pretty much it.
