Mark Sanchez headlines possible NFL trade rumors for 2013
The 2012 NFL season is coming to a close, and that means that we are inching nearer to the time
where teams make some interesting moves to try to rework their teams. Here are our NFL picks
for the top names that could be traded in the upcoming offseason.
Mark Sanchez – Sources have already reported that the Jets are going to openly shop Sanchez
in the offseason in hopes that someone is going to eat at least a piece of the massive contract that
he was given in the offseason last year. New York might be forced to hold onto him, because
Sanchez would come with over a $15M salary cap hit if he is cut and there is no trade partner for
Tim Tebow – Now that he has been passed on the depth chart by QB Greg McElroy, Tebow
wants out of the Big Apple as well. He has some trade value for the right team that can use him
and market him properly, and we fully expect to see him moved by the end of the NFL Draft for,
perhaps a third or a fourth round draft pick.
Philip Rivers – There’s going to be a new coach and a new GM in San Diego next year. Could
there be a new quarterback as well? Rivers has tossed 15 picks this year, and in his last 30
games, he has 49 TDs and 35 INTs. That just doesn’t cut it at this level, and the Bolts might want
to start over while they can still get some value for their signal caller.
DeAngelo Williams – Williams and RB Jonathan Stewart really need to be broken up, and the
time might be now for that to happen. Williams was dangled at the trade deadline this year, but
nothing happened and he was stuck in Carolina. He hasn’t had a great career, but for a team that
is lacking at the running back position, the former first round pick could become available.
