I was quite behind today in getting to work on the blog. I had work in the morning, then a doctor appointment, then needed to get some rest from this awesome flu I’ve got. Anyways, I’ve spend some time catching up on all of the days rumors, so let me get them for you.

RAIDERS – (CB)NNAMDI ASOMUGHA
I want to start with Raiders (CB)Nnamdi Asomugha because there have been conflicting reports on his availability before the deadline approaches tomorrow @ 4:00EST. I personally don’t think the Raiders move him, but the 2 teams that keep coming up in trade talks for the star defensive back are the Lions, and Ravens. Makes sense because both are struggling to the point of embarrassment. I don’t see the Lions making a move for him as they are still in re-building mode and draft picks are quite precious to them. The Ravens, now they could swing something together for Asomugha. I still can’t believe that with a secondary that includes (CB)Domonique Foxworth, (CB)Fabian Washington, (CB)Chris Carr, (CB)Frank Walker, and possible rookie gem (CB)Lardarius Webb, that you are in desperate need of a corner back. These players all have so much talent, but are just not using it. What a shame too…what someone needs to do is gets under their asses, and light a fire under there, and keep it held there until they play to their full potential.

CHIEFS – (WR)DWAYNE BOWE
Bowe’s performance yesterday (109yds / 6rec) was supposedly based on the verbal shellacking Chiefs Head Coach Todd Haley gave Bowe during a weak first quarter performance. Haley reportedly told Bowe that if he didn’t produce, then he would be traded. I’m sure Bowe wanted to produce anyways, so it looks good to potential teams that may want to acquire him. Reportedly, as I mentioned on a previous post, the Ravens are interested in the services of Dwayne Bowe. Another team that has reportedly inquired about his availability is the Miami Dolphins.

RAVENS – (LB)ANTWAN BARNES
Supposedly the Ravens have had Barnes on the “trading block” since training camp. I’ve read that the Eagles may be interested in his services, especially with the injury to (LB)Omar Gaither.

CHIEFS – (DT)GLENN DORSEY
The new Chiefs regime apparently hasn’t been “sold” on Glenn Dorsey, and haven’t been since their new regime was in place. With the Chiefs supposedly in “Fire-Sale” mode, Glenn Dorsey would be a guy a lot of teams would be interested in. As of right now, I’m hearing the Lions are very interested in Dorsey and it wouldn’t be surprising if Lions pulled it off before the deadline.

PATRIOTS – (WR)JOEY GALLOWAY
Joey Galloway has been a healthy inactive for 2 straight weeks and the Patriots seem to be looking to trade him. Reportedly the Ravens have inquired about Joey Galloway, because they are actively looking for a wide receiver. But Galloway might be a last option if they fail to get a deal done for Bowe, and another receiver who’s nickname rhymes with Bowe………

BILLS – (WR)TERRELL OWENS
The Ravens made a call to the Bills to see if they could work something out for T.O. Reportedly Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome has dialog with a number of teams concerning a number of different players. No other teams have been reported to have contacted the Bills about Owens.

CHARGERS – (LB)SHAWNE MERRIMAN
I know a lot of teams would be interested in Merriman. I’ve heard the Patriots are really interested in Merriman, and they definitely have a plethora of future picks, so I’m sure parting with one or two of them wouldn’t hurt, especially when you are acquiring Shawne Merriman.

BROWNS – (WR/KR)JOSHUA CRIBBS
The Browns organization, as well as head coach Eric Mangini have stated that they will not be trading Joshua Cribbs. Six teams supposedly made a call to see about his availability including the Colts, Dolphins, Jaguars, 49ers, Chiefs, and Raiders. I guess it will depend on if one of the these teams makes Cleveland an offer they cannot refuse.

HERE ARE A FEW NOTES ON SOME RUMORS PERTAINING TO THE TRADE DEADLINE :

– The Eagles are reportedly still dangling (WR)Kevin Curtis as trade bait.
– The Colts supposedly inquired about the availability of Buccaneers (LB)Barrett Ruud, and Bills (WR)Roscoe Parrish
– The Lions may be interested in Chiefs (LB)Derrick Johnson, and reportedly he could be had for a mid-round pick.
– The Browns could be looking to shop (LB)Kamerion Wimbley, (DL)Corey Williams, and possibly (DT)Shaun Rogers.
– The Jaguars reportedly are looking to shop (DE)Quentin Groves at a low price.
– The Rams may be looking to trade (TE)Randy McMichael, due to the emergence of (TE)Daniel Fells
– The Chargers may be willing to trade (WR)Chris Chambers, but shouldn’t expect to get back much for him.
– Either the Browns don’t want to trade (QB)Brady Quinn or they can’t find any takers.
– Packers (LB)Desmond Bishop, who’s buried on the depth chart, said he would be open to the team trading him before the deadline.

***I will be updated this post throughout the evening as I compile more information.
