As PEYTON MANNING tries to decide which NFL team he intends to punk with his Hall of Fame presence, a lot of other wheeling and dealing has taken place elsewhere around the NFL of late. According to league sources, the Miami Dolphins have traded Pro Bowl wideout BRANDON MARSHALL to the Chicago Bears for two third-round draft picks.
Chicago will part with its third-round picks in 2012 and 2013 as the Bears reunite QB Jay Cutler with Marshall, his go-to receiver while the two played for the Broncos.
In another development, 35-year old RANDY MOSS returns from a one-year hiatus, signing a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers. Desperately needing to upgrade their offensive attack, head coach Jim Harbaugh looks to team Moss up with Pro Bowl tight end Vernon Davis, while youngsters Michael Crabtree and Ted Ginn, Jr. continue to find their way.
The housecleaning continues in Indy as Colts wideout PIERRE GARÇON announced to Twitter followers that he is signing with the Washington Redskins. Now that the ‘Skins are in position to draft their franchise QB in Heisman Trophy stud Robert Griffin III, they’ll need someone he can throw the ball to. Garçon is as good a choice as any.
Also, the (dare I say it) Super Bowl champion NY Giants waived long-time running back Brandon Jacobs. I guess this big bully will have to find another block to play on.
The NBA trade deadline is Thursday but the NFL has been making all the latest headlines. Yo, David Stern…what you got?
