Falcons to swoop in for Clemson’s Branch and Thompson as Cowboys aim for Upshaw
Here are NFL Trade Rumors for Indianapolis Colts, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons.
Indianapolis Colts are quite easily the most confusing yet interesting team in the NFL. Add their owner Jim Irsay to the equation and you have the perfect recipe for drama.
My opinion is that things at the Indy are going to get a lot messier before they get better. I reckon Colt-heads should buckle up for a long and draining season.
From what I’ve heard Irsay has no intentions of bringing top notch players to Indianapolis this season, however the club has been linked with a couple of interesting names including Andrew Luck.
Personally, I find it hard to believe that a player of Luck’s caliber would risk his career with Indianapolis, nonetheless I wish the club best of luck for their 2012 endeavors.
Dallas’ main objective is to acquire a good pass-rusher before the 2012 season. Courtney Upshaw of Alabama could be the answer to their quest.
According to reports from NFL.com itself, Upshaw has attracted a lot of interest in the market. Dallas official are thoroughly assessing Upshaw after their executive admitted that the youngster was worth a “hard look”.
According to various media reports, Philadelphia has an eye out for Cleveland Brown’s No. 4 overall pick.
These rumors have intensified over the last couple of weeks, with Philadelphia showing heart for a trade move. However, an insider suggests that Philadelphia is still far from making up their mind on this speculated deal.
Atlanta could use reinforcement in their defensive department this season. If you ask me I’d say they need to immediately recruit players at defensive end and outside linebacker.
If Atlanta wants to avoid repeating mistakes from last season, they should add someone like Andre Branch to their team.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta set out to signing in Clemson’s Branch (defensive end) and Brandon Thompson (defensive tackle). The duo posted impressive statistics with Clemson last year.
