Over the last couple of weeks, Belmont betting enthusiasts also handicapping the NFL have grown in excitement, as the NFL and its players union work out a new collective bargaining agreement. Since early last week, the NFL and PA have met in a sports betting private setting in hopes of no longer needing federal courts to decide their disputes. With roughly two months until preseason begins, here is a look at some trades that need to happen when the lockout ends.
Kevin Kolb to Cincinnati Bengals – The Bengals drafted Andy Dalton from TCU with their second round pick in the 2011 draft, and many experts believe he is the most ready rookie quarterback to step in. However, the Bengals have historically rushed their pivots causing the team to miss out on the playoffs. Having said that, acquiring Kevin Kolb from the Philadelphia Eagles, allows Dalton to learn the tricks of the trade for a few seasons and keep the Bengals competitive with Kolb at the helm.
Carson Palmer to Buffalo Bills – On the other hand, the Bengals are in need of a trade partner for disgruntled quarterback Carson Palmer. While Bengals owner Mike Brown has made it abundantly clear, that Palmer will leave Cincinnati when Brown is good and ready, making a deal with the Bills helps both sides considerably. With the emergence of CJ Sproles during the middle of last season, the Bills found themselves with too many top tier running backs. On the contrary, the Bills desperately need a good quarterback, which at 31 Palmer still is. Meaning to say, a potential Carson Palmer for Fred Jackson deal could work out perfectly for both of these struggling franchises.
Donovan McNabb to Cleveland Browns – With talk of Colt McCoy taking over as the starting quarterback in Cleveland, we couldn’t help but think that the Browns similar to interstate rivals the Bengals desperately need a veteran quarterback. Enter McNabb, who desperately wants out of the Washington Redskins, after he and Head Coach Mike Shanahan had a falling out. It’s no betonline scam, with talk that Plaxico Burress may sign with Cleveland, a McNabb and Burress tandem would be one of the scariest in the entire NFL.
