Tuesday's big trade has been called just about every adjective in the book. To some, the Oakland Raiders sending a first-round pick in 2012 and a second-round pick in 2013 for Carson Palmer is egregious and a gamble. To others, it's a lot to spend, but for a team in ...

Trades happen during the season and rarely do big names move in the middle of the season. The trade deadline came and went yesterday and not that many players were moved.  The Eagles were light at middle linebacker with scheduled starter Stewart Bradley out with a torn knee ligament, and ...
