Over the Past few days There have been multiple transactions that will definelty be important come next season.
The 1st was The Giants Trading a disgruntled Jeremy Shocket to An already contending Saints team. In return the Giants will receive 1 2nd and a 5th Rd pick In next years draft. But now who really was the winner in this trade? The Giants get rid of a distracting yet talented player, but still have a Good backup In kevin boss who Proved himself in last years postseason. Plus The Eli Manning Actually did better without him. all that in itself is good but they get 2 picks to further improve their team next year. The saints Get another target and weapon To help brees and colston. This will propel The saints offense into the top 5 offenses This season and Him and Bress to be a great pair. But they do lost a very high pick in next years Draft. All-in-all They both Got something But the winner would have To be the Giants.
The next Trade happened to the Washington Redskins. They sent a 2nd and 6th Rd pick down to Miami. In return they picked up future hall of fame DE Jason Taylor. This Was somewhat of a knee jerk reaction from the injury of starting DE phillip daniels. This shows how serious the Redskins are for winning now. although He will play out his 2 years Taylor is aging. He will Help chse down division Qbs like Romo, McNabb, and Manning. The Dolphins make a Great Move with this. They Know they Wont win anytime soon so they get 2 more picks for the future. This is all because of The tunas paience knowing that someone would get hurt and his stock would go up. This Was a Win for The dolphins. Maybe not right aay but in a few years this will be looked at as a very good move.
With all that news some things are often overlooked. Here are a few transactions the past week.
