I’m going to hit on this real quick with some bullet points.
- Cleveland Browns wide receiver Braylon Edwards was traded to the New York Jets for Jason Trusnik, a great special teams player, Chansi Stuckey, the wide receiver that won the starting spot opposite Jerricho Cotchery after Laveranues Coles left and a couple of draft picks.
- The San Francisco 49ers have finally agreed to a deal with rookie wide receiver Michael Crabtree. I don’t know the amount the contract is worth yet, but it will be a six-year deal that can be reduced to five years if Crabtree meets certain performance requirements.
- In quarterback news, Donovan McNabb of the Philadelphia Eagles was cleared to play and should start on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
- In opposite quarterback news, the New York Giants Eli Manning did not participate in practice and instead got treatment on his injured foot, which has been diagnosed as plantar fasciitis. His status for this weeks game against the Oakland Raiders is still up in the air. If he can’t go, David Carr will start in his place.
- Also, the St. Louis Blues owner Dave Checketts and talk radio host Rush Limbaugh have teamed up and made a bid to buy the St. Louis Rams, something I’m sure Bryan will want to touch more on later.
