With the 2010 NFL Draft less than two days away, many teams are remaining active. It seems as though there is some sort of news in the NFL everyday anymore.
Even though all of the news isn’t good news, (Santonio Holmes – 4 game suspension and trade, Ben Roethlisberger – upcoming suspension for violating league’s personal conduct rules, Brandon Marshall – traded to Miami for two second-round picks, all of the free-agent signings, etc.)
The NFL announced the regular season schedule on Tuesday, featuring a few changes and a ton of great match-ups. All 16 games the final week of the season will be divisional match-ups.
Here is the latest in player movement around the NFL:
On Monday, April 19, a three-team trade took place between the Lions, Broncos and Eagles.
- Detroit sent linebacker Ernie Sims to the Eagles
- Philadelphia sent a 5th round pick to Denver
- Denver sent tight end Tony Scheffler and a 7th round pick to Detroit
On Tuesday, April 20, a few players found new homes.
- St. Louis traded defensive tackle Adam Carriker and their 7th round pick to Washington for the Redskins 5th round pick.
- New England signed veteran wide receiver Torry Holt to a one-year deal.
- Pittsburgh signed back-up quarterback Bryon Leftwich
- The New York Jets signed veteran linebacker Jason Taylor
I except that there will be more moves tomorrow and in the hours heading into the draft.
