No Brandon Marshalls Have Been Traded

It's hot-stove season (or whatever) in the NFL, and we've already seen our fair share of surprising moves.

Bills Trade For Matt Cassel

Reports: LeSean McCoy "Not Happy" About Going To Buffalo

A truly shocking, star-for-star trade happens so rarely in the NFL. (Today is the 11th anniversary of Champ Bailey heading west for Clinton Portis!) The Bills swapping talented young LB Kiko Alonso for Eagles star RB LeSean McCoy absolutely qualifies.

Report: ESPN And Fox Sports Nearly Traded Employees

Hey, here's a fun little story. Remember last week when Fox Sports's Katie Nolan went on the BS Report, and she and Bill Simmons kinda coyly reminisced about a failed attempt at bringing her over to Grantland, in the way that people talk about these things on the BS Report, where they don't actually say anything,… » 2/25/15 3:30pm 2/25/15 3:30pm

The Thunder, Pistons, And Jazz Made A Good Trade

The Oklahoma City Thunder are glad they got rid of Reggie Jackson. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are glad; the coach and front office are glad; the fans are glad.

Who Was Responsible For The Herschel Walker Trade?

It was 25 years ago today that the Cowboys traded superstar running back Herschel Walker to the Vikings for a mess of players and picks, a number of whom would be crucial pieces in Dallas's '90s dynasty.

Report: Tom Brady "Very Upset" By Logan Mankins Trade

Cubs Trade Jeff Samardzija And Jason Hammel To Best Team In Baseball

Good news, Jeff Samardzija! You are now a starting pitcher for the Athletics, owners of the best record in baseball. It may smell like old, decaying, actual shit in Oakland, but that's just a modern plumbing problem, not an ancient, metaphorical one like your old home. » 7/05/14 10:05am 7/05/14 10:05am

Tim Thomas Torn From Loving Arms Of Roberto Luongo

Tim Thomas will take his tire-pumping efforts elsewhere. He's heading to Texas, which, let's be honest, is cosmically right. His newest old teammate took it poorly: » 3/05/14 2:34pm 3/05/14 2:34pm
