    Glazer also reports that players on the trading block include Bills cornerback Nate Clements, Jets running back Derrick Blaylock, Rams defensive end Anthony Hargove, and Cardinals offensive lineman Leonard Davis.

    Glazer reports that the Cardinals are looking for "a pick or a player," and one G.M. got the impression that the Cardinals are simply trying to unload him

    Jay Glazer of FOX NFL Sunday reports that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are engaging in a potential "fire sale," with players such as defensive tackle Booger McFarland and cornerback Brian Kelley being offered.

    "They said we can take a look at their roster and aside from first-day picks the last couple of years, guys like Cadillac [Williams], everyone else they're open to talking about," one team's G.M. told Glazer. "They can't trade certain guys like Derrick Brooks or Ronde' Barber but we got the impression they were open to everybody else."

    Although the 2007 cap consequences of trading any of the current Bucs are presently unclear, the 2006 cap hit is clear -- there would be none.

    Under the new CBA, trading a guy after June 1 has the same cap consequence of cutting him after June 1. Specifically, the allocation of any signing bonus for the year stays on the books, and the remainder of the allocation is charged against the 2007 salary cap. Under the old CBA, the entire unallocated portion of any signing bonus money accelerated into the cap year in which the trade was made.

    Frankly, we're surprised that the Bucs would risk creating the impression that they're giving up on a season that still has 12 games to go. But because the trading deadline is so early, the front office and coach Jon Gruden had to make a tough decision to try to get some help for 2007 and beyond by possibly giving up some players who could have been the difference down the stretch if the Bucs can get it going in the right direction under rookie Bruce Gradkowski.

    It's just another reason why the trading deadline should be moved into the middle of November. If the Bucs were to win their next four games, they might not be as interested in moving some of the guys who currently on the block.
