    What do you think? Would LJ fit into our system? Could he be a good mentor for Slaton? Could their styles compliment each other?

    Anyone else you think might work from this list?

    Though in-season NFL trades are a rarity, four team executives talked to Yahoo! Sports about players they believe should be dealt prior to the deadline next Tuesday.

    The executives agreed that the only teams that should really be cleaning house at this point are the Cincinnati Bengals, Detroit Lions and St. Louis Rams. Even though the Houston Texans are 0-4, many observes believe they will rebound and play well. Furthermore, the Texans don’t have many players who should just be dumped, aside from running back Ahman Green.

    “And I would only take Green if I was truly desperate,” one of the executive said. “Thank God I’m not in that situation.”


    Here’s a list of the top 10 players who should be dealt.

    1. RB Larry Johnson, Kansas City Chiefs

    Comment: “By the time the Chiefs are good again, he’s going to be done. … I don’t understand why they gave him all the money and then they wouldn’t sign Jared Allen. If you’re rebuilding, you don’t do it with a running back who’s going to be burned.” Another executive said Johnson has a reputation around the league as being a “spoiled brat” and “not much of a leader.”

    Best potential fits: He’s not a perfect fit in Philadelphia because of the style of the offense, but all of the executives said the Eagles could use him now that Brian Westbrook has broken ribs. Other teams that could use him would be the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints...(cont)

    Haven't the Lions been trying to trade Roy Williams for some time now?

    Over here.
    Any chance that DeWayne White would be a good fit here at DE? I don't know anything about him, so I'm just asking.
