Appearing on the Dennis & Callahan Show Tuesday morning, Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com and NBC Sports suggested that the NFL's trade deadline (which is at 4 p.m. EST Tuesday) is too early, resulting in limited activity. "You can't have a fire-sale six weeks in," Florio said.
Florio predicted that neither Logan Mankins of the Patriots or the Chargers' Vincent Jackson will be moved prior to the deadline, and that he believes the most likely player to get traded is Washington's Albert Haynesworth. "I have a feeling, and it's just a feeling, something is going on," Florio said. He mentions the Houston Texans as a possible fit, citing the relationship between the two teams' head coaches, Mike Shanahan and Gary Kubiak, along with the Redskins' potential interest in running back Steve Slaton.
Florio also touched on the NFL's recent mandate regarding dangerous plays, saying that by including...

According to ESPN.com, the NFL will announce that all "devastating hits" and "head shots" will be subject to immediate suspensions beginning in the coming weekend of games. Even players who run afoul of such a rule for the first time will be subject to suspension, NFL executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson told the website.
"We can't and won't tolerate what we saw Sunday," Anderson told ESPN.com. "We've got to get the message to players that these devastating hits and head shots will be met with a very necessary higher standard of accountability. We have to dispel the notion that you get one free pass in these egregious or flagrant shots."
Sunday saw a number of vicious hits in which players led with their helmets, including one by Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather...
Rangers ace Cliff Lee added to his dominant postseason resume, setting a new personal playoff high by striking out 13 Yankees to lead Texas to an 8-0 victory. With the win, the Rangers are now up 2-to-1 in the best-of-seven American League Championship Series.
Lee dissected the Yankees over the course of eight innings, retiring the first 11 batters and, after issuing a two-out walk (his first in three starts this postseason) in the fourth, carrying a no-hitter through 4 2/3 innings. Though the left-hander's bid for the second no-hitter of this postseason faded with Jorge Posada's broken-bat bloop single to right, Lee dominated New York, allowing just two hits in his night of work.
The Yankees advanced just one runner past first base against Lee, when Brett Gardner singled, stole second and advanced to third on a groundout in the sixth. But Mark Teixeira grounded out to end New York's only real threat of the night....
