Trade deadline looming
By James Walker

There is one day remaining before the NFL’s trade deadline for the 2009 season.
Rumors have been circulation involving some big names in the past week, including Cleveland Browns quarterback Brady Quinn and return specialist Joshua Cribbs. All indications are both players will remain in Cleveland past Tuesday’s deadline. Browns defensive lineman Corey Williams is another name to look out for this week.
Also, the Baltimore Ravens reportedly have been linked to receiver Dwayne Bowe of the Kansas City Chiefs. But it’s unknown if this speculation with the Ravens has any traction.
Things are pretty quiet for the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers. The Bengals (4-2) are in first place and appear happy with their standing, unless Antwan Odom's season-ending Achilles injury on Sunday changed their thinking. The Steelers traditionally don’t make any major internal or external moves during the season.
