It remains to be seen if the recent surprising trade of running back Trent Richardson from the Browns to the Colts, a deal most experts agree was beneficial to both sides, will result in similar deals across the league. But it sure is fun to think about it. ESPN.com writer Greg Garber has come up with five hypothetical trades involving superstars who currently find themselves in sticky situations, either of their own doing or as a result of the uninspired play of their respective teams. Would you sign off on the deals?


Adrian Peterson

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is not on pace to hit the 2,500-yard rushing mark he predicted before the season. He would need 169 yards per game the rest of the way to do it. Then again, he did average 159.8 yards per game down the stretch last season.

SportsNation

Vikings trade Adrian Peterson to Giants for Justin Tuck, David Wilson and 2014 second- and fifth-round picks.

Maurice Jones-Drew

Perhaps the only person in Jacksonville more frustrated than Jaguars fans is Jaguars RB Maurice-Jones Drew. He says that isn't true, but how can he not be with just 103 carries (13th in the league) and only 316 yards to show for it?

SportsNation

Jaguars trade Maurice Jones-Drew to Patriots for a 2014 sixth-round draft choice.

Larry Fitzgerald

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald was recently named the most-liked player in the NFL in a fan survey. Even Seahawks CB Richard Sherman has said Fitzgerald is too nice to be the target of Sherman's usual trash talk. Do nice guys really finish last?

SportsNation

Cardinals trade Larry Fitzgerald to Packers for 2014 No. 2 draft choice, Johnathan Franklin and Jordy Nelson.

Von Miller and Ronnie Hillman

LB Von Miller made his return Sunday after serving a six-game suspension and registered just two tackles in the Broncos first loss of the season. Denver RB Ronnie Hillman had an equally forgettable game, making a key fumble in the final minutes.

SportsNation

Broncos trade Von Miller and Ronnie Hillman to Cowboys for Morris Claiborne, DeMarco Murray, Barry Church and 2014 second-round draft choice.

Tony Gonzalez

Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez has said that he won't "jump ship" and that he is still "happy as I can be to be a Falcon." But it sure would be nice to see the nicest guy in the league not named Larry Fitzgerald get one more shot at a Super Bowl.

SportsNation

Falcons trade Tony Gonzalez to Chiefs for Anthony Fasano and 2014 No. 5 draft choice.
