The trade deadline was 4:00PM ET today, so apologies if I didn't catch everything before I went to work: (unless noted, all draft picks are for the 2019 draft)
Packer GM Aaron Rodgers Brian Gutekunst sent Ty Montgomery to the Ravens for a GTFO 7th-round pick.
NFL News: another very quite day. US sports seem to be avoiding getting in the NBA's way.
Someone had the bright idea to talk to Peyton Manning about Andrew Luck's injury & missed year.
Especially while Peyton is golfing a pro-am at The Memorial with Tiger Woods
Manning advised that
Break out the Vitamin-D SADS lamps, because Brandon Marshall has signed a one-year deal to play for the Seahawks.
The idea seems to be to use him in goal line situations where his size could help block out defenders or help him reign in short passes for scores.
Oh boy - The Browns are this year's "Hard Knocks" team.
The Browns aren't especially happy about it, but their only option for avoiding it was firing Hue Jackson, since teams with new coaches don't have to be on it.
My favourite scene will be when Jimmy
I don't know about where you live, but in Vancouver it appear summer may finally be around the corner.

It's very quiet, what with everyone travelling to Dallas & not wanting to tip hands ahead of Thursday night.
The John Lynch standard: don't hit women. As opposed to the "see if they're cops first" maxim followed by his teammate Warren Sapp.

No details about what was discussed, just various media reminders that Tom Brady is almost 41.
Aaron Rodgers owns a piece of the Milwaukee Bucks.
Well, this is interesting:
OBJ says he won't play without a contract extension.
Giants co-owner John Mara said Sunday, "I wouldn't say that anyone is untouchable."
As we saw last season, Eli doesn't play well if all his toys aren't in the sandbox with him.
It's "hurt feelings"
ESPN says ankle sprain, but OBJ & the Giants are getting an MRI just to be sure.
And just to pour on the salt, PFT questions whether OBJ should have held out, to avoid the preseason bumps & bruises...and given them copy to talk about his petulance.
