I can’t believe that LA made this trade.

DC is the odds on favorite to win the East.

I can tell you that LA is really happy with their group of receivers.

LA has made some real unique moves thus far.

Drafting Oakman and Spicer. Then cutting them before training camp even starts. Trading away Jalen Collins for Springs, and now swapping Ross for McBride.

Ross is a take the top off a defense type receiver. McBride has 4.3 speed but he’s more of an underneath guy. I am interested in seeing who emerges as LA’s go to guy. Rooting for KD Cannon.

For DC. This move is a no brainer. Rich got richer from where I sit. You have to give Greg Gabriel credit for the roster he has put together in DC. They have two good Quarterbacks, three good runners and they are very talented at wideout.

DC-Dallas was my early championship game pick back in October. I am sticking with it. Even with Landry hurt.

There was also a Stacy Coley-Freddie Martino trade between the Renegades and Vipers listed on the transactions page, but those transactions have since been deleted. No tweet of that trade either. I wonder what happened there.

Freddie Martino - has played on off for Bucs... had a big game against Pitt a few years ago I think?

Likable wideout... plays hard.

I can't find a clip now but I remember months ago Luck saying one of the benefits of league wide training camp was being able to see how all the teams stacked up, talent-wise, at different positions, and how if could help the league achieve competitive balance.

Part of me wonders if the league itself has had a hand in some of these trades after seeing a talent gap between the teams.

Being a Bears fan, I’m familiar with McBride. Thought he had a lot of potential. One of his first games with the Bears he almost had a 100 yard receiving game. Then after that, nothing.

Ross is definitely better than McBride overall.

Yup. I’m definitely getting that “Mike Singletary” vibe from the Wildcats. Wonder how it’ll stack up against the Mike Stoop types. Bigger names are getting weeded out, personality clashes? Honestly haven’t read up on McBride. But Ross seemed like a no brainer.

Guess we’ll see.

For what it's worth I still see the Coley/Martino trade on the transactions page.

I'm a little surprised nearly all the trades thus far have been within the same position group.
