Trades I addressed this once before and don't think I got a response so here goes again. What is the overall philosophy with trades in this league? I noticed that Thomas Jones for Ochocinco was declined by the trade committee and curious as to why that trade or one like it would be declined. I don't know their respective ratings but would think they are somewhat close, both are close to the same age, and on the surface it looks like a decent trade for both teams. The Jets have Leon Washington and Shonn Green but could use a receiver so Ocho makes sense and the Bengals have Henry and Coles but could use a better back. As I said last time, I believe the philosophy should be that only ridiculous trades get rejected but everything else should be allowed since it is 2 hopefully football knowledgeable adults agreeing to a trade. The reason this matters in my opinion is that I and probably others will be hesitant to put any trades together if we have no idea what the trade committee will rule because we don't know the philosophy/rules going in. Maybe I missed something about what the general philosophy is and if I did I would appreciate if someone could please let me know.
