Daily Haze: Thursday Trades Dominate the NFL Headlines

Another head-spinning day in the condensed NFL offseason, yesterday was dominated by some big trades across the league. Fantasy implications abound:
1. The Saints traded Reggie Bush to Miami
New Orleans wanted to bring Bush back, but could not afford him. So instead of cutting Bush, the Saints shipped him off to Miami for some chump change. Better than getting nothing in return, I suppose. Good move for both Pierre Thomas and Daniel Thomas, however.
2. Chad Ocho Cinco gets traded to Cincinnati
I thought the Bengals weren’t in the business of trading players who wanted out? So much for that, Mike Brown. Instead of trading your top commodity, starting quarterback Carson Palmer, you let him retire and trade disgruntled wide receiver Chad Ocho Cinco to arguably the best team in the AFC. Good job.
3. Greg Olsen gets traded to the Panthers
Carolina has been aggressive in free agency. They kept DeAngelo Williams and are planning to keep Steve Smith, acquired Jeremy Shockey from the Saints before the lockout and now traded for Greg Olsen. Some nice pieces in place here if Cam Newton can do anything at the quarterback position. The NFC South has to be one of the toughest divisions this season.
4. Kevin Kolb finally lands in Arizona after all the speculation
Seemed like the Kolb-to-Arizona talk lasted longer than the NFL-lockout-is-almost-over talk. Finally, the deal has been made and the Cardinals have their man. Larry Fitzgerald is going to be a happy camper and should see his fantasy stock rebound.
Here are today’s great reads:
