An unhappy Eric Moulds looks to be receiving the trade he’s been demandingDon't Mess with Eric Moulds for the last few weeks. The veteran receiver refused to restructure his contract in Buffalo and now the Bills are on the verge of shipping him to Houston for a fourth round pick in this year’s NFL Draft.

Moulds should serve at the ideal complement to Andrew Johnson. Maybe the young receiver won’t completely suck this season and ruin certain people’s fantasy football teams! Perhaps David Carr will also now live up to his billing.

It’s been a busy off-season for wide outs. Keyshawn Johnson went to Carolina; Randy Moss’ agent was arrested; Terrell Owens ended up in Dallas. Sadly, the NFL also cracked down on endzone celebrations, meaning we may have to appreciate Chad Johnson only for his talent.

Welcome to NY, Patrick One of the worst kept secrets of the NFL rumor mill has become a reality. The Jets and Redskins completed a deal for Patrick Ramsey this week. In exchange for a sixth round pick in this year’s draft, New York picks up its potential future quarterback.

Ramsey began last season as a started in Washington before giving way to Mark Brunell. He’ll be used as an insurance policy in the Big Apple, in case Chad Pennington doesn’t return successfully from shoulder surgery.

No matter who’s behind center for the Jets, don’t waste a single fantasy draft pick on him. Both QBs must prove their worth.

Just throw him the damn ball. Please. Pretty please. Anyone?

In order to avoid paying Keyshawn Johnson a $1 million roster bonus this week, the Cowboys cut the selfish, better-than-average receiver yesterday. The former number-one draft pick led Dallas last season with receptions (71) and sideline eruptions aimed at Drew Bledsoe (1). He also caught six touchdowns.

While Johnson now joins the free agent market, the real focus will be on whether or not Dallas made the move in order to make room for another surly wide out. Yes, fans, consider this the first commentary regarding a possible destination for Terrell Owens. Recently released by the Eagles, could this idiot end up in the same division as Philly in 2006?

The Files will keep you posted. Purely a possession receiver, Johnson can typically be counted on for around six or seven receptions a game - and approximately 17 yards. No matter where he ends up, he’s no better than a third WR on your fantasy team.

As of this afternoon, Terrell Owens is free to play for any team that wants to make a horrible mistake and sign him. The Philadelphia Eagles released the wide receiver Tuesday, officially severing ties with the star after two tumultuous seasons.

Owens was due a $5 million roster bonus Wednesday, so the Eagles had to cut him or trade him by today to avoid paying him the money. The move was a mere formality after Owens was kicked off the team in November following his repeated contract squabbling and criticism of quarterback Donovan McNabb.

The Eagles gave Owens and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, permission to talk with other teams in January. The former All-Pro has met with the Denver Broncos, while Miami and Dallas reportedly have interest in Owens, and Kansas City has said it would consider signing the flamboyant f-kup to a one-year, incentive-laden deal.

After weeks of rumors, innuendos and many, many emails, Daunte Culpepper has finally gotten his wish: the All-Pro quarterback has been traded to the Miami Dolphins. This is really a win-win scenario for all involved.

Culpepper is not only out of Minnesota, he’s playing in a city by the water. There’s no telling how many sex cruises can be enjoyed in southern Florida. He’s also hitting the Miami real estate market at a perfect time for buyers seeking a reasonable Florida home loan down south. Some guys have all the luck.

Another benefactor of this deal? Chris Chambers. Look for the wide receiver to possibly leap into the top five at his position for next season’s fantasy draft.

The Vikings, meanwhile, will receive a second round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. Fred Smoot is hoping it’s Candy. Possibly Crystal. There’s a far better chance that the team gives new starter Brad Johnson some help on the offensive line or at running back. But you never know, Fred. We’ve heard that Mystique can set a mean pancake block.

Lloyd Lunges for a PassThose wondering why the 49ers would trade their top wide receiver, Brandon Lloyd, to the Redskins - for a third and fourth round draft pick in 2007 - need to remember two facts:

  1. His three-year tenure with the club was filled with more preening and fighting with veterans than with impressive catches and clutch plays.
  2. The team has no one to throw the ball to receivers. They should trade their entire wideout corps for defensive help.

San Francisco may actually be following that last piece of advice. Having already released Johnnie Morton, the immortal Arnaz Battle is the Niners’ top WR. He wouldn’t be among the top 50 at his position in a fantasy draft.

The team is expected to pursue free agents, such as Antwaan Randle-El. It may have difficulty convincing players to sign, however, with Alex Smith, at quarterback. The 49ers also hold the sixth pick in April’s NFL Draft, but are expected to look at defensive stars, such as AJ Hawk, with the selection.

Blame it on the unknown status of Brett Favre. Or maybe other trade talk within the division is getting to him. Whatever the cause of his discontent, Javon Walker has demanded to be dealt out of Green Bay.

Walker is Tired of Celebrating in Green BayThe All-Pro receiver doesn’t believe the organization treats players with the respect they deserve. This follows his brief hold out to begin last season, along with the dissatisfaction with how his contract has been handled compared with other Packers, such as Ahman Green. To wit:

I just don’t feel like this is the best place for me to be right now … I just don’t like the way the organization runs itself. They want players to come up there and play hard and work hard, but when it comes time to be compensated, it’s like, ‘We forgot what you’ve done.’

A torn ACL ended Walker’s season - along with that of many fantasy owners last year - during the team’s opening game. No matter where he ends up, expect a big year from the man who caught 12 TD passes in 2004. He ought to be one of the top 10 wideouts selected in your fantasy draft.

He’s going. He’s staying. He can’t wait to come back to Minnesota next season. He’s dying for a ticket out of town. Daunte Culpepper is proving to change tunes more than Nick Lachey changes dates.

Recently, Culpepper stated his desire to remain in a Vikings’ uniform. He seemed exicited about the team’s 2006 prospects. Now? Check out his latest email:

If a trade does not happen then I am asking the Vikings to terminate my contract as soon as possible … because of the fundamental differences I have with management regarding the approach to my personal and professional life, I think it is the best business decision for both parties to go our separate ways.

This guy emails more than a college freshman. It hasn’t been the best week for Culpepper. Earlier, he helped accuse the prosecution in the Minnesota sex cruise of racial discrimination.

If Culpepper does not remain with the Vikings, where could he end up? Call the Files crazy, but Oakland’s quarterback situation is in limbo. Could Daunte be reunited with Randy Moss in 2006? A nation holds its breath in anticipation.

Michael Vick is No #1 Fantasy QBWe’re happy for Atlanta that Michael Vick wins a lot of games and all - but select him for your squad and look forward to around 15 touchdown passes on the season and numerous games with less than 150 yards passing.

Peyton Manning accomplishes those numbers in a half. Almost.

Vick just made news off the field, however. The Falcons guaranteed the All-Pro quarterback a $7 million roster bonus, creating around $5.25 million in salary cap space. The team still needs to get under the 2006 cap, but is now in far better shape to do so than other clubs, such as the Jets.

Look for a teammate of Vick’s, meanwhile, to shoot up the draft boards. Warrick Dunn is finally being recognized as an elite back.

Now that Eric Moulds has rejected the Bills’ offer to restructure his contract, the receiver second in club history to Andre Reed in yards and catches could be on his way out.

“Based on what they’re proposing, I guess it’s not encouraging,” Moulds’ agent Harry Henderson told The Associated Press following a meeting with team officials. “We’re way off. … Our attitude has been optiIs Moulds Done in Buffalo?mistic, but realistically it may not happen.”

Moulds is a 10-year veteran and the team’s senior player, but he’s schedules to count $10.85 million agains the salary cap in 2006. Unless a new deal can be reached, the Bills would have little choice but to cut Moulds, which would save the team about $5.5 million in cap room … not to mention a handful of headaches after the wideout complained about his role in last season’s offense.

The release could come as early as this week, prior to the NFL’s free-agency period, scheduled to open March 3. Unlike Curtis Martin, Moulds appears unwilling to place the club’s interests above his own.

If he is let go, look for another team to sign this veteran. He could still be worthy of a third WR slot on your fantasy team - but, more importantly, this would leave the door open for Lee Evans and Josh Reed to have big years.
