The NFL makes bold predictions for Johnny Manziel and Jay Cutler

Chicago Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler has been all over the news this week following a poor Bears performance last weekend and a very criticising rant from Chicago team-mate Brandon Marshall.

Following a 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins Cutler has been the victim of a lot of criticism and now has made a bold possibility for him.

It's not just Cutler in their predictions as Cleveland Browns Quarterback Johnny Manziel and Arizona Cardinals Wide Receiver Larry Fitzgerald are assigned new teams.

The players feature in a list called 'Six trades we'd love to see before NFL trade deadline' and needless to say, if any of those trades came off, it would be of great interest to all NFL fans.

The writers would apparently love to see Cutler move to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a trade for Josh McCown and Mike Glennon.


It certainly would make a lot of headlines around the NFL should that trade come off but Cutler to the Buccaneers is just one in a line.

The New York Jets have certainly been struggling this season and a lot of criticism has fallen onto the shoulders of second year Quarterback Geno Smith.

But in the hypothetical world of the NFL writers, Browns Quarterback Johnny Manziel would be a good fit at the MetLife stadium and would likely only cost the Jets their second round pick in next year's draft.

The Jets' AFC East rivals the New England Patriots also feature on the list also but  their projected target would be Cardinals Receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald is under utilized in the Arizona offensive with several of their rookies enjoying breakout seasons, plus the Patriots have shown interest in Fitzgerald in the past.

Other teams in need

Three more fantasy trades were included and a new wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs could certainly scoop some headlines.

They theorise that the Chiefs would make a move for Tampa Bay's Vincent Jackson in order to help a struggling receiver core in Kansas City.

What if the World Champion Seattle Seahawks took a page out of the Denver Broncos book and go for a play making tight-end?

They're unlikely to lure Julius Thomas away from Denver but a move for Andre Johnson of the Houston Texans would give Johnson a chance to play with a promising young Quarterback, rather than Ryan Fitzpatrick who isn't having the greatest of runs right now.

Finally, the in form Dallas Cowboys who are currently witnessing a great season from Runningback DeMarco Murray, but could they be going for another Runningback?

Mark Ingram of the New Orleans Saints would be their prospective target if the NFL writers are to be believed.
