Trades - Season 5
S Gary Ensminger to Fort Wayne for a 3rd, 5th and 9th round draft
betters their defensive backfield with Ensminger... perhaps three
picks (especially a 3rd) is too much of a price, but certainly better
than any 5th or 8th round player the Safari would end up getting.
trades G Leroy Lele, a 2004 4th round and 2005 4th round pick to
Lincoln for G Brandon Bergstresser.
to deal picks to Lincoln, and this time gets veteran lineman Brandon
Bergstresser. Bergstresser will move from Guard to starting Center.
Bergstresser has played in 60 career games with Mississippi (1999-2000),
Portland (2001-2002) and Lincoln (2003).
G Anaslow McMillion, LB Jeff Faulkner and a 1st round pick for LB
for a top Center and now a Linebacker half-way through the season.
It appears as if they are gearing up for a run at the FIFL Bowl.
George is a good aquisition, but giving up so many high round picks
in one season could hurt the Seagulls long-term.
trades C Kerwin Hairston to Mobile for a 2nd and 3rd round draft
veteran help on the offensive line, and for a heavy price as they
part with a 2nd and 3rd round pick. Hairston might however be worth
trades a 5ht round pick to Mississippi for CB Frank Spraggins.
speed to Green Bay's defense. Spraggins has appeared in 67 games
with 3 different teams since 1999, and had a career season in 1999
with Portland when he had 87 tackles and an interception.
trades S Richard Rodgers and a 3rd round pick to Mobile for LB Marcus
Wiggins and a 5th round pick.
one of their many Linebackers for a quality S in Rodgers. Rodgers
has 8 tackles in his career and looks to get more playing time in
Mobile. Green Bay gets Wiggins who has potential, but never given
true chance to start. Had 39 tackles and 5.0 sacks in 2001.
trades FB Jim Kitts, C Kevin Wheeler, G Jesse Burk, LB J.P. Smith,
CB Kelvin Edwards and rounds 3-8 of their 2004 draft for FB Lorenzo
Davis, WR Wendall Glover, G Dupree Bee, LB Scott Joseph and a 4th
round 2004 pick.
What a deal
for both teams. Lincoln gets some youth and a crop of draft picks
in exchange for some older, but quality veterans. Lincoln rids themselves
of long-time veteran players in hopes that things may soon turn
around. Louisiana is selling the future once again for another shot
at the title. FB Davis looks for some new scenery, as he has potentially
been a top-10 player in the league, but has never produced to his
WR George LaFrance to Portland for WR Brandon Burnside and a 3rd
is already with his 3rd team now, and he has still yet to have been
given a chance to show what he's got. Look for Portland to utilize
hs talents in the two or three WR slot.
trades Lincoln their 7th round 2004 pick for an 8th round 2003 pick.
trade gives Lincoln an earlier pick in 2004.
trades LB Yepi Pauu to Black Hills for2 6th Round Draft Picks (BLK,

cost as they deal a 1st round pick and WR Causey.
QB Jay Gruden to Mississippi for WR Eldred Milton, a 3rd round pick
(MOB) and a 7th round pick.
to Mississippi where he might get a chance to compete with QB Billy
Dicken as the Fire Dogs starter. Fargo gets an early 3rd round draft
pick, a Mississippi 7th round pick and a seldom used but exposive
receiver in Milton.
LB Jason Belvins to Portland for a 2nd round pick
a great LB in Blevins.. should give Portland a great new look defense
with Blevins and McBride (from earlier Louisana trade).
trades DT Gary Costar to Portland for a 6th round pick (GBY).
heads to the armpit of the US (Porland)
two 2nd round picks (MOB and COL) and a 3rd round pick (LOU) to
Black Hills for FB King and C Oliver.

C Earl Oliver.

a younger lineman.

Bay's 5th round pick.
trades C Chris Enneking, their 2nd round pick in 2003 and 4th rounder
in 2004 for Fort Wayne's 1st round pick in 2003.
gives up a first round draft pick for a later 2nd round pick, a
2004 pick and Center Chris Enneking.
trades LB Sean McBride to Portland for LB Derrell Merriweather and
a 4th round pick.
LB Sean McBride, who anchored the Bayou Beast defense in 2002. McBride
has 235 tackles and 21.0 sacks in his career. Louisiana gets LB
Derrell Merriweather (36 tackles, 3.0 sacks in career) and a much
needed draft pick, as the Bayou Beast now have two 4th round picks.
trades RB Bo Wright, two 6th and two 7th round draft picks to Steel
Valley for QB Josh Leudtke and WR Kalen Deboer.
Green Bay seems
to be Mr. Lucky with their second straight trade - this time aquiring
QB Leudtke and WR DeBoer. Luedtke now competes with Fuentes and
Bryant at QB. DeBoer will get some serious playing time for the
Bombers. Wright has one rush for two yards and two tackles in his
20 game career.
Trades TE Klaika Rucker, DE Mike Clark and Portland's 3rd Round
Pick to Fort Wayne for DE Eddie Storm, DB Ronnie Smith and a 6th
to Green Bay, atleast for this season and next... DE Eddie Storm
is coming off a career season with his 37 tackles and 12.0 sacks
while CB Ronnie Smith has nearly averaged 85 tackles and 2 interceptions
the past 3 seasons. Fort Wayne gets a well traveled, but able TE
in Rucker who has averaged 49 catches the past two years. DE Mike
Clark is a young up-and-coming Defensive lineman, but has yet to
put up the numbers as he has 6 career tackles and 3.0 sacks in two
seasons. Down the road, Clark could be a force and the earlier pick
could pay dividends this year or next.
QB Johnny Johnson to Wichita for a first round draft pick
- long time veteran QB Johnny Johnson heads to Wichita in exchange
for a first round draft pick. With the addition of Johnson, the
Warlords might have solved their weakness at QB.
trades a 4th round pick to Steel Valley for veterans' S Don Harris
and Courtney Dinkins.
gets some veteran leadership at the DB position by trading for S
Don Harris (305 career tackles and 3 interceptions) and S Courtney
Dinkins (79 career tackles and 3 sacks). The Smash is looking to
unload some veterans and hope a 4th round pick will help in the
trades QB Tim Lester to Mobile a 3rd round pick
to Mobile where he will be given a chance to battle for the starting
job with veteran Johnny Johnson.
trades HB Willie Cannon, TE Randall Lane and CB Jack Prall to Dayton
for HB Andre Bowden, TE Magic Benton and a 4th round pick
to get the better part of this deal by getting a young and tough
Bowden, a top-notch TE in Benton and a pick for Cannon, Lane and
