Flurry of NFL trades go down; should Lions’ Eric Ebron be concerned? (Shutdown Corner)

Monday was a busy day in the NFL for trades, even if none of them involved major players. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded tight end Tim Wright to the Detroit Lions to give them another pass-catching tight end. But isn’t that what Eric Ebron, the 10th overall pick of the 2014 draft, was supposed to provide? [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] Wright got off to a nice start early last season with the New England Patriots after coming over in the Logan Mankins deal but was an afterthought down the title stretch. He was waived and claimed by the Bucs, who originally signed Wright after he went undrafted in 2013. Ebron isn’t in any trouble for a roster spot, but there is growing concern that he might never fulfill his massive potential — even a little more than a year into his tenure there. But Ebron seems rather unaffected by the news of the Wright deal or his status on the team. Lol..

Clark will provide the Texans with depth behind starters Duane Brown and Derek Newton after Clark was deemed a poor fit in Gary Kubiak’s offense in Denver.

The Jacksonville Jaguars traded Josh Scobee, who has been with the team since being a fifth-round pick in 2004, to the Steelers after the injury Garrett Hartley suffered was found to be more serious than expected. Hartley was signed during training camp after Shaun Suisham suffered a season-ending injury. As NFL teams start whittling their rosters down from 90 to 75 players on or before Tuesday, there might be a few more minor deals that happen. – – – – – – – Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.
