Official 2009 NFL Trade Deadline Open Thread

I'll be perfectly honest: I really don't see anything of substance happening at the NFL trade deadline today.  The NFL trade deadline is 1pm today, but due to the many issues relating to the salary cap with trades, it is never nearly as busy as the MLB trading deadline.  Throw in the fact that it's rather early in the season and that's just one more reason it's not crazy busy.

Nonetheless, rumors continually fly about potential trades.  As this FanShot pointed out, KNBR claimed the 49ers might be interested in Cleveland Browns DE Corey Williams and Kansas City Chiefs LB Derek Johnson.  There have also been plenty of rumors (not connected to the 49ers about Terrell Owens, Brady Quinn, Dwayne Bowe, Josh Cribbs and many others.  John Clayton had a quick rundown on some of the rumors being tossed around.

So will anything happen?  We've got an official FanPost for the deadline and any offseason acquisitions.  Given that today is in fact the trade deadline, it makes sense to separate that out from the FanPost here on the front page.  If the 49ers do make a trade we'll certainly have plenty of coverage on it, but I'm not holding my breath.  Feel free to post any and all rumors here leading up through 1pm pacific time.  In the meantime, if you missed it, Florida Danny has his latest player ranking discussion for your reading pleasure.
