Bly Trade Down to Three Possible Teams

I expect Dre' Bly to be traded within the next 72 hours as a deal just feels like it's coming.  So far, we've really only heard about the Broncos as serious candidates in making a trade to acquire Bly, but now two other teams are on the final list.

Washington also is one of three teams bidding for Detroit's disgruntled cornerback Dre' Bly.

Within the next few days, Bly should be dealt to either Washington, New Orleans or Denver. Right now, the next move belongs to Lions general manager Matt Millen, who must decide which team is offering the most in compensation. But Bly should be somewhere else in the coming days.

If Millen opts to make the trade with Denver, then I'd expect to get a third round pick along with a player.  That player would probably be running back Tatum Bell or right tackle George Foster. I'm really not sure if Washington would make this deal as they really have a limited amount of draft picks to work with, but I have heard about them getting Bly for a month or so now.  Finally, New Orleans I really have no idea about as their name just came into play today.

Keep it here for the latest on Dre' Bly to see where he ends up as a deal will likely be coming very soon.
