In a surprising Veteran's Day Move, the Roscoe Village Hot Dogs have traded star wideout Reggie Wayne to The Rockpile for running back Thomas Jones.
"This is all about shaking things up", said Hot Dogs GM PG, "what we're doing right now clearly isn't working, our running game is non-existent".
"At 2-7, I had to", declared Rockpile GM Bronco Mike, "I have the #2 rushing offense but am last in receiving, so I was in a position to make the move".
Thomas Jones has amassed 704 rushing yards with 7 touchdowns this season (with 433 of those yards coming in his last 3 games). Reggie Wayne has 753 yards receiving, finding the end zone 6 times thus far.
With the Roscoe Village Hot Dogs posting a 3-6 record and The Rockpile at 2-7, the trade is being looked at as a last ditch effort to save their respective seasons.
"It's now or never, if we don't start winning some ball games, we can kiss the playoffs goodbye", quipped PG.
