Tuesday Tidbits You Might Have Missed

The Atlanta Falcons have traded suspended wide receiver Calvin Ridley to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Falcons will get in return a 2023 5th round pick and a 2024 2nd rounder.

The trade is conditional pending player physicals.
The Pittsburg Steelers have traded wide receiver Chase Claypool to the Chicago Bears in return for a 2023 2nd round pick.

The Indianapolis Colts let go of their Offensive Coordinator, Marcus Brady, after a tough start to the season where they rank 30th in the NFL for scoring with 16.1 points per game.
Steve Nash and the Brooklyn Nets parted ways officially on Tuesday. The Hall of Fame point guard was hired by Brooklyn in 2020. He as certainly dealt with is fair share of drama having to head up a team lead by Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Rumors now circulating that they have their eye on suspended Boston Celtics coach Udoka.
Darius Garland, all-star point guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers participated in his first full-contact practice since he suffered a serious left eye injury. The team is hopeful that he could return Wednesday night in their game against the Boston Celtics. Garland has been out for 5 games since he was accidentally poked in the eye by Toronto's Gary Trent Jr. and suffered a serious cut to his inner eyelid.
The Phoenix Suns have powered their way to a 5th straight win. Cam Johnson scored 29 points, made seven 3-pointers and the Suns beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 116-107.
