But I'm hearing Rooneys definitely want him gone.

Don't know who the 'Deuce' is, he's referring too....
the 'Deuce' is Art II. Wexell is pretty on it with his reporting. This is the first time I have really heard him start mentioning that a trade is possible. Up to this point he has stated that the Rooney's were furious but that they would not trade Ben. For him to be reporting this it is probably true they are trying to shop Ben.

It is really starting to look like Ben is too toxic for the rest of the NFL at this point.
