“Though there were no reports of Akers himself requesting a trade, there was trade chatter aplenty ahead of Tuesday’s trade deadline.

“It feel good, man, to the touch quarterback,” Floyd said postgame last week. “I wish we would’ve won, though, it would have been even better. But yeah, man, it felt good to touch the quarterback, I ain’t going to lie to you. But the loss takes a little bit out of it. Got to get better.”
