Former Badgers Changing Teams

Badger One:

Chambers headed to Chargers in trade with Dolphins

SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers acquired wide receiver Chris Chambers from the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday in exchange for a 2008 second-round draft pick.
That's a fine move on the Chargers' part, if you ask me.

Badger Two:

Help on the Way: (Buccaneers) Swing Deal for RB Bennett

Bennett, the former Wisconsin football and track star, first entered the NFL as a first-round draft pick (27th overall) of the Vikings in 2001. He got off to a prolific start in his first two seasons, playing in and starting 29 games and racking up 1,978 rushing yards, 66 receptions and nine total touchdowns. Bennett’s career-best campaign came in 2002, when he gained 1,296 yards on 255 carries, averaging 5.1 yards per tote and scoring five touchdowns. Included in that was an 85-yard touchdown run against the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium...

At Wisconsin, Bennett rushed for 1,979 yards in just 23 games, averaging 5.4 yards per carry and scoring 15 touchdowns. Most of that came during an extremely prolific junior season, his last with the Badgers, in which he gained 1,681 yards in 11 games. Bennett was also a force on Wisconsin’s track team, winning the Big Ten’s indoor 60-meter and 200-meter and outdoor 100-meter and 200-meter titles in 2000.
