Goodhines: No comment on Soul, Sharks trade speculation

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Philadelphia Soul and the Jacksonville Sharks have been the best teams in the American Conference in the Arena Football League these past two years.

They will likely head into the 2014 season, as the top two teams, as well. They have been far superior than the rest within the American Conference.



But the two teams have made a trade in order to improve their teams for the upcoming season. An official announcement will come at 6 pm eastern after the AFL approves the trade.

Right now, Soul general manager Tom Goodhines said he has no comment until the league approves the trade.

The Sharks reportedly have received two players in the trade. It is not clear yet who will be involved in the deal, as neither team will comment on the coming trade.

Also, it is not clear if the trade came after the dispersal draft, which was held today. The Chicago Rush and the Utah Blaze have ceased operations, while the Orlando Predators could also leave the league in the future.

It is the first trade between the two teams in two years. In their last trade, the Soul acquired T.J. Langley in 2011 for Micheaux Robinson.

Both teams have faced each other in back-to-back American Conference Championship game. The Soul won both games, before losing the past two ArenaBowl games.

The Soul are looking to advance to their third straight American Conference Championship game this season.
