It's been an exciting week of trades in the NFL and that excitement continued on Wednesday when the Ravens sent fourth-year wide receiver David Reed to Indianapolis in exchange for Colts third-year running back Delone Carter.

Carter, who's headed to Baltimore, was a fourth-round pick by the Colts in the 2011 draft and played in 26 games during his two seasons with the team. The 26-year-old running back has totaled 499 yards and five rushing touchdowns on 133 career carries. 

Reed leaves Baltimore having made five catches for 66 yards in his three years with the Ravens. The former fifth-round pick also returns kickoffs, his career includes a ridiculously good 103-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in 2010, which you can see at the bottom of the page. 

The swap between Baltimore and Indianapolis is the third trade this week -- fourth if you count voided trades. 

On Monday, we saw the 49ers and Chiefs exchange first-round busts when San Francisco sent the 30th overall pick of the 2012 A.J. Jenkins to the Chiefs for the 26th overall pick of the 2011 draft, Jonathan Baldwin. 

The Seahawks tried to trade offensive lineman John Moffitt to the Browns on Monday for defensive end Brian Sanford, but the Browns voided the trade and Moffitt went back to Seattle. Only Moffitt never made it to Seattle because he was traded to Denver on Tuesday.
