Fan Controlled Football (FCF) just wrapped up their 4th week of action, and there’s some big news coming out of the camp. Today, the league announced the first trade in league history, and it spans three franchises; the Beasts, Knights and Zappers.
It was huge news when FCF announced that Terrell Owens would be returning to football prior to the beginning of season v2.0. Now, the legendary wide receiver is moving to a new team.
Owens will depart the Zappers and move over to the Knights of Degen, with the team receiving quarterback Jason Stewart, receiver Isiah King and Picks 5 & 12 this week.
The FCF team owners really came out swinging for the first trade in league history, and TO will have a chance to score some more points for another franchise before he heads back to retirement.

TERRELL OWENS TRADED TO KNIGHTS OF DEGEN AS PART OF A 3 TEAM TRADE
The first trade in FCF history has been agreed to and it’s quite juicy! The owners of the Beasts, Knights and Zappers have aligned on a three way trade that would include a mix of player and pick swaps including:
Trade – QB Dentarrius Yon + WR Isiah King
Receive – WR Terrell Owens + WR Jacoby Herring
Trade – WR Terrell Owens + Picks 1 & 16 this week
Receive – QB Jason Stewart, WR Isiah King + Picks 5 & 12 this week
Trade – QB Jason Stewart + WR Jacoby Herring + Picks 5 & 12 this week
Receive – QB Dentarrius Yon + Picks 1 & 16 this week
Specifically this is how each ownership group looks at it:
Knights – have a solid squad but need WR depth and this helps bring two starting level WRs to add firepower for Ed Crouch as we take on the top team in the league
Zappers – with the injury to Kelly Bryant and Johnny Manziel’s spotty attendance, we need a QB to have any chance to climb back into contention the last few weeks. Stew is the best available QB out there and King is a solid WR to play alongside Terrance Williams.
Beasts – fans have rallied for Yon and we can formally lock him in, while also jumping above the GBz in the draft before our critical head to head matchup with a potential playoff spot on the line this week.
But this is Fan Controlled Football – so while the owners have agreed to this trade the fans have the power to veto it.
Each team will have a vote to accept the trade and if a 70% supermajority of the fans reject it, then the trade will not go through.
As a league, we are in support of this trade as we believe it will help maintain competitive balance and that each team – and the players involve – all benefit from these moves… plus how awesome is it that our first trade ever is a 3 team deal with TO, a pair of QBs and a pick swap!?!
For any future potential trades this regular season we will follow a similar veto vote format – but when it comes time for the playoffs any potential moves will be limited to votes by only those who are in the top 10 on each team’s leaderboard for this season… this may be Fan Controlled Football, but just like the players and teams on the field, not all fans are created equal – so get your play call on and make sure you lock in one of those top spots for your squad!
