The NFL trade deadline is on Tuesday, October 31 at 4 p.m. ET and even though teams continue to remain silent regarding potential key moves, it’s possible there’s a historic amount of trades made.
Last year, 10 trades were made on the November 1 time limit, the most all time on NFL trade deadline day. If the trend continues, the following blockbuster moves could probably steal the headlines should they finalize.
Carolina Panthers running back Miles Sanders arrived from the Philadelphia Eagles in the offseason via free agency. He hasn’t lived up to the expectation and is battling a shoulder injury.
Panthers quarterback Bryce Young just won his first NFL career game and the franchise reportedly wants to find him another wide receiver.
Trading Sanders, who has seemingly lost the RB1 position to Chubba Hubbard, would likely be for a WR2 to partner with Adam Thielen.
Kirk Cousins’ replacement
Another blockbuster trade could be made by the Minnesota Vikings, whose starting quarterback, Kirk Cousins, is out for the season with an Achilles injury.
Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill is also out with injury, but Minnesota might make a move now to acquire him for a better price.
There are also a few free agent options such as Colt McCoy, Carson Wentz and Nick Foles.
Dallas Cowboys third-string QB Trey Lance, however, could become the Vikings’ new man under center in what would be a risky move for Minnesota.
Jerry Jeudy still on the trade block
The Denver Broncos are still listening to trades for wide receiver Jerry Jeudy despite head coach Sean Payton saying nobody is on the trade block.
Most coaches try to keep any trade talks private to avoid other teams interfering, so don’t be surprised if Jeudy is the first of many to get shipped out.
Jeudy is coming off his first touchdown catch in 10 games to help Denver defeat the Kansas City Chiefs for the first time in years.
Selling him right now might be the team’s best option because Courtland Sutton has improved a lot more this season.
Derrick Henry leaving Titans?
The most anticipated move around the league is Titans running back Derrick Henry, who believes he will be staying with the franchise.
Henry, however, could leave Tennessee if they receive an attractive trade package. Don’t rule anything out.
The Miami Dolphins might have the correct pieces to make a move for Henry in a “win now” mentality.
Dolphins rookie RB De’Von Achane was placed on injured reserve (IR) ahead of Week 6 and Raheem Mostert continues to be inconsistent. Adding Henry would be a game-changer. Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams is another name to watch, especially after his sideline outburst on Monday Night Football.
