There is only a short time left before the trade deadline in the NFL. On Tuesday, teams have until 4 p.m. Eastern Time to make trades, which means that general managers and front office workers from all 30 clubs will be on the phone making deals until the deadline passes. Some teams will do this in the hopes of improving their club in the near future and helping them win the Super Bowl, while other teams will do this in the hopes of better positioning themselves to compete in the upcoming seasons.
This time of year is usually fascinating from a variety of different perspectives, and this year is no exception. Not only is it possible that teams will trade away outstanding players, but the moves that teams make also give us an idea of how they feel about themselves roughly halfway through the season. If they are buying, it indicates that they believe they are only missing one or two pieces before they can make a run at the championship. Should they be purchased, the remainder of the season can be ruined as a result.
As the clock ticks down to the deadline, please allow this to serve as your central location for information regarding the most recent rumors’ and deals involving players in the NFL.
