10 Possible Trades Before the NFL Trade Deadline
The 2018 NFL season has been entertaining, to say the least. There have been entertaining games, surprising starts on both ends of the spectrum, and some big trades as well. That has led to the belief that this year’s NFL trade deadline may end up being the busiest ever.
Already, the NFL has seen the Oakland Raiders rock the league with two major trades. Just ahead of the start of the 2018 season, the Raiders pulled the trigger on a blockbuster deal that sent Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears. On Monday, they decided to trade star wide receiver Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys.
Looking ahead at the upcoming trade deadline, there are plenty of teams that could be buyers and many that will look to sell their talent for the right price. It is never easy to predict a trade deadline in any sport. That being said, there are a few players who could be on their way out of town if the right offer is made.
Let’s go ahead and take a look at 10 potential trades that could be made ahead of the 2018 NFL trade deadline.
10. Jacksonville Jaguars acquire Ryan Fitzpatrick
One team that could use an upgrade at the quarterback position is the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have seen Blake Bortles struggle mightily this season. If they want to go out and acquire a veteran starter, Ryan Fitzpatrick could be a good option. Fitzpatrick had a huge start to the season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and could be available for a very friendly price tag with Jameis Winston back as the starter.
9. Colts make a move for LeSean McCoy
Chris Ballard has been aggressive since becoming the Indianapolis Colts’ general manager and acquiring LeSean McCoy would make a lot of sense. Indianapolis would have McCoy for the rest of this season and next year and would take a lot of pressure off of Andrew Luck by acquiring a star running back. Buffalo is in full rebuilding mode and getting some value for McCoy while they can would be a good idea.
