Three stars that could on the move before the NFL trade deadline

 has looked at three players that could be traded before the deadline in two weeks

The NFL trade deadline is fast approaching and with the contenders starting to separate themselves, there could be some talented players finding themselves lining up for a new team before the October 29 deadline passes.

Von Miller

Strong rumours coming from Philadelphia suggest this could be a goer. The price will be pretty big for one of the best pass rushers in the game and he is due big money through 2021, but I feel the Broncos would like extra picks in this years draft to perhaps package with their own picks to finally secure the quarterback they so desperately need. Drew Lock was taken in the second round of the 2019 draft but the team are far from tied to him if there is an opportunity in what is seen as a more talented quarterback group in 2020.

Patrick Peterson

The former All-Pro cornerback is currently serving a six game suspension for violating the leagues PED policy. On what is a team lacking in talent he is one of the few valuable trade pieces the Cardinals could use to start rebuilding their offence. They have the QB in place and now they need to start filling out some more skill positions. Look for the Eagles, Seahawks & Chiefs to be interested here.

Leonard Williams

The 2015 sixth overall pick has never quite lived up to the expectations the Jets had when they drafted him. Sure he’s been good but he hasn’t been the game wrecking sack machine you’re after from a sixth overall pick. He’s set to make $14.2m this season which could put off a few teams but interest is believed to be high. I’d be looking at the Jets getting back at best a first round pick but more realistically it could look very similar to the deal the Rams made to get Dante Fowler last year which ended up being a 3rd and a 5th round pick

Will not be moving

Someone who won’t be getting traded however is AJ Green. Despite the Bengals being god awful this season and Green being injured, the team have never traded away star players and that’s mainly because when Green does return he will ensure bums on seats. Something that’s seemingly more valuable to the ownership than a winning team.

San Francisco 49ers @ Los Angeles Rams Preview

Josh Capps (@JCapps_) believes the running backs will decide this big battle in the NFC West

When people saw this week 6 schedule meeting in Los Angeles, not many would have expected the visitors to be the ones coming in unbeaten for the NFC West clash. After two very strong and positive years under Sean McVay, the LA Rams have some-what found it difficult to get going in 2019. Winning their first three games this season, it almost looked like we were in for a carbon copy of what we have seen before, but a narrow defeat last Thursday due to a missed field goal late on, and a surprising heavy defeat at home to the Bucs back to back have dented that positive record. The 49ers and Garoppolo maintained a perfect record with a convincing win on Monday Night Football, meaning only two quarterbacks went unbeaten into Week six, Brady and Garoppolo. Coincidence, I think not! The strong performances of tight end George Kittle and running back Matt Breida are helping drive this 49ers down the field each week, scoring plenty of points in the meantime. The feeling is San Francisco will rely more on their number 1 ranked rushing offence with Breida showing his pace on Monday night, and averaging over 100 yards more per game on the ground than the Rams, it may seem too obvious. The Rams are leaking too many points this season, allowing 26.8 per game, and the task won’t get any easier coming up against a strong 49ers offence. Everything suggests a high scoring tie in Los Angeles with the running backs being key on who takes home the W.

Ones to Watch

San Francisco: Matt Breida – Cheetah like pace tore the Browns apart on Monday, expect more of the same when Kittle isn’t catching the ball. Los Angeles: Malcolm Brown – With Todd Gurley looking set to miss the game, the pressure will be on Brown to get it done on the ground for the Rams

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Los Angeles Chargers preview

Markr1991 believes that Devlin Hodges will shock the NFL community and get the Steelers their second win of the season.

In what should have been a battle of two future Hall of Fame quarterbacks drafted in the same year, instead this game will be played out between one shot caller nearing retirement and another getting his first career start. Not the quarterback battle we wanted but one I can get behind. read more

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Carolina Panthers preview

Dave Gray (@djg23) believes this one is almost too close to call and could come down to which of the star running backs performs best

This one sees a battle of two young backup quarterbacks that some would argue are outperforming their more experienced and certainly higher paid number ones.

Gardner Minshew, a sixth round rookie, has been something of a revelation since taking over from the injured Nick Foles. He led a big comeback in their last game against the Broncos and there is already talk about whether Foles will ever get the job back that he held for less than a quarter. read more

Chicago Bears @ Oakland Raiders preview

Dave Gray (@djg23) believes Khalil Mack and the Bears defence will put on a show in London

The 2019 International Series kicks off with the first ever NFL game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The Raiders host the Bears in what looks like an interesting match-up, particularly with Khalil Mack going up against his old team for the first time since being traded just over a year ago. read more

New England Patriots @ Washington Redskins Preview

Josh Capps (@jcapps_) believes the Patriots defence will give Colt McCoy a tough time as he takes over as starting quarterback for the Redskins

It doesn’t look good for Washington heading into this weekend’s visit of New England but they will be hopeful of another weak offensive showing from the Patriots. Just 150 yards posted by Tom Brady last week was his lowest figure this season but was enough to get past the Bills with a huge helping hand from the ever impressive defence. Washington are still looking for their first victory in 2019 and last week’s trip to New Jersey was far from impressive. read more
