Ross Bell (@RossBell1984) 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.
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.
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.
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.
