The NFL deal deadline is two days, and there have already been five players dealt in the past two weeks, including big names like Christian McCaffrey, James Robinson and Robert Quinn.
Who else could be on the move before the 4pm EST deadline on Tuesday?
Here’s the latest news on some of the names to watch, according to multiple sources:
Other teams believe Chubb is the most likely to trade in this group, with a potential payout equal to a first-round pick and more. Present and listen to Denver’s specials for the Pro Bowl defender, who has 5.5 sacks this season. But sources say the Broncos aren’t inclined to take Chubb — or Jeudy and Hamler for that matter — unless they get the perfect show. Chubb’s trade will also be complicated because a new team giving up this type of venture capital will definitely want (and need) a contract extension as well (Chubb is currently in the final year of his rookie contract). The Broncos, who lost starter Tim Patrick in training camp to a ruptured AFC Champions League, are counting on Jodi and Humler as they try to push back struggling full-back Russell Wilson. On the other hand, the talented and athletic Okwuegbunam has been the subject of commercial calls since last spring and has been inactive for the past two weeks. With only seven catches for 50 yards, the purchase price of the Okwuegbunam wouldn’t be high.
Jacksonville has had plenty of calls about Allen, the No. 7 overall pick in the 2019 draft. But while the interest from teams that wanted him was there, Jaguar’s team is not expected to handle outstanding passes. Allen remains an essential and valuable part of their future. He’s a player that Jacksonville wants to keep, rather than trade and then try to replace. He’ll be owed just $10.892 million in 2023 on his fifth-year option, and he’s due for a major rollover soon.
New Orleans is not making a quick sale. But entering Sunday’s 2-5 game against the Raiders and without a 2023 first-round pick (the Eagles were traded an extra first in the 2022 draft), it makes sense to listen to anything. Sources say general manager Mickey Loomis wants at least a package similar to what the Panthers got for McCaffrey (second, third and fourth round transfers in 2023 plus a fifth player in 2024) to part with Camara, who owes only $575,000 for the rest of this season, Thanks to a contract restructuring in March, and signed through to the 2025 season. Camara’s trading of Saints will leave $14.372 million dead on the 2023 salary cap. This is actually less punitive than other veterans like Cameron Jordan and Michael Thomas, complicating any consideration of trading away about these players.
Sources say the Texans have made calls centering on the veteran receiver, and there has been some interest at the league level. He will be one of the main beneficiaries of the trade talks. There is currently no deal in place for the chefs, and he will likely remain in Houston after Tuesday, but those talks are continuing. The chefs are worth less than $1 million in salary and bonuses the rest of this season, but they also have $18 million fully guaranteed for the 2023 season.
The Patriots signed both receivers in their massive 2021 free agency, but have since added DeVante Parker and Tyquan Thornton to pair up with Jakobi Meyers. Simply put, there are not enough footballs to go around to necessitate player retention. Bourne is worth about $2.36 million for the rest of the 2022 season, while Agholor is worth $5.55 million, making moving Agholor a little more difficult. Wynn, a first-round pick in the 2018 draft, plays the Year 5 option and is likely available at the right price. He’s worth $5.785 million for the rest of the season.
The price on the uber-talented aisle is high, with Panthers turning down an offer of two premium picks recently. Their plan is to keep and extend him – they’ve already chosen the fifth-year option for $16.012 million in 2023 – in part to make sure the next coach has plenty of talent to work with. However, there is a price to everything, and GM Scott Fetterer always takes calls. Can a team raise the price to the point where Witterer would have no choice in trading Burns? There are two days to find out.
