Take the agent: Kareem Hunt and the other players who were supposed to be dealt before the trade deadline

10 record trades were made on the day of the trading deadline. In particular, the Dolphins sent the return of Chase Edmunds, the 2023 first-round pick and 2024 fourth-round pick to the Broncos for Rashed Edge Bradley Chubb and the 2025 fifth-round pick.

A rare intradivision trade has occurred. TJ Hockenson is not leaving NFC North. The Vikings, who scored 6-1, traded a 2023 second-round pick and a 2024 third-round pick to Detroit for the former Pro Bowler, a 2023 fourth-round pick and a conditional 2024 fourth-round pick.

Here are three other deals that should have been explored before the deadline that may have improved the teams’ chances of making the post-season. The financial ramifications of these moves were highlighted. The salary cap space is based on NFLPA data.

The earning team will need enough salary space to accommodate the remainder of the player’s current salary. Since deals were to occur after week eight, the acquiring team will be responsible for 10/18 of the player’s 2022 base salary and any other applicable salary components of their contract.

Deals cannot be executed again until the league year 2023 begins on March 15.

  • Trade offset: 2023 Choosing the fourth round and 2024 Choosing the sixth round
  • Remaining salary for 2022: $62,222 (Texas salary cap savings for 2022)
  • Packers Room 2022: $6.4277 million
  • Texas 2023 Dead Money: $16,220,741 ($10,389,629) salary cap savings

Making moves on a rolling deadline is uncharacteristic for packers as they rely primarily on a draft, development, and existing philosophy. An attempt was made to satisfy a stark need at a wide receiver by squeezing Chase Claypool. The Steelers distributed the Claypool to the Bears in the 2023 second round.

The Cowboys and Texans, who are vying for the first overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft with a 1-5-1 record, discussed the Brandin Cooks deal until the trade deadline. Texas Chefs signed a two-year extension in April, which runs through the 2024 season, averaging $20 million a year. The chefs are set to make $35 million over the next two years. His base salary of $18 million for 2023 that was fully guaranteed in the extension was a problem.

Texans reportedly wanted to pick the chefs for the second round. His remaining contract, notably the salary guarantee, should have made the trade compensation less than the 2023 third-round pick, and 2023 Giants’ sixth-round selection from the Chiefs to the 2021 first-round pick (20th overall) Cadarius Tony, who is on Cost-controlled entry-level contract.

Adding two cooks, dissatisfied with Texans not trading him, would have been challenging from a salary cap point of view due to the salary guarantee. The Packers already have $222.7 million in 2023 cap commitments with 47 players under contract.

Some flexibility in that approach is warranted when 38-year-old Aaron Rodgers is in the middle on his only $50 million-a-year NFL contract, which was signed in March. With a 3-5 record, the Packers have already lost more games than they did in 2021. Despite the record, the Packers aren’t in the rebuilding mode like the Bears.

The chef, 29, has been traded three times during his career. His last deal was in 2020 when the Texans got him and the 2022 Rams’ fourth-round pick for the 2020 second-round pick. The Chefs were productive wherever he played. He collected 1,000 yards in one season with the Saints, Patriots, Rams and Texas.

  • Trade offset: 2023 Compensatory Fifth Round Pick and RB Cam Akers
  • Hunt’s remaining salary for 2022: $3.1 million
  • Akers Remaining Salary for 2022: $650,659
  • Browns 2022 salary cap room: $33.23 million (2,449,341 salary cap savings)
  • Salary cap room 2022 Ramez: $4,515,663 ($2,449,341 for salary cap expenses)
  • Browns 2023 dead money: None (Expired Contract)
  • Dead Rams Money 2023: $512,371 ($1,451,779 salary cap savings)

Upgrading in running was on Ramez’s radar screen. A race was held at Christian McCaffrey two weeks ago but the rams were outbid by the 49ers. The Rams are ranked 31st in the NFL in lunging (68.4 yards per game) and yards per carry (3.3).

Brown was reportedly willing to ditch Hunt in the fourth-round pick. Hunt was probably the next best option to run.

The requested compensation draft did not reflect the circulating trade market. The Jets have acquired James Robinson for a conditional 2023 sixth-round pick that could become a fifth-round pick. 49 players dealt Jeff Wilson to the Dolphins in the 2023 fifth round. The Bills got the Colts’ Nyheim Hines to undo Zack Moss and a conditional sixth-round 2023 selection that could rise to a fifth-round pick.

The Rams did not have a 2023 fourth-round pick due to getting Sony Michel from the Patriots in a 2021 pre-season deal. The 2023 fifth-round pick went to the Browns for Troy Hill’s back during this year’s draft. Despite this, the Rams are expected to receive two picks from the 2023 compensatory fifth round.

Hunt, who requested a pre-season deal because Brown refused to extend his contract, is expected to leave on free agency after the season. It is envisaged that Brown could get a compensating fourth round for 2024 for Hunt’s impending departure depending on the contract he signs in the open market.

Unhappy Akers have no desire to continue playing with the Rams. He could have provided the Browns with depth behind behind Nick Chubb next season. Akers contract in 2023 for $1,451,779, while contracts for Hunt and D’Ernest Johnson are expiring.

Getting a Hunt won’t solve all Rams’ problems. The offensive line could be a bigger concern and there was a lack of continuous passing rush. The Rams, who have a 3-4 record, could become the first Super Bowl winner to miss the playoffs since the Broncos in 2016.

  • Trade offset: 2023 Conditional selection in the sixth round (the fifth player if the Giants win the playoff)
  • Remaining salary for 2022: $575,000 (Titans 2022 salary cap savings)
  • Giants salary cap room 2022: $3,118,856
  • Titans 2023 Dead Money: $3.31 million (2023 and 2024 years contract voiding)

The Giants’ 6-2 record is one of the biggest surprises of the 2022 season. Daniel Bellinger has been selected in the fourth round indefinitely after sustaining an eye injury in Week Seven against Jaguar, leaving a hole in the court end. Chris Mayarik and Tanner Hudson are the other narrow ends on the list.

Austin Hopper doesn’t seem to be a good fit for the Tennessee sprint-centric offense. Jeff Swim leads the tight Titans in playing time with 65.2%.

Hooper signed a one-year, $6 million deal, which included a $4.965 million signing bonus, to add a dimension to the Tennessee crime that went missing in 2021 after Juno Smith left for the Patriots on free agency. Outside of getting three high-game passes for 56 yards in the Week 7 win over the Colts, Hopper’s impact was minimal. He has 10 catches (on 15 goals) for 116 yards in seven games. It’s Hopper’s slowest start to the season since he was a rookie in 2016.

The Titans have four narrow ends on the menu. Hopper’s departure could have opened the door for Chigozim Okonkwo being selected in the 2022 fourth round, for more playing time.
