Midway through the NFL season, there are several teams that can take advantage of the NFL Trade Deadline.
Many teams are better than even they may have anticipated heading into this year. Teams like the San Fransisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills, Detroit Lions and the Arizona Cardinals all of a sudden have the playoffs on their minds. As recently turned buyers before the NFL trade deadline, there could be some desperation-type moves with multiple picks involved.
On the flipside, underperforming teams will have the assets. The Miami Dolphins, Cincinnati Bengals, Washington Redskins and even the Atlanta Falcons will be selling, looking for a reset button. They will need draft picks to ensure they are not here next season.
Would even a team like the Baltimore Ravens just need a single piece to take them from good to great? Lots can happen and there is not a lot of time.
The NFL trade deadline is Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 4:00 p.m. ET.
