When is the 2020 NFL trade deadline?

Football Team

Week 6 of the NFL season is here, meaning the NFL trade deadline is just a couple of weeks away.

The 2020 season has been riddled with injuries, as many star players have been forced to miss time early on. With the high number of injuries that have occurred thus far, it's worth wondering if teams are more likely to strike a deal this season to fill those voids.

Last year, we saw several big names such as Jalen Ramsey, Kenyan Drake, Emmanuel Sanders, Mohamed Sanu and Leonard Williams all find new homes before the deadline.

With just under three weeks to go until the deadline, there's plenty to sort out. Here's everything you need to know:

2020 NFL Trade Deadline Information

When: November 3, 2020

Time: All trades must be completed by the sharp 4 p.m. EST deadline


Players who could be on the Trade Block

  • A.J. Green, WR, Cincinnati Bengals: Green, 32, is playing under the franchise tag with the Bengals after missing all of 2019 with a foot injury. The wide receiver has not clicked with rookie QB Joe Burrow, as Green has yet to top 100 yards in a game or score a touchdown yet this season. Between Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins, the Bengals have two young wideouts to grow with Burrow. Green's tenure in Cincinnati could be coming to a close.
  • Dwayne Haskins, QB, Washington Football Team: Haskins was benched in favor of Kyle Allen ahead of Week 5, setting up a bleak outlook for both his immediate and long-term future in Washington. If Washington has given up on Haskins as its long-term answer at quarterback, it would make sense for them to explore a trade before his value dips even more.
  • Ryan Kerrigan, DE/OLB, Washington Football Team: Kerrigan became Washington's all-time sacks leader this season, but has seen his snap count decrease plenty due to the talent of Montez Sweat and Chase Young. Even at age 32, Kerrigan could be a contributor for any team looking to contend in 2020.
  • David Njoku, TE, Cleveland Browns: Stuck behind Austin Hooper and rookie Harrison Bryant, Njoku informed the Browns earlier this week that he would like the club to explore a trade ahead of the Nov. 3 deadline. There are a bunch of teams, including Washington, that need tight end help and could greatly benefit from acquiring him.
  • Brandon Cooks/Kenny Stills, WR, Houston Texans: After trading DeAndre Hopkins tis past offseason, the Texans hoped the quartlet of Cooks, Stills, Will Fuller V and Randall Cobb could make up for the lost production. Thus far, the Texans offense has only started to click as of late, and the team currently sits at 1-5. For any contending team that could use a boost at wideout, Houston has multiple options.
  • Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Miami Dolphins: FitzMagic had been solid for the Dolphins this season, leading them to a 3-3 record. Yet, the club decided to surprisingly insert rookie Tua Tagovailoa as the starter this week, leaving the 38-year-old veteran "heartbroken." If Fitzpatrick wants another shot to be a starting QB elsewhere, it might have to come via trade.
  • Jabrill Peppers, S, New York Giants: Peppers is one of the Giants best players, and also one of the few that could be traded for multiple future assets. With New York expected to have a top-5 pick once again, it could make sense for Peppers to be moved.
