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.
NFL Deadline Tracker:
Oct. 29 - TRADE: The Rams have shipped CB Aqib Talib and a fifth-round pick to the Dolphins for a future draft selection, says ESPN. Talib is currently on the Injured Reserve with a rib injury.
Oct. 29 - The Redskins asked for Denzel Ward in return for Trent Williams, NFL Network reported. The original ask was understood to be a first-round pick, but the ask of Ward suggests Washington is looking for a more significant return.
Oct. 28 - Chargers running back Melvin Gordon, who held out from the team's first four games seeking a new contract, has been linked to both the Lions and Bills as possible trade destinations, according to NFL Network's Jeremy Fowler. Los Angeles would have to lower their asking price, however.
Oct. 28 - The Jaguars have no plans to trade quarterback Nick Foles, who has missed the team's last seven games with a broken collarbone. The emergence of rookie QB Gardner Minshew made some question whether the Jaguars would move on from Foles, but NFL Network's Jeremy Fowler reported the team wants to keep the former Super Bowl MVP.
Oct. 28 - After reportedly irritating teams by not listening on trade offers for disgruntled LT Trent Williams, the Redskins have changed course and are seeking suitors for a potential deal. NFL Network reports that the Browns are among teams interested, while Sports Illustrated says Washington is seeking a first-round pick in return for Williams.

Oct. 27 - Despite receiving several offers for TE Austin Hooper, the Falcons maintain that they won't trade him even though he's in the final year of his contract, reports ESPN.
