NFL Trade Deadline Results – Latest Trade News
Deadline day was much quieter than past years. Only one trade was made on Tuesday – Rams Aqib Talib was traded to the Miami Dolphins – but there has been many trades over the weeks since August.
Players that were expected to be on the move like Chris Harris Jr., Jamal Adams, Trent Williams and Leveon Bell stayed pat on Tuesday. However, other good players were traded and draft picks swapped teams throughout the weeks. Here are some of the trades that happened over the last few weeks.
Former New York Jets defensive end Leonard Williams was traded to the New York Giants for a 2020 third round pick and 2021 fifth round pick.
Former New England Patriots defensive end Michael Bennett was traded to the Dallas Cowboys for a seventh round pick that can turn into a sixth rounder.
Former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu was traded to the Patriots for a 2020 second round pick.
Former Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and a 2020 fifth round pick was traded to the San Francisco 49ers for a 2020 third and fourth round pick.
Former Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey was traded to the Los Angeles Rams for a 2020 first-round pick, a 2021 first-round pick, and a 2021 fourth-round pick.
Former Rams cornerback Aqib Talib and a 2020 fifth round pick was traded to the Dolphins for a future pick to be named later.
Trades have become more and more common in the NFL these past few seasons to the point that the deadline isn’t the biggest event for trades. They happen gradually much more throughout the season rather than locked into one big day of the year. The next time teams can trade will be during the new NFL season, March 18, 2020.
