The NFL trade deadline may be a bit more exciting than in years past. A new rule has been put into play, moving the deadline back two weeks to after games in Week 8.
We have reached the end of Week 6, and the trading period is normally over at this point. The new rule will give teams time to figure out which direction they are headed before making a move.
This is great for a team like the Arizona Cardinals, who have lost four key players for an extended period of time due to injury.
They are tied for first place in the NFC West at 4-2, but have a couple of issues to address to become a playoff team.
Arizona could be looking to make a couple of moves between now and Week 8. Here are five realistic transactions that the Cardinals could make over the next two weeks.
