The October 30 NFL trade deadline is quickly approaching, and there are several big-name players who could be on the move before it passes.
Unlike in the NBA or MLB, the NFL trade deadline doesn’t usually have the glitz and glamour of big-name trades and late-season power shifts. However, 2012 is the first season the deadline has been moved to Week 8.
Teams may have a better feeling for their strengths, weaknesses and chances of competing down the stretch. There’s also been more time for injuries to alter and define team’s fates.
Trades can immediately tend those wounds and allow contending teams to fill in those gaps.
Let’s take a look at some of the biggest names and what could potentially be holding up their movement before the deadline.
