Building an NFL Trade Deadline Wish List for the Washington Redskins

Right now, the Redskins sit two games behind the Giants for first place in the NFC East, and it's apparent that the team needs some help.

Injuries have decimated this team, especially on the defensive side of the ball, and with the trade deadline looming on October 30th, there are some moves to be made.

Now while all of these may not be realistic, this is a wish list for the Redskins and their fans on possible players to acquire that are rumored to be on the trading block. Some would make a huge impact, while others would fit in quite nicely as role players.

Wes Welker (New England Patriots), Greg Jennings (Green Bay Packers), Dwayne Bowe (Kansas City Chiefs)

Obviously, if one of these would be possible, it's the Bowe deal. He wants out of Kansas City in the worst possible way, and no one can really blame him.

With Pierre Garcon out and Leonard Hankerson and Josh Morgan not ready to step up in his absence, a playmaker needs to step in. Jennings wouldn't really be the top idea since he has had his own injury struggles, but if he were brought in, he could be a valuable asset.

Wes Welker looks like he is starting to get back in good graces with the Patriots organization, and a trade to separate him and Tom Brady doesn't look likely. Again, this is a wish list.

Chris Cooley (Free Agent)

Alright, so he's not someone that the Redskins can trade for, but with Fred Davis out for the season, the Redskins need him back in right away.

Daniel Fells (New England Patriots) and John Carlson (Minnesota Vikings)

Unfortunately Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski are pretty well tied into the Patriots team, but Daniel Fells is a name that the Redskins could acquire on the tight end market to help fill the need without Davis.

As for Carlson, it seems like the Vikings don't have many plans for him. They already have another tight end from Notre Dame in Kyle Rudolph that they seem to be satisfied with.

Asante Samuel (Atlanta Falcons), Nate Clements (Cincinnati Bengals) and Marcus Trufant (Seattle Seahawks)

I can hear a lot of people grumbling over the fact that all three are a little old, a little overpaid, and a little overrated. It doesn't really matter, though. The Redskins secondary just needs bodies. Even if it is in just an overpriced nickleback situation. Even if the Redskins defense is worse than Nickelback's music.

Kavell Conner (Indianapolis Colts)

This is a valuable depth move that the Redskins could use if London Fletcher misses significant time. Lorenzo Alexander, Keenan Robinson and Perry Riley can all fit in, but there still needs to be someone behind them.
