How the Landscape of the NFL Could Have Changed with 5 Trades

Will this be Greg Jennings' last year in Green Bay?

The NFL trade deadline was not a complete dud, with two trades happening before the extended time frame elapsed.  Due to Superstorm Sandy, the Tuesday deadline was moved to Thursday. 

The Jacksonville Jaguars traded wide receiver Mike Thomas to the Detroit Lions earlier in the week.  Right at the deadline, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded suspended cornerback Aqib Talib to the New England Patriots. 

One question that will be interesting to find out in the coming days is if Talib would have been dealt without the extra two days.  That extension led to much speculation on who may or may not be on the move. 

All those rumors were just that, but for fun, I am looking at five trades that realistically could have made sense.  Each trade would benefit each trading partner, as one team looks to make a playoff push this season and the other looks to the future.
