Today is the 2013 NFL Trade Deadline and some players, like Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon, are rumored to be on the trading block
Today, Tuesday October 29th @ 4 PM EST is the 2013 NFL Trade Deadline. And for the first time in a while, there is some “buzz” around the date. Already the NFL saw the trades involving former Ravens OT Bryant McKinnie to the Miami Dolphins for picks, former Panthers LB Jon Beason to NY Giants for a late round draft pick and former Browns RB Trent Richardson to the Colts for picks including a 2014 first-rounder.
Some of the rumored players that are said to be on the trading block include:
Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew
Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon
Bills QB Dennis Dixon
Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald
Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez
Browns WR Josh Gordon
Eagles RB LeSean McCoy
Lions QB Kellen Moore
Giants WR Hakeem Nicks
However I never hold my breath around the trade deadline, as most trades in the NFL occur on draft day — due to teams unwilling to “give-up” a player until the offseason. If any trades do happen at the 2013 NFL Trade Deadline, expect them to be something like the 2005 deal that sent former Niners QB Tim Rattay to the Tampa Bay Bucs for a future 6th rd pick .
