NFL trade rumors: What players could be available in the coming weeks?
The NFL trade deadline is drawing ever closer, and some teams may be getting more clarity about whom they can let go of as they head into Week 5.
The NFL trade deadline is just a few weeks away, and teams are getting ready to decide who they can let go for a better deal come November 1. Some players may find themselves playing for another team within the season.
D’Ernest Johnson, Cleveland Browns RB
Cleveland has Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt taking the lead in the backfield, leaving Johnson to fulfill bench duties. The Browns’ rushing attack is a force to contend with, without needing the contributions of their number three RB. Other teams could make better use of the talents of the 26-year-old, especially as he is on a one-year, $1.2 million deal that is not very prohibitive.
Nelson Agholor, New England Patriots WR
The Patriots could be considering moving Agholor in November to save $9.8 million as he has a cap hit of $14.9 million this year. They are taking into consideration the injuries of their quarterbacks, their huge investment in two tight ends, and wide receiver Jakobi Meyer’s impending entry into the free agency market. The 29-year-old’s explosiveness and speed could be attractive to teams needing these qualities.
Robert Quinn, Chicago Bears OLB
Quinn has already stated that he is open to moving to a new team. Although his talents would be missed, trading him would save the Bears around $12 million. The 32-year-old recorded 18.5 sacks last season, and Chicago could very well get a good return for the three-time Pro-Bowler.
Christian McCaffrey, Carolina Panthers RB
The Panthers currently stand at 1-3, and may be needing some major changes on the quarterback and head coach front. As such, they would be needing some bargaining power, and McCaffrey could very well be it. They are making good use of the standout running back, but they could get a lot in return for him that could greatly help them in other areas. Carolina could also save some $35 million if they let go of McCaffrey.
Kenny Golladay, New York Giants WR
Golladay was a Pro Bowler in 2019, but has been under-utilized since joining the Giants. It appears that he is not meshing with head coach Brian Daboll’s offensive strategy, and he could contribute more to another team. The Giants would likely have to shoulder most of Golladay’s contract in a trade, as there is $31.4 million in dead money left on his contract.
