NFL trade rumors: Which players are available in the 2022 trade deadline?
The NFL trade deadline is less than a day away and teams could still beat the deadline and swap a few players. Here are some of those who could be moved.
Prominent names have been traded away the past few weeks in the NFL, including Christian McCaffrey, Robert Quinn, and James Robinson. It’s now less than 24 hours until the trade deadline, and multiple reports indicate that teams could be offloading some other players at the last minute.
Here are some players that may have new teams by the end of Tuesday.
Cam Akers (RB), Los Angeles Rams
The defending champions are currently at 3-4 in the NFC West and are in dire need of a change in their roster. The Rams are looking to trade Cam Akers, who has not played with the team for two straight games. However, if they are unable to deal him by the deadline, head coach Sean McVay says having Akers stay is still an option.
Josh Allen (OLB), Jacksonville Jaguars
Several suitors have come calling the Jaguars for Allen, but it appears that Jacksonville may take some persuading to release him. The 25-year-old makes up a vital part of the team’s future, so they would want to keep, rather than exchange him.
Kareem Hunt (RB), Cleveland Browns
The Browns have been fielding calls for Hunt, who could be the most valuable running back for trading now that McCaffrey has been spoken for. Hunt has a low base salary that makes him an attractive acquisition. Although the low pay makes him more valuable to the Browns, some quarters believe that the team can afford to let him go.
Bradley Chubb (OLB), Jerry Jeudy (WR), KJ Hamler (WR), Denver Broncos
The Broncos are struggling to take off this season with quarterback Russell Wilson, and a roster shake-up could be just the thing to get them going. There has been a lot of interest in Chubb, Jeudy, and Hamler, but Denver is likely to demand a steep price for them.
Brandin Cooks (WR), Houston Texans
Cooks is another wide receiver that has been receiving interest ahead of the deadline, and is considered one of the top wideouts in trade discussions. The Texans are reportedly open to trading him, and possible landing places are the Rams, the New York Giants, and the Minnesota Vikings. However, he is guaranteed $18 million for the 2023 season, which might deter teams from signing him on.
Sidney Jones (CB), Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks have received calls for the 26-year-old cornerback, and he may fill the need of other teams for a veteran at this position. His experience, coupled with his relatively low pay (he stands to receive $1.28 million for the rest of this season), will make him an attractive trade prospect.
Alvin Kamara (RB), New Orleans Saints
The Buffalo Bills reportedly tried to obtain the five-time Pro Bowler, but the Saints rebuffed them. After their impressive 24-0 win over the Las Vegas Raiders, the team is probably even more loath to part with him. He is one of the top dual-threat RBs in the league, and has averaged 70.2 rushing yards per game so far this year.
