He performed each defensive snap, totaling 11 tackles, one deal with for loss, and a pressured fumble.
Golden Tate, WR, Detroit Lions
The Lions are Three-Four, however they’re nonetheless removed from out of a aggressive NFC North race. So it’d be shocking in the event that they moved Tate, considered one of their greatest offensive weapons.

— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) October 22, 2018
It nonetheless appears unlikely that the Broncos will trade him:
Replace to yesterday’s story, the Broncos won’t trade Demaryius Thomas this week and are not actively purchasing him, per supply. Will they pay attention if groups are as Tuesday trade deadline approaches subsequent week? In all probability. However good guess DT finishes season in Denver. #9sports
— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) October 24, 2018
BUT, the Patriots, who are reportedly in the hunt for an additional vast receiver, are sniffing round Thomas:
A number of league sources affirm the #Patriots have been lively on the trade entrance for weeks. That’s not irregular for them. One identify that’s been mentioned is #Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas. Thomas was drafted by Pats OC Josh McDaniels when he was HC at Denver.
— Michael Giardi (@MikeGiardi) October 28, 2018
After the Broncos’ Week eight loss to the Chiefs, Thomas stated the rumors have been taking a toll on him:

Eliminating a constant and productive starter isn’t straightforward, particularly for a group with playoff aspirations, however Jay Glazer of FOX Sports activities reported Sunday that Clinton-Dix is certainly on the buying and selling block. Ian Rapoport additionally stated Clinton-Dix, who is about to be a free agent after the season, is obtainable. The Cowboys and Chiefs are amongst the groups in search of security assist.

The Bucs, nevertheless, fancy themselves to be in “win-now” mode, in order that they’re hesitant to grant his want.
Le’Veon Bell, RB, Steelers
Bell has but to signal his franchise tender, and can’t be dealt till he does so. The Steelers have been getting good manufacturing out of James Conner with Bell not reporting to the staff.

Bell should report back to the staff by Week 10, or his contract rolls into subsequent season and he gained’t be a free agent.

Odell Beckham Jr., WR, New York Giants
Beckham simply obtained a record-setting deal from the Giants this offseason. He’s additionally publicly criticized the offense and quarterback Eli Manning.

— NFL Replace (@MySportsUpdate) October 28, 2018

Landon Collins, S, New York Giants
The 2-time Professional Bowl security is simply 24 and resulting from be a free agent at the finish of the yr. He might check the free agent waters subsequent yr, re-sign with the Giants, or simply get traded now.

Jenkins is aware of it might occur:
Jackrabbit on the risk of being traded: “Business is business, baby. Whatever they decide to do, that’s what they do. I can’t be mad at them. I can’t judge nobody. I can’t say nothing. If it happens it happens. I’m on to the next step.”
— Tom Rock (@TomRock_Newsday) October 25, 2018
However even in the midst of a rebuild, would the Giants trade away two beginning cornerbacks? Perhaps. The Steelers are reportedly very occupied with Jenkins:
Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants
Manning has had a tough season. He additionally has no-trade clause that he gained’t waive.
“I want to stay here,” Manning stated when requested about it after the Giants fell to 1-7.
Although he doesn’t appear to be going anyplace this season, his time as Giants beginning quarterback might be nearing its finish.
Patrick Peterson, CB, Arizona Cardinals
Peterson is considered one of the prime cornerbacks in the league and he’s on certainly one of the worst groups in the league. Due to that, he had requested that the Cardinals trade him, in accordance with Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Along with the Saints, McFadden stories the Eagles and Patriots are fascinated with Peterson, whereas the Steelers presently are not.
Nevertheless, the Cardinals have stated they haven’t any plans to trade him, and Peterson later launched a press release affirming his dedication to the group:
It doesn’t seem as if he’s headed anyplace, at the least not this season:

LeSean McCoy, RB, Buffalo Payments
There haven’t been a ton of rumors surrounding the oft-productive operating again, however hypothesis over the previous weeks have been that he might be moved, notably to his former staff, the Eagles. Philadelphia is now with out Jay Ajayi, who’s on injured reserve with a torn ACL, although Rapoport stories that there’s a very good probability McCoy stays with the Payments.
As of Sunday morning, Week eight, it’s unlikely that the Payments will trade McCoy, in response to Adam Schefter. However the Payments might nonetheless be busy before the deadline.
Tyrod Taylor, QB, Cleveland Browns
Taylor was benched by the Cleveland Browns, who elected to go together with Baker Mayfield at quarterback after simply three video games. Taylor needs to compete, and whereas he hasn’t requested a trade (that we all know of), he additionally hasn’t dominated it out as the deadline approaches, based on Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.
DeVante Parker, WR, Miami Dolphins
Dolphins receiver DeVante Parker has missed time with accidents this season and all through coaching camp, however main as much as Week 7 was a full participant in apply.

Considered one of the groups curious about Parker is the Eagles:
Yesterday I reported the Dolphins have spoken to a number of NFL groups a few buying and selling DeVante Parker. I’m now advised a type of groups is the Philadelphia Eagles.
— Armando Salguero (@ArmandoSalguero) October 21, 2018
Parker returned to the lineup in Week eight, when he appeared like the greatest participant for the Dolphins all night time. He hauled in six catches for a game-high 134 yards towards the Texans.
It can doubtless take a very good supply — a mid-round decide, based on Ian Rapoport — for the Dolphins to half with him:
DeVante Parker, the topic of trade talks as late as final week, is on a lot better footing even before enjoying tonight as a result of the Dolphins are coping with so many accidents to the WR corps.
Dolphins gained’t trade him until it’s for critical, critical compensation.
— Armando Salguero (@ArmandoSalguero) October 25, 2018

Principally everyone on the Raiders’ roster
Only a couple weeks in the past, the Raiders have been rumored to be buying Karl Joseph and Amari Cooper. Jon Gruden denied that Cooper was out there, and every week later, he was traded to the Cowboys. One other former first-round decide, cornerback Gareon Conley, is getting curiosity from others groups, too. Ian Rapoport stated on NFL Community that veteran defensive finish Bruce Irvin might be one other trade candidate.
Raiders basic supervisor Reggie McKenzie was requested if any gamers on the roster have been “untouchable.” He responded by saying that he isn’t “going to say anyone’s untouchable,” based on Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.
Gruden was fast to notice that Derek Carr shouldn’t be on the trade block and neither is anybody else:
Once I talked about Derek Carr, Gruden was fast and to the level: “We’re not trading anyone else. We’re trying to stay competitive and figure out a way to compete this next game (against the Colts.” #Raiders
— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) October 22, 2018
However who is aware of if that’s true or not? Clearly, if Carr is a participant who isn’t ultimately traded, Gruden wouldn’t need him to have that doubt hanging over his quarterback. Or perhaps he’s actually not out there, however the different 50-plus gamers on the roster are!
