Once the final whistle sounds on the thrilling Halloween edition of Monday Night Football featuring the Cleveland Browns and the Cincinnati Bengals, Week 8 of the NFL season will be in the books. That means that the midpoint of the year has almost arrived, but also that the trade deadline is nearly here, as there are no trades allowed after 4:00 pm New York Time on Tuesday, November 1 until the start of the new league year next March.
In seasons past the Seattle Seahawks have made moves at the trade deadline to add veterans to the roster, including Duane Brown and Carlos Dunlap, but whether they will make a move this year remains to be seen.
There has been plenty of action across the league already, with the Philadelphia Eagles acquiring Robert Quinn from the Chicago Bears, and the Kansas City Chiefs snagging Kadarius Toney from the New York Giants. Reports indicate that the Hawks have made Sidney Jones available, but there have been no additional reports of movement on that front in recent weeks.
In any case, stay tuned to Field Gulls, where we’ll work to keep readers updated on all the trade news from across the NFL as the trade deadline approaches.
Ravens acquire LB Roquan Smith from the Bears
Full terms: A 2 and a 5 and AJ Klein for Roquan Smith and his salary. https://t.co/cGecczkLD7— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 31, 2022
Also of note, the deadline for teams to adjust contracts ahead of any trade passed on Monday, so any trades that take place at the deadline Tuesday will involve the acquiring team taking on the entire contract.
The deadline for restructuring contracts to facilitate trades was 3:59 p.m. ET Monday. So, eating money -- as the #Bears did with Roquan Smith and Robert Quinn -- is not an option. Any trades done between now and 4 p.m. will require a new team to take on the existing contract.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) November 1, 2022
