With the NFL trade deadline, fast-approaching teams are gearing up to get all deals done and done quickly. During the last week, two big names running backs were traded. Christian McCaffrey moved across the country to join San Francisco and James Robinson moved East Coast to join the New York Jets.
Christian McCaffrey’s trade came about after the firing of the head coach. Carolina got a host of picks in return. It was a kind of win-win situation for all.
NFL Trade Deadline Nov 1
The 2022 deadline has already been a bustling one, with several superstars on the move and perhaps a few more to go. We’ve gotten enough in the hopper to start the all-important process of grading those moves. While this is difficult—in many cases the players haven’t gotten much of an opportunity—we can still get a sense of each team’s situation, the compensation they doled out, and how they’ll be able to best utilize the player’s skill set.
Names to look out for in the remaining few days before the trade deadline
Cam Akers: The man who had been laid low with torn Achilles in 2021 and has not played ever since week 5 of the NFL is having a hard time with his team’s coach. Akers has his contract with the Rams till 2024. He is being shopped openly, even though they are displaying that they want him to be retained.
Chase Claypool: The talented youngster with a rookie deal.
Mike Gesicki: The misfit. With a low average of 28 Y/G
Antonio Gibson: Talent Power House. Versatile. He could be a good trade for a team in need of a back.
Let us wait and watch how things progress in NFL
