While the NFL trade deadline doesn't get the hype of its MLB, NBA or even NHL counterparts, it has become a bigger deal on the league calendar in recent years. And trade rumors are flying as the Nov. 1 deadline approaches.
We've already seen some deals happen, with the Carolina Panthers trading running back Christian McCaffrey to the San Francisco 49ers days after sending receiver Robbie Anderson to the Arizona Cardinals. The New York Jets made noise Monday, dealing for Jacksonville Jaguars running back James Robinson. So with a week left, we asked our trusted NFL Nation reporters to identify one player on the team they cover who could be pursued or dealt before the deadline.
There are players who have been first-round draft picks and Pro Bowlers and a former rushing champion on this list, along with a guy who had 18.5 sacks last year. We've graded the handful of trades that already have been completed, and ESPN reporter Jeremy Fowler last week went through the early buzz on players who were brought up in discussions.
RB Zack Moss
With the best record in the AFC, the Bills aren't in big-time trading mode -- this is one of the best rosters in the league. But if there were a candidate for the Bills to trade, it would be Moss, who was a healthy scratch in Week 6 against the Chiefs. The 2020 third-round pick has the fewest yards and carries among the team's three backs and is a healthy scratch candidate as the season continues, since pass protection and special teams play are the priorities for the final active offensive roster spots on game day. A potential trade would likely include late draft picks. -- Alaina Getzenberg
