Wingo: Sanu trade is another reason Patriots will play in Super Bowl (1:06)

Trey Wingo says Mohamed Sanu being traded to the Patriots adds to the reasons New England will be playing in the Super Bowl. (1:06)

The NFL trade deadline -- 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Oct. 29 -- is approaching, and teams have been wheeling and dealing since August.

The Dolphins have added several picks, including two extra first-round picks in the 2020 NFL draft. The Rams dealt for star cornerback Jalen Ramsey, giving the Jaguars two first-rounders in the trade. The Texans made a couple of bold moves. The Patriots were active because they always are.

We're tracking every deal since training camp here, with analysis and highlights from our team of NFL reporters:

49ers trade for Broncos WR Sanders

Date: Oct. 22

The Denver Broncos are trading wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to the San Francisco 49ers, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

San Francisco is sending third- and fourth-round draft picks in the 2020 draft to Denver, who are also including a 2020 fifth-round pick with Sanders in the deal, the sources said. Sanders, 32, has 30 catches for 367 yards and two touchdowns in seven games this season, his sixth with the Broncos (2-5).


Patriots acquire WR Sanu from Falcons

Date: Oct. 22

The New England Patriots have acquired veteran wide receiver Mohamed Sanu from the Atlanta Falcons in exchange for a second-round draft pick, league sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Sanu gives the Patriots an inside target, especially on third down, that will help take pressure off top target Julian Edelman. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Sanu is in his eighth season and has 33 receptions for 313 yards and one touchdown this season.


Would the Bills trade for a WR? Why adding options makes sense

Date: Oct. 22

The Buffalo Bills have been one of the NFL's biggest surprises halfway through the 2019 NFL season. They have the NFL's seventh-best rushing attack (135.8 yards per game), but rank 21st or worse in passing yards per game, completion percentage, yards per attempt and passer rating through six games.

To alleviate the pressure on the running game, trading for another receiver before the deadline could make sense.


Raiders trade CB Conley to Texans

Date: Oct. 21

The Oakland Raiders are trading cornerback Gareon Conley to the Houston Texans for a third-round pick, a source confirmed to ESPN.

Conley, who was Oakland's first-round pick (24th overall) in 2017, has one interception this season in six starts. He has four interceptions, 18 passes defensed and 67 tackles in 23 career games.

Source: Falcons put OLB Beasley on trade block

Date: Oct. 20

Falcons pass-rusher Vic Beasley is on the trade block, a source told ESPN on Sunday.

The 2015 first-round draft pick from Clemson has not been the same player since leading the league with 15.5 sacks in 2016. His production has steadily declined, and he entered Sunday's game against the Rams with just 1.5 sacks.


Sources: Broncos getting trade calls on WR Sanders

Date: Oct. 20

As losses pile up in Denver, the Broncos are likely to be open to listening to offers for wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, sources tell ESPN.

There are enough teams expected to be in the wide receiver market in the days leading up to the Oct. 29 trade deadline -- including the Panthers, Patriots, Eagles, 49ers and others -- and Sanders could be on the block.

With the Oct. 29 trade deadline looming, we asked our 32 NFL Nation reporters to choose potential trade targets for every team. That means veterans who can't get on the field, players who have overstayed their welcomes and guys who just need a change of scenery.


Jags shipping CB Ramsey to Rams

Date: Oct. 15

After trading cornerback Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens, the Los Angeles Rams made another blockbuster move Tuesday, trading for embattled Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

According to Schefter, the Rams are sending two first-round picks in 2020 and 2021, and a fourth-round pick in 2021. Ramsey, the fifth overall pick in 2016, requested a trade in mid-September because of growing frustrations with the organization.

Ramsey: Jaguars' front office portrayed me as a 'bum'

Jalen Ramsey explains how part of his frustration with the Jaguars was being portrayed "as a bum" because he missed voluntary workouts.


Rams deal CB Peters to Ravens

Date: Oct. 15

The Los Angeles Rams have traded cornerback Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens for linebacker Kenny Young and a 2020 fifth-round draft pick. Peters is in the fifth and final season of his rookie contract. The Rams acquired the former first-rounder from the Kansas City Chiefs before the 2018 season. In 22 regular-season games in L.A., Peters has intercepted five passes, returning two for touchdowns. He made the Pro Bowl in 2015 and '16 with the Chiefs.

By trading for Marcus Peters, Ravens address a secondary hit with injuries. Cornerback Jimmy Smith (knee) has missed the past five games, and nickelback Tavon Young (neck) is out for the season. Marcus Canady and Anthony Averett have struggled as starting cornerbacks. Quarterbacks have targeted them because they're throwing away from Marlon Humphrey, who has been playing at a Pro Bowl level.

Rams land Corbett to help offensive line

Date: Oct. 15

The Rams sent a 2021 draft pick to Cleveland in exchange for Austin Corbett, who was selected in the second round of the 2018 draft from Nevada. Corbett has appeared in 14 games for the Browns, and provides depth to the O-line after Joe Noteboom suffered a torn MCL/ACL in Week 6.


Bills shipping WR Jones to Raiders

Date: Oct. 7

The Buffalo Bills are trading wide receiver Zay Jones to the Oakland Raiders for a 2021 fifth-round pick, sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Jones, in his third year with the Bills, has seven receptions for 69 yards this season but wasn't targeted in Sunday's win against the Titans.

Jon Gruden, on Zay Jones: “I like him. He was a very productive guy in college. Played in the slot, played split end and flanker. Tough guy, smart. I just think he has a lot of natural skills that are really well worth looking into. With all our injuries, I really credit [General Manager] Mike Mayock and his staff for the two trades that we made. Trevor Davis has really played big dividends for us. We expect more of the same from Zay.”

Falcons acquire S Cyprien in trade with Eagles

Date: Sept. 30

The Atlanta Falcons, in need of safety help, traded linebacker Duke Riley and a 2020 sixth-round draft pick to the Philadelphia Eagles for safety Johnathan Cyprien and a 2020 seventh-round draft pick.

Cyprien, 29, has started 70 career games in six seasons, including four years as a starting strong safety in Jacksonville, where the Jaguars run a scheme similar to the Falcons'. The 6-foot-1, 211-pound Cyprien is known more as an in-the-box safety but has been a liability in coverage.


Seahawks trading TE Vannett to Steelers

Date: Sept. 24

The Seahawks are finalizing a trade to send tight end Nick Vannett to the Steelers, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Complete details of the deal weren't immediately known.

Steelers starting tight end Vance McDonald injured his shoulder early in Sunday's loss in San Francisco. His status for Week 4 on Monday night against the Bengals hasn't been announced by the team.


Raiders land WR/KR Davis in trade with Packers

Date: Sept. 18

Trevor Davis had a big game against the Oakland Raiders in the preseason, and now he has joined them. The Green Bay Packers traded Davis to the Raiders. In a bit of trivia, if Davis is active on Sunday, he'll play against the Vikings two straight weeks (in Week 2 as a Packer and in Week 3 as a Raider).


Steelers get DB Fitzpatrick from Dolphins

Date: Sept. 16

The Steelers have acquired defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick from the Dolphins in exchange for a 2020 first-round pick. The Dolphins also are getting the Steelers' 2020 fifth-round pick and a sixth-rounder in 2021. In turn, the Steelers will receive Miami's 2020 fourth-round pick and a seventh-round pick in 2021.


CB Ramsey wants out of Jacksonville, asks for trade

Date: Sept. 16

Cornerback Jalen Ramsey's agent, David Mulugheta, told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen on Monday that he asked the Jaguars to trade his client. League sources also told ESPN that the Jaguars have had talks with teams and are asking for at least one first-round pick but would like more than that in return for the two-time Pro Bowl cornerback.


Jets acquire WR Thomas from Pats

Date: Sept. 10

One day after coach Adam Gase's public criticism of the team, the Jets traded for wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and changed kickers for the third time since training camp -- a mini-shake-up that sends a message to the locker room. The Jets acquired Thomas from the Patriots for a 2021 sixth-round pick, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. That the bitter rivals made a trade was stunning. It was a first for Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who previously had executed a trade with every team except the Jets.

Quincy Enunwa's season-ending neck injury, the second of his career, sheds light on the Demaryius Thomas trade. Adam Gase never disclosed the injury, perhaps to keep from losing leverage in the receiver market. This is a blow to the Jets, who relied on Enunwa's yards-after-catch ability in their passing attack. Their offense loses an element of toughness. Thomas knows Gase's system, which is a plus, but how much does he have left? Bill Belichick doesn't give away good players.

Jags acquire Dobbs as backup QB

Date: Sept. 9

After losing starter Nick Foles to a broken clavicle, the Jaguars traded a fifth-round pick in 2020 to Pittsburgh for quarterback Joshua Dobbs. Dobbs will back up Gardner Minshew, the Jaguars' sixth-round pick who replaced Foles.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew, who scored a 42 on the Wonderlic, says he doesn't consider himself in the same league as new backup Josh Dobbs, who graduated from Tennessee with a degree in aerospace engineering. So where does he belong?

Packers get ILB Goodson from Giants

Date: Sept. 2

The Packers found some inside linebacker help. Three days before the season opener, they acquired former Giants starter B.J. Goodson in a trade.


Dealing Dolphins send LB Alonso to Saints

Date: Sept. 2

The Dolphins continued their veteran purge, trading Kiko Alonso to the Saints for linebacker Vince Biegel.


Texans trade DE Clowney to Seahawks

Date: Sept. 1

In exchange for Jadeveon Clowney, the Texans are receiving a 2020 third-round pick and linebackers Barkevious Mingo and Jacob Martin. Houston paid Clowney a $7 million signing bonus, while Seattle is paying the remaining $8 million of his salary.

The Jadeveon Clowney trade looks like a steal for the Seahawks considering what they're giving up for a 26-year-old Pro Bowl pass-rusher -- even if he ends up being just a one-year rental for $16 million. If so, the Seahawks could get a high compensatory pick to help make up for the 2020 third-rounder they're sending to Houston along with Barkevious Mingo (who may have otherwise been cut) and Jacob Martin (a promising young pass-rusher but a rotational piece). There's some risk for the Seahawks that this could be a thud like the Sheldon Richardson trade from 2017, but it's a worthwhile one given the state of their defensive line. A week ago, it was hard to imagine Seattle having a credible pass-rush, at least early in the season with Ziggy Ansah's availability uncertain and Jarran Reed suspended for six games. But with word that Ansah is on track to play Week 1 and Clowney now joining him in front of what may be the league's best linebacker trio, Seattle has the makings of a dominant front seven, especially once Reed returns.

Texans complete deal for LT Tunsil, WR Stills

Date: Sept. 1

Houston also will receive a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a sixth-round pick in '21 from Miami to complete the deal.
