With the NFL trade deadline less than two weeks away (4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Nov. 3), teams are setting up their rosters for the stretch run of the 2020 season. Could Eagles tight end Zach Ertz, who's frustrated about his contract, get moved? Could a team trade for a quarterback? Jameis Winston (Saints), Jacoby Brissett (Colts) and Dwayne Haskins (Washington) are among the backups who could be had. Pass-rusher Yannick Ngakoue is among the players who has already be dealt (from Minnesota to Baltimore).
We asked our NFL Nation reporters to pick 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. Here are 31 candidates -- one for almost every team -- who could be dealt before the deadline:
Defensive end Everson Griffen
Let's be honest -- there's not a lot to pick from on the Cowboys, and the players who could have value (such as wide receiver Michael Gallup) will not be dealt. So Griffen gets the call, and it is not because of what he has done this season. It's what he has done in the past. He has 1.5 sacks, a tackle for loss and 12 quarterback pressures this year, but he has not made many impact plays in key moments. He came to the Cowboys after a 10-year run in Minnesota, where he had 76 sacks, including eight last season. Because he is on a one-year contract, a pass-rush-needy contending team might be willing to take a nine- or 10-game gamble to see if he has anything left for a middle-of-the-road draft pick. -- Todd Archer
