The NFL trade deadline is here Tuesday afternoon and the rumors are swirling.
Von Miller is one big name already on the move and fans should expect more prominent trades to come.
So who are the most notable players likely to be moved?
Here are three top options that come to mind.
3. Nick Foles
Nick Foles is currently wasting away as the third-string quarterback with the Chicago Bears.
The Cleveland Browns, New Orleans Saints, and Denver Broncos are just a few teams that come to mind of those seeking quarterback help at the midway point of the year.
Foles is already a Super Bowl MVP and it is rare that a team can fetch some draft capital in return for a third-string quarterback.
Chicago needs to also make this move as an act of goodwill and avoid having an angry Foles on the bench as a distraction moving forward.
2. Deshaun Watson
News emerged recently that the Houston Texans were content on keeping Deshaun Watson and pursuing trades next offseason.
However, the team would still be wise to listen to offers.

Right now it would appear the Miami Dolphins are the only team in the running and the Texans are now waiting for an offer they cannot refuse for the quarterback.
Such a trade also brings Tua Tagovailoa‘s status into question, with the southpaw potentially going to a third team in a deal.
A Watson trade is difficult because of his legal situation.
However, it is hard to believe teams aren’t calling Houston with strong offers given the quarterback is currently eligible to play.
1. Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. and the Browns remain a terrible match.
For some unknown reason, he cannot find any chemistry with Baker Mayfield and looks lost in that offense.

Moving him is not just about a team out there landing a top talent.
It is about the Browns moving on from a failed experiment and letting the offense flow with other players taking on more responsibility.
Beckham had one catch Sunday and his most notable play was not going up for a ball near the end zone.
Teams all around the NFL should be eager to take him off the Browns’ hands in a trade that will benefit all sides involved.
