The NFL trade deadline is set for Tuesday, Nov 2nd at 4 pm.
There hasn’t been much activity to this point, but there are a lot of players being discussed that could be on the move.
At the end of September, the Jaguars traded CB CJ Henderson to the Carolina Panthers.
A week later, the Panthers acquired another cornerback in Stephon Gilmore from the Patriots.
Other Names Being Discussed
According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Deshaun Watson is not the only intriguing name being discussed at the deadline.

Edge rushers Melvin Ingram and LJ Collier stand out as the biggest names among this group.
All of the names being mentioned have struggled to find playing times with their respective teams this season.
Ingram has failed so far to live up to expectations in Pittsburgh only 2 years removed from a Pro Bowl season.
Alex Highsmith has 4 QB hits and 1.5 sacks
TJ Watt has 2 TFL and 3 batted passes
Melvin Ingram has not recorded a statistic of any type tonight

After being a first-round selection in 2019, Collier has been a healthy scratch for 4 games this year.
Dillard is another 2019 first-round pick that lost his job to Jordan Mailata on the Eagles’ offensive line.

Fuller could prove to be the most valuable player among the players mentioned that could thrive with another team this season.
He is a 2-time Pro Bowler that was once a highly touted lockdown corner, but has struggled this season with the Broncos.

He signed a 1-year deal with the Broncos in the offseason, but Denver’s depth at the cornerback position has made him expendable.
Perhaps a change of scenery would help his situation.
