The NFL trade deadline has officially passed.
It was a crazy deadline day on Tuesday that saw numerous trades made.
Plenty of contenders went all-in looking to improve their roster for the second half of the season.
Despite many trades being made before Tuesday, here are three winners from deadline day.
1. Miami Dolphins
The Miami Dolphins realize that their opportunity to compete is now.
So they went out and made a big move to acquire pass rusher Bradley Chubb from the Denver Broncos.
Chubb is a very good player who has 5.5 sacks this year, and an elite pass-rush win rate of 27%.
Bradley Chubb has the 3rd-highest Pass Rush Win Rate this season among edge rushers, defeating his blocks within 2.5 seconds 26.7% of the time, according to ESPN Analytics in conjunction with NFL Next Gen Stats. https://t.co/msLgdkWjCF pic.twitter.com/d4noiYAYWe

Chubb will help them do that.
2. Minnesota Vikings
Another team that is having a surprising season is the Minnesota Vikings.
They have a record of 6-1 and are in very good shape to win the NFC North.
But, they are looking to do more than just win the division.
The Vikings traded for tight end T.J. Hockenson on Tuesday to bolster their offense.

With Irv Smith Jr. placed on injured reserve, Hockenson will come to Minnesota as an upgrade at the position.
3. Buffalo Bills
It was clear that leading up to the trade deadline the Buffalo Bills wanted to add a running back.
They were able to do just that when they acquired Nyheim Hines from the Colts.
Hines is a very good pass-catching RB and he is explosive.
Trade terms, per source:
🏈RB Zack Moss and a conditional 6th round pick in 2023 to the Colts.
🏈Nyheim Hines to the Bills.

He should be able to help the Buffalo passing game and become another weapon for Josh Allen.
While this may not seem like a huge deal, Hines is a good addition to an already-loaded Bills team.
