The NFL trade deadline is only hours away and the rumors are swirling nonstop.
Players all around the league are wondering what city they will call home tomorrow given all the rumors out there.
At the moment, several players are prominent in the rumor mill and the NFL world is reacting to all the drama on Twitter.
A Movement To Free OBJ
Perhaps the most interesting discussion on deadline day is what the Cleveland Browns should do with Odell Beckham Jr.
Former Cleveland hero LeBron James decided to chime in on the matter.
OBJ will show again why he’s special. WR1 #FreeOBJ

The hashtag exploded after James’ tweet.

the Browns are weirdly holding OBJ hostage despite having zero plans to utilize him.
it’s like your spouse refusing to sign the divorce papers because they don’t want you with someone else 🥴 #FreeOBJ

Odell has done EVERYTHING asked of him since he’s gotten to Cleveland. it hasn’t worked out and now they have to do right by him. #FreeOBJ

So will they move the receiver?
It may not be possible given his giant salary and lack of production so far in 2021.
A Backup QB On The Move?
There is a whole list of NFL teams in need of quarterback help and that has put the name of Mitchell Trubisky right in the middle of the rumor mill.
According to a Bills message board, they are trading Trubisky for Chase Young. https://t.co/wLiV0qiVAl

Mitchell Trubisky trade?!? ONLY if it upgrades the Bills offensive line… just my opinion.
— Josh Reed (@4JoshReed) November 2, 2021
The Buffalo Bills backup is on a minimum one-year deal and may have seen his stock rise this year based on how Matt Nagy is handling Justin Fields in Chicago.
Yet the Bills would be making a tough choice to make such a trade because Trubisky is the top backup to Josh Allen, who has a tendency to be reckless.
Such a trade would really have to fill a need for Buffalo.
I think if the #Bills trade Mitch Trubisky, it has to be for something so good, it's a no-brainer.
They want the 1 seed. If Allen misses a chunk of the IND-NO-NE-TB-CAR-NE stretch and it's Webb/Fromm/street QB, hard to see Buffalo ending up with the AFC's best record.

Will They Or Won’t They?
The former was once the Indianapolis Colts’ top running back, only to be bumped down the depth chart following an injury.
But he has been on the trade block for weeks and nothing has materialized.

Omg, is Marlon Mack not gonna get traded.??

As for Watson, his case is one to follow right up until the deadline because if he gets moved it will be for a monumental price.

A lot of the rumors this trade deadline may surround players who are ultimately not moved.
But one thing NFL fans can unite on is how fun it is every year to wait and see what deals go down.
