The 2018 NFL Trade deadline is quickly approaching but the Dallas Cowboys made their big splash last week.
Dallas traded for wide receiver Amari Cooper, and they were hardly the only team in the NFL that wanted help at the position. Just hours before Tuesday’s deadline big-time trades started getting announced. Here’s our tracker for all the moves.
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas to the Houston Texans
The Denver Broncos are in a bit of a rebuild and were likely going to move on from the only receiver drafted ahead of Dez Bryant in 2010 this offseason. That’s right, Demaryius Thomas is the name and he’s the newest member of the Houston Texans. It costed a fourth-round pick.
The Texans visit the Broncos this week. What a weird few days for Demaryius Thomas.
Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate to the Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles were rumored to have been in on the Amari Cooper trade talks along with the Cowboys last week. Philly clearly wanted to upgrade the position and they did courtesy of someone who’s already burned Dallas this season... Golden Tate.
It’s been real DETROIT! I’ll love ya forever. Philly Philly let’s get it!!— Golden Tate (@ShowtimeTate) October 30, 2018
Tate caught all eight of his targets to the tune of 132 yards and 2 touchdowns when Dallas hosted Detroit back in late September. The Cowboys still play the Eagles twice this season, including their next road game in Week 10, so get ready for more Golden.
Philadelphia paid a third-round pick in order to acquire Tate. Remember that he’s on the last year of his contract.

Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery to the Baltimore Ravens
If you upset Aaron Rodgers and force him to lose a game, that’s likely the last straw. Such was the case for Ty Montgomery.

A 7th round pick in 2020 goes to the Packers. A clear sign they moved on. https://t.co/B2AgXhOGEQ— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 30, 2018
Jacksonville Jaguars DE Dante Fowler to the Los Angeles Rams
The Los Angeles Rams aren’t resting on the fact that they’re undefeated eight weeks in. They’re going big and they’re going big in a big way.

Green Bay Packers S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to the Washington Redskins
Philadelphia wasn’t the only NFC East team to get some help before the trade deadline. The last team to beat the Cowboys picked up some safety help, and it’s a little funny. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is a Redskin.
