NFL Trades Tracker: Cowboys aren’t the only team wanting receiver help midway through the season

New, comments

Receivers are all the rage.

NFL: Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

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.

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.


Update: 3:45pm ET

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.


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.
