Well, so much for another forgettable NFL trade deadline . For years, the football deadline has Unlike the trade deadlines in the NBA and MLB—which have long coincided with a slew of ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that one source told him this was the “ most active trade deadline ever .”

This year’s NFL trade deadline saw the biggest moves ever —and maybe a new must-watch point on the football calendar. The most significant trade deadline of the salary cap era is in the rear-view. In case you missed it, here’s what transpired over the past week

With less than three weeks to go before the NFL trade deadline on Oct. 30, there’s been a ton of rumors suggesting that some big-name players could be on the move. That includes Pro Bowl running backs LeSean McCoy and Le’Veon Bell.

It makes a ton of sense. In recent years, the NFL trade deadline has not been irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. In fact, last year saw a plethora of noticeable trades around the league. We can expect pretty much the same this October.

‘Bond’ Executive Producer Barbara Broccoli Rules Out Female 007

  ‘Bond’ Executive Producer Barbara Broccoli Rules Out Female 007 With Danny Boyle dropping out and Cary Joji Fukunaga boarding the forthcoming James Bond film, the iconic spy franchise has been going through some changes. Another much-talked-about topic is whether or not there will ever be a female James Bond. Although it would be progressive and refreshing to see a woman as Bond, Executive Producer Barbara Broccoli says we shouldn’t expect a female 007 any time soon. “Bond is male,” Broccoli said in an interview with The Guardian. “He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male.”She points out that there isn’t a need to turn male characters into women.

Whether it’s last-place teams looking to add future draft capital or unsustainable contract situations, this year’s trade deadline will likely be more active than ever before.

Le’Veon Bell’s situation with the Pittsburgh Steelers comes to mind first. Set to be a free agent following the 2018 season, Bell’s agent has already made it clear that his client is unlikely to remain with the team long-term. He’s held out through the first five games of the season, and the relationship between Bell and his organization is seemingly at an all-time low.

Sure moving on from the best all-around running back in the game would be questionable. That’s until we realize second-year back James Conner has filled in tremendously for Bell over the first five games. If Pittsburgh can get anything of substance for a back that will likely leave for nothing this coming March, why not do it? That’s the question GM Kevin Colbert and Co. will be asking themselves in the coming weeks.

Eagles betting favorites to land Le'Veon Bell before trade deadline

  Eagles betting favorites to land Le'Veon Bell before trade deadline It’s not a secret that the Pittsburgh Steelers have been engaged in trade talks with teams surrounding holdout running back Le’Veon Bell. An impending free agent, Bell has missed the team’s first five games. And while he’s potentially set to report here soon, it seems that the relationship between the All-Pro and his organization can’t be repaired. The issue here is that teams might be a bit timid about trading for a player they can’t sign to a new deal until the season is over. It’s left Pittsburgh between a rock and a hard place. It’s also watered down the market for Bell’s services leading up to the Oct. 30 trade deadline.But don’t tell any of this to Las Vegas.

The 2017 NFL trading deadline has produced some rare, and welcome, activity . We usually remark at this time of year about the presence of a lot of smoke but no fire in We first proposed pushing the deadline to much later in the season—the Tuesday after Thanksgiving—to create some buzz and

The NFL trade deadline was Tuesday afternoon, and fans were imagining a deal that would make their team better. The NFL equivalent of that has never really happened, but that day may actually be here now. Here are three reasons why the trade deadline is suddenly more exciting than it’s ever been

Among the teams reportedly interested in Bell, the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles have cleared enough cap room to take on the remainder of his contract and potentially sign him to a long-term deal before free agency opens. And while the team has leaked that it’s not interested in Bell, Philadelphia’s on-field situation tells us otherwise.

Starting running back Jay Ajayi was just placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL. At 2-3 on the season, Doug Pederson’s squad needs to step it up here soon. Adding Bell to the mix at the cost of future draft capital would be the ultimate win-now move for a team that still boasts expectations of repeating.

The narrative out there is that teams might be hesitant to trade for Bell because they can’t guarantee a long-term deal until after the season is over. This is somewhat of a surface-based point with no real logic.

Depending on what Pittsburgh might be demanding in a deal, giving up draft capital for a half season of Bell and an ability to negotiate with him before free agency could be worth the risk. That’s where teams likes the Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers, New York Jets and above-mentioned Eagles come into play.

Netflix Knocks Out ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist’, No Season 3 For Martial Arts Series

  Netflix Knocks Out ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist’, No Season 3 For Martial Arts Series EXCLUSIVE: Just over a month after its significantly improved second season launched on Netflix, the streaming service has delivered a knockout cancellation punch to Marvel’s Iron Fist “Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix,” said the Disney-owned comic giant and the streamer in a joint statement to Deadline today. “Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all of the hard work from our incredible cast, crew and showrunners,” Marvel and Netflix added. “We’re thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we’ve shared on this series.

Usually the NFL trade deadline comes and goes with maybe an interesting trade or two. Jay Ajayi to Philadelphia: There was no way Eagles general manager Howie Roseman was sitting out this historically active NFL trade deadline with his team in Super Bowl contention.

In North American professional sports, a trade is a sports league transaction between sports clubs that involves an exchange of players from one club/team to another.

Speaking of Philadelphia, it has reportedly already called the Buffalo Bills about six-time Pro Bowl back LeSean McCoy. A deal of this ilk would reunite McCoy with the team that originally drafted him. It’s seemingly more likely than Philadelphia taking a chance on Bell.

Despite his struggles through the first five games and some off-field issues, McCoy would be a valuable commodity on the trade market. He’s proven capable of being a dynamic back and could help a contending team over the short term. Again, that’s where both the Eagles and Packers come into play. How likely is it that McCoy will in fact be traded? Bills head coach Sean McDermott didn’t necessarily shoot down that possibility this week.

Outside of running back and these two specific situations, multiple teams are in the midst of lost seasons. Why wouldn’t they decide to add future draft capital as a way to build up otherwise young rosters?

There are six teams that currently have one win. Only seven teams that started 1-4 since 1978 have earned a trip to the playoffs. This is a clear indication that Indianapolis, Oakland, San Francisco, Arizona, Atlanta and the New York Giants are not going to be playing meaningful January football. It also means each of these teams could look to move veterans.

Steelers don't plan to rescind franchise tender, but could still trade Le'Veon Bell

  Steelers don't plan to rescind franchise tender, but could still trade Le'Veon Bell Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell plans to return to the team in less than two weeks. But they’ll also have a window to trade him, if they’d prefer to simply move on. If Bell returns during Week Seven, the Steelers will be able to move Bell until the window closes on the Tuesday after Week Eight. Per a league source, the Steelers continue to consider the possibility of getting what they can for Bell before the trade deadline.

Three Reasons the 2017 NFL Trade Deadline Was the Most Active Ever . Why did football ’s normally boring deadline wind up bringing us a slew of season-shaking moves? San Francisco is rolling the dice on the soon-to-be 26-year-old that could cost them more than just a second-round pick.

The NFL trade deadline is November 1, which is the Tuesday falling Week 8. Jason Cole reported on Friday that he heard some teams will be keeping an eye on the But if the 49ers continue struggling, could we see any trades ? NFL trades are fairly rare, so my guess is we don’t see much of anything.

The Oakland Raiders are the most interesting of this group in that head coach and de facto general manager Jon Gruden has not been afraid to make his mark on the team’s roster. Trading Khalil Mack and releasing Marquette King are two recent examples of this. What’s to stop Gruden from continuing his rebuild by moving a combination of Marshawn Lynch, Amari Cooper and Bruce Irvin? All three would net something on the trade market, enabling Gruden to continue building the Raiders’ roster in his mold.

In Arizona, former top picks Haason Reddick and Deone Bucannon seem to be on the trade block. Neither represent a fit in Steve Wilks’ defensive scheme. But both could be valuable to teams that would utilize them in a correct manner. Heck, maybe a team even decides to trade for quarterback insurance in that of Sam Bradford, who was relegated to third-string duties after being benched for rookie Josh Rosen earlier in the season.

San Francisco is also an interesting case study here. While reportedly interested in Bell, that would be an outlier of sorts for GM John Lynch and Co. It’s comparable to the 49ers trading for Jimmy Garoppolo last October. The idea would be to bring Bell into the mix with the expectation that he would be a long-term fit with Garoppolo moving forward.

The Russo Brothers Wrap ‘Avengers 4’ With Glowing Mystery Photo

  The Russo Brothers Wrap ‘Avengers 4’ With Glowing Mystery Photo Anthony Russo and Joe Russo continue to tease us with tweets and photos about Avengers 4. After tweeting an enigmatic black and white photo with the caption “Look hard…” that prompted many theories (many of them far-fetched) about the sequel out May 3, 2019, the Russo Brothers did it again when they wrapped Avengers 4.The tweet included a photo of a blindingly glowing object which has fans staring at it like one of those Magic Eye posters from the ’90s. As always, Twitter has erupted with theories some say its a coffin, some say it’s Adam Warlock, and some say the Russos are just trying to mess with us.

The 49ers could be active as the 2017 NFL trade deadline approaches. The 2017 NFL trade deadline is one week from today, and the 32 SB Nation NFL sites are considering the one trade we NFL trades are not overly common outside of the draft, but the 49ers have their share of veterans

So why is the trade deadline always so boring and anticlimactic? A few factors are at play in why the deadline is usually a dud. Another NFL trade deadline has come and gone, with the total sum of activity being one minor transaction: the Eagles' trade of defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga and a

Now that Garoppolo himself is lost for the season to a torn ACL, the 49ers’ expectations of playoffs have turned into complete irrelevance. And even if the team were to make a move for a player like Bell, that wouldn’t stop it from trading a plethora of veterans as a way to continue its rebuild. That includes former first-round picks Arik Armstead, Josh Garnett and Jimmie Ward. It could also include veteran wide receiver Pierre Garcon, who would help a contending team.

As the next couple weeks of football actually play out on the field, we have to anticipate a volatile and active trade market leading up to Oct. 30. For the teams mentioned above, that would at least add some drama to an otherwise horrible start to the season.

For contending teams, an active trade market seems to be assured. Even those who are currently undefeated in Kansas City and Los Angeles have some issues to deal with. Despite their record-breaking pace on offense, the Chiefs’ defense has been a complete disaster. Meanwhile, the Rams are dealing with a plethora of injuries in the secondary.

In a season that’s been defined by imperfect teams and struggles from those with Super Bowl expectations, it just makes too much sense for the trade market not to be active.
