Report: NFL investigating Raiders for breaking COVID-19 protocol

  Report: NFL investigating Raiders for breaking COVID-19 protocol The NFL is investigating the Raiders for potentially violating coronavirus protocols by allowing a team employee without proper credentials to enter their locker room. The alleged violation took place following Monday night’s big win over the New Orleans Saints. Only 40 employees from each organization are allowed inside the locker room. There are security points to prevent unauthorized people from entering locker rooms, and the NFL believes the Raiders staffer eluded those checkpoints.

Each and every year there are players who are available for trade , but there never seem to be many trades before the NFL trade deadline . This seasons trade deadline is coming up very quickly on October 28th and there are a few different players that could be moved . More than likely this year

These five players are likely available at the right price. There is always the chance that none of them end up getting moved before the trade deadline , but they seem like some of the likeliest names to be moved . Do you think these five players could be moved before the trade deadline this season?

The NFL trade deadline is approaching, and rumors are already swirling about potential players who could be dealt before Nov. 3. While plenty of marquee names will be thrown around in the weeks leading up to the deadline, some of them are already being overrated.

Father Time is undefeated. For many of the NFL’s biggest stars, years of fighting through injuries have taken a toll on their bodies. Unfortunately, for the likes of A.J. Green and Alshon Jeffery, this means their name recognition is greater than their on-field contributions.

NFL reportedly discussing playoff bubble following coronavirus cases

  NFL reportedly discussing playoff bubble following coronavirus cases The NFL has already postponed one game and had players test positive for the coronavirus on multiple teams, which has led to talk of potentially needing a bubble plan going forward. That is still on the table, at least for the postseason. © Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports Discussions about playing games in a postseason bubble have picked up for the NFL internally, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. The most viable plan would involve the two conference championship games being played in a bubble.

The approaching NFL trade deadline (Oct. But these players could serve as centerpieces of trade packages after the season once the draft order is unveiled, if not In a Week 7 loss to Jacksonville en route to 0-7, he tossed three interceptions in a span of five attempts in the fourth quarter, one a pick-six.

Here are five players that could be traded during this year's draft. Yannick Ngakoue, defensive end, Jacksonville Jaguars. If any star player is going to be moved However, getting something for Stills is better than paying million for a player who has similar skills as every receiver on the Houston roster.

Of course, they aren’t alone. From Pro Bowl sensations to former top-40 draft picks, big names are still mentioned as impactful additions available for trade. Here are five overrated players who could be moved by the NFL trade deadline.

A.J. Green, wide receiver, Cincinnati Bengals

Green was one of the best receivers in the NFL during his prime. A seven-time Pro Bowl selection, he posted incredible numbers despite never playing with a great quarterback. Yet, the 6-foot-4 receiver kept putting up gaudy stats every time he touched the field. Sadly, due to recent injuries, that’s no longer the case.

He missed the entire 2019 season with an ankle injury, adding to a growing list of lower-body problems. While he hasn’t missed a game this year, he doesn’t look like the same player. Green is averaging 8.5 yards per catch, a steep drop from his career averages (14.7). Just as concerning, his career-worst catch rate (42.4 percent) this season. The Bengals would be wise to trade him, netting a mid-round pick and opening up the No. 2 role for Tee Higgins. A change of scenery might help Green, but it’s time for everyone to realize he is a shadow of his former self.

The trade winds have already been swirling as Tuesday's deadline looms but are there more moves on the way? NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport As Duke Tobin will offer teams, they aren't in the business of sending away good players . The only one it seems who has a chance at being traded is

The Jalen Ramsey trade seems imminent, but with the NFL trade deadline a month away, let’s take a look at other NFL trades that could go down. With the

Le’Veon Bell, running back, New York Jets

The NFL knows the story with Bell. While he generated some interest before the 2019 trade deadline, New York never got the offer it wanted. After failing to find him a new home this offseason, the Jets rolled with Bell into the season and hoped he would rebuild some of his value. He hasn’t come close to accomplishing that.

While Bell carries a $15.47 million cap hit this season, he can easily be cut in a cap-saving move next spring. He struggled in training camp, and that trend will likely continue upon his return in Week 5. It would be a wise move for the Jets to trade Bell for any draft pick, even a 2021 seventh-round selection. Bell can make a positive impact in a quality offense, but his days of being a Pro Bowl player are long gone.

Ryan Kerrigan, edge-rusher, Washington Football Team

Kerrigan has earned four Pro Bowl selections since joining Washington as a 2011 first-round pick. Along the way, he became the face of its defense and the franchise leader in sacks (92). While Ron Rivera might keep him, valuing depth off the edge, now is the time to move Kerrigan.

NFL implements COVID policy changes; Raiders players fined

  NFL implements COVID policy changes; Raiders players fined In response to the growing number of positive COVID-19 tests around the league, the NFL is taking action. In a call with all 32 teams the league office laid out a slew of new policy changes, and sternly warned teams about the consequences of not following them. © Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports In the memo recapping the call, which you can read courtesy of this tweet from Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, they laid out some new protocols.

Now we ' re going to look at five players who could be traded before Monday's 8 p.m. ET deadline . These are players who may be deemed too pricey Boston is trying to trim payroll and Bradley is an obvious piece to move . The bet here is new baseball operations head Chaim Boom can find a trade

The NFL trade deadline is Oct. 29, and if recent seasons are any indication, there could be plenty of wheeling and dealing. These 25 players are top trade candidates as we get closer to the deadline .

It’s about obtaining value, while it still exists. Kerrigan delivered a two-sack performance in Week 1 and hasn’t done anything since. Despite seeing more snaps, the veteran edge-rusher hasn’t recorded a quarterback hit or a tackle for loss in the past three games. He has a 54.9 grade from Pro Football Focus, a steep drop from his usual standard. Kerrigan could still be a situational pass-rusher for a contender, but his best days are far behind him.

Alshon Jeffery, wide receiver, Philadelphia Eagles

Since joining the Eagles in 2017, Jeffery has given everything he has in him for this team. He has played through cracked ribs, a torn rotator cuff and suffered a Lisfranc injury during the 2019 season. We’ve seen the 6-foot-3 receiver have some incredible moments, using his size and physicality to dominate defensive backs. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to play this season and will miss Week 5 with an illness.

Blockbuster moves we’d love to see before NFL trade deadline

  Blockbuster moves we’d love to see before NFL trade deadline The 2020 NFL trade deadline is less than a month away. The common theme around the NFL right now is that said trade deadline will be more active than in the past. This is interesting given that recent years have seen a bevy of trade activity around Halloween. © Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports Is there a scenario where the Bengals would trade superstar wide receiver A.J. Green? A total of four teams find themselves without a win at the quarter pole of the season. Another six teams are undefeated. These are among those we expect to be most active.

As the NFL trade deadline approaches, here are some deals that make sense, including a swap of The NFL 's trade deadline has moved back to Halloween this season, but Both players can help contenders immediately in different ways. Raiders WR Amari Cooper for Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul.

Even with Mack in Chicago and Cooper in Dallas, the Raiders still have roster value that could be attractive to other teams. After all, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie did say no player is untouchable. Carr might be at this stage. It seems highly unlikely he'll be moved during the season

Jeffery is owed $13 million next season and is a guarantee to be cut next spring. However, the Eagles are likely going to shop him around the league before that happens. He could draw some interest, but Philadelphia won’t get much back. It’s possible he can make an impact as a complementary weapon, but trading for Jeffery and hoping he stays healthy is a massive gamble.

Kerryon Johnson, running back, Detroit Lions

A darling of draft analysts, many believed Detroit landed its featured running back in 2018 with the No. 43 pick. Johnson impressed in his first season, averaging 5.4 yards per carry and racking up 854 total yards. Since then, the former Auburn star has slid further down the depth chart.

Adrian Peterson will continue to handle a majority of the carries. At the same time, D’Andre Swift dominates as a pass-catching threat and will earn an even larger role moving forward. It makes Johnson expendable. The thing is, Johnson is averaging just 3.4 yards per carry this season. After spending a top-50 pick on him a few years ago, the Lions might be fortunate to receive a fifth-round pick for Johnson at the trade deadline.

Philadelphia Eagles open to Zach Ertz trade? .
Even if Ertz has declined slightly, he would still generate plenty of interest before the NFL trade deadline. Teams such as the Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers could all benefit from adding Ertz to their offense.The Eagles might have to settle for a mid-round pick in return, but it’s a better outcome than losing Ertz next offseason for nothing. It might also give him a chance to compete for a Super Bowl, which probably won’t happen this year in Philadelphia.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.
