Patriots unlikely to trade reigning DPOY Stephon Gilmore?
In addition to the high-level draft picks that a Gilmore trade would entail, the acquiring team must also be prepared to pony up a massive extension soon. Gilmore’s contract runs through the 2021 campaign, and even though he is not performing at the same level this year as he was in 2019, he will surely demand a top-of-the-market contract this offseason.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Cowboys trade Pro Bowler Everson Griffen to the Lions
Dallas acquired a conditional sixth-round pick in return for the four-time Pro Bowl performer. The #Lions give up a conditional 6th rounder for Griffen. https://t.co/huGRSdMotx— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 27, 2020 This is somewhat of a surprising move in that the Cowboys signed Griffen to a one-year, $6 million contract about 2.5 months ago. The former Minnesota Vikings star recorded six quarterback hits and 2.5 sacks in seven games with the Cowboys this season.Is this an indication that the Cowboys are giving up on the 2020 NFL season?Owner Jerry Jones spoke with a local radio station on Tuesday.

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.
