We looked at the AFC teams in our last article, now we transition to the NFC trade assets and targets.

Dallas Cowboys

Asset: Tony Pollard RB

Ezekiel Elliot is back to his old self, and although Pollard adds quality depth to Dallas they can shore up their defense moving this asset.

Target: Mario Addison DE, Buffalo

Dallas is a legit Super Bowl contender, but the defense has room to improve.

New York Giants

Asset: Darius Slayton WR

Slayton is productive but not needed in NY anymore. Shepard is another option, but any team looking for a solid WR should call the Giants.

Target: Mike Remmers OT, Kansas City

The Chiefs are very deep at OL and Remmers knows the Giants already. NY needs to improve its line.

Philadelphia Eagles

Asset: Derek Barnett DE

Barnett has a lot of value for a contending team and the Eagles are in a rebuild and may be willing to sell their young defender.

Target: N’Keal Harry WR, New England

Harry has underachieved for the Patriots so the Eagles can acquire him cheap and hope he starts to reach his potential.

Washington Football Team

Asset: Matt Ioannidis DT

The WFT has plenty of D Line depth, and teams will be hunting for a starter-level player to help their team.

Target: Mitchell Trubisky QB, Buffalo

Talent does not disappear overnight. Trubisky will be an NFL starter again and the WFT would be a great fit.

Nick Foles wants out of Chicago

Chicago Bears

Asset: Nick Foles QB

Foles will not take a team to the Super Bowl again but he can provide an experienced backup for a contending team that lacks depth at the position.

Target: James Washington WR, Pittsburgh

The Bears need help on offense and there are several options on the market this year.

Detroit Lions

Asset: Michael Brockers DE

Brockers came to Detriot this offseason and is one of the only legit trade assets the Lions have.

Target: Draft Capital

The Lions are looking only to the future and they need draft picks not players.

Green Bay Packers

Asset: Kevin King CB

King has great physical attributes but the Packer faithful do not trust him. A team that has no depth at CB can get King for a late-round draft pick.

Target: Noah Igbinoghene CB, Miami

The Packers like to trade position for position when they make deals near the deadline. They have already added two defenders recently they will continue to strengthen their defense if they can find a partner.

Minnesota Vikings

Asset: Stephen Weatherly DE

The Vikings’ actions have proven they would love to pass Weatherly to another team, and he could help someone.

Target: Hayden Hurst TE, Atlanta

With Pitts in Atlanta, Hurst becomes available and would give a boost to the passing game in Minnesota.

Atlanta Falcons

Asset: Fabian Moreau CB

Another rebuilding team, another valuable asset that several teams would love to have.

Target: Draft picks

Like the Lions, one player will not turn this team around. The Falcons must look to the future.

Carolina Panthers

Asset: Yetur Gross-Matos DE

Teams love young players who have not worked out for the team that drafted them. Yetur still has value but not for long.

Target: Kentavius Street DT, San Francisco

Street is available and would give instant help to the Panthers’ defense.

New Orleans Saints

Asset: Marcus Williams S

The Saints have three safeties, all of them have value so they should expect some phone calls this weekend.

Target: Sterling Shepard WR, New York

The Saints need help on offense, and Shepard brings a huge upgrade to the WR corps.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Asset: No Asset

The Bucs have their team set as they try to repeat

Target: No Target

The Bucs will stand pat at the deadline, they have already made their acquisitions for the year.

Arizona Cardinals

Asset: Devon Kennard LB

Arizona has some holes on defense but Kennard is someone who could draw interest from other teams that Arizona would be willing to part with.

Target: Shaq Lawson DE, New York Jets

With the loss of JJ Watt for the season, the Cardinals should go all-in on this season, and get a replacement for Watt.

Los Angeles Rams

Asset: Troy Reeder LB

Reeder has played every game and has two interceptions, enough production to have value, not enough to be taken off the block.

Target: Mike Gesicki TE, Miami

The Rams need help at RB, but a greater need at TE. Gesicki is on a bad team which makes him available for a contender if the price is right.

San Francisco 49ers

Asset: Brandon Aiyuk WR

The young WR seems to have fallen from grace in San Fran, but he is a gifted athlete that could find more playing time elsewhere.

Target: DeVante Parker WR, Miami

Last year they went with Emmanuel Sanders, this year they might look to add a different veteran WR.

Seattle Seahawks

Asset: Jamal Adams S

Divas are not worth the drama when the team is not good.

Target: Drew Lock QB, Denver

Russell Wilson is still the starter, but adding a young talent like Lock adds insurance to the QB room.
