10 NFL trade deadline candidates

The 2018 NFL season is nearing the halfway point, which also means that the trade deadline is looming. Clubs have until Oct. 30 to wheel and deal should they choose to, and given the increased trade activity in recent years, it should come as no surprise if some big names are moved.

Here’s a look at 10 players who could be traded ahead of the deadline.

10. Nick Foles, QB, Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles opted not to trade Super Bowl LII MVP Nick Foles this past offseason, and that proved to be the right decision as Carson Wentz took a little extra time before returning from a torn ACL. However, with Wentz now back in the starting role, Foles has once again been relegated to clipboard duty while a plethora of quarterback positions have opened up around the league. Perhaps more than any other backup quarterback in the NFL, Foles carries a tremendous value and could yield a good return for Philadelphia.


Arizona Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon blasts Madden over rating

Deone Bucannon

Arizona Cardinals linebacker Deone Bucannon had 112 tackles, three sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception last season. Those kinds of numbers earned him some respect around the league, but apparently the makers of Madden 17 are a little slow to catch on.

Bucannon has an overall rating of just 78 in the game. That’s not sitting well with him. He blasted the game’s Twitter account over his low rating:

“SMFH” is an acronym for shaking my bleeping head.

The highest-rated player on the Cardinals is DB Tyrann Mathieu, who has a 96. The Honey Badger thinks Madden hasn’t done their homework on Bucannon:

Maybe the tweet will get Madden’s attention and help the video game give him some respect when they do their reevaluation. At least he’s attacking his disappointment with his rating more directly than this Broncos QB.
