After the busiest NFL trade deadline day in history this past Tuesday, some teams are looking to make it even busier in the future according to ESPN.
According to the report, multiple teams reached out to the NFL office last week to inquire about pushing the trade deadline back from its current spot after Week 8 to after either Week 10 or Week 12.
The issue is expected to be raised at the at the NFL's general manager committee meetings later in November, and then could be discussed further and presented to vote at the league's owners meetings in the spring, according to the report.
A later trade deadline could possibly lead to even more activity because teams would have more knowledge as to whether they are actually contenders or pretenders, especially with the end of the season being even closer to the deadline.
The NFL moved the trade deadline date in 2012, pushing it back two weeks from the Tuesday after Week 6 to the Tuesday after Week 8 in an attempt to encourage more trades.
Below is a quick recap of some of the biggest moves made last week at the trade deadline. If the trade deadline were to be pushed back even later, just imagine how many more players could be changing places.
Here's a quick rundown of some of the more notable deals that occurred:
- Lions deal Pro Bowl tight end T.J. Hockenson to rival Vikings in swap of draft picks
- Bears acquire Chase Claypool from Steelers for second-rounder
- Dolphins acquire Broncos' Bradley Chubb for first-round pick, Chase Edmonds
- 49ers send veteran Jeff Wilson Jr. to Dolphins for draft pick
- Falcons deal suspended wide receiver Calvin Ridley to Jaguars
- Steelers deal for Commanders disgruntled cornerback William Jackson
- Bills add to potent offense, acquire pass-catching RB Nyheim Hines from Colts
