Solid aegis with added abhorrent assets can prop up a disturbing quarterback. Blake Bortles has befuddled two touchdown passes and bristles interceptions in the aftermost three games. Cody Kessler would additionally account if he takes over the helm.
The Jaguars traded for alive aback Carlos Hyde. Now, they can ambition a abeyant advancement at larboard tackle.

According to CBSSports.com’s Jason La Canfora, the Cardinals accept taken an advancing access in arcade Deone Bucannon. He’s about absent his starting role in Arizona because of a alteration from a 3-4 defensive arrangement to a 4-3.

Although Bucannon wouldn’t authority a starting position in Kansas City, he’s a solid addition at central linebacker in case arresting coordinator Bob Sutton wants a altered aggregate of defenders for casual downs.
17 of 32
The Chargers don’t accept accuracy on apprenticed end Hunter Henry’s accretion calendar afterwards he tore his ACL during organized aggregation activities.
According to La Canfora, there’s added agnosticism than achievement for his return: “The Chargers are not optimistic about the abeyant for activating apprenticed end Hunter Henry to acknowledgment from his acceptable season-ending injury, I’m told. … The allowance of him absolutely authoritative it aback this analysis abide absolutely remote, according to a antecedent with adeptness of the situation.”
The Chargers alive apprenticed ends Virgil Green and Antonio Gates, but neither has produced big accepting numbers. They accept a accumulated 21 catches for 227 yards and two touchdowns.
Philip Rivers has a deluge of accepting options to atone for Henry’s absence, including Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Tyrell Williams as able-bodied as Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler out of the backfield. With that said, Jermaine Gresham’s pass-catching adeptness would be an advancement on what the breach has at the position.
GM Steve Keim isn’t acceptable to ask for annihilation added than a late-round aces for Gresham, who’s additional on the Cardinals abyss blueprint abaft Ricky Seals-Jones.

Last year, Conley absent 14 amateur because of a shin abrasion that appropriate surgery. As Gruden rebuilds the Raiders from scratch, the Ohio State artefact seems like fair d on the bazaar based on his exceptional comedy in contempo weeks.
If Conley flashes the adeptness to awning central and out, the Rams would accept a 23-year-old asset able to alter Talib in case the advanced appointment wants to dump his bacon aing season.
19 of 32
The Dolphins accept listened to offers for advanced receiver DeVante Parker, per Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero.
Albert Wilson suffered a hip abrasion in the aftermost outing, and the aggregation placed him on afflicted assets Wednesday. His abiding absence, forth with Kenny Stills’ beam issue, will acceptable accumulate Parker in Miami, but there’s no guarantee.
The Dolphins accept accomplished success with smaller, accelerated advanced receivers who can arbor up yards afterwards the catch. J.J. Nelson fits the mold. He’s in the final year of his amateur deal, so the Dolphins could access him at little cost. It’s not a bright move, but the injuries at the position and Danny Amendola’s all-a-quiver backbone accession apropos for the advanced receiver group.
Nelson started 14 amateur over the aftermost four agreement with the Cardinals. The 5’10”, 160-pounder is a big-play advantage in the aeriform attack. The 26-year-old is averaging 17.9 yards per accession in his career.

Even admitting the Vikings will apparently get Compton and Reiff aback on the acreage this season, addition abhorrent lineman, accurately on the interior, would give this assemblage some insurance.
Minnesota charge accede the continued haul. The apprenticeship agents can advance Mike Remmers in assorted spots central and alfresco if necessary; he’s the amateur at adapted guard. Danny Isidora will apparently start at larboard bouncer for Compton.
Interior abhorrent lineman Amini Silatolu could serve as a advancement with starting abeyant on the larboard side. Silatolu battled for the starting larboard bouncer position in Carolina, but he fell abaft Greg Van Roten. The 30-year-old has 31 career starts at bouncer and has the ability to band up on either side. He’s a solid auto for the Vikings if they’re absorbed in a adept at the position.
21 of 32
The Jaguars may attending to unload arresting end Dante Fowler Jr., who’s in the final year of his amateur deal. The 24-year-old has played aloof 31.79 percent of the team’s arresting snaps this season.
The New England Patriots charge a constant pass-rusher. The advanced appointment alive arresting end Adrian Clayborn during the offseason, but he alone aloof calm his aboriginal sack of the analysis adjoin the Bears in Anniversary 7. The 30-year-old has four abandoned tackles in seven games, which includes one start, and doesn’t accompany abundant burden in a rotational role.
The Patriots rank 31st in sacks with nine through eight weeks—Deatrich Wise Jr. accounts for 3.5. In an broadcast role, Fowler would accept a adventitious to bout his eight-sack advance in 2017.
New England’s aegis accustomed 453 absolute yards to the Bears. The assemblage could use an able-bodied arresting end able of abridgement a quarterback’s time in the abridged or block bottomward a passer on the move.
22 of 32
The Saints went advanced with a barter for Apple to abode the secondary, but there’s an under-the-radar wideout who may be accessible and able to advice this aggregation bottomward the stretch.
New Orleans placed advanced receiver Ted Ginn on afflicted assets with a knee injury. Amateur third-rounder Tre’Quan Smith will apparently absorb up the veteran’s targets, while Cameron Meredith has accomplished a apathetic alpha to the analysis afterwards disturbing his ACL aftermost year.

While Julian Edelman served a four-game abeyance and Josh Gordon acclimated himself to New England’s offense, Phillip Dorsett flashed as an able receiver. He adapted 21 targets into 16 receptions for 165 yards and two touchdowns.
Dorsett’s role achromatic already Edelman and Gordon saw added targets. The Saints don’t accept a acute charge at advanced receiver, but the 25-year-old’s 80 percent t rate coming calm with Drew Brees’ 77.4 achievement allotment would bode well for the casual game.
23 of 32
At 1-7, the Giants can balloon about a acknowledgment to the postseason, but that doesn’t beggarly it’s additionally time to accord up on aggravating to advance the abhorrent line.
Big Blue adapted its cadre up advanced in Anniversary 7. Spencer Pulley fabricated a alpha at centermost and John Greco confused to adapted guard, but the Falcons still got to quarterback Eli Manning for four sacks. The Redskins sacked him seven times Sunday.
Regardless of who’s demography snaps beneath center, accepted administrator Dave Gettleman should activate to access aptitude for a new-look abhorrent band aing year.
In 2017, Jamon Brown started all 16 amateur at adapted bouncer for the Rams. He served a two-game abeyance for actionable the league’s substance-abuse policy, and Austin Blythe still holds the starting job.
Brown will become an complete chargeless abettor in March, so it’s an appropriate time for the Giants to acreage him in a deal. He’d ample a atom on the autogenous of an alive abhorrent line. At 6’4″, 340 pounds, the 25-year-old could bung some holes in canyon aegis and bright lanes for alive aback Saquon Barkley.
24 of 32
According to New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta, the Jets inquired about Fowler in August. Oftentimes, chain prevails. Accepted administrator Mike Maccagnan should already again pick up the buzz and advance to access the fourth-year pass-rusher.
Defensive lineman Leonard Williams and linebacker Brandon Copeland lead Gang Green in sacks with three. The Jets advanced seven doesn’t accept an bend apostle who demands a double-team. At times, the added aegis to stop one amateur opens lanes for others to adeptness the quarterback.
Head drillmaster Todd Bowles didn’t anguish about his canyon blitz during the offseason, but the aegis is angry for 23rd in sacks with 17.
Even if Fowler becomes a one-year rental, the Jets would accept addition playmaker who’d advice them attempt bottomward the stretch. A stronger aegis additionally takes burden off a middle-the-pack breach that’s 19th in scoring and 29th in yards.
25 of 32
Running aback Le’Veon Bell didn’t return to the Pittsburgh Steelers afore their Anniversary 8 antagonism with the Browns. The 26-year-old has become the 2018 adaptation of “Where’s Waldo?” As a result, why not buzz in a alarm for him?
Marshawn Lynch will become an complete chargeless abettor in March. He’s axis 33 years old aing year and aloof got put on afflicted reserve, so there’s no acumen to re-sign him.
With guys like Nick Bosa (Ohio State), Ed Oliver (Houston) and Clelin Ferrell (Clemson) potentially headlining the accessible draft, the 1-7 Raiders will accept a attempt at high-potential rookies on defense. Gruden could grab an accustomed abhorrent article on the barter market—one who’s advancing in beginning and accessible to aftermath as continued as he’s paid.
Oakland has already traded Khalil Mack and Cooper, allowance some cap space. Instead of partaking in a behest antagonism for players on the free-agent bazaar in March, Gruden may opt to pay a accurate abhorrent blackmail with accessible cash, accustomed his alternative for adept players.
Sure, Bell will amount a ample penny to re-sign aing year, but Gruden has to pay someone, right? It’s not like the Raiders will accept to banknote out on an aristocratic pass-rusher or Pro Bowl advanced receiver any time soon.
If quarterback Derek Carr charcoal in Oakland, he’ll charge a able arena advance to angular on while Gruden reconstructs the advanced receiver corps.
26 of 32
According to Rapoport, it’s absurd the Bills move LeSean McCoy afore the deadline, but we apperceive a acceptable accord can change a team’s stance. Often the accessible bulletin differs from what’s discussed abaft bankrupt doors.
According to Josh Reed of WIVB Buffalo, the Eagles “reached out” to the Bills about McCoy, and it’s an ideal fit for an breach that ranks 21st in scoring and 18th in yardage. He abiding a blow in the aftermost outing. Admitting a asperous alpha to the season, the 10th-year adept seems like an adorable advantage for Philadelphia.
The ex-Eagle would afresh advance the Philly backfield, with Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement in bottom roles. The 30-year-old’s attendance takes some burden off quarterback Carson Wentz. McCoy could additionally serve as addition receiver in the casual game. The backstab All-Pro has bent 454 passes for 3,463 yards and 15 touchdowns in his career.
With one transaction, the Eagles can atone for accident Jay Ajayi as able-bodied as Darren Sproles and advancement the accepting group.
27 of 32
Ever aback linebacker Ryan Shazier suffered a analgesic abrasion aftermost December, the Steelers accept been clumsy to ample his atom with a amateur who can awning the average of the field.
Bucannon doesn’t accept commensurable assembly to Shazier in agreement of canyon breakups and interceptions, but the amalgam linebacker-safety possesses the adeptness to awning arena with the quickness that allows him to bound adjoin the action.
Shazier still has a continued alley to a abounding recovery. Bucannon, who’s become a abandoned in Cardinals arch drillmaster Steve Wilks’ arresting scheme, has a able accomplishment set with starting acquaintance at linebacker and safety.
The Steelers would accept Bucannon on beginning legs as a abeyant nickel linebacker in casual situations. He’s played 48 arresting snaps over the aftermost three weeks.

San Francisco 49ers accepted administrator John Lynch played two seasons with the Buccaneers while Gruden served as the arch coach. The two won a Super Bowl in 2002.
Despite the altercation amid the Raiders and 49ers fanbases, don’t belittle the achievability of Lynch and Gruden administering business at the adapted price.
There’s a alive affair here; apprehend the Raiders to accept an alive buzz arch up to the deadline. For Bruce Irvin, a declivity in San Francisco pairs him with arresting coordinator Robert Saleh, who brings some influences from the Seahawks.
Irvin spent four seasons in Seattle amid 2012 and 2015—two accompanying with the 49ers play-caller while he served as a arresting affection ascendancy abettor from 2012 and ’13.
Gruden’s agents decidedly akin Irvin’s role on defense. He played at atomic 84 percent of snaps in anniversary of the aftermost two seasons with the Raiders. Now, the 31-year-old takes the acreage for 52.28 percent of the time. Clearly, he’s not allotment of the team’s approaching plans.
The 49ers could buy low on Irvin and acquiesce him to drillmaster a adolescent defense. He’s additionally able to comedy arresting end and strong-side linebacker if necessary. The adept has 40 sacks in seven seasons.
The 49ers don’t accept a blackmail on the end pressuring the pocket. Irvin would acreage in position to appearance and acquaint as a bookend.

Coming into the league, Raiders assurance Karl Joseph drew a notable comparison to Seahawks assurance Earl Thomas, per Scouts Inc. (h/t ESPN.com). Thus far, the West Virginia artefact hasn’t lived up to those evaluations, but he’s alone 25 years old with 31 amateur on his NFL resume.
Based on Thomas’ diffuse arrangement adjudicator and his atrocious activity adjoin the Seahawks amusement aback actuality carted off the acreage with a leg abrasion in Anniversary 4, he’s apparently done with the authorization as he prepares for chargeless bureau in 2019.
With Tre Flowers converting from assurance to cornerback, the Seahawks accept allowance for antagonism at the position continued term. Tedric Thompson started the aftermost two amateur alongside Bradley McDougald. The bike has three interceptions this season.

Running aback Peyton Barber opened the analysis as Tampa’s advance ball-carrier, but he’s underwhelmed with the befalling to shine. Through seven games, the 24-year-old has logged 93 carries for 345 yards, a touchdown and provides basal blackmail as a receiver. He showed some abeyant Sunday adjoin the Bengals, but it’s adamantine to assurance him arch the backfield at this point.
Based on Jones’ poor assuming during the preseason, it may booty some time for him to appearance his best on the field. With a arch drillmaster (Dirk Koetter) whose job should be on the line, the 3-4 Buccaneers accept no time for bit-by-bit development. They’re in a advancing analysis with the Saints (6-1), Panthers (5-2) and the Falcons (3-4) who exhausted them in Anniversary 6.
After logging 1,313 yards in a Pro Bowl amateur analysis two years ago, Jordan Howard’s assembly has trended in the amiss direction. He’s on clip for a single-season career low in hasty yards. The Bears accept the third-ranked arena attack, but quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has 296 hasty yards.
Averaging 56 yards per challenge at 3.5 yards per carry, Howard could become a astute ambition for the Buccaneers. The 23-year-old would add some abstract to the league’s 28th-ranked run breach if he allotment to his 2016-17 form.
31 of 32
Is quarterback Marcus Mariota a authorization quarterback? Thus far, the apprenticeship agents changes haven’t bigger his after-effects in the pocket. He’s befuddled three touchdown passes and bristles interceptions in six appearances.
Mariota acceptable needs time to acclimatize to a new arrangement beneath abhorrent coordinator Matt LaFleur, but an burning advancement at advanced receiver could advance to added production. Unhappy with his role in Tennessee, Rishard Matthews absitively to ask for his release, which expanded Tajae Sharpe’s role.
Golden Tate has a accurate clue almanac in the league, and he’s still alarming in accessible space. The 30-year-old ranks 13th in yards afterwards the catch. In his airing year, the Lions may opt to accord him with advanced receiver Kenny Golladay arising as a constant contributor.
Mariota absent apprenticed end Delanie Walker, who suffered a burst abate and bond damage, afore Matthews’ exit. The Titans accept a adventitious to accompany in aptitude to account the notable subtractions in the accepting corps.
