2017 NFL Trades

Although the NFL isn’t typically considered a trade-happy league, that reputation has been earned due to a lack of major trade-deadline activity, and doesn’t necessarily tell the whole story. In the NFL offseason, big-name players and early-round draft picks change hands with greater frequency, as trades serve as a key tool for teams looking to upgrade their rosters or accelerate a rebuild.

We’ve already seen a few trades consummated since the 2017 league year began on March 9th, and with the draft not too far off, several more deals figure to be completed this spring. We’ll track those moves – and the rest of the year’s trades, right up until the fall deadline – in this space.

      and they still have Malcolm Butler. Two number one corners, they should win another Lombardi next year.

      Yeah they basically gave up a first and second to get Cooks, Ealy, Allen and a 6th rounder. Aside from position juggling that is.

      We still have:
      2 in the third
      1 in fourth
      2 in fifth
      1 in second
      1 in seventh
      And we’ll possibly get a first and then some for Jimmy G so it all works out

        You wont be getting a 1st straight up for garapollo.

        49ers have their hearts set on cousins, bears signed glennon, jets wont be trading with the patriots, thus leaving the browns.

        Had the patriots taken garapollo the 32nd pick and a third for the 12th and 3rd switch a deal made sense.

        Patriots would have to deal their 2018 1st pick, a 3rd this year, and garapollo for anything in the top 15.

        If anything itll be the 33rd pick for garapollo straight up.

    Another note on the Patriots. There still is a chance they could get a first round pick for Jimmy G. The rich get richer

    Just remember, Pats looked like crap half the big game. The Falcons handed the win to New England with a bone headed offensive series where running three times inside the twenty five and kicking the field goal should of iced it and put your Patriots down two scores with no timeouts under two minutes to go.

      Not sure you can be down 25 points late into the 3rd quarter and have the game “handed” to you. The Patriots had some breaks go their way of course but they took care of busines when they had to.

    As much as i don’t like the patriots (current america’s team) i gotta recognizanthe great job they’ve made to work towards their preservation.
    Even though this is happening, indon’t think is healthy for the league to have a dinasty stay successfull to long

    Giants should move JPP for draft picks…… We could use the money on our offensive line
