NFL Pushes Back Trade Deadline Due To Hurricane Sandy
The NFL’s trade deadline was scheduled for tomorrow. However, Hurricane Sandy has complicated matters, forcing the NFL to push back to the trade deadline back 48 hours.
Teams now have until 3:00 (CT) on Thursday afternoon to pull the trigger on potential trades. Several big names are rumored to be on the trading block, including a few former Pro Bowl running backs. Rams RB Steven Jackson and Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (pictured left) are both topics of trade discussion.
Today’s news marks the second time this year the trade deadline has been pushed back. Shortly before the season, the player’s union switched the deadline before the season from after Week 6 to after Week 8.
