5 big NFL trades that happened at deadline

The NFL's trade deadline arrived on Tuesday, October 30, with several teams making moves.


Golden Tate traded to Eagles

Ahead of Tuesday's deadline, Lions fans were shocked, as the team parted ways with Tate. He's been on the Detroit roster since 2014, after previously starting his career in Seattle. Tate has 581 career receptions for nearly 7,000 yards and 37 touchdowns. He'll now give Carson Wentz another potential weapon on the field.


Demaryius Thomas traded to Texans

Thomas has only played for one team in his entire career: the Denver Broncos. Now he'll suit up for the Houston Texans, who are on the verge of a playoff push. Thomas has career receiving numbers of 655 receptions for 9,055 yards and 60 touchdowns. Texans fans are hoping for a nice connection, or two, between Deshaun Watson and Thomas.


Dante Fowler traded to Rams

The Rams defense may have become even strong with Tuesday's trade. Los Angeles acquired Dante Fowler from the Jacksonville Jaguars, while sending them a third-round draft pick for next spring and a 2020 fifth-round pick. Fowler was a former No. 3 overall pick in the NFL draft and joins Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh, and Michael Brockers as first-round picks on the defensive line.


Ha Ha Clinton-Dix traded to Redskins

Just like the Rams beefed up their defense on Tuesday, so did the Washington Redskins. They sent a fourth-round pick to the Green Bay Packers for safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. He's on the final year of a five-year rookie contract. Some feel this could end up becoming a rental deal for the Redskins, but he'll join D.J. Swearing, who's currently on a push toward the Pro Bowl. Adding to the benefits of having Clinton-Dix, is that he's been healthy all his career, with 55 straight starts.


Ty Montgomery traded to Ravens

A few days ago, running back Ty Montgomery fumbled the ball away during the Packers' 29-27 loss against the Rams. Now, he's headed to the Baltimore Ravens in a trade. Green Bay is getting a 2020 NFL seventh-round draft pick in exchange.
