The 2022 NFL trade deadline has already bucked the trend of being a rather uneventful in-season milestone for the league.
There have already been seven trades during the 2022 NFL season, and six of them were agreed upon during the two weeks ahead of the trade deadline. The most notable player to switch teams was Christian McCaffrey, who was traded from the Panthers to the 49ers on Oct. 20.
The Panthers’ decision to trade McCaffrey — a star, three-down running back — seemed to take the lid off the NFL’s reluctance to swing deals. The Jets were able to acquire James Robinson while veteran pass rusher Robert Quinn and 2021 first-round pick Kadarius Toney were sent to the Eagles and Chiefs, respectively, in exchange for draft capital.
Now, as the NFL trade deadline for 2022 approaches, fans have just one question remaining. Who will be the next player traded?
There are plenty of potential trade targets still available. Saints running back Alvin Kamara, Browns running back Kareem Hunt and Broncos receiver Jerry Jeudy are among the most recognizable players involved in swirling trade rumors, so it will be interesting to see whether any of them are dealt.
Here are all the trades completed ahead of the 2022 NFL trade deadline as well as the latest news and rumors about those potential top trade targets.
