2016 NFL trade deadline blog: RECAP of rumors, deals

The 2016 NFL trade deadline is set for 4 p.m. on Tuesday, November 1. Between now and the moment the clock strikes four on Tuesday afternoon, a final blitz of phone calls and trade discussions will take place. The results of those conversations will shape the present and future of the NFL.

Are the Giants going to truly enter the Joe Thomas sweepstakes? Can the Eagles go out and find a playmaker to add to an offense that desperately needs one, like, say Alshon Jeffery or Torrey Smith? Will the Jets actually consider deals for stars like Brandon Marshall or Sheldon Richardson?

With the Patriots, Cowboys and Vikings looking like the class of the NFL through eight weeks, every other team in the NFL needs to play catch up in order to dream on a Super Bowl run this season. The trade deadline is a chance to make that ground up.

With so many teams bunched in the NFC, a difference-making trade could be what separates a contender from a pretender down the stretch.

Follow along for every piece of news, rumor and update to fly out of NFL circles leading up to the deadline.
