The NFL trade deadline is the cutoff for any trades between NFL teams. After the deadline, teams cannot trade for players until the new league year begins on March 13, 2024.


The 2023 NFL trade deadline is 4 p.m. EST on Tuesday, Oct. 31.

After that point, teams can acquire new players only through free agency or the waiver wire.


Last year, 10 trades were executed in the week leading up to the deadline after a high of just five such trades in a single season over the decade prior. These weren’t just small deals for depth, either, with big-name players such as Christian McCaffreyBradley ChubbRoquan SmithT.J. HockensonCalvin Ridley and Chase Claypool moved for packages that included first- or second-round picks.

• Mecole Hardman reunites with Chiefs: The Jets were wise to admit their mistake in free agency and move on, and the Chiefs added a familiar face to their offense.

• Denver Broncos should be sellers: Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Josey Jewell, Justin Simmons, Garett Bolles and Patrick Surtain II should be being shopped ahead of Tuesday's deadline.

• Jaguars should be buyers: This is almost certainly the final season where quarterback Trevor Lawrence is cheap from both a cash and cap perspective, so why not push your chips in and make a move at the deadline to lock in an AFC South title and even push for a top seed in the conference?

• Panthers get a new WR1: Courtland Sutton can provide a big-bodied target that routinely boxes out defenders and wins on jump balls, an element from which Bryce Young could benefit.

• Jets add Hunter Renfrow: Renfrow has been buried on the depth chart in this Raiders offense and has been shopped for weeks, with nine targets on the season and just 31 offensive snaps over the past two weeks.
