With the NFL trade deadline passing at 2 p.m. MT on Tuesday, the Denver Broncos ended up not moving any pieces or adding any. As Mike Klis confirmed just moments before the deadline, the team received trade offers but remain confident in the group of players they have after winning back-to-back games and getting into the thick of the AFC playoff picture.

The same could not be said for the rest of the league and some big moves were made, with most notably the Washington Commanders. Overall, however, it was a relatively quiet trade day. Not a whole lot of players were moved. The San Francisco 49ers continued adding to their formidable defense, while the Commanders are looking towards the future with their defense. The Minnesota Vikings snagged a quarterback they hope will be able to pick up the mantle left by injured Kirk Cousins.
NFL Trade Deadline Moves
Seattle Seahawks trade for Giants defensive lineman Leonard Williams
Chicago Bears trade for Commanders edge rusher Montez Sweat
Minnesota Vikings trade for Cardinals quarterback Josh Dobbs
The Vikings have a massive hole on offense after Kirk Cousins went down with a season-ending injury. Dobbs has been playing well for the Cardinals and with Kyler Murray on his way back, the Vikings were able to steal him away for a sixth and seventh-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.
Jacksonville Jaguars trade for Vikings guard Ezra Cleveland
The Jaguars sent a sixth-round pick to the Vikings for offensive guard Ezra Cleveland. Head Coach Doug Pederson was happy about the trade, telling The Pat McAfee Show, “Obviously, getting a good player to come in here and help us, and we’ve already got a good offensive line, and Ezra can come in and give us some really good depth, and it’s just a matter of getting him caught up and getting him in the room with a really good offensive line- guys like Brandon Scherff, he’s the leader in there, and Luke Fortner, and you look at these guys- Cam Robinson, Walker Little, these guys are just busting their tail every week. So getting a guy like Ezra, his caliber, we got a starting-type guard, really solidifies our offensive line and makes us better.”
San Francisco 49ers trade for Commanders pass rusher Chase Young
The 49ers were able to send just a third-round pick to the Commanders for the services of Chase Young. Young will be a free agent after this season, so the 49ers will get a chance to re-sign the 24-year old pass rusher to a long-term deal after the season.
Detroit Lions trade for Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones
Buffalo Bills trade for defensive back Rasul Douglas
The Buffalo Bills have sent a third-round pick from the 2024 NFL Draft to acquire Green Bay Packers defensive back Rasul Douglas. The deal included the Packers fifth-round in return as well. The 28-year-old had just restructured his deal to free up cap space this offseason shifting cap hits to future years, but that would be the Bills problem now.
