The NFL trade deadline ends Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 4 p.m. ET, and we're taking a look at the latest rumors and rumblings of players who could get dealt. TheMMQB's Peter King doesn't anticipate an active NFL trade deadline, but says that Denver Broncos cornerback Tony Carter could be one the block, as well as Buccaneers RB Doug Martin, and the Patriots may be interested. I said on NBC Sunday night that you could have Denver cornerback Tony Carter (everyone wants corners) for a mid- to late-round pick, and Mike Florio reported that the Patriots could be in the market for Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin, who is having an awful year and hurt an ankle Sunday. Ahh, that Tampa-to-New England pipeline. Alive and well. … Carter played in 12 games last season at cornerback, starting twice. However, the additions of Aqib Talib and Bradley Roby buried him on the depth chart, and he has now only appeared in three games all season, notching two tackles. As for the Buccaneers, they are also shipping WR Vincent Jackson, and they're reportedly seeking a second-round pick for him, per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, who also mentions the Browns as a team to watch for him. Jackson is unlikely to be still getting his $10M annual salary from the Bucs by the time they turn things around, and while you don't have to make a move and he's still a quality receiver, this team might as well get as young as possible.
Patriots may eye Doug Martin; Michael Griffin on block
