The NFL trading season ends Tuesday, Nov. 2 at 4 p.m. ET. Let's examine the 20 most appealing trade chips ahead of the deadline.


The chips

Deshaun Watson

A trade for Watson could be among the most complex in NFL history. The quarterback hasn't played this year amid 22 lawsuits from women who say he sexually assaulted them or committed sexual misconduct during massage sessions. Ten women have also filed criminal complaints. But teams have still explored the possibility of acquiring Watson, and it was reported Wednesday that the Miami Dolphins hope to complete a deal with the Houston Texans by the end of the week. It's possible Miami would send protected picks to Houston, as has been speculated, to safeguard itself in the event the quarterback is suspended or faces criminal prosecution.

Potential landing spots: Eagles, Dolphins


Xavien Howard

Howard pushed for an exit from Miami in the offseason but eventually came to terms on a reworked deal. However, the cornerback is unlikely to be happy for long, and with the Dolphins' playoff hopes all but over at 1-5, they would be wise to sell. Howard would fetch a high pick, which the Dolphins desperately need considering they're currently projected to give up their No. 3 pick to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Potential landing spots: 49ers, Bengals
