NFL teams have one last opportunity to really improve before the Nov. 2 trade deadline.

However, the amount of movement may be limited because of the salary-cap restrictions teams face this season. Currently, 23 franchises have less than $10 million in financial wiggle room, but those squads can make smaller moves or rework contracts for a possible deal.

The fact is every team could use improvements.

In the short term, potential trade proposals should target areas in need of immediate help. Those options should fall within the realm of possibility and make sense financially. To be clear, the following trade targets are favorable for the specific team being discussed, not necessarily the individual's current squad.


Arizona Cardinals: C Nick Martin

Rodney Hudson is currently dealing with injured ribs. He's out for at least another two games since he's on short-term injured reserve, but when healthy, he is one of the game's best centers. Without him, the Arizona Cardinals are a little soft along their offensive interior. 

Max Garcia held up relatively well against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, but he put a few bad reps against their talented defensive line on film, too. 

Nick Martin is a possible insurance plan, and the Las Vegas Raiders have moved forward with Andre James as their primary snapper. Martin is experienced, though, as the sixth-year veteran started 62 games over the previous four seasons. He can take over for Garcia if necessary or provide quality depth to all three interior line spots. 


Atlanta Falcons: WR Nick Westbrook-Ikhine

Nick Westbrook-Ikhine isn't a name many outside of the Tennessee Titans fanbase will know. This season, he is sixth on the team with 12 receptions for 125 yards. 

Possible interest from the Atlanta Falcons is based on a few factors.

First, the Falcons lack quality depth at wide receiver. Calvin Ridley returned to practice this week, and his inclusion will serve as a big boost to Atlanta's passing attack. From there, the franchise's wide receiver corps is highly suspect, as no other wideout has more than eight catches or 89 yards. 

Westbrook-Ikine also has a previous working relationship with Falcons head coach Arthur Smith, who previously served as the Titans offensive coordinator. Finally, the Falcons are barely under this year's salary cap, but Westbrook-Ikhine is still under an undrafted rookie deal.
