The NFL trade deadline was today, Tuesday, October 29, at 4 p.m. ET and we have now passed that mark. Generally the deadline comes and goes without a sound, but there were more rumors than usual heading up to this year’s deadline.
The main focus of all of the trade rumors was Minnesota Vikings five-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jared Allen, who was linked to the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos, who came in late, but did any team pull the trigger and make a deal happen before the clock struck 4 p.m.?
Unfortunately for Allen, he will remain in Minnesota, but there was one trade.
New England needed to bolster their front seven after injuries to Vince Wilfork and Jerod Mayo, so they made a deal to acquire defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga from Philly. The Patriots sent a fifth-round pick to Philadelphia and they will get a sixth-round pick back in return along with Sopoaga.
Among the players who were not traded are Josh Gordon, Kenny Britt, Anthony Dixon, Vinny Curry and Greg Little.
