The NFL trade deadline doesn’t always bring a ton of excitement, but this year a couple of defensive players did change teams. As with all DLF Instant Analysis articles, we’ll take a look not only at the players that moved, but also who fills the hole they leave behind.
Today we’re going to look at the two transactions from Tuesday. Pass rusher Dante Fowler went from the Jaguars to the Rams, while up north safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix left Green Bay and went east to Washington.
The interesting thing about both deals – from an NFL standpoint – is neither player is signed beyond this season. In essence, both of these are deals for rental players. This is common in the baseball world, but rarely seen in football. Both Fowler and Clinton-Dix could be on another team in 2019.
