Notable NFL trade deadline moves from last 10 years


The NFL trade deadline is always one of the most anticipated times of the season, yet usually it is quite anti-climactic.

Most of the time, the things we want or think will happen do not, but in the past couple of years, things actually have been quite interesting, including Jimmy Garoppolo's trade to the 49ers in 2017 and Von Miller’s leap to the Rams last season. 

Other blockbuster deals take place well ahead of the actual deadline day. The San Francisco 49ers shook up the NFL landscape by acquiring star running back Christian McCaffrey from the Carolina Panthers in exchange for four draft picks late Thursday night, over a week before the deadline.
