Trade Ideas

Here are five trades the writers at would like to see happen by next week’s trade deadline. These are just speculative ideas, but they’re interesting nonetheless.

For a more in-depth look at logic behind these suggestions, head over to

Jason Pierre-Paul

  • Mike Garafolo reports that DE Jason Pierre-Paul‘s new deal with the Giants includes $1.5 million base salary guarantees, and another $1.5 million in per-game roster bonuses.
  • JPP’s playtime and sack incentives can increase the deal up $8.7 million, which is what he would have earned under the franchise tender, according to Garafolo.
  • In the end, if Pierre-Paul is active for seven games, he’ll make $3 million at least before testing the open market next year.
  • Aaron Wilson reports that the Giants received a roster exemption for Pierre-Paul that expires on November 9.


  • Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict, who underwent microfracture knee surgery during the offseason, will return to practice on Thursday. (Jim Owczarski)
  • According to Ian Rapoport, Burfict received clearance from Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who performed his surgery, last night.
  • Rapoport adds that Burfict hasn’t been ruled out for Sunday’s game as of now.


  • Browns HC Mike Pettine said of QB Josh McCown: “He is truly day-to-day, hoping he might be able to practice tomorrow.” (Sirius XM NFL Radio)
  • Regarding Johnny Manziel, Pettine said: “[F]rom a football standpoint the trust factor has improved dramatically with Manziel.” (Sirius XM NFL Radio)
