In a strange year expectations for a big trade deadline in the NFL is higher than ever.
The first two trades that could shift some things have already come down and as more happen we will keep you updated.
First, the San Francisco 49ers traded away their big free agent splash from 2019:
49ers traded LB Kwon Alexander traded to the Saints, source tells ESPN.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 2, 2020
The 49ers trading away Kwon Alexander is a bit surprising, since the 49ers are still in contention for the playoffs.
However, they lost two games in the NFC West and sit at 4-4. Seems a bit of a rush, but they've had a ton of injuries as well, including Alexander. When healthy, Alexander will give the Saints some juice.
And another trade: Chargers dealing DB Desmond King to the Titans, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 2, 2020
I know a number of Cardinals fans were interested in Desmond King, we'll see what the compensation is, but the Titans just got better defensively after really struggling this year compared to last year.
We will update with more as things come in.
