The Houston Texans are prepared to keep Deshaun Watson past Tuesday's NFL trade deadline, league sources told ESPN. Although many in the Texans organization want to turn the page and move on from Watson as soon as possible, Houston will be ready to reopen trade discussions centered on the quarterback in the offseason, according to the sources. The 2021 NFL trade deadline officially passed at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, with the final sizable deal involving the Rams making a move for Broncos pass-rusher Von Miller.Although the Miami Dolphins did due diligence on Deshaun Watson and had conversations with the Houston Texans, they will not make a trade for the quarterback before Tuesday's NFL trade deadline, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who had contingencies that needed to be met for any deal, made the final decision to not move forward, according to the source.
The 2021 NFL trade deadline officially passed at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, with the final sizable deal involving the Rams making a move for Broncos pass-rusher Von Miller. The Baltimore Ravens traded rookie cornerback Shaun Wade to the New England Patriots for a couple of draft picks. The Ravens received a seventh-round pick in 2022 and a fifth-rounder in 2023. Wade, a fifth-round pick out of Ohio State, was not going to make the Ravens' 53-man roster after being passed on the depth chart by Chris Westry.
The problem here is that Beckham Jr. isn’t exactly being held hostage. (LeBron did an excellent impression of Dads Watching Football by confidently muttering things like “draw play right here,” and “good Cover-2” on the Manning-cast several weeks ago, but his ability to accurately assess the NFL landscape might end there.) Beckham remains a talented player who, all things considered, Cleveland would probably rather have on its roster than not, but it’s beyond obvious that his Browns tenure hasn’t gone as planned. Beckham has averaged 54.7 receiving yards per game as a Brown and caught 54.3 percent of his targets, both well short of the 92.8 yards per game and 62.7 percent of targets caught he averaged as a Giant. Since 2019, Mayfield has a 69.0 passer rating when targeting Beckham, the lowest figure of any NFL quarterback and receiver with more than 100 passing attempts in that span. Just this season, Mayfield has a 77.8 passer rating when targeting Beckham and a 98.9 passer rating targeting anyone else. Beckham is staying in Cleveland, but that seems more likely to be because the Browns have reportedly not gotten any offers worth seriously considering for him than because they’re desperate to hang on to him.

The Chiefs’ season has been a surprising disappointment so far. Still, at 4-4 and well within the AFC wild-card hunt, they decided to be buyers at the deadline. Kansas City traded a sixth-round pick to the Steelers for edge defender Melvin Ingram III on Tuesday, an attempt to improve a pass rush that ranks 32nd in sack rate, 16th in pressure rate, and 29th in expected points added (EPA) on defense so far this season. Despite their issues with turnovers, the Chiefs still rank sixth in offensive DVOA. Having a good offense while turning the ball over so frequently is hard, and it’s still easy to see Kansas City figuring things out with slightly better defensive play and more turnover luck later this year. Ingram, who didn’t cost much, probably represents the first part of that—slight defensive improvement. He’d been outplayed by Alex Highsmith in Pittsburgh but still had some solid moments earlier this season, including a sack and three quarterback hits in Week 2 against the Raiders and two quarterback hits in Week 4 against the Packers. The pass rush isn’t the biggest issue for the Chiefs’ defense, but Ingram, Frank Clark, Chris Jones, and Jarran Reed are a decent group for a team where “decent” would go a long way. The Chiefs weren’t quite done after trading for Ingram, either: They traded guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif to the Jets for tight end Dan Brown. (Source: www.theringer.com)
The Cardinals needed to replace their injured tight end, Maxx Williams, and Ertz is a viable solution. Ertz drops too many passes and gets hurt often, but he can still be a decent contributor, as evidenced in the Thursday night matchup against the Buccaneers. The Cardinals are the final remaining undefeated team, but it's nice that they still recognize that they have holes on their roster that they must address. I'd like to see them add a cornerback as well, but this is a great trade because they're not really surrendering anything. (Source: walterfootball.com)
