    There are only two weeks left until the 2022 NFL season, which means it’s too soon for teams to press the panic button. It’s too early for supplemental hopefuls to become aggressive in the commercial market, and too early for struggling teams to break up rosters.

    However, some early trades will make a lot of sense. Injuries created holes in many of the rolls, and after two games some weaknesses are clearly visible and not deviations.

    We’ll be examining six trading ideas that can logically be implemented now – as well as right now before the start of the third week.

    Since we focus on trades early in the season, we’re primarily looking at backups and role players who can be considered consumers. We will examine why each can be dealt with and where best to fill the void.

    Factors such as roster composition, past performance, expected roles, contract status, and cover space were all considered. Players are listed in alphabetical order.

Cline Ferrell for Cleveland Browns

    Get Browns: Edge Clean Ferrell

    Get Raiders: 2023 Sixth Round Pick

    The Las Vegas Raiders sit at 0-2 after the second half collapsed on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. However, 2019’s fourth trade overall with Clelin Ferrell’s pick is not about the team’s record.

    Ferrell does not play a prominent role in Patrick Graham’s defense. Within two weeks, the Clemson product was up and running 27 percent Of the defensive shots, he scored one tackle and one quarterback pressure.

    Depending on his role and production, Ferrell won’t get much return. However, invaders can get it Something Again for the player who is likely to leave in Free Agency 2023 anyway. Meanwhile, the Cleveland Browns might be tempted to take a ride on Ferrell.

    Brown’s side crashed on Sunday, squandering their 13-point lead with less than two minutes left – and losing by missing an extra point. Broken coverage helped the New York Jets engineer a comeback against Cleveland, but Brown’s lack of passing dash allowed Joe Flacco time to capitalize.

    Brown’s passing rush was effective most Sundays but less so after Jadevion Clooney was knocked out in the third quarter with an ankle injury. according to Chris Easterling and Nate Ulrich subordinate Akron Beacon MagazineClowney left in his walking shoes after the game – never a good sign.

    brown they have announce Clooney will miss the third week.

    If he misses it too long, Cleveland will struggle to find a complement to superstar Miles Jarrett. Ferrell, who had 4.5 sacks as a starter, could be a great project to include in the rotation.

Dernest Johnson to the Los Angeles Rams

    Get rams: RB Dernest Johnson

    Get brown: S Terrell Burgess

    Brown was supposed to tackle the Jets on Sunday, and they could have done so if Nick Chap had stopped in the finish zone in Cleveland’s last scoring campaign. Had he not danced in the end zone, Brown would have had a 1 and a goal under two minutes and the Jets out of timeouts. A couple of knees and the game was over.

    This was the only egregious mistake by Brown’s home match that was dominant for the first two weeks. Cleveland scored 401 rushing yards at 5.3 yards per carry.

    Despite this, Brown has yet to use third-back D’Ernest Johnson, who plays on a 1 year $1.2 million Deal. Johnson, who collected 534 rushing yards on 5.3 yards per carry last season, is a quality trading chip.

    The Los Angeles Rams could use a tough runner like Johnson, because they get a little bit of their ground game, specifically Cam Akers. Los Angeles averaged just 2.7 yards per carry, while Akers averaged 2.4. In Los Angeles, Johnson could be a solid complement to Daryl Henderson Jr., who averaged 4.1 more respectable yards per lunge.

    Instead of trading venture capital, rams could flip the safety of reserve Terrell Burgess, who has not yet played defensive snap this chapter. The 2020 third-round pick won’t fix the connection issues at the Cleveland defense’s end, but it could give defensive coordinator Joe Woods another option at the back end.

Sidney Jones IV to Baltimore Ravens

    Crows get: CB Sydney Jones IV

    Get Seahawks: 2023 Fifth round selection

    We promise we don’t just check out teams that collapsed in Week 2. Have you seen the Baltimore Ravens’ defensive collapse? Baltimore led 35-14 over the Miami Dolphins before the fourth quarter and lost.

    Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa finished with a 469 pass, six touchdowns and two interceptions.

    While the Ravens have cornerbacks Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters after losing time in 2021 – Peters missed the entire season due to an ACL rupture – they lost Kyle Fuller of the year to an ACL rupture. As Sunday’s result shows, the depth of the corner in Baltimore remains in question.

    It will be up to the Ravens to trade a corner of the starting caliber, and Sidney Jones IV appears as the leading candidate. The Seattle Seahawks may be 1-1, but they didn’t look like a contender in Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

    Jones hasn’t seen long to play this season – he’s played 12 Defensive shots in the first week – but started 11 start for Seattle in 2021. Only opponent passers-by rating allowed 84.3 Covering last season.

    Jones plays on One year $3.6 million A bargain, and if the Seahawks don’t compete, a transfer of that salary would make sense. crows who have $4.7 million In the remaining cover space, you can take it while enhancing its depth in the secondary.

Mason Rudolph to the San Francisco 49ers

    49ers get: QB Mason Rudolph

    Get the Steelers: 2023 Fifth round selection

    While the 49ers embarrassed the Seahawks in Week 2, the game wasn’t a win-win from start to finish. San Francisco lost second-year quarterback Trey Lance to an ankle injury at the end of the season.

    Lance suffered a broken ankle that required surgery.

    “I’m really happy with the win, but it’s going to get a little sad once you get into the locker room,” head coach Kyle Shanahan Reporters.

    The 49ers have key-caliber quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo as they restructured his contract and kept him for the 2022 season. However, San Francisco could use a seasoned backup, as rookie Brock Purdy is the only other player on the roster.

    Enter the Pittsburgh Steelers in reserve for Mason Rudolph, who has 10 starts and a 5-4-1 record. Rudolf Garoppolo wouldn’t be sent off from the starting role, but he secured a more quarterback than Purdy.

    The question is whether the Steelers will make Rudolph available. He’s a valuable backup and is well versed in second year offense coordinator Matt Canada. However, Rudolph is also the third player behind starter Mitch Trubesky and first-round picker Kenny Beckett.

    Rudolph plays on a 1 year, 6 million dollarsn bargain, so Steelers can get big savings by transferring a player who doesn’t use it. 49ers who have 2.5 million dollars In the cap space, you will have to free up space to get the deal done. However, they could use insurance more than the Steelers could turn the offense over to Pickett this season anyway.

Darius Slayton to Indianapolis Colts

    Get the dowries: WR Darius Slayton

    Giants get: 2023 seventh round selection, 2024 sixth round selection

    The Indianapolis Colts were widely expected to race in 2022, thanks in large part to the acquisition of quarterback Matt Ryan. However, Ryan has been burdened with one of the most disappointing receiving teams in the NFL, and Andy is on his way to a 0-1-1 start.

    Sunday’s 24-0 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars was an absolute embarrassment. Ryan was 16 of 30 for 195 yards and three interceptions. Ashton Doolin and running back Naheim Haynes were the only Colts players to reach the top 30 yards.

    While #1 receiver Michael Bateman Jr. (a quartet) did not play against Jacksonville, the lack of receiver depth is stark. Despite their rough start, the Colts see themselves as a potential playoff team.

    Coach Frank Rich Reporters. “We have the players and coaches to do that.”

    If Indy wants to turn his season around, he needs to get some help from Ryan ASAP. Trading the New York Giants broadly on Darius Slayton in depth can help tremendously.

    Slayton lost his luck in New York and just played four Attacking shots in 2022. During the 2019 and 2020 seasons, Slayton produced 1,491 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. The talent is there.

    The giants are unlikely to get a great return for Slayton because they have little commercial leverage – they don’t use it and they can’t pretend they intend to. However, moving it will result in a post clarification $900,000 of books.

    Colts should take the opportunity to add a proven pass catcher to their ranks.

Michael Scofield to the Cincinnati Bengals

    Get Bengals: J Michael Scofield

    Get bears: 2023 Sixth Round Pick

    The Chicago Bears received a pilot in the first round of the 2021 Championship to disappointment Alex Leatherwood after the 53-player roster was shortened. However, the bears Developed Leatherwood is on the non-football/illness list last week, which means he will miss at least four games.

    With Leatherwood out for at least three more games, the Bears re-sign Michael Schofield to the active list. Schofield, who has been fired and re-signed to the coaching staff, is likely to be an in-depth short-term solution for Chicago.

    The Bears should seriously consider introducing Schofield to the Cincinnati Bengals. The AFC title holders are standing on the 0-2 hole to start the season, and their offensive streak remains a huge question mark.

    The signings of Lyle Collins, Alex Capa and Ted Karas should have fixed last year’s biggest weakness. This did not happen. Midfielder Joe Burrow, the league’s highest-profile 13 times, was sacked despite only being pressured 18.2 percent of his drops.

    Rookie goalkeeper Cordell Foulson was responsible for two kisses and one penalty kick, according to Focus on professional football.

    Schofield, who spent last season with the Los Angeles Chargers, may not be a top player, but he has experience playing both guard and tackle. He started 12 matches in 2021 and was responsible for only three penalties and allowed two sacks, he said PFF.

    The addition of Schofield will give Cincinnati another option as she continues to change her offensive line and try to find a group that can protect Burrow. Meanwhile, Chicago could get something in return for a player who might walk out once Weatherwood is ready to return.
