The 2018 NFL Trade Deadline has come and gone and for the first time in the league’s history, the deadline was actually exciting. The NBA and MLB trade deadlines should be holidays. You spend all day refreshing your phone waiting to see which superstars are going to change teams and change the playoff races.
Well, that’s never been the case in the NFL until recently now that teams are realizing that they can plug in quality players instead of hoping to draft quality players a year later. Teams want to win now. It’s crazy it’s taken teams so long to understand that winning now is better than maybe winning later. Wild.
Anyway, here are the 4 biggest winners and 4 biggest losers of the 2018 NFL Trade Deadline:
1. MY Los Angeles Rams
Look, the New York Giants have done nothing but hurt me ever since Odell and the boys wore timbs on a boat before a playoff game. It’s been constant heartbreak. I’ve slowly been transitioning into loving the Rams and today, I am ready to announce that I am on the bandwagon.
The Rams seem to not have the same salary cap as the rest of the league and they have unlimited draft picks to trade for stars. Whether it’s Brandin Cooks or Todd Gurley, or Ndamukong Suh or Aaron Donald or Aqib Talib or Marcus Peters, the Rams have all the money and draft picks they need for this super team.
OF COURSE, they traded for former first-round pick, Dante Fowler. The Rams are going to end up with Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown by the end of the week somehow.
