NFL World Reacts To Historic Trade Deadline Day

NFL football

The NFL trade deadline has now officially passed.

But not before teams around the league made more deals than ever before.

Ten different trades were executed before 4 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday, making it the busiest trade deadline day in NFL history, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

"There were a record 10 trades made today, the most ever made on any NFL trade deadline day," Schefter tweeted

The 10 trades included a star pass-rusher in Bradley Chubb traded for a first-round pick, tight end T.J. Hockenson sent to a division rival and a surprise team landing former Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool.

Plus, that number doesn't even include several big deals made in the days leading up to the deadline, which saw the likes of Christian McCaffrey, Robert Quinn and Roquan Smith trade teams.

And yet, as wild as Tuesday was, some fans were left wanting more. 

The Packers didn't make a trade to bolster Aaron Rodgers' offense, for instance, and a few players like Cam Akers, Brandin Cooks and Kareem Hunt, who had been rumored to be on the move, stayed with their original teams.

Even if your team didn't make the moves you wanted or a player on your fantasy football squad didn't get traded into a better situation, NFL fans had to be entertained by all the action in the past few days.

Now, the next couple months will determine the winners and losers of the deadline.
