NFL Trade Deadline Postponed Due to Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy is not only wreaking havoc over the seas and the eastern United States but also on the National Football League trading schedule. The NFL has opted to postpone its trade deadline two days to Thursday due to the weather and wrath of Hurricane Sandy.

On Monday, each of the 32 NFL teams were told that the NFL offices would be closed through Tuesday as a result of the storm. The trade deadline has been extended to 4 p.m. ET on Thursday.

This is not the first time an NFL trade deadline has been altered this year. In fact, the recent lockout and negotiations the players' union affected the deadline which was switched to follow the games of Week 8.

In general we see very few trades by the teams as the deadline approaches and on the actual date. With any luck, the NFL hopes that the two-week delay may provoke teams to work out additional trade deals.
