Cowboys trade for Raiders WR Amari Cooper
Date: Oct. 22
The Raiders will receive a first-round draft pick in exchange, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Oakland will now have three first-round picks in 2019 after also getting the Bears’ selection in last month’s Khalil Mack trade. Cooper, 24, has just 22 catches for 280 yards and one touchdown in his first six games this season.

Jaguars trade for Browns RB Carlos Hyde
Date: Oct. 19
Jacksonville, in need of rushing help because Leonard Fournette is out indefinitely with a hamstring injury, traded a fifth-round draft pick to Cleveland for Hyde. Hyde had rushed for 382 yards and five touchdowns in his first season in Cleveland. He just barely missed rushing for 1,000 yards in each of the past two seasons with the 49ers.

Panthers trade for Bills OT Marshall Newhouse
Date: Sept. 25
Carolina continued its pipeline with Buffalo, trading for backup tackle Newhouse to help with depth on an injury-plagued line. The Bills will receive a conditional late 2021 draft pick. Buffalo used Newhouse in its first three games as a sixth offensive lineman in running situations. He played 11 offensive snaps and was called for two penalties, a holding and a false start.
Patriots trade for Browns WR Josh Gordon
Date: Sept. 17
The Browns will get a 2019 fifth-round pick, while the Pats will get a 2019 seventh-round pick from the Browns if Gordon is not active for 10 games. The Patriots will pay Gordon, who is a restricted free agent in 2019, the remaining $697,058 on his 2018 contract.

Bears trade for Raiders pass-rusher Khalil Mack
Date: Sept. 1
Chicago reached a record-setting six-year, $141 million extension with Mack after acquiring him from Oakland. Mack is now the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history. The Bears gave up first-round picks in 2019 and 2020, a third-round pick in 2020 and a sixth-round pick in 2019 to acquire him. In return, the Bears also received a second-round pick in 2020 and a conditional fifth-round pick in 2020.

Raiders trade for Bills QB AJ McCarron
Date: Sept. 1
Buffalo will receive a 2019 fifth-round draft pick. The Raiders will owe McCarron his fully guaranteed, $900,000 base salary this season. In March, the Bills signed the 27-year-old McCarron to a two-year, $10 million contract, which included a $4 million signing bonus, after trading starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Browns.

Panthers trade for Lions OL Corey Robinson
Date: Sept. 1
With starting left tackle Matt Kalil expected to be out with a knee injury, Carolina traded an undisclosed draft pick to Detroit for Robinson. Robinson was a seventh-round pick for the Lions out of South Carolina in 2015, playing in 23 games and starting in eight. His career has been hampered by foot injuries — including eight missed games last season.
49ers trade for Browns OL Shon Coleman
Date: Aug. 31
San Francisco acquired Coleman from Cleveland for a 2019 seventh-round draft pick. The Niners were seeking more depth on the offensive line, and Coleman, a third-round pick by the Browns in 2016, started 16 games at right tackle last season.
Saints trade for Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater
Date: Aug. 29
New York dealt Bridgewater and a 2019 sixth-round pick to New Orleans for a 2019 third-round pick. Bridgewater will cost the Saints at least $5 million for one year. He could earn up to $9 million more in incentives based on playing time, yards and touchdowns. Bridgewater played in 29 games for the Vikings in 2014 and 2015 but missed all of 2016 after dislocating his left knee and tearing multiple ligaments on Aug. 30, 2016. He missed most of the 2017 season while still with the Vikings.

Seahawks trade for Packers QB Brett Hundley
Date: Aug. 29
Green Bay traded Hundley to Seattle for a 2019 draft pick before the season, giving the job behind Aaron Rodgers to DeShone Kizer, whom the Packers acquired from the Browns in March in exchange for cornerback Damarious Randall. Hundley went 3-6 in nine starts last season after Rodgers broke his collarbone.
Titans trade for Ravens LB Kamalei Correa
Date: Aug. 28
Baltimore will receive a 2019 sixth-round pick from Tennessee. Correa is a former second-round pick (No. 42 overall) by the Ravens. The third-year linebacker played in 16 games last season, three of which he started. Correa got off to a good start for Baltimore this season. He posted three sacks, six tackles, and two pass breakups in the preseason opener against the Bears.
Packers trade for Colts LB Antonio Morrison
Date: Aug. 26
Green Bay acquired Morrison from Indianapolis in exchange for cornerback Lenzy Pipkins. Morrison, a fourth-round pick from Florida in 2016, started all 15 games he played in last season and made four starts as a rookie. Pipkins made the Packers’ 53-man roster last season as an undrafted free agent. He appeared in 12 games, mostly on special teams, making one start at cornerback and playing a total of 112 defensive snaps.
Lions trade for 49ers LB Eli Harold
Date: Aug. 23
San Francisco will receive a conditional seventh-round pick in 2020 in return. Harold heads to Detroit after three mostly disappointing seasons in San Francisco. A 2015 third-round pick out of Virginia, Harold has played in all 48 games the past three seasons, including 23 as a starter over the past two. Initially expected to provide edge rush help, Harold did not make much of an impact there, with five sacks in three years.
