NFL approves new, later trade deadline for 2024 season

The NFL is pushing back the trade deadline one week starting with the 2024 season.

Starting this year, the deadline will now be the Tuesday after Week 9 games have been completed, per the league’s official release.

Multiple teams had been pushing for this change, giving clubs more time to make key moves near the midway point of the regular season in preparation for either a playoff run or an early start on offseason strategy.
