NFL trade deadline extended to after Week 9

The NFL trade deadline will be pushed back to the Tuesday after Week 9 starting in the 2024 season. This rule change was approved during the NFL’s annual meetings, with a proposal from Cleveland Browns general manager Andrew Berry garnering support from the Detroit Lions, New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles, and Washington Commanders.

The original proposal was for the trade deadline to be moved back two weeks after Week 10, but it was not approved. Instead, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ proposal to push the deadline back only one week received the necessary three-fourths approval to pass. Berry’s rationale for this move was to give teams greater flexibility as they approached the second half of the regular season. This change was seen as a way to maintain competitive integrity and provide teams with more time before considering roster changes.

Berry also pointed out that the trade deadline had not been adjusted when the NFL transitioned to an 18-week regular season schedule. The new deadline after Week 9 is seen as a compromise that allows for added flexibility while ensuring teams remain competitive heading into the latter part of the season.

Since 2012, the NFL trade deadline has fallen on the Tuesday after Week 8, but starting this season, teams will have until 4 p.m. ET on November 5 to finalize any deals before
