Will Redskins Deal At Trade Deadline?

Posted Oct 29, 2013

The 4 p.m. NFL trade deadline looms large today and the Redskins have needs and surpluses to deal from. Can they make a deal happen or will they stand pat?

The NFL trade deadline stands at 4 p.m. this afternoon, and the Redskins have been the subject of rumors and reports over the last week leading up to the deadline.

Will the Redskins make a switch, unload or reload talent on the roster? Historically speaking, it doesn't seem likely.

Under head coach Mike Shanahan and general manager Bruce Allen, the Redskins have made a number of trades, both small and large. But none have ever occurred in season.

Here is a review of the team's non-draft day trade moves under Shanahan/Allen:

  • Trading for defensive end Adam Carriker
  • Trading for quarterback John Beck
  • Trading for offensive tackle Jammal Brown
  • Trading away tight end Dennis Morris
  • Trading away cornerback Justin Tryon
  • Trading for quarterback Donovan McNabb
  • Trading defensive end Jeremy Jarmon for wide receiver Jabbar Gaffney
  • Trading away defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth
  • Trading away quarterback Donovan McNabb for pick to select Alfred Morris
  • Trading defensive end Vonnie Holliday for running back Tim Hightower
  • Trading picks for the rights to draft quarterback Robert Griffin III
  • Trading away cornerback Kevin Barnes.

All of these moves played a role in the roster composition of this team, with Carriker, Morris and Griffin III remaining in the organization.

However, none of these moves were made during the season.

The last record of an in-season trade by the Washington Redskins was making the move for defensive lineman Eric Williams from the Detroit Lions in exchange for running back James Wilder and a fourth-round draft pick.

That move was made on Sept. 12, 1990, following Week 1 of the regular season. That trade was commenced nearly two years before rookie cornerback David Amerson was born and more than a year before the team relocated the team's headquarters to Ashburn from Herndon, Va.

While history is a poor predictor of future events, anything could happen today. Stay tuned to for all the latest.
