The NFL’s trade deadline will be moved to the Tuesday following Week 9 of the regular season in the upcoming 2024 season, after receiving approval at the annual meetings. Andrew Barry, general manager of the Cleveland Browns, made this proposal to give teams more flexibility as they enter the second half of the season and maintain competitive integrity. However, it was not an unanimous decision, with only three-quarters approval needed for it to pass.

Berry argued that moving the trade deadline past Week 10 would allow teams to remain competitive and have additional flexibility in their decision-making process. He pointed out that since switching to an 18-week regular season, there were no adjustments made to the trade deadline. Over the past decade, teams were eliminated from postseason contention as early as Week 11 (in both 2014 and 2016). By moving the deadline past this point in time, teams can continue to compete and have more time before making roster changes.

In recent years, the NFL has set its trade deadline for a Tuesday after Week 8. This upcoming season will be different as teams will have until November 5th at 4:00 PM ET to complete all trades before starting the second half of the regular season.
