2024 NFL trade rumors: Geno Smith, Stefon Diggs among seven surprise big names who could be dealt


With 2024 NFL free agency also comes the offseason trade market. Sometimes blockbuster deals are forecast weeks or months in advance, much like the Chicago Bears with quarterback Justin Fields, who’s widely expected to be shopped as the team considers resetting the position atop April’s draft. Other times, big-name moves sent genuine shockwaves around the league.

With that in mind, here are seven notable veterans who probably won’t — or maybe shouldn’t — be dealt but could be floated in trade talks anyway:

The Seattle Seahawks have already guaranteed $12.7 million (or 40%) of Smith’s base salary for 2024, but that hardly means he’s locked into place. The team is starting fresh with a new coach, sniffed around top QB draft prospects a year ago and can still save an immediate $13.8 million by dealing him prior to June 1. Smith has been just gutsy and dynamic enough to warrant another ride as the starter, but if another club is desperate for veteran help, it’s hard to envision the Seahawks denying the call.
