Night net null The list of players who are most likely to be traded in 2019 before the Tuesday, 4 p.m. ET deadline used to be longer, as a couple of the no-brainers have already been dealt.MORE: Follow SN's live trade tracker for 2019 deadline updates Jalen Ramsey, who was rather public in his desire to be traded from the Jaguars, was moved to the Rams. Emmanuel Sanders, who had been mentioned in trade rumors for more than a year as the Broncos faded away from contention, was traded to the 49ers. The moves took a

couple intriguing trade targets off the market but left several big names on the trade block for teams to consider ahead of the trade deadline.The common denominator for the players who are most likely to be traded in 2019 is their respective teams' struggles. It's no coincidence that players from the Falcons, Dolphins, Broncos, Bengals, Redskins and Jets make up the majority of the list; those teams were a combined 5-35 going into Week 8. Night net teams seem to have more self-awareness than ever when it comes to buying and selling at the annual trade deadline, which is why there's been an uptick in Night net transactions in October over the last couple years. So in 2019, expect the aforementioned teams to sell, and expect some title contenders to buy.Here are the Night net players most likely to be on new teams come Week 9 this season.MORE: Potential trade targets for all 32 Night net teams at the 2019 deadline (Getty Images) 1. Vic Beasley, OLB/DE, FalconsThe Falcons did not expect to be a mess the season after they picked up the fifth-year option on Beasley's rookie contract. Now, with Atlanta having quickly slipped out of contention and with Beasley not doing much to stop the team's slide, the 27-year-old is on the trade block.A Beasley trade would cost the Falcons nothing in terms of a dead cap hit this year or next. And though the team is unlikely to sign him to another contract in the offseason, anyway, his being off the books would save Atlanta $12.8 million in space as they enter a tricky cap situation in 2020.Beasley's production has slipped this season, but in theory, he would be a welcome addition to the right contender. SN has mentioned the Texans as an ideal suitor in a potential trade with the Falcons.From SN's Vinnie Iyer: "The Texans moved edge-rusher Jadeveon Clowney before the season and also made deals for left tackle Laremy Tunsil and now Conley. They should consider taking a flyer on Beasley, who just three years ago had 15.5 sacks for the Falcons but has faded and will be a free agent in 2020. Romeo Crennel can put him in good positions as a complementary, situational pass rusher in their 3-4.2. Kenyan Drake, RB, Dolphins(UPDATE: Drake was traded to the Cardinals in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round draft pick that could become a fifth.)This one is simple: The Dolphins are bad, and they already have proven their willingness to sell. They have accumulated future assets in trades of Minkah Fitzpatrick, Tunsil, Kenny Stills and Kiko Alonso this year, and Drake is another attractive player to contenders.The 25-year-old running back is in the final year of his rookie contract. He would be a relatively cheap-but-impactful addition to a team in need of rushing support.3. DeVante Parker, WR, DolphinsThe 26-year-old is playing well in his fifth Night net season — just in time to make himself an attractive trade piece. The Dolphins this year signed Parker to a two-year contract extension, which isn't long enough to suggest the team is committed to the receiver as it goes through a full rebuild.Trading Parker before the deadline would give Miami $3.8 million in 2019 cap savings and a dead cap hit of just $1 million, leaving nothing on the books for 2020 and yielding compensation in the form of a valuable draft pick. SN's Vinnie Iyer believes a team like the Saints should be interested in a deal."Second-year Saints wideout Tre'Quan Smith has been hurt for most of the year, and Ted Ginn Jr. has proved only sporadic deep threat production," Iyer writes. "Parker has been looking great as a red zone threat for Miami, and he would be a nice No. 2 to play off Michael Thomas, well timed with the return of Drew Brees." (Getty Images) 4. A.J. Green, WR, BengalsGreen is not the player most likely to be traded before the deadline, as the winless Bengals have insisted they don't intend to move him, but he is the most notable name on the market in terms of players who realistically could (and should) be moved.Fans of pretty much any team that has had a wide receiver drop a pass in 2019 have brought up the idea of trading for Green, who is close to returning from the foot injury that has kept him out of the first half of the season. And they've done so with good reason. Green is in the final year of his contract with a team in need of a rebuild. Cincinnati would be wise to get something in return for a star player who is unlikely to re-sign, especially since Mohamed Sanu, a lesser receiver who is only a year younger than Green (31), yielded a second-round draft pick in a recent trade.According to SN's Vinnie Iyer, the team that should be most interested in Green is Buffalo."The Bills at 5-1 look like legitimate wild-card contenders, and although they like former CFL star Duke Williams opposite John Brown on the outside, Green would color them a lot more special at wideout," Iyer writes. "He is still ailing from his ankle injury, but he should be ready to contribute sometime soon in November."MORE: Packers, 49ers, Bills among best trade fits for A.J. Green5. Trent Williams, OT, RedskinsWashington for months claimed it was not willing to deal the 31-year-old whose relationship with the team has deteriorated beyond the point of return. Apparently something changed as the Night net trade deadline drew near.Night net Media on Monday reported the Redskins are now "open to dealing" Williams, who is signed through 2020. A trade of the seven-time Pro Bowler actually would cost Washington $80,000 in cap space and bring the team dead cap charges of $3.6 million and $1.9 million this year and next, respectively. But for the right price, Washington would be smart not to extend an already-nasty situation.They Browns, desperate for an upgrade at left tackle, have long been rumored as potential suitors for the Redkins in a Williams trade.

One: He is on a one-year contract that, if traded, would leave just a $2 million dead cap charge on Denver's books in 2019 while freeing up $9.8 million in cap space. Two: At age 30, Harris is an effective cover man at a position teams value, meaning he would yield solid compensation for a two-win team that needs to rebuild. The Broncos already admitted such a status when they dealt Sanders to the 49ers.SN's Vinnie Iyer has brought up three teams that should entertain the idea of trading for the Denver cornerback.The case for the Seahawks: "The team already added two key defensive pieces in Jadeveon Clowney and Quandre Diggs. One more to give the young secondary more reliable coverage help would be welcome as the Seahawks battle for the division title."The case for the Rams: "LA is clearly all-in on its 2019 season, and although they got Ramsey to upgrade from Marcus Peters, they did lose prized Wade Phillips cover man Aqib Talib to an injury. Harris would make sense to pair with Ramsey given his knowledge of Phillips' scheme."The case for the Eagles: "Ramsey and Peters are gone, but Harris is among non-division options who can be had at the right price. The Eagles aren't rebounding from 3-4 to win the playoffs if they need to consistently roll with their sorry secondary."7. Derek Wolfe, DE, BroncosThe Broncos don't have a ton to gain by parting with Wolfe, the 29-year-old defensive end they drafted in the second round in 2012. He is in the final year of his contract, and while a trade would give the Broncos an immediate $8 million in cap relief, it would give them a dead cap hit of $2.8 million for the rest of 2019.So it comes down to whether Denver wants to get something in return for a soon-to-be free agent (which it should), and whether another team is willing to trade for him (which it should be). SN's Vinnie Iyer can think of two teams that might be interested.The case for the Cowboys: "Dallas could use some versatility and depth with a little extra pass-rush punch for their defensive line rotation. Wolfe isn't an exact scheme fit, but he can bring good results under Rod Marinelli.The case for the Packers: "There's more buzz around the idea of the Packers getting A.J. Green for the wide receiver corps, but Davante Adams should be back soon, and they still have interesting depth at the position. Wolfe could be plugged in as a starter at 3-4 end and become a much-needed boost to the run defense."8. Tyler Eifert, TE, BengalsLike almost all of the players on this list, Eifert is on an expiring contract with a team unlikely to re-sign him in 2020. The Bengals might as well shop the 29-year-old who despite his share of injury concerns still offers skill and experience at tight end.Due in part to that injury history, Cincinnati would not get much in return for Eifert, but a contending team looking to add tight end depth for the winter months might be willing to part with a mid-round pick. Such an offer for a player rarely being utilized should be plenty for a team like the Bengals. (Getty Images) 9. Melvin Gordon, RB, ChargersBad news for Gordon: With productive running backs in Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson, the Chargers don't need the two-time Pro Bowler, and they definitely don't need to make him one of the Night net's highest-paid rushers. Worse news for Gordon: His iffy play on the heels of his holdout has diminished his value.Of course, for teams interested in Gordon's services, these developments are great news.At 2-5 and with Gordon doing little to help the cause, the Chargers at this point would be wise to shop a player who if traded would cost them nothing in terms of a dead cap hit. Gordon is in the final year of his contract, and given the context of his disastrous holdout, a team that trades for him might be able to re-sign him to a reasonable contract; a team like the Lions, for example."Kerryon Johnson has promise, but he hasn't been durable," SN's Vinnie Iyer writes. "Gordon is doing nothing effective for the Chargers and could fare better in Darrell Bevell's scheme playing off the downfield passing game with Matthew Stafford."10. Marcus Mariota, QB, TitansOther than depth behind new starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, the Titans have no reason to keep the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 Night net Draft. In the option year of his rookie contract, Mariota if traded would cost the Titans nothing in terms of a dead cap charge while saving them almost $21 million in cap space.The Titans are in a tricky spot as a contending-but-not-too-dangerous team, and their QB situation will be a question mark moving forward. What's not a question is Mariota's future in Tennessee, so the challenge for the Titans is finding a team that would be willing to give up draft compensation for a bust of a QB in the middle of the season. There might be only one such team."The Bears need an alternative to Mitchell Trubisky for both the short and long term," SN's Vinnie Iyer writes. "The Titans are clearly done with Mariota, and he can be had for limited return at the moment. Mariota has some Alex Smith-like qualities that could work in Matt Nagy's system."
