NFL 2019 season is just 10 days away and most of the teams will make big changes in their roster. Preseason games were a trial run to check whether the veteran players with a big contract are worthy of their huge salaries or not. There are high chances that most of the NFL teams will make new trade deals before the Week 1 of NFL regular season. Here are the rumored deals for Jadeveon Clowney, Trent Williams, AJ Green and LeSean McCoy.
Jadeveon Clowney has not signed the franchise tag at $15.97 million with the Houston Texans and it waiting for a long term deal. The 26 years old Pro-Bowler could become the highest-paid defender if the Texans agree for a deal. But there is no way Houston is willing to spend so much of their cap space as they consider their quarterback Deshaun Watson as a bigger priority.
I suspect both the Trent Williams and Jadaveon Clowney situations are going to get wrapped up pretty quickly.
Both have multiple suitors.

Since Watson will be paid more than $35 million from next year, the Texans can’t afford Clowney at $20 million per year. The best Clowney can get is new deals with Miami Dolphins or Green Bay Packers in the next few days.
There are many reports which indicate that New England Patriots made an offer for Trent Williams to the Washington Redskins. Although the offer was not converted into a deal due to trade terms, it could happen in the near future. Williams is not happy with the Redskins on how they handled his health and also want a raise from the $10.85 million base salary. Maybe this time the Patriots comes up with a better offer and Williams is finally traded.
The Patriots are not – and have not been – in the business of trading for Redskins OT Trent Williams. They did not offer a first round pick for him. He's not on their radar.

AJ Green from Cincinnati Bengals could be on the move soon and traded within the first week of NFL 2019 season. The 31-year-old wide receiver is suffering through a lot of injuries and might go off cheap due to his age too. Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers from NFC West block might be interested in the veteran wide receiver.
Forgot to mention AJ Green was playing ping pong today in the #Bengals locker room. Reporters can't take pictures inside, but he was all smiles on the scooter in a boot playing a friendly game of table tennis. No update on when he'll be back on the field.

LeSean McCoy could soon be traded out by the Buffalo Bills as they have traded a lot of new players. The Bills signed Frank Gore who did an amazing job in the NFL preseason, along with young running back Devin Singletary who has also impressed everyone. McCoy is supposed to earn $9.05 million and the Bills would be smart to trade him out before the regular season begins.
Finally something non-injury related to tweet about: LeSean McCoy has looked pretty darn great tonight. Been saying all along (and a lot in the Digest) I don't think he's washed yet, last year's O-line was just that terrible
