There are so many trade rumors swirling around as we get closer and closer to the NFL trade deadline, but there is always that one deal that you just say "WOW! I did not see that one coming!" In order to stop you from having a heart attack, here are three under-the-radar players that could be traded at the deadline.

Tyrod Taylor is arguably the best back-up quarterback in the NFL. He's arguably better than half the players starting for other teams too. With Baker Mayfield clearly being both the present and the future in Cleveland, it would be a smart play for Browns GM John Dorsey to add an asset for a player sitting on the bench. Taylor would be a great fit for a potential playoff team like the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Broncos sit at 3-5 behind two of the top three teams in the AFC in the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers. With a playoff berth being nothing more than a pipe dream for GM John Elway, trading away Shane Ray, a Super Bowl winning linebacker, to a contender would be a sneaky good move for the GM. While all the hype is circling around Demaryius Thomas, trading Ray to his hometown team (he's from Kansas City, Missouri) could alter the path of both teams.

The Giants officially began their rebuild when they sent Damon "Snacks" Harrison to the Detroit Lions last week. Another key cog on their defense, who could really help a playoff team, is Janoris Jenkins. He could literally fit on any team looking to upgrade their secondary. A few teams that come to mind include the Bengals, Patriots, the aforementioned Chiefs, and the Steelers.
