Redskins Listening At NFL Trade Deadline

Posted Oct 31, 2012

Due to the approach of hurricane Sandy, the league offices were closed on Monday and Tuesday, pushing the deadline back to 4 p.m. on Thursday.

Under the new collective bargaining agreement, the NFL trade deadline is 4 p.m. on the Tuesday following the Week 8 games, two weeks after the previous Week 6 deadline.

Due to the approach of hurricane Sandy, the league offices were closed on Monday and Tuesday, pushing the deadline back to 4 p.m. on Thursday.

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan discussed the possibility of a deadline deal, noting that the prudent approach was to listen to all offers.

"You're looking at different opportunities," he said.  "Nothing usually happens along those lines, but there's always a possibility.  We always check out our options and see what others teams' interest is in our players, or our interest in somebody else's players. 

"Usually that's what happens at this time of year, but in my experience it doesn't happen very often."

Deadline trades are an NFL rarity, with very few players--especially notable names--swapping jerseys midseason.

Historically, the Redskins have been quiet at the deadline, with very few trades transpiring at all during the season.

The most notable in-season Redskins trade was shipping quarterback Jay Schroeder to Los Angeles for Rams tackle Jim Lachey on Sept. 5, 1988, the date of the Redskins' season opener against the Giants.

Schroeder was the loser of a training camp battle with incumbent starter and Super Bowl MVP Doug Williams. He would play another seven seasons in the NFL, five with the Raiders, but had his best years in Washington.

Lachey played eight seasons in the Nation's Capital, becoming one of the 70 Greatest Redskins, a three-time Pro Bowler, three-time All-Pro selection, and Super Bowl Champion with the 1991 Redskins.

After trading Schroeder, a Williams appendectomy on Sept. 21, 1988, forced unheralded backup quarterback Mark Rypien into the starting lineup.

Rypien's success ultimately relegated Williams to the bench and paved the way to another Redskins Super Bowl victory in 1991.
