The NFL Trade Deadline is steadfast approaching, and on Tuesday, there was plenty of action. There were two notable SEC players who were involved in trades, as they’ll be playing for new teams in the second half of the season.

The first to move was former Florida Gators pass rusher Dante Fowler Jr. Fowler, who’d played for the Jacksonville Jaguars for the last few seasons, is now going to play for the lone unbeaten team in the NFL. That of course is the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams sent some draft picks to Jacksonville, a 2019 third rounder and a 2020 fifth rounder, to acquire Fowler, who’ll no doubt help an already ridiculous defense.

The other player to change addresses was former Alabama Crimson Tide defensive back HaHa Clinton-Dix. HHCD, who’d starred on the Green Bay Packers since 2014, is now going to play for Washington. He’ll join several other former ‘Bama stars, including Jonathan Allen, Da’Ron Payne, Ryan Anderson and Shaun Dion Hamilton. Washington acquired Clinton-Dix after sending a 4th round pick to Green Bay.
