With the NFL Trade Deadline being tomorrow on Halloween, will the Arizona Cardinals trick or treat their fans to some moves or stay put?

Being 1-7 on the season, the chances of a Pro Bowl-type player arriving in the valley is dim as the Cardinals are in a rebuild.

Additionally, if they keep losing or “tanking,” Arizona could improve their odds at receiving the 1st overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

A trade involving quarterback Kyler Murray or wide receiver Marquise Brown in search of a haul are both not part of the Cards’ plan.

As reported by The Athletic NFL insider Diana Russini, Murray will not be traded before the deadline.

Furthermore, Russini stated that Brown has garnered interest from other NFL franchises, but Arizona does not plan on dealing him either.

“The Arizona Cardinals have received calls on wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, but the team isn’t looking to move him,” Russini said.

Interestingly, a name with a mass amount of speculation surrounding it is Cards’ Pro Bowl safety Budda Baker.

Already, fans of teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Minnesota Vikings and more are making mock trades online.

However, Baker has just came back from the injured reserve and is arguably Arizona’s most important defensive player.

Unless there is a jaw-dropping offer that Cardinals general manager Monti Ossenfort can’t refuse, expect Baker to remain in Glendale.

Also, running back James Conner and tight end Zach Ertz are on the IR and will receive minimal to no interest with both out multiple weeks.

Is there a possibility that a blockbuster trade happens out of nowhere?

Not likely, but maybe.

But, expect one or maybe a few minor moves before the deadline tomorrow at 1 p.m.
