The NFL deadline is fast approaching. Teams only have until next Tuesday to wheel and deal players to their own or other franchises in order to try and boost their chances of reaching the Super Bowl.
There are several teams that need to improve in certain areas on and off the field in terms of cap space for next year. There are players out there who could be traded away to help them with their personal situations, and players who could be pushed away for the sake of the team.
Which players could be traded before the November 3 deadline next week? Here are three possible players who could feature for new teams soon.

The Chicago Bears running back is one of the best all-purpose backs in the NFL, which is a big appeal for many teams in the league, so if he was to hit the trade block, many franchises would be interested.
He could be on the trade block soon as his contract expires at the end of the season. His base salary is only $7.05 million. However, because his contract is expiring soon, he is due a big payday, one which the Bears might not provide due to his age at the end of the season of 30.
Possible destinations: Dallas Cowboys or Denver Broncos
The wide receiver moved to the Miami Dolphins this past offseason but hasn't been able to make an impact since joining the AFC East side.
With how well other Dolphins' receivers are performing ahead of him, it is unlikely he will be in Miami for much longer. Although he isn't a top receiver anymore like he was back in his Green Bay Packers days, he still could provide some use to a receiver needy team.
Possible destination: Kansas City Chiefs
The tight end has really been a no-show for the San Francisco 49ers this season through no fault of his own. Set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2016, the team may look to trade him away to see some return for him before another team snaps him up for nothing.
He just hasn't been the player they expected him to be this season, as he has only caught 12 passes for 170 yards and zero touchdowns, but the passing game has been nearly nonexistent in San Francisco.
He has shown he is a good tight end in the right environment, and with a base salary of $4.35 million too, he is a reasonable and affordable target for some teams.
Possible destination: Denver Broncos
