Post NFL pushes back trade deadline
The NFL has pushed the trading deadline back to the Tuesday after the eighth week of the season.

It's a much-needed change. Previously, the deadline was the Tuesday following Week 6, not giving teams enough time to decide if they're buyers or sellers. The extra two weeks has the potential to generate more trades. Also, the league announced that there will be a new "injured reserve exception" going forward. One player per team will be allowed to come off IR at some point later in the season.

These are the kind of rule changes I can get behind! I like both of them.
