Who won the trade deadline: Texans or Eagles? – (NOLA.COM) Saints News
The Houston Texans and Philadelphia Eagles made big trade deadline deals, improving their teams and setting off discussions on who got the better end of their respective deals. The Texans got a veteran receiver in Demaryius Thomas, who will be a great compliment to DeAndre Hopkins. Golden Tate was sent to the Eagles for a third-round pick and will be perfect for running short to intermediate routes. Who was the bigger winner?


With Will Fuller V out for the season with a torn ACL, the Texans needed to make a big move in order to keep their season alive. They did more than that getting four-time Pro Bowler Demaryius Thomas. Have two All-Pro wide receivers give quarterback Deshaun Watson added security in the passing game. Thomas specifically gives him a veteran who knows how to open and make tough catches in tight spots. Tate was a good pick up for the Eagles, but getting the former Broncos receiver is a game changer for Houston.

The Philadelphia Eagles are a little behind schedule in their title defense, but Golden Tate is going to change all of that. The team’s run-pass option attack is struggling, but Tate’s hands and quick reflexes will be a nightmare for opposing defenses to deal with. The former Notre Dame man has been one of the most productive wide receivers finishing with 90 or more catches the last four seasons. He makes Philadelphia the team to beat.
