Big names stay put as NFL's trade deadline passes
The NFL's trade deadline was, once again, much ado about nothing.
After rumors surrounding a number of star players had surfaced in recent days and weeks, Tuesday's 4 p.m. cutoff came and went without any blockbuster deals.
Teams will not be able to complete trades between now and the first day of the new league year in March. Any players released during the remainder of this season are now subject to waivers before having an opportunity to become a free agent.
