The NFL trade deadline is Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET and the outcome of Week 8 games may play a role in which players are moved and which players stay. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer cited one general manager that said, "there's going to be eight desperate teams tonight."

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport on Sunday reported that wide receiver DeSean Jackson has requested a trade from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In the same report, Rapoport referenced the Philadelphia Eagles, Jackson's former team, as a team that could be interested in adding a receiver.

Jackson is enjoying a solid season. He has 526 receiving yards and three touchdowns in six games.

The 31-year-old is earning $11 million in 2018 but the $10 million he is owed next season is not guaranteed.

With a 3-3 record, the Bucs are still in the playoff hunt. They are on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

There have been reports that the Houston Texans have received offers for defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, though he is not expected to be dealt. The 25-year-old is in the last year of his rookie deal with a salary of $12.3 million.

Glazer referenced several players that could be dealt. They include Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Pierre Garcon, Green Bay Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins and Oakland Raiders defensive end Bruce Irvin.

The New England Patriots, after adding troubled wide receiver Josh Gordon, are willing to surrender high draft picks for another receiver, according to Glazer. The Patriots traded wide receiver Brandin Cooks to the Los Angeles Rams in April.

The Eagles, who held off the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, are considered among the top buyers ahead of Tuesday. The Cleveland Browns could also make a deal because of their ample salary-cap space.
