Le Veon Bell was not traded. Neither were Patrick Peterson or DeSean Jackson. The New York Giants retained Odell Beckham Jr., Eli Manning, Landon Collins, Janoris Jenkins and Olivier Vernon. The Jacksonville Jaguars did not trade for a quarterback to replace the besieged Blake Bortles.

It may have spoken of the NFL's higher expectations regarding the close of trading, but it was a small disappointment that the biggest prospective deals were not made and the most prominent stars were not moving at 4pm. Deadline Tuesday.

Had it not been intriguing for the Jaguars to add Manning to replace Bortles in quarterback, end Manning's misery with the 1-7 Giants this season and rejoin him with Tom Coughlin, the front office manager in Jacksonville, the Manning two Super Bowl trained triumphs?

Would not it have been interesting to see what Beckham, who made the Giants the highest-paid broadcaster in the NFL, just turned around and refused to say in a television interview if he was happy in New York, could have been somewhere else?

What could Jackson, the fast recipient for the Buccaneers, and Peterson, the outstanding cornerback for the Cardinals, fight against teams if their reported trade inquiries were granted?

What if Bell was absent from the Steelers all season while refusing to sign his franchise player deal to increase the chances of the Philadelphia Eagles to repeat as a Super Bowl champion?

Some of his comrades got better, while some players turned in this season. All in all, it was a rather eventful and compelling trade-deadline day that soon returned to the Saints after the recently completed trades of Carlos Hyde to the Jaguars, the broad receiver Amari Cooper to the Cowboys, and the Giants Cornerback Eli Apple , defensive tackle Damon Harrison comes to the Lions.

Below is a brief analysis of each completed transaction and the letter-level teams involved:
