Wide receiver is the hot position on the day of the 2018 NFL Trade Deadline.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Tuesday that the Philadelphia Eagles traded a third-round draft pick to the Detroit Lions in exchange for wide receiver Golden Tate.

Earlier in the day, Schefter reported that the Houston Texans acquired wide receiver Demariyus Thomas from the Denver Broncos in exchange for a mid-round draft pick.

Last week, the Dallas Cowboys sent a first-round draft pick to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for wide receiver Amari Cooper.

The move should help head coach Jason Garrett and quarterback Dak Prescott improve the team’s offense.

Although, many fans were not thrilled with owner and general manager Jerry Jones for paying such a steep price in the deal.

At 3-4, the Cowboys occupy third place in the NFC East. The 4-4 Eagles currently reside in second place.
