Saints News, 10/29/13: NFL Trade Deadline Passes With Only One Player Changing Teams

New, comments

The deadline was 4:00 PM ET and it appears only one last-day deal was made. The Eagles traded DT Isaac Sopoaga and a sixth round pick to the Patriots in exchange for a fifth round pick. Our Saints made no last-minute deals and why would they? At 6-1 and relatively healthy so far this season compared to most other teams, if it ain't broke don't fix it.
