Trade deadline pushed back over US storm

NEW YORK -- The NFL on Tuesday said it had pushed its trade deadline back 48 hours to Thursday because of the disruption caused by Hurricane Sandy.

The deadline for teams to agree on player swaps had been set for Tuesday, but the league decided to allow more time in part because several teams suspended operations as the deadly hurricane approached the U.S. East Coast.

NFL offices in New York were also closed for Monday and Tuesday, which would have made it difficult for the league to process any trade paperwork.

The storm, a deadly combination of a tropical hurricane rolling north from the Caribbean and fierce wintry winds approaching from Canada, was expected to leave tens of millions without power, and trigger coastal and river flooding.

Ground and air travel was severely disrupted as local, state and federal officials urged those living in the storm's likely path to take adequate precautions.
