NFL Network: Cooks a Patriot (MERGED)

Recommended Posts

Just heard it.  Trade w/New Orleans.  Saints get #32 pick.  Pats get a 4th round pick.

they have traded their 1st for him. Might be more. This has been the most active I have seen the Pats be in an offseason in a very long time.

I believe New England is also giving up a 3rd.

Ahhhhh.. Thank you.  This makes more sense and seems a lot more reasonable!

I mean they're winning super bowls without these guys so on the bright side it already can't get any worse.

plus mac has capitulated and initiated the blow it all up rebuild- we have no shot for several years so if all goes right Brady will be retired in 3 years when our rebuild may be paying off.

Pats have now traded their 1,2 and 3 picks. Got a third back from Carolina in the KOny Ealy trade. Very unusual

Yeah, maybe they realize Brady only has a few years left and are loading up trying for a repeat??

As Patriot Killa said, that might also be why they kept Garoppolo. Brady's got nothing left to prove as a QB. It fits the facts that this could be Brady's last year

^Pretty much. Hard not to sell the idea of loading up on premium talent, mortgaging the future for a 3-4 year window for the chance at becoming the greatest football dynasty and franchise in their respective sport's history. I'd call it a no-brainer.

Well for sure you better have some CB's and safeties that can cover their guys-

Brady maybe retiring after this coming season. It would explain a lot. Gearing up for 1 more run so Brady and Belichek can cement their legacy as the undisputed GOAT at their respective positions Just to be clear I don't think Belichek will retire just Brady.

Only thing left to do is ride out into the sunset with a SB win like Manning did. Think BB will pull out all the stops to make sure that happens. Why else would they be acting so out of character this off-season.

Just wait...a boatload of picks will be coming their way when they trade Garopolo to the Browns

I could see it going both ways for Bill I think him and Tom are tired of the NFL tbh lol. Media in particular.

INdeed. Or they might turn and trade Garoppolo to the Browns and get picks back. I think those are the two options, but right now, I'm leaning towards your theory

Could be. I just think if Brady does retire Belichek's and his ego will want to prove that he can without Brady. Maybe why he's keeping Garapolo. Guys an ego-maniac so I could see him thinking that way.

and a 4th from N'Orlins.  I think it's worth it.  Basically giving up a 1 & 2 for Cooks and Ealy with an improvement pick round 3 and an extra pick round 4.  That's a freaking good haul for Belichick and makes them better.

Not worried.  Jets just brought back Tanner Purdum.

Maybe that undefeated season that eluded them?  Final FU to Shula et al?  Keeping an eye on Butler and Garoppolo.

Jeez.  The NFL might as well just be the Pats league now,  Teams are going to just bend over and help them win every year.  At least they can't play other sports.

Their first rnd pick is basically a high second rnd pick, and when they swap third and fourth rnd picks they're basically just moving back a few places so it's much less than it appears.  Further it's likely they'll get a third rounder back in two years when he gets payed..

what really matters here are the finances.  They are taking on cheap contracts with these players and now it looks like they'll be able to afford the rest of their FAs, like Hightower or say allow them to extend Butler or Garropolo.  It's just a ton of flexibility and is really quite a great deal across the board.

The biggest hitch is whether Cooks is able to learn their playbook...

Reminder that the Pats 3rd rounder is the very last pick in the 3rd round.  So it's almost like a swap of 4th rounders (in addition to the #32 pick).

They gave up at least a first for him but **** me why the ******* Pats. 

Who cares? We aren't competing with them this year anyway. I rather they give up draft picks and put all their eggs into winning this coming season.

They'll keep winning as long as Brady is around regardless of what trades they make to help them win this year.
