Re: End Result of Randy Moss trade is acquisition of Ryan Mallett
What makes this even better is that, to get Moss, the Pats gave up a 4th to Oakland, which the Raiders turned into John Bowe. NE got 3 terrific years from Moss, then made the trade that got them a 3rd-round pick with which they took a potentially franchise-quality QB.
AND, if I'm reading this right, the fourth they traded to get Moss was the other part of what Tampa gave up to move up in the first in '07, the other part being the pick that eventually became Jerod Mayo in '08.
So, in other words, with the 28th pick in the 2007 draft, the Patriots got Mayo, three years of Moss and Mallett.
