    That is the title of this article - I added the ?.

    NFL - - FOX Sports on MSN

    The Patriots are mentioned in 2 of them.



    4. TE Ben Watson to the Bengals: This talented New England tight end has run into a numbers battle with Alex Smith and Chris Baker pushing for playing time. The Bengals, meanwhile, have a desperate need with Ben Utecht (concussion) on IR and Reggie Kelly hurt. Carson Palmer's new tight end is Daniel Coats, who played fullback last season. Palmer definitely needs some receiving help.

    7. QB A.J. Feeley to the Patriots: It's amazing how many times Feeley has been traded for a non-starter. The Eagles don't need him anymore with Michael Vick and Kevin Kolb around — Coach Andy Reid can survive with Donovan McNabb and Kolb until Vick is eligible in October — and the Patriots are looking because 2008 third-round pick Kevin O'Connell was released. Luke McCown would be great behind Tom Brady, but he's too pricey.

    What is with these "experts" ? I know, I know... media you say... but seriously ? I don't go to my job unprepared. If I did, my superior would call me in.

    Baker is #1. Smith is on the bubble at best. Thomas is probably #2 at this point. And Watson is there for reasonable dollars and has experience. As much as people put hi down, Watson is ahead of Smith, I'd have to believe.

    Remember when Terrell Owens was supposed to have been traded to Baltimore for a draft pick? 49ers get 51st overall pick in return - NFL - ESPN

    I don't see this as a real possibility. Baltimore will have to be content with a healthy Mason and Heap and the emerging Rice as the main beneficiaries of Flacco's passes. Moreover, I don't see Brandon Marshall being traded to the Jets either. I read Denver is seeking David Harris and a first round pick.

    I posted that article because I thought some of his "trades" were interesting. However, when you "trade" you get something back in return.Maybe he could have given some idea of the values of the trades he is advocating.

    Watson to Cinci could work, perhaps for a 4th.
    I'm not sure that Belichick wants Feeley, but giving a TE makes sense or a 4th.

    Would a 4th be too little for Watson in his last year?
    Would 4th be too much for Feeley?
