    an effort to bolster a wide receiving corps that is in turmoil with the Deion Branch situation, as well as the slow start by rookie Chad Jackosn, the Patriots acquired wide receiver Doug Gabriel from the Oakland Raiders on Saturday. The Patriots have confirmed the deal, which was first reported in the Oakland Tribune but the initial report did not indicate what the Patriots gave up in the trade. However, it is believed New England sent a fifth-round pick to Oakland in return.

    you've got to be kidding me.

    I don't understand why the Raiders would ever trade him for a 5th.

    Al Davis has finally reached a state of senility? That is the only thing I can figure, if this is true.

    Al: I want a third or no Gabriel for you!
    SP: A fifth and we'll say that the tuck thing never happened.
    Al: You have yourself a deal!

    It is a steal. I don't understand how Davis trades a starter for a fifth..........you know, he didn't look all that healthy during that Hall of Fame Induction.

    Sorry, afraid I drank it all last night (and boy am I paying for it)... still, you can always suckle on the sweet, sweet nectar of Patriots fandom in the new millenium, if you're willing to renounce the dark ways of Raider Nation. :D

    Are we really that suprised? This is the same guy who drafted a kicker in the first round.

    Bwahahaha.

    See ya Deion. Still think you're a good guy, but your agent ruined things for you in New England. Good luck never going to another super bowl again.

    So we basically gave up nothing for Gabriel, a cheap player with good work ethic and good hands. Once we trade Branch, we'll have two #1 picks next year, and 10+ picks in the 2007 draft.

    Nice.

    I'm getting this image in my head of BB and Pioli sitting somewhere in the bowels of Gillette, smoking cubans and tossing darts at a picture of Al Davis, laughing all the while.

    This is unbelievable if true. I think the trade with Seattle will go through soon, hopefully we get their #1 pick.

    So we lose a 5th rounder and Deion.

    We pick up a first rounder, Gabriel and still have plenty of space under the cap to sign whoever we want.

    I was wondering what our plan was the last few days. Seems like a great one.

    Presumably the Pats already have at least 11 picks (the 7 standard ones, +4 comps, +1 for Cobbs, -1 for Gabriel), plus whatever they might get for Branch. :D
