Even after Shanahan's denial that the Broncos and Patriots are part of a potential 3-way trade, the Denver Post again mentions the posibility of Lelie coming to New England and the Patriots shipping Graham elsewhere. http://www.denverpost.com/sports/ci_3923136 In other TE news, Christian Fauria seems happy in DC... though his comments illustrate that, although some people view it as essential to have 3 TEs, barring injury the third stringer really sees very little playing time http://washingtontimes.com/sports/20060611-125734-4393r.htm I still highly doubt the Graham/Lelie trade rumors. My gut feeling is that both the Broncos and the Patriots don't mind it being widely known that both Lelie and Graham could be had for the right price. In Lelie's case the Broncos desparately need to show that ANY team has an interest in him to keep him relevant for a trade. And for the Pats, if someone wants to make them an actual decent offer for Graham, I'm sure they'd listen... but not this "Graham and a draft pick" for Lelie BS we heard earlier... Other than that the Patriots have no interest in letting Graham go for anything less than good value, and will be content to let him play out his contract otherwise, regardless of whether they think Graham will be willing to sign a reasonable extension to remain with the team.
