Just got word on Jeff Demps: "Trade imminent
Jeff Demps...Trade Imminent
Per Jeff Howe on Twitter...
Can Mallett be far beyond? CLE has not drafted a quarterback.
And with our newly acquired 6th, the patriots pick?
Not for less than their next 5 first round picks /Patsfans.com
Maybe a combo with Demps so we can get their next 6 first round picks?
If Mallett doesnt get trade now, he never will... IMO
Maybe a #3 in 2014 and a 6th today?
35,000+ posts say that there is no other place you'd rather be (among other things....)
I thought it was the next 5 Full drafts plus first born
Millions of things in real life say otherwise, but that my post was a joke crossing over from another thread was understood by at least one responding poster.
You're not going to start trolling this early in the day, are you?
You love this place and you know it, sweetheart.
Don't worry, we'll always be here for you!
The good news is, the Patriots are probably getting back value on a guy they didn't think would factor into their offseason program much going forward.
The bad news is, Demps, despite all his flip-flopping is probably among the top 3 fastest guys in the entire NFL and the team likely trading for him will make use of that if they have some type of an agreement with him about his motivations.
Wonder who and for what?
"Imminent" is a relative term..
lions interested allegedly along with bucs and cards
Of course, they just drafted a guy who ran a 4.38 40 with a broken toe. So there's that.
Rich Keefe must read Patsfans:
I was expecting Demps just to be cut because of no trade partners giving his stance on track and football.
Anything we can get for him would be a huge bonus. Something is better than nothing.
So I assume the trade will be announced whenever said team gets put on the clock.
EVERYONE interested in the Patriots reads Patsfans.com!
It is the best source for info and discussion on the New England Patriots.
could be a future pick though?
well if we get a 6th for demps bb just turned nothing into something. not bad for the ole magician!
I'm not getting the correlation. Either way, Boyce doesn't play at that speed in pads. Running fast in shorts is one thing but doing it on gamedays is another.
The broken toe issue makes it even more prevalent. For reference to what I mean, Julio Jones in 2011 ran in the same ball park as Boyce (4.39 at the combine) also with a foot injury as well, the difference is Jones plays significantly faster than that on tape unlike Boyce.
Jeff Demps has Olympian level speed and is one the few NFL players to run the 100m under 10.1 seconds in the rich history of the league. His personal best is 10.01 secs. Also he ran 9.96 secs, but that was heavily wind aided. Comparing Boyce to that is silly at best.
Jeff Demps...Trade Imminent
To who?? 10
He'd be a perfect Raider.
Did Demps run those times in pads?
They drafted another fast guy, who is not as fast as Demps but he is fast. That's all I was saying. I know the difference between playing in pads and running in shorts. You're taking an offhand comment and blowing it out of proportion for no reason. That's what is really silly at best.
If we even get a 7th round I will be happy. With him committing to track he won't be as focused on football and will not be training appropriately for it. He is already a small player and could find himself simply re-injuring himself again.

RT @JennaLaineBucs: The Patriots have traded Jeff Demps and a 7th rounder for Bucs RB LeGarrette Blount..
we have bolden who does a lot of what jeff is predicted to do
but we didnt have a BIG back, for the 1-2 yd gains (which killed us in AFC champ game), and now we do w/ Blount
who has btw some real highlights under his belt....im not sure why his production has been falling recently though
