    That's already been posted 3 times in the other Deion Branch threads.

    Truthfully, if we went the WR route - I'd guess Justin McCareins.

    I vote for Justin Miller. Up and coming cornerback with good kick return skills.

    Although without Branch, I am not sure what our WRs willl look like.

    After doing some research, I find this rumor to be entirely inaccurate and false.
    The Jets don't have any 'pretty good players'.

    I went down their roster and outside Vilma and some rookies...blech!

    McCariens will most likely be cut....

    If he has to go to the Jets, we better get Coles - I still want to have a legitimate #1 WR for the opener. Plus, Coles AND Branch on the field together would be a bit scary if the Jets found a decent QB :)

    Maybe, we can play #2 draft pick as our wide receiver this year.

    Jayson Chayut should get an "Agent Of The Year" award from the

    NFLPA if he has pulled this off.

    I really don't care where he goes. If what we're getting back in return is of equal or greater value to us, then send him on his way. While i'd like Branch to remain a Patriot, trading him within the division is not a concern of mine.

    Pennington is no Brady and Branch will be the lesser without him.

    Actually, if you make a good trade, it is smarter to trade within the division.

    If we get back more value than Branch is worth we not only improve our franchise but hurt theirs, in 2 ways. First, we ultimately end up with more talent in the deal, and secondly the saddle their cap with his contract.

    In retrospect trading Bledsoe within the division was doubly smart. We improved our team, and the team that got Bledsoe hurt themselves. Wouldnt the Bills be better today if they had never had Bledsoe, had used that cap money on soemone they still have, and had Ty Warren was well?

    Its stupid to make a bad trade within the division, it is VERY SMART to make a good one within the division.

    Probably McCarins.

    Now way it's Coles. That would basically be trading equal players but then the Pats getting an additional pick.

    What? Why would you cut a #2 receiver who has averaged over 50 catches a season for the past the 3?

    His capabilities are negated by their QB situation, who the hell is going to throw him the ball? How is that person going to throw the ball behind a line that is going to start two rookies at key positions? Calm down if we get McCariens and a second round pick you should be drinking at the Arizona pats fans club watering hole in celebration.
