    this was posted on the ESPN Message board that Gorin was traded to Arizona for an undisclosed 2007 draft pick.

    Again, just a rumor, but I would be very disappointed if that is all he was traded for.

    EDIT: Now being reported by Mike Reiss.

    Gorin Now A Cardinal

    :D Wouldn't be great seeing on of their wide outs in PATS uniform? I know it is probably wishful thinking, but desperation on the Cardinals part may make this reality. Wait and see.......

    Whether I'd be disappointed would depend on the pick, I guess, but I can't imagine he's worth a whole lot. Honestly, if we got a #4 for him I'd be pretty happy. I wouldn't be surprised if he could only get us a #5.

    Keep adding those mid round draft picks, better than just releasing players, we seem to do well in the mid rounds.

    No problem. We have a lot of depth at OL.

    We will be packaging picks after this season. Don't we have something like 10+ picks for next year?

    I kinda knew Gorin wouldnt stay with us... and a pick is better than nothing (even if its a 5th round).

    No, I'm afraid that would be a strech of titanic proportions. Not even the Cardinals could screw up that bad.....

    I think this is a VERY strong sign that Light is healthy, O'Callaghan is performing well, and Kaczur is close to returning. With 3 good options ahead of Gorin at tackle, it's easy to see why they made this trade.

    Besides, Gorin sucks. :)

    There's also some WR out there who could end up going cheap like Charles Rogers, Lelie, etc, an excess of low picks may enable us to grab a WR without competing against other teams if we wait for one to be cut.

    We're already 2-up on draft picks for 2007.

    It's better to get something (a draft pick) instead of cutting Gorin or Tucker outright.

    Well the writing was on the wall for Gorin. I think this move shows us that the Pats felt they were dealing from a position of strength with their OL so they could afford to deal Gorin for a future pick.

    My only question is was there any truth to the rumor that Dallas was offering a LB for Gorin or were they asking substantially more?

    No, I think the Shanle-for-Gorin rumor was wishful thinking churned up by the fans of both teams.

    We're more than 2 up on draft picks. The Pats will be getting 4 comp picks for next year as well.

    By my counts, that gives the Pats 13 draft picks for next year.

    I would love the Pats to trade Branch to someone like the Eagles, Seahawks, Lions or Bears. In fact, If the Pats traded Branch for Muhammed, I'd be very happy.

    Heck, maybe the Pats can trade Branch for Santana Moss. I think that Moss would be great to have on the Pats.....

    I think they can get a 5, but we'll see... anyway your point about "not even the Cardinals could screw up that bad..." I immediately thought "THE VIKINGS COULD!"

    We need a trade w/Minnesota.

    Good for Brandon, I hope he does win the starting job, he served well, but I'm happy we can upgrade the position.

    Dan Koppen - 5th round
    Tom Brady - 6th round
    David Givens (gave us a lot of production before playing out his contract) - 7th round
    Troy Brown - 8th round

    It's quite possible to turn a 5th rounder (or below) into a productive (or better) player.

    No doubt - I was just trying to temper expectations that we won't be getting a great pick for Gorin. Now, Cassel in a year or two is different :)

    Stockpiling draft picks to parlay them into a possible trade for a WR or LB.

    Tuned in to post the Kaycur angle ... but Amnorix already pressed that button.

    So let me opine ... that (a) Gorin will become a starter on that weak O-Line ...
    and (b) the Cards will have a pretty high draft rank.
    This conditional pick is going to be worth something!

    So a 7th round pick, a 6th rounder at best.

    Is anyone but me annoyed that we are trading a healthy, proven tackle, who has started consistently on a Super Bowl winning team, and will probably start on the team he's been traded to, for a damned '07 draft pick? This seems crazy to me.

    I'm trying real hard to "in BB I trust" this one.

    And a 7th rounder no less. Friggin lame.

    I was wondering how you went about pronouncing "Kaycur"

    I know how to pronounce "Kaczur," but not "Kaycur."

    Is it like "Caker?"

    :D

    I think it's that he was close to not making the team. Remember there was no O'Callaghan last year, Britt was on the PS, Light was hurt. There's a lot of new bodies now who were evidently better than him.

    No. He was going to be the 4th tackle on the depth chart at best (after Light, Kascar, and O'Callaghan). This probably also means Kascar is close to returning.

    Not at all. Would you rather get nothing for him when he is released in a few weeks? Assuming Kaczur is coming off pup soon, Gorin was not making this team.

    Also, I could be wrong, but it seems to me that NE targets teams that will likely have poor records in doing these types of trades. If Arizona has their typical 6-10 season then that pick would only be a few later than the one that nabbed O'Calaghan this year. I think all 4 of the players taken in the 6th and 7th rounds this past year are better players than Gorin, who has almost singlehandedly removed Daniel Graham from the offensive playbook the past two years.
