    She works for New England Sports Journal.

    She's been on the leading edge of breaking news so far this FA, so whomever her source is in Foxboro appears legit.

    My guess is Mallett because we need picks if we give up a 3rd for Sanders.

    Unless were about to add a certain island to Pats nation :)

    She's the one who called the Donald Jones signing and is saying Abraham will sign with the Pats later tonight or tomorrow. Forgot who she works for.

    Leigh has been on point so far, as for "big trades" ...are we actually talking about a trade or does he considering handing over our 3rd to sign RFA Sanders a trade?

    I hope he didn't read IB's Revis tweet and is now rolling with it.

    Dennis Farrell ESPN is the one saying the Pats are set to make big trades, not Erika Leigh.

    Maybe Incarcerated Bob=Dennis Farrell. But Farrell seems to be based in Detroit, how would he know about Patriot trades ? Maybe Gronk for Megatron ? Just joking.

    She was the first to report Jones had signed with the Pats. She has press credentials as she was on the Amendola conference call

    I can't think of a single reason as to why Pit would trade for Mallet? Especially for a WR that is projected to start for them.

    Maybe Cruz? Could be anything really, if it's accurate.

    Hah-- thank you. Everyone's asking who Ericka Lee is (when I believe her name is in another thread) and I never even heard of the guy spreading the bigger rumor. ESPN has some credibility when you talk guys like Schefter, but they have a lot of floaters who post crap.

    We shall see.

    Clearly they wouldn't trade him to Pit. It would be to the Browns or someone else.

    I meant to another team because we are going to lose a pick to get sanders.

    Hah -- Lombardi and Belichick team up to stick it to Pitt

    Hm, can't they just sign him and give up the required third?

    I have no issue mortgaging a bit of the future to win now with a 36 year old Brady. So fire away and get him that 4th ring to end the GOAT nonsense.

    Future pics for someone? You would think! Other than Mallett, I dont see them trading bodies for pics and they have few pics this year. I dont even see Mallett as a big trade especially if it were for pics. Its rare you see a player for player trade.

    A big trade would be 2 nd rd pics or a 1st in 2015 for a impact player who would still have to be cap friendly. Fitz? Cruz? Do they need another WR? Revis perhaps?

    It was a reference to Welker from 07 when we threw Miami and 2nd and 7th instead of just signing him to the offer sheet.

    "a big trades"

    If that's not ambiguous, I don't know what is.

    Disable Jersey

    FWIW (not much) a moron on a Best Damn Patriots Group FB site has been forecasting for hours trades involving Pats DL and LBs. Claims he's never been wrong. Did correctly forecast Wes' contract #s though, a Welker hater.

    They can, but then Pittsburgh could match. This would be a way of sweetening the deal for the Steelers to keep them from matching the contract.

    Of course, with their cap status, that would probably be an empty threat anyway.

    Maybe the Pats hear "if you throw in a 7th, we won't match" which allows the Pats to sign him to a friendly deal in terms of this years cap.

    There may be other bidders. Plus signing an RFA very, very, rarely means a switching of teams. Almost always the team matches. All "signing" an RFA does is to stick to the team tendering the RFA.

    What really happens is that there is a signing by the original team and a trade, with a late rounder thrown in.

    Either Sanders or Cruz could qualify as discussions on a big trade, or of course, Revis.
