    From Reiss via Sirius Radio. I'm not really sure what to make of it:

    Well, duh. :) Is there any other team whose QB roster you'd trade straight up for New England's?

    Edit: I said Howard Stern, I was corrected. My bad. :) :(

    In general, looking at the excerpts Reiss had, I read the tea leaves as if he was intimating "I want to get a lot in a trade for Cassel".

    The context is important:
    The connection between things happening in the NFL and a Cassel trade tells me he is hoping other teams will pony up.

    Stern isn't a sports guy, so to give this statement context was Kraft sitting next to a porn star or topless stripper when he answered this question?:)

    The question above was actually from the "Opening Drive" program that included Peter King, who asked the question about a potential Cassel trade.

    I think the answer to the question is obvious, if the Patriots get value in return, yes. I don't see any scenario in which Belichick is looking for anything less than mid-first round value for Cassel. How he defines mid-first round value is subjective.

    Hell, Brady is available for the right price. The right price might take a Hershel Walker deal, but anyone on the team could be acquired for value.

    At times I might be inclined to say the same thing about King as far as being a "sports guy", but he clearly doesn't attract that crowd as interviewees.:)

    King's one of the best in the business. The insanity about sports journalists, columnists, commentators and analysts on this board is just ridiculous.

    Just a joke following up my prior post, Deus. I don't really have issues with King (in fact I have defended him on numerous occasions despite the Spygate idiocy). Next time I will bracket the phrase with a joke disclaimer rather than just ending with the smiley face.

    Oh, man.... my bad. Somehow, I missed the smiley. Sincerest apologies.
