Just to be clear, I'm asking what you think Belichick would do, not what you would do. [Edits in bold.] Let's assume, for the sake of argument, that during the preseason, Mallett shows enough promise that BB would be comfortable with Mallett as Brady's only backup, Ã la Hoyer in 2009. Is there any chance of a trade happening near the end of TC? If so, what would the Pats need to get in return to see it as worth it?
