Veteran Starter w/Big Long Term Deal

I don't necessarily think they're in on Watson. But if they were, given Caserio and Belichick's professional relationship, I'm guessing those would be the tightest lipped conversations in history. It probably would only involve the two of them for the time being, so it's not surprising that Rap wouldn't have heard anything either way.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft agreed to guarantee more than $140 million to the team’s incoming free agents last week.

In past years, when his front office watched other teams spend even half that money in an offseason, Kraft says they would all laugh. Clearly, the Pats have had a change of heart.

“Look, we’re not going to know till the fall. We always used to make fun of the people who won the headlines in March

Robert Kraft: Patriots used to make fun of NFL’s big free agency spenders

The Patriots don't have the ammunition to set up that trade. It'd have to be a 3 way deal. If Caserio were to trade Watson without getting back either another top QB or a young prospect/draftee, he'd be done in that town.

Well, them two and Easterby. You know he's got Caserio's phone bugged.

This year was a perfect storm of having cap space, alot of teams in a cap crunch and an unprecedented pandemic making the cap go down.
