I'm confident there will be more surprises
Thomas is okay with this trade. If he wasn’t, he could just say he wouldn’t report to the Jets voiding the trade and force the Pats to cut him or keep him.
I hope Brown ca keep it together
You know it just occurred to me that we haven't mentioned ONE area of the team that could use some more depth besides the OL. The defensive line. Couldn't we use another fatty to back up Shelton. What's Mike Pennell doing right now? Maybe he'd be willing to come back at the Vet Minimum to add depth at the position. The Parry kid seemed to do a decent job when he was here? Might not be a bad ideas to add some heft on the DL for GL and SY situations.
Adam Butler is kinda fat.
The.... Jets... ???
When I'm thinking "heft" I'm thinking 330 heft, not some guy who is a natural 285 and bulked himself up to get to 300 (and lost his quickness in the process). When you think on it, Guy is the only guy we have on the roster who would be a competent 3-4 DE.
The Steelers played themselves out of a running game Sunday. When we play the Jets I'm guessing the DL will be tested a lot more. I'm still a little nervous about our "light in the pants" DL.
Brown will definitely end up the # 1 target.
Between Andy and I we beat that topic to death.
what in gods name did he do that he was traded to the jests
I hear ya, Ken, I was just kidding (probably should've used an emoji)!
And, yes, we do need another big DL. I'm still waiting on Cannon's report first though when looking at priorities.
More than Demaryius Thomas???
I think Belichick makes this trade partly because he knows how good our secondary is and can matchup against Thomas in a future game
I mean the Jets are getting the Patriots off the hook for a guy whose salary was effectively guaranteed and probably had no role and was a potential cut and gave up a 6th to do it

Elumeanor is awfully raw to be our starting RT. However, Dante knows best. Obviously, it would be great if Elumeanor was the starting RT and Cunningham were good enough to be the swing OT.
I remember when we carried 4 OT's especially when we carried only 3 TE's. I think that the team would look much stronger with a veteran OT, a Bodine equivalent at OT.
Sorry this was a dumb move ....a 6th? And the guy waited after he was cut to re-sign here...could have gone to any team ...And THEN we trade him to a DIVISION rival....and More Insulting than that.....The Jete?! All I can say is wow
And what conclusions, if any, did you come up with? We have an open slot, who should get it?
Yeah I don’t mind them trading him...even if nasty move it is a Business....but to one of our division rivals?! This would seem like a first
Safe indeed, till someone opens a spot on their 53 man roster and makes one phone call.
That’s my thought...why the Jete? No other takers?!
