    We have too many WRs and he is clearly the worst of the non-ST playing WRs.

    Just to reiterate, Thomas almost certainly requested a trade to somewhere he will get targets after Brown was signed because he's got a possible Hall of Fame resume with probably only a couple years left to add to it and he already has a ring. These guys aren't robots, and Belichick probably has too much respect for him (especially after he allowed them to be creative with their roster a week ago) to make him a healthy scratch as pure Gordon/Brown insurance until Harry returns, in which case he would have been unceremoniously cut. Sucks the Jets were the only ones who would take him.

    And he accepts the offer. All of the above seems rather unlikely to me.

    I mentioned Harry.

    2 other receivers in Dorsett and Edelman isn't enough. We had that many receivers last year when we scored 13 points against the Rams and we had Gronkowski and Edelman gave an otherworldly performance.

    Surprised this happened but it's fine I suppose. They had too many mouths to feed hear anyway, but I thought considering the back round of the WRs they have that they would want good depth here. My thoughts are as long as we have Gordon/Brown the whole year for the most part this is fine. If one them can't continue to play for us for any reason I think we will rightly question this move.

    We are one injury away from needing Thomas.

    Let’s hope we do not get to that point.

    By the way, I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I dislike this trade more now than when it first became public.

    Correct he is eligible for termination pay. So that even more so settles it.

    Even if Brown gets released or put on ice via Goodell.. Watson is coming back in W4, we have 3 versatile RBs, Meredith is still on PUP and Harry is back around the BYE. We have enough depth to absorb injuries.

    We don’t need DT. He was a wasted roster spot yesterday, and now after the allegations he would still be a luxury.

    I’m not sure Watson at his age is someone that should be counted on for anything.

    Good then that he'd be a complementary piece in an offense that has deemphasized the role of TEs. Doesn't mean he can't contribute catches now and then or block a bit.

    This.

    Ffs, Thomas was a healthy scratch Sunday, BEFORE Brown joined the team. Before Watson came off suspension, and before Harry and Meredith came off ir.

    It's officially official. We're all in on AB, unless we're not.

    even off he replaces Develin as the 8th passing target (after 4 WR's and 3 RB's).

    I wouldn't read too much into DT being a healthy scratch last weekend. I have a hunch that if they weren't actively shopping him he may have played.

    Gotta hope Brown remains available, Harry returns to health and can contribute, and Gordon, Edelman, Dorsett stay healthy.

    As others have noted, if we lose Brown + an injury, we may be wishing we still had DT. I think he's a better option (right now) than Meyers. Long-term, though, DT's value is extremely low.

    Also, if they know Meredith is getting healthy behind the scenes and is showing an understanding of the offense then this move would make more sense.

    At the end of the day, let's hope the WRs stay healthy until Harry returns from IR, and that Harry is then able to contribute as much as DT could've.
