    This thread covers players traded for and traded away. It does not list all the picks involved, and it does not list pick-for-pick trades. You can figure that stuff out from the link at the bottom of this first post, if you wish. I'll use the same 5 year window I used for the draft selections.

    2019

    Michael Bennett traded for
    Michael Bennett traded away
    Jacob Hollister traded away
    Korey Cunningham traded for
    Jermaine Eluemunor traded for
    Duke Dawson traded away
    Russell Bodine traded for
    Keion Crossen traded away
    Demaryius Thomas traded away
    Mohamed Sanu traded for

    2018

    Danny Shelton traded for
    Jason McCourty traded for
    Cordarrelle Patterson traded for
    Brandin Cooks traded away
    Jordan Richards traded away
    Josh Gordon traded for

    2017

    Dwayne Allen traded for
    Brandin Cooks traded for
    Kony Ealy traded for
    Marquis Flowers traded for
    Johnson Bademosi traded for
    Jacoby Brissett traded away
    Phillipp Dorsett traded for
    Jimmy Garoppolo traded away

    2016

    Chandler Jones traded away
    Jonathan Cooper traded for
    Martellus Bennett traded for

    AJ Derby traded for
    Jamie Collins traded away

    2015

    Trades were gotten from the below link, and then following it backwards until the 5 year window was complete.

    Might as well do a free agents thread next. It may make for happier times.

    I wrote about that in the draft thread. Doing free agents is more difficult, as we're dealing with 90 man rosters that get churned over with a bunch of additions and subtractions. I can't find sites that keep a complete year-by-year tally, and I'm not particularly looking forward to having to hunt them all down myself. I could pull all the NFL transaction pages for each year, but that will get into a lot of "John, from some college" as a UDFA guy, and I'd have to hunt for the free agents from other teams, as well as determining where the cup of coffee guys would fit in.

    So, if the other two threads seem to be lively, and thoughtful, enough, I might effort the 3rd thread. But I'm going to wait on that for now.

    What I will do for now, though, since you mentioned this, is to give a few links to some incomplete FA lists.

    I wouldn't sweat the loss of Jake the Fake Part Deaux; there should've been enough good TE prospects/players already in the building by then.

    Regarding the 2016 moves: AJ Derby was actually traded Away, not traded For...

    ...and the trading of a 2017 5th-rounder straight-up for Bark Mingo was simply Terrible. That useless feckin stiff was about to be straight-up Released before Billy came a-calling...I still can't believe that there wasn't a pick swap or at the very least conditional snaps involved, similar to the Eric Rowe trade.

    a.) Wow, didn't realize that MANY trades were made.

    b.) I give the last 5 years an A+ just because of netting slightly more than a six pack of beer for Jordan Richards....that was a STEAL!

    3.) A few days ago, I looked at all 2020 season 4th year players (or 5 year first round picks that didn't have their option picked up) drafted in 2017. I think the Pats will be looking to trade for one of these guys as they are still on the final year of their rookie deal and could take a "leap forward":

    O.J. Howard
    Evan Engram
    David Njoku
    Gerald Everett
    Corey Davis
    John Ross
    Curtis Samuel
    Kenny Golladay
    Dede Westbrook
    Ryan Switzer

    Jacoby Brissett (two years starting QB), Jimmy Garoppolo (two years starting QB, 20-5 record), Chandler Jones (perennial pro bowl, DPOY this year), all combined traded for two second round picks and Philip Dorsett.

    I have no problem with the Brissett trade. I have no problem with the Jones trade. But BB just casually tossing JAG to the 49ers, rather than working the lines in order to get full value, was a terrible lapse of judgement by BB.

    Yep. No one will convince me that Bill maximized the return we got for Jimmy.

    Maybe Bill has a heart after all and liked the kid, therefore wanted him to go somewhere that would be good for him vs. off to the 3 year Patriots penalty box known as the Browns

    Think about what you’re saying, CS.

    This is a business not a charity.
