Take "in the running" stories with a big pinch of salt. Mostly done to get the actual teams interested to up their offer. Patriots are likely mentioned in at least 65% of trade talks nowadays.
Not saying Pats weren't but if they were it was a player for a player or their '18, 6th round pick a 'late round '19 pick or a combination of the,. They don't have a 5th and clearly they didn't offer a 4th or Bennett would be a Pats player.
And honestly I wouldn't give up a 4th this year for him. Decent size cap-hit and attitude issues. Would rather keep pick for potentially moving up from one of the first 3 picks.
It's going to be comical to read the meltdowns some (many?) of the posters will have a minute into the league year next wednesday if no Patriots moves have been announced...
If this is true, can't blame the team they had the right idea. Nothing you can do if he doesn't want to come here (expect have our head coach stop acting like a dink)
He chose fun over the Pats interesting
Think thats because we were releasing Martellus and maybe that pissed him off.
Unless he refused to play (essentially forcing himself to retire and lose out on 30+ million to Finnish his career) in NE if traded, I highly doubt the Seahawks took the 5th & 7th over a 3rd and 5th, especially considering they traded within conference to what can be considered their biggest rival in 2018. Im not buying it.
Thats just the media feeding the whole "nobody wants to play in NE" hype train.
Rapport used to be one of the best behind Shefter, but over the last year or so, he has just become another BS credit-less speculation spilling machine.
Or, maybe he chose the scheme that would play him as almost a pure pass-rusher over the scheme that would require him to play multiple assignments.
I never considered this.
I think Martellus being cut could have something to do if he DID turn us down as well.
The tweet is gone. What did it say?
Just let out a big Yosemite Sam “Ooooooooo!”
Idk many other pass rushers out in the market, so once again the Eagles screw us. Here’s to more under developed “pass rushers”
Losing to the Eagles again. Is it wrong to hope for a meteor to crush them.
A 3rd and a 5th seems like an awful lot to give up for a 33 year old D lineman.
They dont have the cap space.. they are over by 15m right now and will need to purge their roster of some big name players just to get under, and then restructure a lot of salaries to sign anyone in free agents and fit their draft picks under the cap
With every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.. we'll be seeing the latter fairly soon
Dolphins suppose to release Suh I prefer Poe but both would look great on our d line.
It was stated unclearly, but I think the deal was supposed to be read as, the Pats trade a 3rd for (Bennett + a 5th). The Eagles traded a 5th for (Bennett + a 7th).
So, we may be seeing Bradham on the market, after all.
Was a trade. He had no say.
