    It really feels like the Patriots have a plan to free cap the shoe will drop soon.

    How would people feel about trading Edelman Hightower and our third for Tua?
    Is he good enough to make that kind of sacrifice?
    Is he that much better than Stidham?

    Tua will be the second QB taken, at least somewhere between 1-4 picks. You think Edelman, Hightower and our third is enough? Sorry, not even close.

    I believe the team and Thuney have a deadline in place to negotiate an extension. If it passes w/o a deal in place he will be traded on draft day.

    In terms of other big salary players like High being moved your guess is as good as mine

    Seales-Jones is a stiff who can’t run routes, block or catch.

    Get him in space he’s dangerous with the ball in his hands perfect for a security outlet to pick up first downs for the Chiefs.

    That is better, but still falls short. A couple of people have said Miami could swap a number of #1's to Cincinnati. I don't think Tua's injury puts him too far behind Joe Burrow. Edelman is older and Hightower will be a FA soon. Flores might be a force soon. Who Knows what BB is going to do.

    No team would make that deal. Two oft injured veteran for an oft injured rookie. Not against moving Edelman and maybe Hightower but the return will be nowhere near what you are imagining. I would like to see what Stidham can do. I liked him the best of the QBs in the previous Senior Bowl. If he stinks then we can TRADE UP FOR TREVOR.

    Any trade up to around 5 will have to include our top pick next year. I wouldn't do it just
    in case we suck. I don't think we will. But, injuries and if Stidham or Tua don't play well are
    definite possibilities. Yes, I'm old enough to remember; Tippett, Veris and Lippett getting injured in 90.

    I want to see what we have in Stidham, and don't want to give up future picks..

    That may be true, but it would still constitute a half measure.

    There is no reason they should not have given the same 1yr contract to Seals-Jones as KC did. Little to no risk for a player who still has untapped potential vs Lacrosse who they signed to a multi year contract for probably twice the annual salary.

    I will say, the Pats hired former Browns exec Wolf just before the start of FA. Seals-Jones played for Browns last year. Perhaps Wolf knows something we don’t about the player?

    I'm certain that's what they thought about LaCosse last year.

    I've never understood why folks think that a player would sign a certain contract to play for the patriots, just because he signed a contract to play for someone else.

    If it turns out they pursued him and he chose KC, than that is different. I would feel better knowing they pursued a veteran TE to enhance the group. If he wanted to play for a star QB, fine. Pats would have offered him the opportunity to earn TE1. Chiefs had less cap money than the Pats just a couple days ago. Not sure if their desire to sign Seals-Jones motivated them to extend Watkins to free up cap space or it was just timing. Bottom line,
    the player was available until yesterday. No reason to believe he would not have signed with us.

    I doubt it. It's been stated many times on this board that board members know more than BB, which is why BB screws up all the time. Don't think Wolf is any better. Listen to the board, members have won many Super Bowls

    The Patriots have 0% chance of extending Thuney. They want a huge hometown discount
    and his agent would be crazy to accept. No other players are willing to lose money by extending either. Kansas City with $177 cap space does have players willing to restructure.
