    I love Malcolm Butler. His effort and character are exemplary. With Gilmore's performance last season there's an argument to be made overall Butler had a slightly better season. Gilmore, however, is taller, faster, more athletic, and at his best is better than Malcolm butler. Butler has good but not elite ball skills and athleticism, but not great.

    Richard Sherman is better than either of them. Maybe he starts his decline as he hits 30, but as it stands right now there's no question he's still better than either Butler and Gilmore. With that said, I don't see what the Pats could give up that would make sense.

    “My understanding was that Richard Sherman initiated this,” ESPN’s Adam Schefter said. “He was looking to get out of Seattle and he was open to that idea initially. They’re accommodating him by listening to trade offers and they’ll see what happens. Again, I don’t know that anything happens here, but we’ll see if something materializes before the draft.”

    Does he want out because he's sick of playing zone/not following his man? I know that's always irked him in interviews.

    Could want to get out of Earl's Shadow as well.

    About this Seattle window closing, they will still be a big player on the NFC (their division returned to the state of being a joke) but I think they are done, and they are done because the league has figured out Russell Wilson who is a really good QB but is a king of broken plays. Kinda of a rich's man (much more rich) Tirod Taylor.

    You keep him in the pocket and he is not a difference maker, he goes out of the pocket and he is getting banged up here and there.

    Sherman is a smart guy and among other problems (salary cap) he's probably seeing they are not going to win another SB so he wants to join the dinasty, there is nothing wrong with that.

    Of course, the Patriots do currently have the room to go with Gilmour, Sherman and Butler...

    Huge fan of the Sherm, even when he mouthed off against the Patriots. Dude just does his job well. Would love to see him in a Patriots uni.

    So did Carroll just get super effin' lucky in the draft his first few years? Because like the article said, since 2013, he has failed to pick up big name starters at all. Why is that?

    Because he had a NCAA coaching gig before going to Seattle so he could scout first hand a lot of players that were not big names or in top 25 teams.

    As USC's former head coach he had first hand knowledge of who was good in college. Now he isn't as good at drafting because all the players he scouted and tried to recruit are out of college.

    Chip wasn't picking the players in the first couple of years.

    Fine. Trade for Sherman. If you can't move Butler for a first rounder, you keep him for 2017 at $3.9m. Then your CBs for 2017 are: Sherman, Gilmore, and Butler.

    Three all-pro caliber corners, backed by Chung and McCourty.

    Teams will..... have a very hard time throwing on that secondary.

    Butler leaves after 2017 and you get a 3rd round comp for him. Or you franchise him and trade him to a team that would rather give up a pick than risk possibly losing out in a bidding war. They could always, at the end, drop the franchise tag and let him go for the 3rd round comp pick.

    Only problem is according to "reports" they'd have interest IF they lose Butler.

    I love Sherman the player, but his mouth/attitude makes me nervous.
    Really would like to have MB here long term. On the other hand I'm still waiting for Hannah to walk through the door.
