    My bad, I thought the Allen mentioned was a QB.

    You can’t get more specific than “Good Boston sports player”? It’s not a though we could guess the player based upon his team, like... “Plays for the Red Sox, huh? Ok, who gave Benintendi the peach schnapps again?”

    Sounds unlikely to me, based upon Brady’s recent inteviews/comments. Also, what does “team friendly cap number” mean? 20 mill?25? I assume they would minimize the 2020 cap hit and take their cap lumps the following year, after the new CBA and TV contracts are signed.

    I’m part of the small but vocal minority here who thanks Brady for his outstanding service, but is ready to move on.

    There are other QBs that are Day 1 worthy, including Herbert and Love, both of whom will likely be gone by the time the Pats pick. Love is the more realistic option at 23 but his stock is rising with his senior bowl performance.

    I'd wait this year, and push in all my chips for Lawrence next year.

    If you NEED to get someone this year, get Jake Fromm in the 3rd or 4th, and let he and Stidham fight to the death.

    Of course he'll make a "full recovery," that never was in doubt. But whether a surgically repaired hip can withstand the rigors of playing NFL football for five or 10 years is another question entirely.

    Unless he falls to earth or the team with the #1 pick already has its franchise QB (seems unlikely), the Pats have no shot at Lawrence, I don’t care how many chips they use to splash the pot.

    Combining Patriots, QB and Eason together gives me a bad feeling for some reason. I'd be happier if we found a Grogan over an Eason. :p

    Because he's not going to be there by the end of a rookie contract so you might as well still prepare. If Brady still wants to go after 44-45 at least at that point you can see if you have something worth going with and at that age you can feel comfortable in getting more out of him than Brady

    Was kind of hoping the Oregon qb was gonna fall into trading range but his senior bowl has been really good so far.

    Get in line for Lawrence. There’s no waiting there and whoever has the first pick is either going to get a kings ransom that will set a team back years worth of draft choices, or they are just going to take him.

    Even with the worst qb in the league the Patriots would do no worse than 6-10 7-9 as long as Belichick is coaching.
