Patriots Rumors: Could Thuney Be On the Move?Greg M. Cooper - USA TODAY Sports

One day after the Buccaneers made a deal to acquire retired tight end Rob Gronkowski, it appears that another Patriots player could be next up on the trading block.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are apparently showing interest in Patriots offensive lineman Joe Thuney and may be interested in making a deal with New England to bring him to Miami.

The potential deal makes sense as the hope seemed to be that the two sides could work out a long-term extension for him after the Patriots placed the franchise tag on him last month.  However, so far, that hasn’t been the case and most reports have indicated that they’re fairly far apart in getting one done.

His current designation has him accounting for nearly $15-million against the salary cap.   With New England currently sitting with just over $1-million in cap space, something will need to eventually get done and if an extension isn’t going to come to fruition, moving him in a trade is clearly their best option.

The next question will simply be whether or not they can get adequate compensation, especially since he would be staying within the division against a team they’ll face twice each season.

The veteran offensive lineman has been one of their most consistent players during his tenure in New England, having started all 64 games since being drafted by the Patriots back in the 3rd round back in 2016.
