    Pat's aren't looking like they are going anywhere this year which means they might be willing to sell some players at the deadline CB is in my opinion a big area of need for the packers with King being frequently injured and entering free agency next year and Sullivan though generally good is a bit inconsistent.

    With the top teams in the NFC having stacked WR's looking at Tampa, Seattle, Maybe Arizona having a guy like Jackson as our number 2 CB could help a lot when we get to the post season.

    He'd cost next to nothing against the cap but will be a RFA next year.

    That'd be great. By the way read an article yesterday that the Pats have contacted teams around the league to let them know that pretty much anyone on their roster is available for the right price.

    I get really skittish about trading for defensive talent on the Patriots.

    and people are trying to say that Belichick wouldn't tank to try and get a crack at Trevor Lawrence! :laugh: Trevor was diagnosed yesterday with COVID, will sit out the next 10 days.

    Understandable but when I watch this guy play he just pops off the screen and his stats back that up plus his cap hit would be negligible this year and he's a RFA next year.

    You have to take chances sometimes and the top NFC teams are loaded at WR having Jackson and Jaire to shut them down would be huge in the playoffs.

    I am not criticizing anyone for being interested or saying it's a bad idea. But Belichick is such a terrific defensive coach, than I am concerned that any defensive player will end up being worse after he leaves his defense. So the prospect of it makes me a little nervous, that's all.

    It would be smart for posters to take a look at players actually possibly being available via trade.

    Even with the Patriots not performing like a contender there's no reason to believe Belichick is interested in trading a 25-year old player who will be cheap to re-sign as a restricted free agent.

    There have been reports that NE is willing to listen to trade offers for just about everyone on their roster according to Sports Illustrated and some sports writers that cover the patriots have already brought up the possibility of trading JC Jackson I don't see how it's that far out.

    So they would trade him for a first round pick? Idk enough about him but I think he's a zone corner.

    Yes, everyone please stop what you're doing and wire tap their phones and hack their emails so that we know exactly who's available via trade. Do not foolishly trust that he said they'd listen to offers for "almost anyone", we're only smart if we know exactly who's available.

    Those sports writers earn their paycheck by publishing stories that create some traffic for their respective sites, there's hardly any truth to their reports.

    It makes sense to at least evaluate the contract situation of a player reportedly available via trade. Teams that are out of contention are mostly interested in trading veterans resulting in cap space being saved going forward. It's rare that they trade a young player headed for restricted free agency.

    Ask yourself, if the Packers find themselves at 2-4 entering this week, possibly resulting in being a seller at the trade deadline would it be more realistic that they are interested in trading Kirksey, Wagner, Turner or Lowry instead of Sullivan???
