So apparently, SEA are "seriously" listening to offers for Sherman and are ACTUALLY considering trading him. (According to their GM)

Still a huge long shot, but he has said he wouldn't mind a trade to NE.

Again, it's a huge long shot, but something to monitor I guess as draft day approaches.

The thing is, Pats also don't have any 1st/2nd rounders as of now.. which is a slight problem.

Well, it seems they could easily re-acquire their #32 if they let Butler go to NO. I am not sure if that is enough to get Sherman or if two years of Sherman at big money is worth the pick and Butler, but it certainly would make us ultra-dominant at the CB position for the next two years.
NO is not interested in giving Butler an offer sheet so I don't think that's on the table.

Romo is replacing Simms next season, FWIW, so it seems his playing days are over.

That's the best news to come out of this whole thing.

That was my thought, as well. Wonder how many of us there are.

Pats have re-signed Brandon Bolden!  ;D

I think we'll end up keeping Blount too at a cheap rate, but he'll sign later this month (Not now).

Now there's a rumor going around saying that if talks with Raiders breaks down, Lynch would be willing to go to New England. Hmm... lol we're linked with EVERYONE  :P

Makes sense. He wants his title. Apparently, he was (not) involved in some big play against the Pats in the Super Bowl a few years back. Don't remember all the details.

Zolack said that the Sherman to NE deal isn't dead yet and that Lynch is putting off the Raiders because he wants to play where Sherman plays. Package deal sorta.

Amendola takes a pay cut to stay with New England next season.

And the Pats have signed an offer sheet with Mike Gillislee (2/6.4M, ~4M first year).

Early indications are that Buffalo will NOT match that offer.

In that case, Pats get Gillislee but also have to give the Bills their 5th rounder.

I guess that means Blount is officially gone  :(

I'll be bummed if Blount is gone. But maybe the Pats have their eye on a younger, cheaper power back in the draft.

Edit: But I'm glad Amendola's back. ;D

I don't think they'll draft a RB high in the draft anymore.

Already have Lewis, White, Burkhead, Bolden and now potentially Gillislee.

They may draft one in the middle rounds, but it's a logjam at RB kind of.

I think their focus should be O-Line (with Vollmer gone and Solder aging), and pass rush (need another with Ninkovich aging and Chris Long no longer here).

Butler has signed his tender! Trade still an option though.

Wow, a busy day for the Patriots.

I really like their current stable of RBs, but is Gillislee a power back?

I agree that the O-line should be the highest priority—gotta give Brady enough time to work—followed by the pass rush.

Bills decline to match the offer. Gillislee now a Patriot!

Thanks for #4 and #5 Blount Force Trauma! I guess this means he is gone for good now.

I like Gillislee, I like Burkhead, I like White, I like Lewis. I do wish we had a bigger back to throw at people, but our offense is stacked and very deep.

Blount was a good rb for us. I'm excited about the White/Lewis/Burkhead/Gillislee combo, which is ridiculously deep. So are the WRs: Edelman, Cooks, Amendola, Hogan, Mitchell, and Slater.  Combined with Gronk, Dwayne Allen, and Devlin, Brady has at least 11 legit weapons. I don't remember him having so many weapons.
