That's been floating around since before he retired. Willie McGinnist was talking about it.

Jarrod Mayo was hired as a linebackers coach

Chris Evans says he ‘might have to cut ties’ with Tom Brady: ‘I really hope he’s not a Trump supporter’

Off topic but who really cares what Captain douche bag thinks.
I'm sure TB12 gives a hoot, assuming he even knows who this guy is.

Patriots sign Demaryius Thomas to one-year deal

Veteran wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has a new home.

Thomas was signed by the New England Patriots, the team announced on Tuesday. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Thomas signed a one-year contract worth up to $6 million.

Thomas' signing comes a week after he visited with the Patriots.

The addition of Thomas reunites him with Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who served as the head coach with the Denver Broncos from 2009-10. Thomas started his career with Broncos in 2010 before being traded to the Houston Texans on Oct. 30, 2018.

With the 31-year-old Thomas, the Patriots have a player who once produced five consecutive 1,000-yard seasons (2010-16). Whether Thomas will be ready for football activities in the immediate future, though, is another matter.

Thomas suffered a torn Achilles while with the Texans on Dec. 23, but NFL Network's James Palmer previously reported Thomas should be back sooner than expected.

The Patriots also announced the re-signing of defensive back Jonathan Jones, a restricted free agent.

Patriots drafted N'Keal Harry WR from Arizona State with their first pick. I watched some highlights. He actually reminds me of Larry Fitzgerald. Not the fastest guy out there but big, strong, good hands and fights for the ball. Of he is able to grasp the mental part of the Patriots system he could be really good for them.

should be an interesting night tonight with 5 picks for the Pats.

Nos. 56, 64, 73, 97 and 101 overall.

And then 6 more picks tomorrow.

I'm curious how many of these picks the Pats will trade?

and the Pats did the only thing I expected them to do. They did the "unexpected" and traded up to 45. wonder who they want!

DK Metcalf is still on the board

Or is he going after a TE?

Patriots Draft Potential Tom Brady Successor in Auburn's Jarrett Stidham


The New England Patriots selected Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham with the 133rd overall pick of the 2019 NFL draft on Saturday.

The selection marks the second year in a row that New England has drafted an SEC quarterback to sit behind Tom Brady after taking LSU quarterback Danny Etling in Round 7 of the 2018 draft.

With Brady, a six-time Super Bowl champion and four-time Super Bowl MVP, still under center for at least a few more years, Stidham will have plenty of time to learn from the 42-year-old future Hall of Famer. Many analysts see similarities between the two similarly sized, pass-first signal callers.

Stidham joins the defending Super Bowl champions after spending two years as the Tigers starter. Stidham is the sixth Auburn quarterback to be drafted and the first to do so since former Heisman winner and national champion Cam Newton went No. 1 overall to the Carolina Panthers in 2011. He's the second Auburn player to be picked in this year's draft after cornerback Jamel Dean was drafted in the third round by the Buccaneers.

The 6'3", 215-pound quarterback began his college career at Baylor before transferring to Auburn. Stidham earned SEC newcomer of the year honors during his sophomore campaign. He threw for 5,952 yards on 63.6% completion for 36 touchdowns to 11 interceptions during his two years under center for the Tigers. The Stephenville, Texas native finished his career with five 300-yard passing games at Auburn.

overall a pretty good draft but I am pretty curious what the plan is at the TE position. Let's see how these rookies work out. Of 10 drafted, how many do we think will make the team? 3? Maybe 4 as the QB is pretty much a certainty unless he completely implodes? Worse case they would sign him to the practice squad, probably will anyway just to keep 1 more spot open for a position player and only bring him onto the roster if the UNTHINKABLE (and UNSPEAKABLE) were to happen.
