Devin McCourty has been a staple on the Patriots defense since he was drafted in 2010.
He's entering free agency for the second time in his career.
And let's face it, the Patriots defense without Devin McCourty would be very, very strange.
Now, I think it would be safe to say that McCord He has been a very reliable and consistent piece over the past decade, and I have argued at times that Devin McCourty is one of the most underrated safeties in the entire NFL.
Now, when McCord is on the field, we expect nothing less than stellar decision making, toughness and reliability.
McCord He's only missed five games out of a possible 160.
Hey, look, any time that I talked about Devin McCourty, I always point out that he's the quarterback of the secondary and his eyes I a hood of Patriots wire points out.
McCord is value to New England's defense is very similar to Brady's value on the offensive side of things, and that being said, the Patriots are in a tough situation, having both McCord E and Brainy scheduled to hit free agency this year.
Ah, and it's my opinion that the Patriots.
If they want to stay competitive and make a legitimate push for their seven Super Bowl, the Patriots have to re sign both of them.
And if they can't get both, they at least have to get one of them.
And even though everybody believes that Brady would be the priority, I have to believe that they're both equally important.
You know, there were rumors that after the Patriots one Super Bowl, 53 that McCord he was gonna retire.
Obviously, he returned and made it clear that he's gonna be playing football again in 20 20 and he's made it clear that's with the Patriots or without them.
But it's my humble opinion that it would be better if it was with the Patriots now.
He definitely didn't play like a 32 year old 2019.
He caught Ah, five interceptions.
He defended seven passes.
He also tallied two forced fumbles and he recorded 58 tackles on the season and a lot of Patriot fans.
They want Bilbao check to focus on strengthening, strengthening with weapons around Tom Brady and I don't necessarily disagree with that process.
But I would like to see ballot shack, keep the defense clicking and somewhat replicate what they did last season.
And let's also be clear, like who'd says? Belichick has always been a defense first guy in 2019.
Prove that New England needs their top tier unit to contend.
And the offense wasn't great and struggled to score points in 2019.
And the Patriots wouldn't really come close to winning 12 games last season without the stellar play of the defense.
Now, who had made a really interesting point when he said, Quote, it's very possible the offense regresses if Brady doesn't return or even if he does end quote.
And if that's the reality than the Patriots will have to load up on a defense and try to replicate the productive nous that they brought last season.
That, of course, guys is going to be very difficult with all the players that they have scheduled to be free agents on the D, especially like Kyle Vanoy, Jamie Collins, Adam Butler and Danny Shelton.
All those guys are scheduled to be free agents, so bringing back McCord E would be sort of a crucial chess move from Bala. Check this off season.
It's also not clear what kind of money McCord is looking for.
I think for me, I'm hopeful that McCord is comfort with the Patriots would lead to some sort of hometown discount because if somebody out there wanted to offer McCourty top dollar and he wanted to take it, there's no way that make the Patriots could match a really big deal right now.
And the only team that actually concerns me is the Detroit Lions.
They have a chunk of money available, and there GM is the players.
Former director of player personnel Bob Quinn, of course, map.
Patricia's their head coach, and they would probably be very interested in Patriots defensive players.
I've already predicted that one of the landing spots, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if Kyle Van Noy returned to Detroit and joint Patricia join trade flowers.
It kind of rebuild what they had in New England, and I guess I don't know right now.
I guess we'll have to see wait and see what happens.
But I'm really, really hoping that the Patriots can bring back McCord e.
What's going on everybody and your boy Ray and welcome to my little show here.
DP and Sports talk live on SportsCastr On today's show, we're going to be discussing a not so no new rumor from W E E I.
But I just heard about it yesterday.
But according to Danielle Murder, Dante Scarnecchia retired from his position as the Patriots offensive line coach because he knows that Tom Brady is leaving the Patriots this year.
Right? And coaching one more season was all predicated on Brady returning to the Patriots and 2020.
Now I want to give you all a big spoiler alert.
I think this is one of the most ridiculous rumors that I've heard yet around the NFL.
Quarterback Josh Norman is hitting free agency reports came out today that the Washington Redskins have released their 12 year veteran, and I guess his reunion with Ron Rivera didn't go well.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has been a bit of a story around the NFL.
Winston, you threw in excess of 5000 yards in 2019 was eclipsed by his 30 interceptions, and a lot of people believe that the 26 year old needs a change of scenery and apparently the box had.
Coach Bruce Arians is only focus on the defense and couldn't care less.
Who was quarterback is.
And then the last thing I want to talk about is, according to Nesson, there is a lot of buzz inside Gillette Stadium that the Patriots are serious about signing A J.
Green and Hunter Henry.
I have a tough time trying to figure out how they get that done, but we'll go through it and see if there's anything that could happen.
Ladies and gentlemen, Happy Valentine's Day, Everybody, I hope that you have better things to do than spend your Friday night with me.

And with all that being said, let's get this party started because here on DP and we like football.
We like football season and everything that goes with it pats nation NFL fans around the world.
Let's get this going.
Look whether it's the L A Chargers moving on from Philip Rivers, Dante Scarnecchia retiring a nine year old throwing for three touchdowns and Pop Warner football, somebody will ultimately find a way to connect it back to Tom Brady.
A couple weeks ago, Danielle Mur she apparently dropped some news that one of her sources said that the New England Patriots, long time offensive coordinator Dante Scarnecchia, decided to retire because it was definitely not returning to the Patriots because Tom Brady wasn't going back to the Patriots and she dropped this so called news on January 28th.
And Bobby, one of my SportsCastr viewers, made me aware of it last night.
Now, guys, I need you to understand something because of what I do for SportsCastr.
Because of what I write for techno Hole, I spend good chunks of my day poring through everything that is written and said about the New England Patriots.
So the fact that I didn't hear about this until February 13th made me question and be su****ious of the validity of the reporting.
Now Merson two tweets on January 28th right? The 1st 1 gave us very little information.
It just said, quote Scarnecchia out equals Brady out.
Hashtag It's over, folks.
Now that sweet told us absolutely nothing.
Um, if I did come across it on Twitter, I I'd probably didn't even notice it.
And I probably just thought, OK, here's somebody else predicting that Tom Brady's leaving.
Let's just keep feeding the speculation train.
I think, too, though, when I first read that sweet today already knowing the punch line also, I couldn't connect it to right.
Why would Tom Brady leave the Patriots because the offensive line coach retired? I mean, Brady already want a Super Bowl when Scarnecchia wasn't on the coaching staff when they beat the Seahawks back in 2014.
But according to murder, it wasn't Brady who was affected.
It was scarred matches decision to retire because Tom Brady was definitely leaving the Patriots.
Here's what her follow up, tweets said.
Quote to clarify.
I'm not saying Brady will leave because Scarnecchia did.
I'm saying Dante is retiring because Tom is either retiring or done with the Patriots.
Now, I have no idea who Daniel murder source is, nor do I care.
But as a Valentine's Day, February 14th murder seems to be the only one who's floating around this rumor.
Now I tweeted at Mike Reiss of ESPN and I asked him if he heard these rumors.
If you could confirm it or if it's just, you know, only w e e I.
I did that because in the past I have asked Reese to clarify stories for me, and he's told me, having heard it, heard it.
He's made some sort of mentioned.
I also believe, from when he reported on scratches retirement, that he is a direct line to Dante because he talked about texting him during that.
And I got nothing back from my grease, and I took his silence as one of two things.
Either There's absolutely zero truth to this rumor, and that's sort of the side I sit on or he's heard it.
But there's not enough evidence or it's not a trusted source who said it so to me.
What this kind of sounds like is just another case of somebody trying to make a prediction about Tom Brady.
But but it's somebody who's really not in the know, and I don't know.
All this is done has resulted in more rumors, and it's probably probably in case there's some truth to it.
I don't want a calmer A liar.
I also believe that her source did tell her that this was happening.
But I think that this could be a false narrative.
Now, considering that this story picked up no steam outside of w e e igh.
And trust me, I searched the hell out of this today.
I searched the hell out of this.
I put in every single kind of algorithm, every sort of single search I could to try to see what people were saying about this.
And right now, Daniel is the only one who's talking about it.
So I'm just gonna put this under fishy, and I don't believe it until I don't know.
Brady and scarred Naja confirm it.
It's not like Scar Natural.
Retiring kind of came out of left field number one.
This is the second time that he's retired.
You first retired in 2014.
He came back in 2016.
He's 72 years old, which seems like a retirement age to me, and I mean, really, a 72 year old retiring shouldn't raise any speculation about what the quarterback is doing.
But here we are again.
Guys, here's what's important to remember.
Not everything that happens in this world is about Tom Brady, and I know Patriot fans may disagree with me, but it's not people doing things it with their lives that don't involve Tom Brady has nothing to do with Tom Brady.
Not everything is about the goats, and it's almost becoming a little bit tiresome that any person, any coach on any team does anything it relates back to Thomas Brady.
This off season since the beginning of January has been unbelievable.
It's been frustrating.
It's been interesting.
I will say that for the most part when you put it all together, it's been highly entertaining, and the best part is, is not seen has happened.
Yet the Patriots have made zero moves, and yet this is one of the most interesting off seasons we've ever had in Pats Nation.
And look, I love talking about the Patriots.
I love the Patriots.
I love being a Patriots fan.
I can't believe that I get paid to talk about football and the talk about New England.
And when I started making this transition here of not just being the Patriots guy but started writing and talking about other teams and then I talked about the XFL But I guess just football in general.
I got to admit, you guys, I was a little bit nervous and I don't know, doing my research for these shows.
I was almost a little bit bored because all I wanted to do is with pump out Patriots stories and talk about Patriots stuff all the time.
Now, though, getting the talk about other teams means that for a minute.
I actually don't have to talk about Tom Brady's free agency, and I am now thrilled covering other topics outside of New England because I am sick to death of talking about Tom Brady's contract.
So you know Tom Brady is looking for a new contract.
But apparently Josh Norman is, too, because reports broke today that the Washington Redskins are looking to change the makeup of their team and they've decided to move on from their veteran cornerback.
Reports say that the Washington Redskins are releasing Josh Norman.
He's been there for four seasons now, and this was first reported by my Garafalo on the NFL Network.
Now to me, when I look at this move, I think this is both a financial move and I believe It's a talent decision Norman had one year left on his contract with the Redskins are going to save, like $12.
4 million towards the Catholic cutting him? Ah, that's according to sport track, By the way, I have a lot of respect for Josh Norman, you know, And there was a point a couple of years ago, a few years ago that Norman was probably one of the best F or one of the best corners in the NFL.
Unfortunately, Josh Norman's play has really declined in a decline.
I mean, he found himself on the bench.
And when you look at the 2020 season, it's really not worth the 15.
4 million that the Redskins would have had to pay him.
And they were probably better off letting him go, saving the 12.
4 and moving on in life.
Now he's 32 years old.
Um, he signed with Washington's a free agent in 2016 he signed a $75 million deal, and at that point time that made him the NFL's highest paid cornerback.
For the most part.
The Redskins got a lot of mileage.
Out of that contract between 2016 and 2018 he recorded 195 combined tackles and then get another like 47 2019 between 2016 and 2019 he he had seven interceptions in eight forced fumbles.
I mean, that's not a bad return on that kind of contract.
I think you're kind of expecting that kind of move out of your cornerbacks now.
Norman spent his 1st 4 years of his career with the Carolina Panthers, right, and then he made a really big dramatic exit to the Redskins.
So Ron Rivera, Norman's former coach with the Panthers, he is now operating with the Washington Redskins.
And I don't know that led me to believe that the Redskins might try to keep him and that the Redskins would try to work with him.
You know Norman, of course, he cut his teeth with the Panthers.
20 15 was his year.
He recorded 56 tackles, he forced five fumbles and he intercepted the ball four times like unbelievably crazy.
Ah, he was named for as an all first Team All Pro that year, and then he was due big money.
The Panthers hit him with a franchise tag, but one of the more surprising moves of that off season.
And I forgot all about this.
But when I was reading the story today, it came back to me.
Eventually, the Panthers had just presented the tag they allowed.
Norman hit the open market and off you went to Washington and Carolina lost one of the best corners in the game.
And you know, I'll never forget his final year there.
Him and Odell Beckham Jr just going at it.
But with, you know, I guess they have bad 2019.
We could see the decline.
He was ranked 190 first out of 199 quarterbacks by pro football Focus, and now he's got a point.
Always guaranteed money is basically paid, except for $3 million.
He'll be looking for his third team in the NFL.
You know, Josh Norman could really be a cheap option for teams looking at some depth.
I don't think you can be waiting for him to become this big playmaker for you, but if you're looking for some depth on your on your your secondary, I'm talking about Josh Norman could be that guy, all right.
I don't really have much more to say about Josh Norman, but I want to talk about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a second.
I'll be honest with you.
I never thought that that sentence would ever come out of my mouth.
But Jamis Winston's free agency is kind of interesting.
That's kind of interest in Tom Brady's, except for different reasons.
Ah, Winston, I think the best way you could describe him is he's been on an underachiever most of his career.
And you think that when you're 26 year old starting quarterback is a free agent guy you took in the first round? Not that long ago.
You kind of just assume that he's gonna get re signed.
But it's looking more and more like the Bucks, Maybe ready just to move on.
And Bruce Arians already said he's way more concerned about his defense and getting them all lined up and signed. Then.
Then his quarterback and Arians was asked about his team's needs, and apparently he knows without a doubt what his team's priority will be when it comes to free agency, he said.
It's the whole defense.
You've got to get them all.
But those young guys grew.
We can't let that go.
I don't care who's my quarterback.
We've gotta have a defense and quote Wow.
I mean, I don't care whom I who's my quarterback.
That's really a vote of confidence from your head coach.
I mean, I don't know how the question was asked.
I got that quote from an article, but ****, you know, I mean, you start talking about how you have to dress your defense of free agency and you add a job like I don't care who my quarterback you have.
You know, I don't care who my quarterback is.
I mean, how does James Winston react and bounced back from that kind of comment? How does he look at his future and think, Man, I You know what? I gotta be with the box.
Let's look at Tampa Bay's defense a little bit here.
You know, if the box is serious about addressing their defense, you have to assume that their number one priority is gonna be re signing other their linebackers.
Shack Parrot guy recorded like 1919 and 1/2 sacks last season.
It's going to cost them a lot of money, man.
It's gonna cost him a lot more than the four million that they paid him last season.
And the box have a ton of guys that are slated to be free agents, you know, away from James Winston, but especially the defense.
Jason Pierre, Paul, the dominant soon Carl.
Missy Beau Alan.
I don't know some other off addressing their defense.
I still have to ask, What the hell are you going to do with Winston? Like what? It's not a really strange here, right? He threw for a ton of yards, but he also became the first quarterback ever to throw 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions during the regular season.
But away from his struggles like Winston has a lot of talent, and I feel like, you know, Tampa would try to hang on to him and see if they can work through these mental mistakes that he's making.
But I mean, area is basically double down, that he doesn't care if the Buccaneers move on from Winston.
I mean, he was asked, Can you win without Winston as your quarterback? In his answer was quote, Definitely you know when he says this, he says, quote, You're just sitting there waiting to see if there's someone available.
Is he a better option? And then that's the problem.
You get about three days to decide the legal tampering period.
Is somebody gonna get let go? What's the trade values? It's really monotone us right now because you don't have any answers. End quote.
You know, like for me, like if you're waiting for the Tampa tampering period to see if there's a better option out there to me, you've already moved on like, Are you waiting to see if you can get a Philip Rivers or Tom Brady? And that's not me speculating like that's an actual question I have right now.
Is this all for leverage to get Winston to agree to a lower deal like Oh my God, I'm going to get kicked off a Tampa.
I better sign for whatever they offer me.
Do you want to give him a long term deal like I don't get what Tampa is doing here? I'm not knocking them.
I just don't get it.
I have no idea what's going on with Winston.
I have no idea who the boxer interested, And if they move from Winston, I have no idea what team would be interested in.
Winston, who's now coming fresh off, is eye surgery.
I mean, this is kind of a fun story to watch.
I'm really kind of hoping that I don't know.
People will start paying attention to this one instead of Tom Brady all the time.
But it's fun, man.
It's a different story like and one that I think people should walks, and it's gonna be very, very interesting to see how this all shakes out.
All right, I have one more story that I want to talk about before I answer your questions from Instagram.
But I was reading a story on Ness and today, written by Recoil.
And according to Doyle, the Patriots have a lot of interest in signing A J.
Green and Hunter Henry.
Now, those are two guys that have been linked to the Patriots, basically this whole offseason, the whole office.
But you know, the last couple of months.
But I think this is the first time that anybody's actually reported that the Patriots have actual interest in them and look, it's becoming really clear to all of us.
If the Patriots want to re sign Tom Brady, they're gonna have to sign them weapons, right? I'm not quite sure how Bilbao checks gonna pull this off and get big free name agents and signed Brady for the $30 million are reportedly willing to pay him.
It's also not clear if ballots Jack wants both Henry and Green or, you know, if one of them seems like a better option.
And one of my SportsCastr viewers last night also made a good point.
He said The draft is so deep that wide receiver this year that it could lower the price of A J. Green.
Let me quickly run through the article or parts of it.
I cut some of it out, and then, you know, I could give you my final thoughts.
It goes like this quote Henry is second round pick in 2016 would go a long way towards filling the void created by Rob Gronkowski is retirement.
The 24 year, 25 year old has battled injuries, including a tourney a C L that wiped out his entire 2018 regular season.
But he's been very productive for the L. A Chargers.
Wen healthy Henry is coming off a 2019 in which he totaled 55 catches for 652 yards, both career highs with five touchdowns, positioning him for a nice contract in free agency.
Green, the fourth overall pick in 2011.
He missed all of 2019 due to an ankle injury.
He's also turning 32 in July, so it's fair to question how much he has left in the tank after nine seasons.
Ah, but Green, like Henry, figures to be rewarded handsomely on the open market.
After all, he's a seven time Pro Bowls bro selection, who averaged about 79 catches for 1173 yards and eight touchdowns during this seven season stretch from 2011 to 2017.
Adding Henry or Green almost certainly would boost New England's offense potentially for the 2020 season.
And it might even enhance the France.
It might even handsome franchises chances to bring you back.
Brady, who has spent his entire 20 year career with the Patriots being selected in the sixth round of the 20 of the 2000 NFL draft, um, and be the difference in New England maintaining the status of a perennial Super Bowl contender.
But perhaps we should take the chatter with grain assaults.
The Patriots would need to do some salary cap gymnastics to afford both brainy and a couple of star studded offensive upgrades, especially if the veteran quarterback is unwilling to accept another hometown discount ahead of his of age 43 season End quote.
I mean, Doyle basically outlines everything that we know Henry and Green would boost the Patriots offense back to what we remember, but the salary cap seems to get in the way of this, you know, and making these kind of moves.
And last as I floated before, maybe Tom Brady really doesn't care about the money, and he take the pay cut to secure Green and Henry.
Speaking of which, and this isn't to try to knock Tom Brady or something.
It's just something that, you know, my nerdy cell found funny.
But this season was the first year ever that Brady was paid in the $20 million.
He's always been under 20 million, the highest he was ever paid before.
That was 19 million.
But over his career at the Patriots, they have paid him over $235 million.
So I understand that Tom Brady took all these pay cuts and we'd always go look how great of a guy he is giving, leaving all this money on the table, but 235 million dollars over 20 years? I don't think he's starving right now.
Um, we always act like Tom Brady was working for minimum wage.
Just to win Super Bowls, two 135 million granted, is a lot less than he probably could have made.
That's not really money toe laugh at.
That's, um, I would take an eighth of his salary.
I would be content with that because I could almost live the rest of my life on that kind of money anyways, My point is it would be great if the Patriots could add Green or Henry or both.
But I just don't know about that, does it? I don't know how you signed Brady.
Bring these guys in and address some of the defensive needs.
That's where things confuse me.
That's where I don't know how balance check pulls it off, all right? That's all I planned for tonight.
30 minutes almost on the dot home.
Uh, I'm gonna answer your instagram questions and I will also take questions from everybody on SportsCastr if you have any.
So if you have any questions, you can put them in the chat box now and I will do my best.
I will answer them.
But I'll do my best to give you an answer that you like.
Um and I'll get I'll do that after I get to the question that got an instagram If you can't make a live show here on SportsCastr at 9 p.
Eastern time except for tonight where I had a late start I'm here almost every day of the week.
Follow me on Instagram at dp An underscore a check out my story daily in Instagram I put up a question box.
You type your question into the box and I come on here and I answer it.
I put it up for about an hour to two hours, get nine or 10 questions today.
I got a lot, but I got a lot of duplicates, but I get the questions and then I enter your questions.
So just give me a second here as I pull it up on Instagram.
Where are they? Where did they go? Where did they go? Oh, maybe I won't be answering them because I saved them.
I've got a bunch of stuff about the XFL here because I put out one tweet.
Spaghettios, I cannot find Oh, this isn't good. Guys.
This is not good.
I guess this is what I get.
I deleted it too early.
And now usually I can delete my story and still get the notifications of what the questions were, but they're gone.
So what I'm going to do is trying to remember some of the questions I got my typical 10 questions of dough.
I believe Tom Brady is gonna come back.
I feel like such an ass right now.
I cool, Bobby, I'll look for it.
Um, I felt such a nice time to think of some of the questions on man.
And my boy Joe sent me such a good question, and I cannot remember it, and he's not on, and he can't re ask it, and I honestly, I can't remember any of the freaking questions I got asked, and now they're not on my instagram account.
See, I've just made it look like I'm a bloody liar who said he would do something that now we can't.
Um, Tim thinks of the questions I got.
So I know I got a question about brain.
You know, I believe that Tom Brady's gonna come back to the Patriots.
I think I've answered this question 5000 times.
I do believe that Tom Brady will be coming back to the Patriots.
I didn't get a question about Antonio Brown.
Antonio Brown be returned to the Patriots this year.
That's a hard no, you know, that's a hard no for me.
I do not think that he will be back.
The Patriot could get Paul Richardson for cheap and revive his career.
Oh, yes, the Richardson question, cause your question intrigued me because I already thought about Richardson when I saw I saw this story today that he was getting released.
I think if the Patriots are able to get a legit receiver, Richardson could be a good depth piece with the current rock.
I think what they do if they could move on from from Mohammed Sunu and bring in Richardson is like 1/4 or fifth option for them have sort of like an ataman.
Will Harry somebody else? Somebody else.
Richardson, Jacoby Meyers.
Or, you know, somebody else.
Adult men, um Nick Eel, Harry Richardson, Myers, Oshinsky.
Something of that nature I think he could.
To me, He's a guy you don't sign on March 18th ease of guy, that you wait to see what you want to do it receiver, and then you bring him in.
But it's funny because I thought about that, too.
It's why, when I first saw it, I thought, Oh, my God, Patriot fans all over gonna be asking me about about Richardson.
Um, but I also knew that it also intrigued me.
But that's what I was my thoughts initially on it.
I might do a little bit mawr in depth, but ah, I'll have to see about that.
But for me, it's It's, I think, that he could be a really good depth piece, especially since, like, the fourth or fifth spot.
Um, would it be an upgrade over? Let's say Philip Door set.
It would all depend, um, where he comes and where he goes now.
and I remember this question that Joe sent me now, which I thought was a good question, was about the offensive line.
And he said, If Ballot Shack decided that quart and four hole where the answers to the offensive line would that change the draft? Now? I don't think they are.
But for the sake of the question, Joe, I will.
I will pretend that, um, ballot check things, then.
Yeah, definitely changes the draft.
Um, because I see the Patriots taking ah ah, chunk of offensive linemen in this year's draft up to two, maybe three, and we No.
One in the real late rounds.
Um, if he thinks that those are the answers and you kind of got your offensive line rounded out with them, then you're maybe looking from one, possibly two offensive lineman in the draft, so that would change it completely.
I know that, You know, you know my opinion on I believe the Patriots are going to be bringing in three offensive lineman from the draft this year.
Um, and I also think that they're going to sign another veteran offensive lineman and try to build that depth and everybody can battle it out and see what happens.
But yeah, if he believes the Cordon fund for old at least has a depth if he thinks that their depth pieces and that's the depth that he's gonna go with this with this year, I think 100% that for old, uh, I think 1% it changes.
The draft was a good question.
The chicken block says.
I also think that the Pats go for Hunter, Henry and Erica Bron, Um, and forget about getting receivers of free agency and just get a couple in the draft.
You know, a man that's been my exact thoughts, too.
And I've said that a few times.
I think the Patriots are going to address the tight end position when it comes to free agency.
Now, as a lot of people know, I'm in Austin Hooper guy.
That's why I'm hoping around the team.
I wouldn't be surprised if they go hard it at Hunter Henry, but I'll be honest with you, man.
I don't agree with you on Eric Ebron.
I think they're gonna go after Tyler Eifert over a bone.
Um, Eric, they'll probably go after if things don't work the other way.
I got no, you know, I got no beef with that run.
I brought it with my in my in my fantasy team for the last three years.
He's got me a ton of points, so I know how that guy can ball these and fantasy.
Um, but I think that they go.
I think they have a factual ation with Tyler Eifert.
They tried to trade for him again this year.
Maybe because he was on on coming on his last year of a deal, and they thought that maybe they could make a move for him.
But I believe that that they like I've heard life, and I believe that that's where they're gonna be.
I think that's where Palin check is gonna be putting, um, his stock William in.
But if even if it's if it's Henry in a Brown, I wouldn't be surprised if the two of them, if the two of them end up of the pages by agreed to 100%.
I think the pages were gonna dress it tight and position in free agency and you dropped the receiver depth.
It's so deep, you know? I mean It's so deep in this year's draft that they really don't have a reason toe.
Have to spend money in free agency because you can get NFL ready caliber players explosive players in the draft this year, and you don't even have to spend a first round draft pick on it.
You can find them in the second round and possibly the third round.
That's why I still don't put a passed Bilbao check to trade out of the second round.
It's just Ah, it's what it is.
So thanks for your questions, man.
I appreciate I apologize to everybody.
I 10 questions on Instagram, and I'm really, really upset now that I have lost those questions because I shouldn't have.
The problem was that somebody came up in, like, 400 of my pictures today, and because of that, I lost the questions that people were asking about.
So tomorrow I'm gonna screenshot, Hm, just in case they're not working.
Well, wait a minute.
I screen shot on awful tweet I saw today that I'm gonna throw back in somebody's face one day, she advises. That's fair.
I was thinking that abroad because you have Henry blocker slash blanc role in a Bron Who can be that glorified wideout due to his athleticism.
100% agreement, I'd have no issues with it.
And it's my feeling.
I don't know ****, obviously, what the Patriots are actually gonna be doing.
Um but I just have I don't know, for some reason I have this feeling that Tyler Eifert the guy they're going for All right, so I apologize.
Everybody who's questions I couldn't get to because I lost them.
I really, really apologize about that.
