Patriots: 49ers rumored interest in Tom Brady could lead to a trade for Jimmy G

March 4, 2020

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj There’s no chance in hell this really happens.  However, with all the talk of San Francisco suddenly being a real player for Tom Brady in free agency it’s worth looking at the mind-boggling scenario. With numerous reports around the NFL from extremely credible sources, there has been legitimate chatter over the last few days – but really the last 24 hours – that would suggest the…


Patriots: Veteran quarterback options for the Patriots if Tom Brady signs elsewhere

February 29, 2020

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj I was hoping it wouldn’t come to this. Free agency doesn’t start for another two weeks (technically,) but if you’re to believe many of the swirling reports, Tom Brady is as good as gone. While of course there is always the chance that Robert Kraft swoops in last minute to save the day, I believe the lack of ass-kissing from Belichick towards Brady is ultimately going…


Patriots: Thoughts on the Patriots and the combine

February 27, 2020

With the on field workouts of the NFL Combine kicking off tonight, I thought I would share some of my thoughts on what this combine means for the Patriots. Here are ten thoughts. 1.It doesn’t appear the Patriots have met with Tom Brady’s agent Don Yee as was reported earlier in the week. In fact, Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald has reported that the Patriots have not spoken to…

The news of the meeting reinforces the notion that Brady has an interest in returning to the New England and is willing to give the Patriots the first opportunity to sign him. League sources have been reporting the past two weeks that…


Patriots: The Raiders rumored offer for Tom Brady makes sense for both sides

February 17, 2020

Image courtesy of Silver and Black Today Reports surfaced over the weekend that the Las Vegas Raiders were prepared to offer Tom Brady a two year, $60 million dollar contract. On the surface, this seems like a typical Raiders move by owner Mark Davis and head coach Jon Gruden. The Raiders love to sign aging stars. In reality however, offering Brady a contract makes sense for Las Vegas. The Raiders…


Patriots: In a surprising turn of events, Nick Caserio is coming back to the Patriots after signing a multi year deal

February 16, 2020

The Patriots announced last week that Director of Player Personnel Nick Caserio has agreed to terms on a new contract that will keep him in New England. Caserio has been with the organization for 19 years and was promoted to Director of Player Personnel in 2008. If you remember last summer, there was speculation that Caserio was being courted by the Houston Texans and that when his contract expired after…


Patriots: Let’s play Tom Brady Roulette

February 13, 2020

Image courtesy of Bill Sikes/Associated Press By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj As the end of February approaches, the reality of Tom Brady becoming a free agent for the first time in his career becomes more and more likely by the day. The Krafts are doing their best to spin it, implying they are “letting” Tom Brady enter free agency because it will be better for all involved to see who has…


Patriots: Stephon Gilmore wins Defensive Player of the Year

February 4, 2020

By Kevin J. Stone/@kstone06/@newftbj On Saturday night before Kansas City ultimately ended a 50-year drought, the NFL held the now annual “NFL Honors” awards ceremony to officially cap the 2019 season. While we’ve grown accustomed to seeing other stars around the NFL accept awards at this event while Patriot players are holed up in their hotel rooms getting ready for yet another “biggest game of their life”, this year –…


Patriots: Richard Seymour not getting into the Hall of Fame this year is a travesty

February 4, 2020

Richard Seymour narrowly missed out on being elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame this past weekend. For the second year in a row, he finished in the top ten for modern candidates. Seymour has been on the ballot for three years and while he is inching closer to getting in, the voters just don’t seem comfortable with putting him in Canton right now. If Seymour were to get…


Patriots: Tom Brady is playing mind games and quite frankly, I am over it

February 1, 2020

Rumors started circulating that this was Brady walking into Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee. Others interpreted the picture as Brady possibly hinting at retirement.
