They were asking for a high second last year. He's done nothing to increase his value since. On the other hand, the Pats have commited to Tom Brady for quite some time & have had pretty good success finding QBs in the last few years.

The interest in Hoyer is two fold. If the Browns feel good with Hoyer, then the possibility of them moving up with us to draft someone other than a QB is more plausible. If it appears that the Rams are in love with Clowney... we may be able to swap with Cleveland & still get Bridgewater.

Not really. Proven talent has lost it's value in the NFL. We've seen good/great talent traded for next to nothing over the last 6 years or so. We gave up Demeco for a 4th. The 49ers got Boldin for a 5th. Well... the Browns did get a 1st for Richardson, but other than that...

Then Kraft has an affection for McNair. Perhaps Belichick has an affection for O'Brien.... perhaps they both want to do Crennel a "favor"


Who knows?
