Ah! I mis-read it. My mistake. I interpreted it as:
Patriots get: First overall pick
Texans get: Patroits 2nd round (62 overall) + Mallet.
But either way, my issue isn't so much trading down, as I'm open to do it with Bridgewater. My point is that going the Mallet route would be exactly what we've been saying for years now was our problem in the first place: go get a franchise quarterback and not some other team's trade bait.
