Is Mallet suppose to beat out Tom Brady for the starting position? Put Russel Wilson behind Tom Brady and Wilson wouldn't be doing jack either. B'OB "knowing" him is the reason why if this trade goes down it even happens

#Texans-Ryan Mallett reports have merit. Deal could be completed soon. Appears to have no bearing on #Texans' No. 1 pick. #NFL

Realistically, t isn't going to be, is it?

I'm thinking it is either a 2nd, or the trade is in exchange for us flipping our 2nd and 3rd round picks with NE.

Really can't see any reason they'd be giving him up for less than a 3rd - I guess with our high position in the 3rd if they're really willing to trade, then they might bite at that, but I don't really see it happening - NE are typically pretty shrewd with their trades and often get more back than they spent.

He is a free agent after this season. Something is better than nothing

That is true - I just don't see New England giving up a guy who they must trust to cover Brady if he goes down for anything less than a 3rd.

I don't know, perhaps it is a historical, annecdotal bias from how well they've worked the FA/draft markets - but I just don't see New England giving him up for a low draft pick in an act of desperation to get something back for him.

Edit: I will be stoked if we can pick him up for a late round draft pick - I'm just trying not to get my expecations up that there is going to be great value for us on this one.

No, but he has failed when he has played. It's not like he put up good numbers and just was not Tom Brady. His numbers suck. I am afraid they are going to make this guy our starter just because has worn a Patriot logo.

Wonder if its contingent on him agreeing to an extension. Hope it would be one similar to Fitzpatrick though.....

5-7th rd round pick? Gold. Now don't screw it up by giving him a dumb contract.

Well - looks like I'm completely wrong.

Looks like a good value deal there, and it is contingent on him accepting what we think he is worth at this point. Don't see a downside there - and gives us the freedom to go D with the 1st pick.

IŽd do it in a heartbeat for a 5th-7th rounder (although that must mean NE is not too high on him). But IŽd still consider drafting a QB if one of the top3 drop out of the first.

sigh...I have to keep posting this in multiple forums. lol

he is a free agent after this year. If Brady is playing 2-3 more years why would you want to pay a back up QB millions? get something, ANYTHING for him while you can

Well, if they only can get a 5th-7th rounder for him, he wouldn`t have demanded big money in FA. And Brady is getting up there in age as well. If they really liked him, I am sure they would try to keep him or get a lot out of him. A 7th rounder would basically be just giving him away for nothing.

If he knows he doesn't have a chance in hell at even getting a chance to start why would he stay for less?

I understand your point - but with his numbers, I don't think it is that much of a deal. He is a good insurance policy for the upcoming year at an affordable price. He is getting paid under $800,000 for this upcoming year, for someone who the Pats have been able to work with over the past 3 years, so they must have a degree of comfort with him.

If I were a Pats fan I would probably be questioning why someone who has the reps in pracise and familiarity and can be their backup for one more year is being shipped out for a 5th rounder or less (unless, they really have that little faith in him, which is a warning sign for the Texans).

Don't want and wouldn't offer anything more than a 5th. Who are we bidding against? He's a FA next year, what are they going to do? Say no and sign him to a big extension instead?

I thought this was dead when we brought in Fitz.

But.

If it only takes a 5-6th rounder... I'd be OK with that.

He knows the system and he knows OB.
