Tom Brady no longer being with the New England Patriots doesn’t have people thinking the sky is falling for the team, because the team has always come out on top by making a move that nobody saw coming. To be fair, they’ve never had to deal with a QB situation over the course of 20 years, because Brady has always been there.
The New England Patriots have been quiet on the quarterback market since Brady left to sign with the Bucs, aside from releasing Cody Kessler.
There seems to be a good reason fro that.
Ben Volin of the Boston Globe wrote it’s “definitely possible” that the Patriots trade up in April’s draft to select Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
“Wouldn’t it be just like Bill Belichick to swoop in and snag Tua away from the rest of the league,” Ben Volin of the Boston Globe wrote on Thursday. “Wouldn’t getting Tua be the big, bold move the Patriots love, and wouldn’t it ease the sting of seeing Brady go?”
Tagovailoa is projected as a top-five pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, with the Miami Dolphins being rumored as the team who is more likely to select him later this month.
It’s hard to imagine the division rival would relinquish their spot to a team that has dominated the AFC East for 20 years and possibly make way for them to dominate for another 20 years if Tua turns out to be the beast he was projected to be before his injury at Alabama.
