    Patriots Attempt Two Blockbuster Trades, Come Up Empty Both Times

    In the 24 hours before Tom Brady officially announced he was leaving New England, it appears the Patriots may have made a last-ditch effort to get him some offensive weapons. Two of the biggest trades that went down this week involved DeAndre Hopkins (to the Cardinals) and Stefon Diggs (to the Bills), and both deals went down on Monday, just hours before Brady officially informed Patriots owner Robert Kraft that he would be leaving the team after 20 years in New England.

    The crazy part is that it appears the Patriots had discussions with both the Texans and Vikings before each team decided to trade away its star receiver. According to the Houston Chronicle, the Patriots were one of four teams that the Texans talked about for a potential Hopkins trade. Besides New England, the Texans had trade discussions with the Eagles, Bengals, and of course, the Cardinals.

    Looks like youíre getting all butt hurt because an NFL post is posted in Around the NFL?

    Bandwagon Pat fans are going to drop faster than the Cards bandwagon fans. Pats will need to cheat with a snowplow whenever they can.

    All of the Steelers fans (which comprises most of this board), know how these games turned out, but have nothing to do with recent FA trade attempts. So get over it.

    What they have to do with is the only thing that counts. The Patriots win, the Steelers lose. Anything else is superfluous.

    You wouldn't know a whiff from a score if somebody stuck your nose in it.

    This thread has nothing to do with Steelers vs Pats and now your just being a petulant child because someone said something negative about your sacred team in the heading where it’s supposed to be. You have now lost COMPLETELY CREDIBILITY on this board.
