And then the Pats will be loaded again...not that it really matters

You do what you gotta do to try to get that franchise QB. I don't believe Garoppolo is that guy...and we see what happened the last time the Bears traded for a guy who grew up a Bears fan.

my guess is if New England trades him, they didn't see a future with him anyways, because otherwise he'd be invaluable to them. that might not be the case for any other position, but being the team's QB should be viewed on a much grander scale.

although I wouldn't feel too comfortable with Jacoby Brissett as the only other QB on the roster.

For the most part, the Friday Tom Coughlin process was quintessential Tom Coughlin. Direct. Candid but guarded, and candid about being guarded. On one of the first questions, however, Coughlin was asked a direct question and evaded it. Asked whether he is committed to Blake Bortles as the team’s starting quarterback, Coughlin opted not to say “yes” or “no.” The end result was a convoluted way of saying, “Maybe.”

Coughlin: “There’s plenty of work for everybody to do, Blake included. To raise the game to a higher level, it takes all components as well. That’s why I mentioned the protection first of all. Being at the right place at the right time, the timing, taking care of the football, which is paramount to that position. There can be no way the ball is turned over to that extent. I think he’d be the first one to say that he has a lot of work to do, but we all have a lot of work to do; I’m going to put it that way.”

Sadly, I think given a year off when entering the league along with a good QB coach or veteran mentor, Bortles could have developed into an above average QB, which is generally all you need to be competitive. He still could develop, but he has to have better decision making and get his accuracy under control.

If Johnny Manziel returns to the NFL, it could be as the backup to Drew Brees. That’s the word from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, who reports that Saints coach Sean Payton has taken an interest in Manziel and talked to him about a return to football.

In New Orleans, Manziel would have no chance of earning a starting job, but he could earn a spot as a backup to Brees, where he’d learn from a veteran quarterback and perhaps get himself ready to be a starter some day.

New Orleans. The perfect city for Manziel to stay out of trouble.
