Apparently we are trading our third rounder for him...There goes my Travis Daniels plan...and my Fab Washington plan...

The last pick in the 3rd round for a proven playmaker at corner. Ill take it.

He's had injury problems, but IMO, thats the only downside with him.

WHen he was in Baltimore, he was one of the best playmaking corners in the game. He leaves for the money in ARizona, and has no one around him to help him out, and he struggles. He needs to be in a D that can get pressure on the QB(every corner does), and when he is, he's successful. I think he'll be great as a Patriot, assuming he stays on the field.

Now that we got a CB, who do you think we will draft?

Also, who else do you think we will sign?

I'm hoping and praying for Kendrell Bell. Is there any chance we can get him?

I think our draft needs remain the same.... CB,LB,WR and OL. We lost brown...so our reciver need is big. Sante and Blue are great and now starks...but whos behind them? no one lol...we still need more depth there. Im starting to worry about the o line. Granted we will get a few guys back we didn't have for most of last year. Hochstein and ashworth.

As for how the draft plays out...the only WR id be willing to use our first rounder on is Mark Clayton. If hes off we need to take the best corner available for our system.

Did anyone else notice at the end of that article it said that they will enter 05 with Tyrone Poole. Whats the deal with him and how come everyone is writing him off?

yea, if he is such a great player - why would Arizona get rid of him? Come on, a 3rd rounder for a guy that probably won't even start - yea, great move...

Yeah a 3rd rounder for a proven player with experience that fills a depth need and can start in a pinch and is ready to play now, is that dumb? besides, Starks has one more Superbowl ring than most of your Cowboys.


Belicheck didn't get his 3 superbowl rings by being dumb.

Pretty good pickup for you guys. AZ actually had some good secondary players last year. Bring him to New England he will probably play even better. Denny G is trying to revamp that team, get some new players in there. And You guys need to get some more corners.

I am not a pats fan, nor a Cardinals fan. However I do think this was a decent trade for both parties. I think that most fans, have learned that alot of "nobodies" come into new england and just flat out get the job done.

I like the move for you guys...homeboy makes plays, he returned one INT for a TD in the Super Bowl...all players who go to AZ seem to get lost in the desert...he's learned his lesson and probably just wants to win again.

It could be that whole Dillon thing about losing all the time in a [inappropriate/removed] franchise...I know it was a trade, but I'm sure their will be contract restructuring and Staks'll take less to play in NE - if that's so then he's made his money and he wants another ring...for the last pick in the 3rd - he's a steal

Its Arizona dude. They are rebuilding(as always). A veteran that makes a couple mill for a 3rd round pick? Thats a no brainer on their part.

They dont have the personnel for any corner to be successful yet. Put Ty Law in AZ, and he would struggle. So moving an older player for a quality draft pick is a good move for them.
