Logan Mankins Trade Proves No New England Patriots Players are Untouchable
Just one day after the surprise trade of offensive tackle Logan Mankins, a career New England Patriots player and one of the team captains, the idea that coach Bill Belichick is willing to pull the trigger on his top talent has once again become a reality. It happened with Randy Moss and Richard Seymour, among many others, and it is highly probable this will happen again.
The Patriots’ roster is currently filled with superstars — Tom Brady, Vince Wilfork and Rob Gronkowski, just to name a few. The Patriots are often stereotyped to have a “no loyalty” type policy where no player is favored or given a hometown break simply because they have been with the team for so long. Just this offseason, New England nearly let Wilfork go, but ultimately they were able to sign him to a new, discounted deal. It may be difficult to imagine a team without Brady as quarterback, but the harsh reality is that this could happen.
While Brady may not be as high on the chopping block as Wilfork, or even Gronkowski, Belichick has a tendency to almost predict the future. He knows where the money is in all of his players, and freeing that cap space makes room to sign players to help the team in the long-term. Brady has and continues to say he is willing to take a pay cut if it would help the team, but how would he feel about being shipped off to a less competitive team for a similar reason?
Most likely, Brady would retire before anything like this would ever happen, but the point is the Patriots aren’t afraid to do it; and n0 player on this roster, no matter the experience, Pro Bowls or celebrity status, is safe.
