  Report: 'Zero truth' to rumors Pats are trading Gronkowski The Internet was briefly set ablaze on Friday with rumors and speculation that the New England Patriots were on the verge of trading Rob Gronkowski, but one of the team’s most connected beat reporters says that is not happening. Tom E. Curran of NBC Sports Boston is reporting that there is “zero truth” to any talk of a Gronkowski trade being imminent.Resume your Friday. I am told there is "zero truth" to imminent Gronk trade.— Tom E. Curran (@tomecurran) June 8, 2018For what it’s worth, one of Gronkowski’s brothers also dismissed the rumors as “fake news.”Sounds like fake news https://t.

The New England Patriots have a number of star players who are (or will be) angling for new contracts. New England has a pretty simple solution for players in those situations: Get rid of them and begin developing someone else.

With that history of ruthlessness in mind, here are five blockbuster trade scenarios Bill Belichick and the Patriots could consider.

1. Patriots trade Rob Gronkowski for two first-round picks

The Patriots seemed to have a number of suitors, if you believe the report that New England heard offers from the Tennessee Titans, the Detroit Lions, the Houston Texans and the San Francisco 49ers.

REPORT: Tom Brady Threatened Pats With Retirement if They Traded Gronk

  REPORT: Tom Brady Threatened Pats With Retirement if They Traded Gronk ​It's been a day of bombshell reports and rumors coming out of New England. And this one takes the cake. First, an unconfirmed report surfaced this morning the Patriots were ​working on a deal to trade Rob Gronkowski. Since then, it was suggested that New England had offers on the table from both the Titans and 49ers for one of the best tight ends ever to do it.The latest stunner, though? Per reporter Adam Kurkjian, New England was on the verge of trading No. 87, but Tom Brady threatened to retire if a deal went through.From multiple sources, here's what I have re: the Gronk rumors. Told Belichick wanted to trade him.

The trade allowed the Patriots to select Tom Brady’s successor in Rosen. Trading back with the Patriots and still landing Davenport at pick No. 23, one of the top three But he’s a prospect with more upside than proven production, making him a risky pick if the 49ers were to consider him ninth overall.

As those four teams are expecting to have successful 2018 seasons (and beyond), the Patriots would be fair to ask for two first-round selections in return for Gronkowski, who doesn't seem like he has retirement on his mind any longer (if he ever did). He wants a new contract, and he wants the freedom to train with the TB12 Method without criticism or skepticism. If he joined another team, he might have that freedom. It's just that he'd no longer be working one-on-one with Tom Brady.

Without a doubt, dealing Gronk would create a number of complications for the Patriots. But they seem like they've considered trading him before, which means they might just try to trade him again. For the right price, Gronk could be gone.

2. Patriots trade Shaq Mason for Seahawks S Earl Thomas

All the credit for the engineering of this trade goes to ESPN's Mike Reiss, who put together a deal that would send Mason to the Seahawks for safety Thomas, who would immediately get an extension upon arrival to New England. He wouldn't just bolster safety depth, he'd increase the level of talent among starters. That's why they'd be OK with giving an out-of-house candidate a significant extension upon arrival.

Bill Belichick cancels final two days of Patriots OTAs

  Bill Belichick cancels final two days of Patriots OTAs Just as New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick punishes for poor practices, he rewards for great ones. Apparently Belichick was happy enough with his team’s efforts during their offseason workouts that he cut the OTAs short and sent the players home for the summer.Patriots players were informed that today was their last day of practice until training camp. They were supposed to practice Thu and Fri, but they were sent home for the summer after a great minicamp.— Mark Daniels (@MarkDanielsPJ) June 12, 2018It’s worth pointing out that quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski skipped all OTAs.

The New England Patriots have had remarkable success with their trades over the course of Bill Belichick 's tenure in Foxborough However, could the Pats consider moving Amendola via trade and then ante up that money to keep Edelman? Amendola likely has value on the trade market, but

Otherwise, this blockbuster trade makes little to no sense from the Patriots ' perspective. One of the more realistic trade scenarios proposed by Barnwell sees the Patriots and Vikings strike another day-one trade similar to 2013's that involved wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson.

From ESPN:

"As for the financial piece in acquiring Thomas ($13 million average per season, matching Berry), the Patriots would add three years and $39 million on to the end of the 2018 portion of Thomas' contract, allowing them to spread out salary-cap charges over four years. The $22 million guarantee at signing and $28.5 million guarantee overall matches the deal McCourty signed in 2015, which is always a consideration to maintain harmony in the locker room."

The Patriots often play with three safeties on the field, which would mean Thomas, Devin McCourty, Duron Harmon and Patrick Chung would have to take turns getting their snaps. But the diversity of skills in the group would make for excellent game planning options for the Patriots. Every one of those players is unique. They may have a wealth of talent, but they aren't redundant.

As for the guard position, the Patriots would use Joe Thuney to take over at right guard and Isaiah Wynn to start at left guard. The Patriots would part ways with Mason in the year before his contract expires without the knowledge that they can't afford him when he hits the market. Zach Martin's deal proved as much.

Three days before draft, Patriots were making calls about a possible Gronkowski trade

  Three days before draft, Patriots were making calls about a possible Gronkowski trade It’s indeed “hogwash” that the Patriots had a trade for tight end Rob Gronkowski on the table, that they were ready to proceed, that quarterback Tom Brady threatened to retire, and that owner Robert Kraft vetoed the deal. It’s indeed “hogwash” that the Patriots had a trade for tight end Rob Gronkowski on the table, that they were ready to proceed, that quarterback Tom Brady threatened to retire, and that owner Robert Kraft vetoed the deal. That doesn’t mean the Patriots didn’t explore the possibility of doing a deal.

The New England Patriots are a professional American football team based in Foxborough, Massachusetts. They are a member of the East Division of the American Football Conference (AFC). The team began as the Boston Patriots in the American Football League

Patriots quarterback Ryan Lindley looks for a receiver against the New York Giants during preseason in 2015. With Tom Brady suspended for two more games, and Jimmy Garoppolo nursing a right shoulder injury, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick might consider bringing in another quarterback to

3. Patriots trade Trey Flowers for Panthers WR Curtis Samuel and a fifth-round pick

As much as Flowers has become a Belichick-favorite, he's also in the final year of his contract with the possibility of generating a Chandler Jones-type return in the trade market. The difference between Flowers and Jones, however, is that the Patriots may not see Flowers developing in the same way that Jones has with the Arizona Cardinals.

From Boston Sports Journal:

"The internal discussions on Flowers might very well be he's found his ceiling and he may not, as opposed to Mason, have his best football in front of him. The Patriots might be able to sell very high on him now, especially to a Bill Belichick-friendly coach/GM."

The Patriots can get three more years out of Samuel, who couldn't stay healthy and couldn't get enough touches in his rookie year. Samuel was a nice idea for the Panthers, but he's now going to be a fourth-string receiver (behind Devin Funchess, Torrey Smith and rookie D.J. Moore) and a second-string gadget player (behind Christian McCaffrey). They don't seem intent on engineering touches for Samuel. With so much offseason movement at receiver in New England, the Patriots could make good use of him immediately, including in the return game.

‘No-fun Patriots’ seem to be lightening up, perhaps to appease their disgruntled stars

  ‘No-fun Patriots’ seem to be lightening up, perhaps to appease their disgruntled stars Lane Johnson would be shocked to learn what the Patriots did this week as they wrapped up nine weeks of offseason workouts. On Monday, Bill Belichick canceled practice and instead held a team bonding experience at Fenway Park. On Tuesday, the Patriots returned to practice, but Belichick turned it into an opportunity to teach his players about football history, using props including leather helmets, I’m told.

Perhaps a scenario would be the 49ers trading away one of their three third-round picks (No. 11 in the round, acquired from Tennessee would be plausible) Like the previous slide, San Francisco has plenty of ammunition to make a number of trade scenarios possible. For the sake of this slide's topic

Most trades leading up to or during the NFL Draft (April 27-29) are for current or future draft NBA teams and the Patriots take a more enlightened approach to trading veterans. Here are five veteran players that NFL teams should seriously consider trading in the days leading up or during the NFL

It's tough for the Patriots to weaken an already-weak edge position. But perhaps they'll see enough promise in second-year players Deatrich Wise, Derek Rivers and Adam Butler to make up for the loss of Flowers.

4. Shaq Mason for Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell and a third-round pick

Another blockbuster involving Mason, because the guard is their most blatantly tradeable piece. He's so talented that he figures to play beyond the Patriots' price range. And they have depth at the position.

The Patriots recover a third-round pick, which is what they would surely be due if Mason departs in free agency through the compensatory pick formula. They also get to work with a young and talented receiver in Treadwell, who has so far been a bust with the Vikings.

Treadwell excelled in the SEC, which is a quality the Patriots tend to covet. In his final college season, he had good games against Alabama (5 receptions, 80 yards, touchdown) and Auburn (7 receptions, 114 yards, touchdown). Perhaps they'll turn on the film and see a player who they have two or three years to salvage, as Treadwell was a 2016 first-round pick with a fifth-year option in his contract.

5. Patriots trade Trey Flowers for Chargers linebacker Denzel Perryman and a third-round pick

The Chargers have two of the best defensive ends in the NFL, but don't have a third player in the rotation. Flowers is also outrageously good in the interior on third down, which would make the Chargers pass rush even more terrifying. Both Perryman and Flowers have expiring contracts, but the Patriots have a more realistic chance of inking Perryman.

Five-player blockbuster trade between Flames, Hurricanes adds spark to NHL draft weekend

  Five-player blockbuster trade between Flames, Hurricanes adds spark to NHL draft weekend The Hurricanes traded promising young players Noah Hanifin and Elias Lindholm to the Flames for Dougie Hamilton, Micheal Ferland and Adam Fox.Fans were hoping to see the Ottawa Senators deal Erik Karlsson. That didn't happen.

That scenario would give the Lakers three building blocks and a decent veteran starter to build around moving forward. Would the Pacers consider moving their franchise player for a younger potentially elite-level player? That might seem a bit ridiculous with just how important Paul George has been to

Scenario : Jerryd Bayless and Ed Davis for Serge Ibaka and Nate Robinson. Summary: The OKC Thunder love Ibaka and for good reason. This trade could also result in roughly million in extra cap space if you consider they will probably waive guard Josh Childress using the rumored amnesty

With Perryman's injury history, the Patriots would also be selling high on Flowers and buying low on the Chargers linebacker.

The Patriots' linebacker position has depth, but it doesn't have top-end talent. Perryman would be an immediate upgrade at outside linebacker with superior athleticism and, when healthy, production. Perryman would join a group of versatile linebackers who can play both inside and outside. He, Kyle Van Noy and Dont'a Hightower would likely be the group's starters.

The third-round pick helps sweeten the deal, as there is a sizable gap in talent between Flowers and Perryman.

It's Gronk at a wedding, what did you think was going to happen?
