Jason Smith: “What are the odds that teams refuse to trade with the Patriots? If the Patriots try and move up to get Tua Tagovailoa, I wonder if teams are going to say ‘yeah, NO. We’re not going to trade with you because I’m not going to let you restart your dynasty. You have beaten up on us for 20 years, and get into the Super Bowl every other year. I don’t want to worry about going through you again and I’m not going to give you a franchise quarterback with the best coach in the NFL’… If Matt Patricia does it with his former team he would be considered the scourge of the NFL… Really, I wonder how many teams are going to say ‘We’re NOT trading with the Patriots just because I’m not going to be responsible for giving you a quarterback for the next 10-15 years that could allow you to continue to run your dynasty.'” (Full Audio Above)
