“There is 0% chance Marshawn Lynch is going to wear a Patriot uniform this year, but there is a 100% chance you can throw this story out there and get a few people to click on the story.”
Any non-Draft story related to the NFL in April is expectedly pretty irrelevant, but Ben Maller wants the media to stop running with the ‘Marshawn-to-New England’ rumor, saying that a guy simply saying he would be open to play for the NFL’s most successful franchise isn’t really headline news, but common sense.
“You can argue that any NFL player has privately expressed interest in playing for the Patriots – Why? Well, first of all why would you not if you’re goal is to try and win?” Maller said. “I could say that Odell Beckham has privately expressed interest in playing for the Patriots; I’m not wrong, I’m assuming Beckham would love to play for the Patriots.”
