sorry but your premise wasnt about "scale and risk". it was about moss disrupting the locker room chemistry of the pats and not giving 100%. but feel free to change your tune.
r. moss > c. rogers or gabriel, caldwell, jackson etc.
how'd that trade work out for the seahawks? they wouldve been better off trading for moss. but then again their mgmt has had a few off season blunders:
not franchising hutchinson
overpaying for burleson
overpaying for branch
anyways the whole premise of this thread is the pats need for a deep threat. one you implied wasnt there. looks like pats management proved you wrong and me right by bringing in rogers. whats new? the best deep threat available is r. moss. the best player who could have the biggest impact in the pats offense is r. moss. the team who has the most to offer is the pats.
i'll just put this lesson on your tab.
It is, however, my opinion they would not trade for him, and certainly not at the short sighted over zealous trade value you assign him.
you dont really think one of the best receivers in the game (and possibly all time) would come cheaper than deion branch did you? lol.
