I have serious doubts the Pats got the worst of this deal.

Mankins has always been overrated IMO.

This saves a ton of money the next couple of years for the Pats as well. Gives them a ton of flexibility.

Wright is an interesting player who I'm sure they'll use much like Hernandez.

This move also frees up some cap space for the cheats. I think even if Wright only pans out as average this trade was better for the cheats. Dump a huge cap hit of an aging OG Mankins (highest paid guard in NFL) for a young upstart TE with good potential and (allegedly) a 4th RND draft choice in 2015 certainly ain't the worst deal I've ever seen the cheats do.

Pats win almost every deal when you look at long term value/contracts, etc. It's why they win their division every year. That said, at some point extending that window compromises their ability to win in the moment.

I guess it depends on what you want.

I'm sure Wright will turn into Gronk 2 and Mankins will catch Ebola in the Bucs locker room

Seems like the general feeling in Patsy land is "WTF?" at the moment though

THey take a 12M cap hit as all of his bonus hits their books now.

Oh you mean like that Richard Seymour trade? That sure turned out well for them. The D hasnt been the same since.

That's a pretty good sign since Pats fans are the most aggressively stupid fan base I've ever seen.

Bills, Jets, Dolphins...That's the reason the Pats win their division every year. :lol:

Their issues on D have largely been due to a porous secondary. Seymour didn't do much while in Oakland, and they got Nate Solder with the draft pick from that trade. I'd say the Pats made out pretty well.
