Patriots Notes: Williams, Wynn, Brady

Trent Williams to the Patriots? Field Yates of ESPN.com (on Twitter) says Pats fans shouldn’t hold their breath. As Yates notes, the Redskins tackle seemed like a fit just a couple of weeks ago, but left tackle Isaiah Wynn is progressing in his recovery and Dan Skipper is getting significant reps in the interim. Meanwhile, as ESPN.com’s Mike Reiss (on Twitter) points out, Cole Croston is also back in the mix.

While you contemplate Williams’ next destination, here’s more from New England:

  • More from Reiss, who breaks down Wynn’s road to recovery from a torn Achilles suffered one year ago. He also touches on Skipper, who offers prototypical size at 6’9″, 310 pounds.
  • The Patriots sent a conditional 2020 seventh-round pick to the Falcons (originally from the Eagles) in the Eric Saubert trade, Howard Balzer tweets. It’s an extremely low-cost deal for the Pats, who might have found a new blocking tight end to fortify their group.
  • Superstar quarterback Tom Brady is still looking to play until the age of 45.

    Williams to the Pats doesn’t seem like a move they do. They did just fine last year w/ a LT that was traded for a 6th round pick. And much cheaper than Williams.

    Maybe just maybe they can trade for some receivers…… cause who ever is doing the drafting is blind to the fact that the skins recievers suck big time… and that is an understatement

    Eric Saubert and blocking should never be used in the same sentence!! If he was any kind of blocker the Falcons wouldn’t have gotten rid of him. He’s a glorified WR masquerading as a TE. But it’s because of his receiving skills and the way the Patriots used guys like Aaron Hernandez in the past, that I think Saubert will be able to make a positive impact on the Patriots offense. But dude is a horrific blocker.
