Branch, Moss & Maroney. What we gave. What we got.


Wrapping up the Maroney + Moss + Branch deals so we can see exactly what the New England Patriots got:

On Sept. 14 we traded Laurence Maroney and a 6th round 2011 pick to the Denver Broncos for a 4th round 2011 pick.

On Oct 6 we traded Randy Moss and a 7th round 2011 pick to the Minnesota Vikings for a 3rd round 2011 pick.

On Oct  12 we traded a 4th round 2011 pick (i.e. Denver's) to the Seattle Seahawks for Deon Branch.

What we got and what we gave and a poll after the jump.

The net results:

We gave up:

Laurency Maroney (contract year, so 17+ games, assuming we make playoffs).

Randy Moss(contract year, 13+ games)

6th round 2011 pick.

7th round 2011 pick.

Likely 5th round 2012 compensation pick for Moss.

Another 2012 compensation pick for Maroney (also a 5th?).

 

We got:

Deion Branch (2years remaining on contract, $5M+ per year).

Minnesota's 3rd round 2011 pick.
