Yeah, people say this is stupid - 'why trade a potential HoF tight end who's 24?' Because the offensive side of the ball is far deeper than the defensive and after years (a decade now) of not having a SB caliber defense, it's time to tack a different approach. Deal from your strength to address a weakness. Look at today's game, once Talib went out, the Pats became Patsies. The offense struggled with a physical Baltimore D, but the real problem was that Flacco ran off 21 points with little resistance. Trade Gronk, get a corner, a pass rusher and a draft pick. Get a deep wide out with the draft pick.
