Mallett Deal Paving Way For Glennon Trade?May 8th, 2014
Patriots beat writer Tom Curran is bringing word this evening that New England backup quarterback Ryan Mallett, who many view as potential starter material, is likely to be sent to Houston to reunite with Texans coach Bill O’Brien.
Mallett, 25, is in the final year of his four year rookie contract, and Bill Belicheat likely wants to get something for Mallett and groom a new backup for Tom Brady. Is that backup Mike Glennon?
Considering Belicheat and Greg Schiano are scary close, and Schiano touted Glennon as a “future star” with a “grinder” of a work ethic this week on NFL Network, one would think Belicheat might be ready to deal with his former personnel sidekick in New England, Bucs general manager Jason Licht.
Hey Jason, if you can get a third-rounder now, make the deal! Mallett was a third round pick of the Pats in 2011.
