The Patriots traded former first round pick Laurence Maroney to the Denver Broncos along with a sixth round pick in exchange for a fourth round pick in next year’s draft. This brings to an end, a strange, disappointing, and at times interesting run in Foxborough for Maroney.
Randy Moss told everyone who would listen yesterday that he wants to remain in New England, and that he won’t be talking further about his contract. Let’s hope he sticks to his word.
The Patriots are getting ready for the New York Jets this Sunday, but yesterday, the media wasn’t too interested in talking to Bill Belichick about the game. In his conference call yesterday morning, a grand total of TWO questions were asked of the coach.

They could’ve participated in the Belichick conference call.
