So banks, you all rolling with Hoyer next year?

Absolutely. He knows the lay of the land and comes on the cheap.

I'm pretty sure BB went after him so Brady couldn't bring him to Tampa Bay.

Or once a Patriot always a Patriot.

This is his 3rd time around.

He was 10 - 6 as a Browns QB. Which is astonishing.

Of course this included the big choke game vs Luck and the Colts in '14.

Pretty good team that year, led by a stout defense.  Too little offfense (12 TD vs 13 picks) though.  Then Hoyer had to bow out, leaving things unfinished.

You know your NFL career is not going to head the way you hoped when after Tom Brady leaves the Patriots, they still release you.

Robert Kraft sends Pats plane to China to pick-up N-95 masks

https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/04/02/nation/kraft-family-used-patriots-team-plane-shuttle-protective-masks-china-boston-wsj-reports/

In an extraordinary move, the Kraft family deployed the New England Patriots team plane to China to fetch more than one million desperately-needed N95 respirator masks used by front-line health care workers to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus, Governor Charlie Baker announced Thursday morning.

Robert Kraft personally purchased 300,000 N95 masks that he plans to provide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, whose state is an epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic.

So...

big decisions looming for G-men and Dolphins, among others

NFL Network mock has Simmons falling to TEN, a steal for Browns.

If Giants agree they could deal down to 7, 8 or 9 and get Simmons while adding to their allotment of picks.

Is anyone dealing up for Tua, Herbert, the Iowa tackle or one of the many DBs or WR options - which do come in tiers?

Should Giants do this and LOSE the Iowa tackle AND Simmons, there are still excellent picks to make at the slot they traded down to.

Cant go wrong staying put and selecting one of that duo, true.

Mock draft has Giants trading down just one spot and picking up a 2nd rounder and a future 4th. 
Taking a RT and a OC with their first two picks.

Cool.

Why would Miami go from 5 to 4?  Aren't they taking a QB?

Maurice Jones-Drew has Giants moving up for Chase Young after Chargers trade up to the #2 slot for Tua.

edit:  Oh, I see - Miami moves up so Chargers cannot - bidding war LAC and Miami. Could happen.

I think it's more likely they trade down than up but i won't complain either way.
I think standing pat would be poor mgmt.  Leverage these QB hungry teams.

The only way we do not take an LT. If Simmons is available, we take him and see what is needed to get 9ne of the second tier LT prospect and sign, say, Jason Peters.for a year.

Depends how much better you think, say, Wirfs is than the next best prospect. If he is your guy, you cannot.trade.far down and let Arizona or Cleveland jump you.

Trading down one or at most two spots, acquire more draft picks, and still get your choice of Wirfs Wills or Bechton.  Seems like a no-lose situation.

Dont forget Thomas. But.you are talking about the OL prospects as being roughly equal. Again, if your talent evaluation has one of them much better than the other three, you do not want to lose him for a 2 or 3.
