Report: Patriots “expected to entertain” offers for Ryan Mallett

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, via Evan Silva, the New England Patriots are “expected to entertain” trade offers for quarterback Ryan Mallett.

Now that the Patriots have locked in Tom Brady for the next five years, Rapoport believes they will shop Mallett.

“I think it means he’s gonna be traded,” said Rapoport, per

Mallett has shown nothing in his short NFL career.  I can’t imagine any team willing to give up much for him.

The Patriots are reportedly looking for a second or third round pick.

Update: Per the Boston Herald, the Patriots aren’t shopping Mallett right now.
