Perhaps the most successful trade in the NFL in the last 10 years was last season’s Stefon Diggs trade, which saw the Vikings move an experienced player in order to open up cap space, and get younger at the position without a massive talent drop off. Could the Patriots do the same thing with Stephon Gilmore, who needs a new contract? As was made painfully obvious in the NFC Championship Game, the Packers need to get star cornerback Jaire Alexander a running mate on the other side of the formation, so they could be a likely trade partner. Send Gilmore to Green Bay, who can use him to capitalize on Aaron Rodgers’ closing window, and use the 29th pick to add a younger corner (Asante Samuel Jr.?) with four years of team control.
