According to the Boston Globe, the New England Patriots are still looking to trade quarterback Ryan Mallett. Multiple teams have called the Patriots this week about a potential trade for backup quarterback Ryan Mallett, according to three league sources. The belief is that the odds are that Mallett gets traded. Whether the Patriots will trade the 2011 third-round pick is the question. But all three sources said the odds are slightly stronger that Mallett is dealt than kept by the Patriots. The Patriots have been heavily scouting quarterbacks in the leadup to the draft, and could very well select one during the draft. New England is still looking for more than a 3rd round pick. The Patriots would like more than a third-round pick after developing Mallett for two years. It’s likely a second this season or a first in ’14 would close the deal. With this draft not having any quarterbacks  that really stand out, I think there’s a good chance a team may want to roll the dice and trade for Mallett. The big question is, will anyone be willing to give up a second round pick for an unproven quarterback.   Need NFL Tickets?
