Gimme him: Which Patriots player would you want in black and gold?
What could the New England Patriots offer the New Orleans Saints if we poached a player from their roster? Any player, on either side of the ball.
The opportunity to try out a different quarterback was too tempting for two of our staff writers, who are already eager to move on Jameis Winston after last week’s disappointing performance:
Kade Kistner: Mac Jones
Kistner: ‘Nuff said.
Maddy Hudak: Mac Jones
Hudak: After hearing how the Saints tried to trade up for Mac Jones, it’s pretty hard to ignore – in tandem with their attempt to specifically jump New England. I’m not sounding the alarm or throwing in the towel, but I have to go with their likely preferred choice at quarterback. Though not one would be successful under continuous poor offensive line play.
Sigler: Gosh, okay. I’m not convinced Jones or any other quarterback not named Drew Brees would have handled last week’s debacle any better than Winston. No one is going to be successful when pressured on half their dropbacks (not even Patrick Mahomes), so I’m going with one of the players responsible for Jones’ success: Patriots center David Andrews. The six-year veteran brings a combined 85 games of experience (including 11 playoff games, with three Super Bowl appearances) and proven excellence in pass protection to the table, which would do a lot to get the Saints offense back on schedule. The more time Winston has to stand clean in the pocket, the more time his receivers have to get open downfield.
