    No way Billy B is trading for a TE, it's just a position that no team ever trades for. This article is just speculation.

    Last season the Saints traded for Dave Thomas and the falcons traded for Tony Gonzo.

    Things to consider
    1.He's coming off a serious ankle injury, he'll most likely be fine but it's still something to think about
    2. Money considerations, contract length and the possibility of an extension
    3. Snyder, what does he want in return? IMO a 2nd and 4th is OK compensation, even in this draft. The pats have spent two 1st rounders on TEs and neither of them panned out (well Graham to his credit was a phenomenal edge blocker). I don't see how a 2nd and 4th for a proven player in his prime is too much to ask.
    4. Cooley is 6-3 250 (listed) so he's got it in the size dept, I live in DC when i'm not in college and i've seen Cooley play since he was a rookie, he's not all world blocking but if the Pats made this trade he'd be the H back-not a pure TE. 
    5. Need at the TE, spot-the Pats are absolutely empty there and I gotta think they'd have some serious concerns about drafting another TE high with the hope that he could start basically from day one. It's not like anyone on the roster/UFA are NFL caliber even for a short stretch of games, and all of the high ranked TEs in this draft have ? marks.
    6. It's ESPN, this report is pure speculation...

    Make sense, but doubt it will happen. Why? This years draft is loaded with good tight ends and some very high value TE's from small colleges that won't get drafted.

    They could get a younger, healthy Olsen for a #2 alone, and I don't think that happens either.  Guessing it will be a vet like Crumpler and trade a middish pick for a decent, but not great TE.  TE just isn't important in their offense unless it's for blocking.

    This years draft they can pick up a starting pass catching TE in the second or third round and a starting blocking TE in the fourth, fifth rounds and non drafted players like the kid from NH.  They'd be set at TE for years.

    In Response to Redskins could trade Chris Cooley to Patriots:
    Washington Redskins Could Trade Chris Cooley To New England by Adam Hankins Written on March 12, 2010 Jim McIsaac/Getty Images     Fred Davis emerged in 2009 as a legitimate threat as a pass-catching tight end. While he is not yet the polished route runner that Chris Cooley is, his upside potential may be greater than Cooley's.   Having both Davis and Cooley is a luxury for the Redskins, and they could become an excellent duo at the position. But with so many needs to fill, Washington can afford to sacrifice one of them.   Which one? The no-brainer would be Cooley. He's older at 27, and he is coming off of an ankle injury, but he still has a high trade value. Cooley is still capable of playing at a very high level.   Who would the Redskins trade Cooley to, and for what compensation? A good fit for a trade would be the New England Patriots. After recently losing Ben Watson, the Patriots have a glaring need at the tight end position.   The Patriots also have three second-round picks in the upcoming draft, giving them good currency for a trade. One second- and one fourth-round pick would be a good deal for Cooley, and since the Redskins currently only have five picks, they could put them to good use.   The Redskins' signing of Sean Ryan to be a blocking tight end is a good indication that a deal may be imminent. An NFL team needs one good pass-catching tight end and one that can block, and in Ryan and Davis, they have both. Cooley may be the odd man out.   With some extra high picks in the draft, the Redskins would be well positioned to rebuild their offensive line with an infusion of youthful talent. While it would sadden many Redskins fans to see one of their favorites traded away, Mike Shanahan needs to make some hard decisions to ensure a brighter future for Washington.

    Re: Redskins could trade Chris Cooley to Patriots

    some of you guys value draft picks waaaaay too much.  why wouldn't you want to trade a 2nd round pick for someone that you "KNOW" is one of the best tight ends in the league, you would rather take that 2nd round pick and draft lets say Jermaine Gresham and "HOPE" he is ever half as good as Chris Cooley is right now.   The same stupid logic where people are saying they would not give up a   1st round pick for Brandon Marshall.  Instead you would rather draft someone like Dez Bryant, and hope he turns into one of the top 5 recievers in the league, when you can trade for that guy who already is proven.

    Not that I have any objection at all but....They'd have to actually use the TE.  They didn't even fully utilize Watson in 2006 when they had Reche Caldwell as the #1 WR
