Both the Bruins and Celtics play this evening at 7 p.m. The Bruins are in Philadelphia to face the Flyers, while the Celtics are in Indiana to play the Pacers.
The Patriots are reportedly looking to make a trade: Though Tom Brady is clearly the focal point of the coverage of the Patriots’ offseason, there is obviously much more to the team’s roster building than simply the quarterback position.
And Brady is still tied to the possible transactions at other positions too, since New England could help its chances of getting the 42-year-old back for another season should new pieces be added to the offense.
With that in mind, Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer noted in his recent column that the Patriots are keeping an eye on the trade market for a skill position addition.
“I’ve heard the Patriots have been sniffing around the trade market for receivers and tight ends—which isn’t hugely unusual but is noteworthy given Brady’s desire to play with a better supporting cast than he had in 2019,” wrote Breer.
Exactly who the Patriots are pursuing remains a mystery, though Breer did offer a few possibilities, including Robert Woods of the Rams and Cameron Brate of the Buccaneers.
Free agency begins at the start of the new league year, March 18.
