Even though the Patriots are off this week they are garnering a decent amount of attention for making a move at the trade deadline on Thursday afternoon.
The Pats acquired cornerback Aqib Talib from Tampa Bay for a fourth-round pick in 2013. The Buccaneers sent their seventh-round pick to the Patriots along with Talib.
Former Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe joined Gresh, Zo and Dan Shaughnessy to discuss the Talib acquisition, what the secondary could look like moving forward and the bye week.
What does Bledsoe think of the Pats adding a player like Talib to their roster?
“Looks like he’s a talented guy that has a lot of ability that’s had some trouble off the field and I’m certain that what it’ll be is a situation where he either comes in and becomes part of the program and becomes a productive player or he’s probably not a part of the team for very long.”
The guys wonder how the Pats will use Talib with the players they have on defense now.
Plus they discuss playing teams within the division after the bye. The Pats have yet to play Miami yet this season, but have played the other two teams in the division. Is it important to change things up when you play these divisional teams the second time around.
