NFL Network’s Bert Breer joined Gresh & Zo to talk about the Patriots trade possibilities on the day of the NFL trade deadline.

With an obvious need at wide receiver, it’s rumored that Josh Gordon of the Cleveland Browns and Kenny Britt of the Tennessee Titans are available. However, Gresh wants “nothing to do with Kenny Britt.”
Bert doesn’t think there will be a ton of action today, but added, “It’ll be interesting to see what happens when we get closer to the deadline though. It’s exactly what Bill [Belichick] has said: ‘Deadlines spur action’. A lot of this stuff won’t get consummated until right near the wire.”READ MORE: Massachusetts Unemployment Rate Up To 5.2%, Slightly Higher Than National Average
