Patriots Talking Ryan Mallett Trade With Multiple Teams

Apr 25, 2013 12:05 PM

The New England Patriots have received calls from multiple teams inquiring about the availability of Ryan Mallett.

Mallett was a third round pick by the Patriots in 2011 and continues to backup Tom Brady at quarterback.

Jets Taking Trade Calls On Two First Rounders

Apr 24, 2013 5:44 PM

The New York Jets are taking calls from rival teams that are interested in moving up in the 2013 NFL Draft.

The Jets, who are rebuilding this offseason, would presumably be interested in converting one of their first round picks into additional assets.

"I think the real substantive talks will come tomorrow," said general manager John Idzik. "I think we're in a position at No. 9 and No. 13 in the first round to get two really good players, but it also opens up the gates for potential alternatives, potentially trading down and picking up more players. We'll be open minded about it. This is a very deep draft."

Idzik said the Jets' decision would be based on "the talent available when we pick."
