    You can't fix the fact that the WR you traded for has a contract expiring and will likely want big money and a big city.
    I don't necessarily agree, because Gilmore was pretty much the same type of player (i.e. very inconsistent) which is also why I was surprised the Pats signed him and for the type of money he got.

    Not saying Darby is a finished product by any means, but he was terrible last year despite having a very good rookie season. Problem was nothing changed for him playing in the same defense under Rex Ryan in 2015 - 2016 and he still struggled big time when he should have improved.

    Gilmore wasn't nearly as bad as people on here made him out to be.

    And Darby was not terrible last year.

    Gaines was terrible last year lol.

    You are correct. Note that Gaines was very good his rookie year. Full disclosure - I liked Darby as a player. sad to see him go.
