Marker Chris Mortensen: Did Patriots trade Bledsoe to weaken Dolphins and Jets? [9:10 PM]
ESPN reports: I think the Patriots dragged their feet on the deal, hoping they would not have to trade him inside the AFC East. The Pats struggled with the Bills in two victories last season (12-9 OT in Week 14). Certainly, Bill Belichick has confidence he has a handle on Bledsoe, but that would put Bledsoe in good company with just about any QB who has to face Belichick's defensive schemes. Bottom line: I think the Pats made the Bills a very interesting team in 2002.

Marker Don Banks: New faces in new places [11:43 PM]
CNN/SI reports: Drew Bledsoe, Buffalo: It still feels bizarre to even write the word Buffalo following Bledsoe's name, but we all better get used to it, because the Bills and him are married to each other for a while. But what a honeymoon it has been. Bledsoe got the rock star treatment in upstate NY this spring, and I for one think he deserved a nice break after handling the events of 2001 in New England with about as much dignity as anyone could have mustered. I'm not certain that Bledsoe remains among the NFL's elite QBs, but I think he has found himself an up-and-coming team and I'm convinced that he'll be infused with a motivation this season that hasn't been part of his game for several years. What do you bet that Bledsoe goes to bed every night counting down the days until those two late-season showdowns with New England?
