With Tom Brady’s future in the air, New England is working trade lines to max out one more Super Bowl run

With the outside world speculating on Tom Brady’s motivations in 2020 and beyond, at least one thing in the immediate future appears to be clear for the New England Patriots: making this season’s Super Bowl run a priority heading into the trade deadline.

As franchises have spent this past week positioning themselves for a flurry of transactional activity heading into the 4 p.m. ET trade deadline on Tuesday, the Patriots have been actively refining their roster — flipping defensive end Michael Bennett to the Dallas Cowboys, positioning for a release of wideout Josh Gordon and sending a second-round pick to the Atlanta Falcons for receiver Mohamed Sanu.
