PFT Live: Patriots talk with Tom Curran, Eagles talk with Tim McManus


The Patriots and Eagles have made several trades with one another over the years, including a deal that sent defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga to the Patriots in exchange for a fifth-round pick last season.

Sopoaga is gone from New England now, but that pick came in handy for the Eagles when they dealt for running back Darren Sproles last week. On Thursday’s PFT Live, we’ll be checking in with both of the teams.

Tom Curran of CSN New England will join Mike Florio to talk about new arrivals in New England like wide receiver Brandon LaFell and cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner. They’ll also talk about defensive tackle Vince Wilfork’s future with the team and allegations from former Patriots Brandon Spikes and Aqib Talib about New England filing false injury reports.

Tim McManus of 97.5 The Fanatic will also be on hand to discuss the Eagles’ offseason machinations with Florio. The Sproles trade will be one topic as will the trade chatter that’s cropped up around wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

  1. Injury reports should be done by the team physician and confirmed by a league doctor with both facing the same penalties under law for filing a false medical report. Do that and the problem stops. OR

    Since the injury reports are really done because of gambling on the league, have a hockey-like version that says “lower body injury” or “upper body injury” with the likely/probable etc limiting a player to a certain number of snaps in the game.

  2. “Will Pats talk about fake injury reports?”

    You do realize that Spikes was playing through an injury for a while and almost had to get knee surgery after the season? He wasn’t healthy and given a false report, a healthy person does not talk about knee surgery. He put in the effort and was allowed to play while hurt, and when he stopped putting it in, they benched him so he would recover.

    As for Talib, love the guy but tell me why he didn’t come back from a hit in both the Denver game this past season and the Baltimore game the season before? If he never had any injury problems, why’d he limp off the field and never come back when he was needed? Mind you, both were close games till he got knocked out. Once he left, they were one sided.

    As for the “lower body injury” or “upper body injury”, would be nice. You never know if some people will target a certain part of the body on someone recovering from an injury.

  3. The patriots seem to lie and cheat a lot I think that they should be watched more closely in 2014-2015 season. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if they had several copies of other teams play books. Just my opinion though.
