Agent says Patriots considered trading up to No. 2 for Baker Mayfield

Baker Mayfield went to the Browns with the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft. But Mayfield’s agent says that if the Browns had chosen someone else, a massive trade that would have shaken up the entire NFL could have happened: The Patriots trading all the way up to No. 2 and taking Mayfield as Tom Brady‘s heir apparent.

Jack Mills, the agent for Mayfield, said on Andrew Brandt’s podcast that there was a real chance that the Patriots could have traded with the Giants for the second overall pick, and that the Patriots would have selected Mayfield.

“We had another team which is going to surprise you. Another team had said, ‘You may get a big surprise on draft day, at No. 2, if he’s available.’ And it was the Patriots,” Mills said. “They had 23 and they had 31 and they had two seconds. We thought, ‘That’s gonna be a heck of a move, to get up that high from where they are.’ And of course he wasn’t available so we never knew if that was reality or not.”

There was talk before the draft of the Patriots trading up for a quarterback, but trading all the way up to No. 2 would have been incredibly hard to pull off. Given that Giants General Manager Dave Gettleman scoffed at trading down from No. 2, he surely would have demanded even more than the Patriots’ two first-round picks and two second-round picks. Would Bill Belichick, who has traditionally preferred trading down over trading up, really have pulled the trigger on a trade like that?

Then there’s the question of how Brady would have reacted: He’s already refusing to say if he feels the Patriots appreciate him. How would he feel if the Patriots used a bounty of draft picks to take the next franchise quarterback, rather than using those picks on players who can help Brady win another Super Bowl this season?

We’ll never know for sure what would have happened if the Browns had chosen someone other than Mayfield. But it’s crazy to think about the fallout if he had ended up in New England.

  1. Was his agent a gossip columnist in his previous job? Why would he even mention this.

  2. that’s why the pat’s were creating a smokescreen bringing in and talking up lamar jaackson…no one fell for that !!!!

  3. that’s why the pat’s were creating a smokescreen bringing in and talking up lamar jaackson…no one fell for that !!!Oh Billy !!

  4. Let’s follow the logic here. Reports are the Giants wouldn’t take the Bills two first round picks, which were both significantly higher than the Patriots first rounders. Plus the Bills two second rounders. But he would have been cool sliding all the way back from 2 to 23 in a deal with the Patriots. When the Giants were clearly infatuated with Saquon Barkley.

    But it’s the Patriots so let’s all just pretend they can do whatever they want.

  5. Spoken like a true agent. Your client doesn’t need this kind of sales puffery anymore. It will only prove to be annoying and make enemies. He’s a great QB and he was selected #1 overall.

    no they didn’t.
    JUST STOP. it’s over.

    Why because it is easier to assume they weren’t going to because the Browns picked him up, so it must be a mistake? Time to change the narrative – or find new material. Mayfield on the field was the best statistical QB in the draft, and feedback on his leadership in the huddle and locker room was pretty darned good. Wouldn’t surprise me if BB saw this (he’s pretty smart, you know) but I also doubt they either had or were willing to part with the draft capital needed to do it. That I am not sure would have been worth it.

  7. We wouldn’t have these rumors if we traded the right QB last year. Instead because of politics, we ended up trading the future.

  8. “Hey, can you start circulating a rumor that the franchise with the longest current dynasty wanted to trade up to #2 if your client (Baker) was available? Our fans don’t seem too pleased with taking him #1.”

    -Browns Front Office

  9. Sorry, not buying it. This was a rumor, but I get the impression it’s done by the Browns to justify or support their questionable pick.

    There is no way Mayfield is Patriot material.

    No way.

    And, NE didn’t like these QBs in this draft. Obviously. They also didn’t love the defensive players in this draft.

  10. I’m a Browns fan. Mayfield was the qb I wanted and I couldn’t be happier. I don’t know if this story is true or not. I just hope they give Mayfield the time he needs to get the playbook down and the speed of the nfl down. Then give them hell! GO BROWNS!

    Umm, the Ravens absolutely fell for it. No way the Pats were ever taking Jackson either. A 13 on the Wonderlic is in no way Patriot material.

    The kid is going to get hurt running as much as he did at the NCAA level, too.

    Hilarious how people can lie and the media runs with it.

  12. What were they going to do, trade both 1s and both 2s from this year, along with their 2019 and 2020 1? They didn’t have the ammo to get to 2, never would have happened.

    There’s no doubt that the Patriots were enamored with Mayfield. It possible that they could have moved up to #4 if he fell there. But the cost to move to #2 would have been exorbitant. It would have to include a mix of picks and players that the Giants coveted.

    This whole manufactured scenario where Brady is unable to cope with a competent backup borders on insanity. How did he put up with an NFL ready to start, Jimmy Garopollo, for three years without engaging in sideline fisticuffs every Sunday?

    Whether Brady likes it or not, the chances of the Patriots drafting a QB very early in next year’s draft are about 99.9%.
    .

  15. It makes sense.

    Several local teams media are reporting that most QB hungry teams had Mayfield as the overall #1 QB in the draft with no one else even being close. Basically the other QB’s not named Darnold didn’t “fall out of the top five” they were never seen as top 5 picks in the first place outside of the media hyping them.

    So if Cleveland doesn’t pick the #1 QB they would have gone the #1 overall player which would have been Barkley. Obviously the Giants waiting till later for a QB shows they didn’t value any of the ones available to them at #2 so unless they were in the Chubb market or they wanted Mayfield themselves they probably would have been open for business to trade down.

    We’ll never know if it’s true unless someone asks Belichick but it’s definitely something that would have made sense.

  16. Let the BS begin. The Pats don’t make trades like that. The only way that was happening is if Belicheat stroked out and was laying in the hospital in a coma.

  17. Wow the Browns and Mayfield’s team are pulling out all the tricks to make his pick at #1 look brilliant and destined, whether it’s detailing anecdotes on why the Browns specifically didn’t choose another QB (some feeling related to the UCLA volleyball team at an airport??) or this ridiculous story. Feels a bit like the lady doth protest too much…

    But it’s the Patriots so let’s all just pretend they can do whatever they want.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I dunno, Joe… when I read “a massive trade that would have shaken up the entire NFL could have happened” I assume it would have been a multi-team deal. Not that I have any evidence of such but that’s the way I read it.

    I don’t think the agent has any reason to lie here. The draft is over and Mayfield’s money is dictated by the CBA.

  19. There will always be those that scoff at the Patriots for trading Jimmy G for only a second rounder. Probably the same ones that said he was only worth a 5th rounder before the trade. But the question really is – where would they find the cap room until Brady calls it quits? Franchise him at $22-23 mil? Jimmy declined a bridge contract, which was a really smart business decision.

  20. Oh please. For weeks before the draft you were insisting the Pats would trade up for Lamar Jackson I think it was, or taking him if he was available at 23.

    They were never trading up. This is all manufactured fecal matter.

  21. I do not know how these things work so far be it for me to question it.

    But I do know that teams are so super-secret with these things. So my question, is why would Belicheck tell Mayfield’s agent (or any other agent) “hey… if your guy is there, we’re going to trade the farm to pick him.” I can totally see the team saying “we really like him and we’ll do what we can” but to lay out that if the player is there at a certain spot, we’ll trade up to get him just does not make a lot of sense.

  22. The Bills got the best arm in the draft & the best LB, no chance of the Pats getting to #2.

  23. Hahahahahahaha… Coming from his agent… Yeah, I buy that alright:)) Well, you got your name out Jackie boy. Congrats on your publicity and 5 minutes of fame… Your client is the #1 pick in the draft, shut up already…

  24. Lol….. let’s make up a story that was NEVER going to happen now that the draft is over…..
    BRILLIANT!!!! Lol
    Brady is going to be getting ANOTHER 2-3 year contract extension probably by mid season at the latest…..Pats filled all kinds of needs with tools to keep Brady & the TEAM COMPETATIVE FOR YEARS…& built a killer draft for next year….I’m just sitting back & LAUGHING at all these foolish click-bate stories coming out……
    THE PATRIOTS ARE STILL UBER RELEVANT… DILLY DILLY!!!!

  25. With all of their stockpiled picks, NE can likely trade up for a QB next year, should they feel the need; and next year, they probably will feel the need.

  26. “But instead I sent my client off to the QB graveyard known as Cleveland. He might be shattered into pieces already, and that’s before they replace their retired HOF left tackle with a billy goat. Who knows? The important thing is my commission check cleared.”

  27. No chance Belichick uses up so many picks when they expect Brady will play 3 or 4 more yrs. And you can see that Belichick used this year to set up a bumper draft of 12 picks (many high) for 2019 and I think they’ve already got eyes on someone.

    Meanwhile, they actually like Etling – he improved a lot under Cam Cameron, and under Brady’s coach, only throwing 2 ints to 16 tds last season and showed further mechanical improvements in trials this spring. That’s why they picked him – he’s responded well to their coaching style.

  28. Why would they have drafted Mayfield? They would have groomed him and Brady would have made Kraft trade Baker for peanuts. Wash, rinse, repeat.

  29. Right, like the Patriots were seriously telling this agent their draft plans. And you know Belichick, he is a dude that wouldn’t hesitate to combine ALL of his first few rounds picks for a QB.

  30. I don’t see BB as being the type to burn what it would take to go from 31 to 2 for a QB he can’t play until the owner/Brady says it’s ok to play.

    Just not going to happen and it calls into question the credibility of the source.

  31. …. OR MAYBE Mayfield’s agent is just blowing smoke to justify Mayfield being taken at number one in the face of lots of critics weighing in on the Brown’s decision. That’s his job as an agent. Are we supposed to believe someone from the Patriots called to tell him that they’d trade up if he slipped past the Browns? That would make no sense.

  32. He has the accuracy and quick release that the Pats covet so I could see the flirtation of discussing how high do we want to go if he starts to fall.

  33. So, if Pats wanted him they are geniuses. But Browns took him first, and they are idiots. Got it.

  34. Yea and Seattle drafted a RB only to have a mystery team offer a trade to get the prospect.
    Agents,GM’s, Agents, GM’s,Agents how can you believe anything they say?

  35. “Another team had said, ‘You may get a big surprise on draft day, at No. 2, if he’s available.’ And it was the Patriots,” ……..And of course he wasn’t available so we never knew if that was reality or not.”

    ——

    So, did the Pats actually tell them they wanted to do this or not?

  36. So this story is true because the draft is already over. There is no reason for his agent to puff up his client, he was taken # 1. It would be like saying pick up lines to a girl that.. (you know where I’m going with this already so I’ll keep it clean)

  37. Man that would have been so delicious if they did that. Tom Brady openly weeping.

    But I dont believe this. Even if it was true, why would the agent say anything about it now? Could alienate him from Bill Belichek. I mean, we’ve seen what BB will do once you’re on his bad side. He will potentially sacrifice a SB just to put you in your place. Imagine what he would do to an agent. Send him to Siberia? He’s got the resources!

  38. Well, the Patriots picked the QB at 219th, seventh round ; worse than 199- 6th round. He’ll win 7SBs and play till he’s 50 years old. There.

  39. Belicheck did it knowing it would not happen so that the agent would release the information to the media to fire a shot across the bow at Brady, who has been making a stink in the media. Pure genius. He’s playing chess while Brady’s playing tick tack toe.

  40. We wouldn’t have these rumors if we traded the right QB last year. Instead because of politics, we ended up trading the future

    I was kinda thinking the same thing. they had the guy and traded him. I realize he wanted to start, but they could have worked out a deal and kept the two at least last year. But they trade him, then trade at least 4-5 picks this year to move up and take a guy? Why would they have not just kept the guy they had…
    and Mayfield is very polarizing. I dont think hes a bad guy but doesnt seem like a NE guy whereas JImmy was…lol damn off season

  41. Yeah right another totally made up story.

    1. I highly doubt Belicheck would be willing to trade off all those future draft picks it would take to move up in to the number 2 spot when Brady has yet to show a sign of decline. Belicheck wants to win it’s as simple as that.

    2. Giants had multiple offers to trade out of the number 2 spot and declined them all. So how would Belicheck get that number 2 pick.

    It seems like this year has the most made up draft news ever.

  42. I don’t get the Patriots draft when it comes to QBs. The only way I can make sense of it is that they 1) want to appease Brady and 2) have a specific timeline for choosing their next important QB, say a year or two down the road.

    Those things make sense. Otherwise, they seem to have missed some great options that were there for the taking (Rudolph, Lauletta, Falk) and wouldn’t have disrupted their overall draft.

  43. This story is just that… a STORY.

    But let’s abandon all rationality for a second and pretend it’s true. If the Patriots were willing to mortgage the farm to move up to #2, why wouldn’t they have just tried to trade for #1? The Giants had said they weren’t moving off their spot, so why wouldn’t Cleveland have been more likely a trade partner? They would have still had the #4 pick for a QB, and the #23 and #31 from the Pats along with couple additional 2nd rounders, which coupled with their own picks would have given them infinite possibilities.

    Florio himself said in the days leading up to the draft that he felt if the Patriots were going to trade up, nobody would know about it until that team was on the clock. If that’s true, how did another GM know about it and relay it to Mayfield’s agent? This whole thing makes zero sense.

    There is not only doubt, outside of them doing their due diligence, no way on god’s green earth was Mayfield as “trade up” quality mainly because it simply didn’t happen.

    Cleveland had 2 picks at 1 and 4, so they could have easily traded back if NE’s demand was there, and STILL gotten a QB they liked at 4.

    This is more media garbage. It’s pretty obvious NE was not sold on ANY of the QBs they interviewed and worked out.

    They all came off less than how JimmyG was presented during his workout/interview.

    That’s what this is about….Who is the next JimmyG on paper and how that player does project in NE”s system.

    Jackson is the same thing….I am sure they liked him in some ways, but that 13 Wonderlic ain’t cutting in the Pats system.

    Nope. Hint: This story is manufactured and not real.

  46. “He will potentially sacrifice a SB just to put you in your place. ”

    Unlike you, Belichick is a lifetime professional and perhaps the most knowledgable football historian alive. He would never throw away a Super Bowl for the kind of childish reason you are claiming. Winning that Super Bowl cements his legacy as the greatest coach ever in NFL history, and as probably the foremost historian of the game today would appreciate what that win would have meant more than anyone.

  47. Bellicheck would’ve traded the number 2 pick if he had it, even if Saquan Barkley is there for him.

    Nobody except for the Ravens who traded up to get him after NE already passed on him TWICE.

  49. Why wouldn’t they sell the farm for Mayfield? He said “Hee Hee “ and then his wide receivers said “Hee Hee”. No brainer

  50. I just don’t see it in Mayfield, especially the Brees comparison.

    Brees was going to be an NFL QB. Didn’t think at the time that he’d throw for more yards and tds than Brett Favre or Dan Marino. But it was pretty clear he could sling it, and very well at that.

    I just don’t see that in Mayfield. He throws a wobbly Peyton Manning ball, and I’m not convinced he can make all the throws.

  51. This sounds more like gamesmanship by the Pats than a real possibility that was on the table. Feigning interest to get another team (like the Jets or Bills) to offer even more would be more their style than to fork over not only a boatload of picks, but also cap space to a rookie doesn’t make any sense. They might as well have franchised Garappolo and kept the picks they would have had to give up at that point.

  52. The agent sounds like he’s embellishing to give Mayfield more stock. It won’t work just like it didn’t work with Lamar Jackson.

  53. Patriots took Etling…..

    so; who do we think right now is gonna have the better NFL career, Mayfield or Etling ?

    Every single lie or myth about the Pats makes zero sense. People just can’t handle they are the greatest sports dynasty ever because it’s being done in the cap era.

  56. All those cold, dispassionate decisions over the years and they couldn’t make the one that mattered most, Garoppolo over Brady.It wouldn’t surprise me Belichick wanted to make that move and it was vetoed by Kraft. Add to that the benching of Malcolm Butler in the SB ,reminiscent of the Cleveland Browns version of Belichick yanking Mike Tomczak from the Vikings game to prove a point,all evidence that the dynasty is dying if not yet completely dead.

  57. Every single lie or myth about the Pats makes zero sense.

He got the dumbest franchise in the league to draft him #1. No need to keep spit shining this.

    Too bad things like the record books and physics and court documents show otherwise. And Brady’s record against the AFC East compared to vs. the rest of the NFL is almost identical and that’s with the a 1st place schedule almost every year. Too bad.

  65. Im not buying this. The trade value chart puts the required trade at #23, #31, #41, #63, and a 2019 first for The Giants pick #2. The Browns would have also been getting a good value taking that trade at #1 (which is part of what makes me not believe it).

    Thats 3 firsts and 2 seconds for a QB that is not one of the best prospects to come out in a while. BB would have to have disagreed with that notion and felt he was the “best prospect” ever. That’s an insane amount of capital.

    There will always be those that scoff at the Patriots for trading Jimmy G for only a second rounder. Probably the same ones that said he was only worth a 5th rounder before the trade. But the question really is – where would they find the cap room until Brady calls it quits? Franchise him at $22-23 mil? Jimmy declined a bridge contract, which was a really smart business decision.

    It’s not about what they received for Jimmy G, it’s the bogus drama the media created. NE couldn’t keep Jimmy G after they extended Brady Feb 2016. So, the fake turmoil in 2017 is just typical talk about NE to get clicks. Fans and media in their fantasies can always get a haul for players.

  69. Every single lie or myth about the Pats makes zero sense. People just can’t handle they are the greatest sports dynasty ever because it’s being done in the cap era.

    The reason for all the fake stories. The people writing these articles you’d think would know better. NE looks for strong minded people because they know it’s a grind. The personnel guy even said it in his pressers. Butler didn’t whine like the media has.

    We wouldn’t have these rumors if we traded the right QB last year. Instead because of politics, we ended up trading the future.

    It wasn’t politics. It was the situation after extending Brady in 2016.

  71. Maybe, just maybe, real NFLers were mostly in agreement that Mayfield was the best choice of the four, and media just missed it because:
    (a) Measurables
    (b) Lazy Mayfield = Manziel story line
    (c) A desire for this to have been a four horse race because it generated more to talk about pre-draft.

    All in all, the after-the-fact surprise from the media, coupled with the football people from other teams now predominantly coming up pro-Mayfield is giving me deja vu feeling. Reminds me of a different, uh, sport, about 18 months ago where the talking heads all came out wrong and couldn’t figure out why.

  72. Insert Browns and Patriots in the same sentence. Sprinkle a bit of Mayfield…troll game level 1000. I tip my hat to you sir.

  73. As much as I would love to see the Pats go on a Brownsian level slide of inferiority, I don’t think I’m ready for Brady to retire. Dudes been the biggest name in football since I was 11 or 12 and I’m turning 27 in a few weeks. The league is gonna be weird when he retires.
