The Patriots and Raiders are making a trade on Wednesday.

According to multiple reports, the Patriots are sending tackle Justin Herron to the Raiders. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick did not confirm that the deal was done during his Wednesday press conference, but said, “when we can, if we can, we will.”

Albert Breer of SI.com reports the Patriots will send a 2024 seventh-rounder to Las Vegas as well and that the Raiders will send a 2024 sixth-round pick back.

Herron was a 2020 sixth-round pick in New England who has started 10 of the 28 games he’s played in the NFL. Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels and offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo both know Herron well after working with him the last two years and Raiders General Manager Dave Ziegler worked in the Patriots personnel department when Herron joined the team.

  1. I guess this bodes well for their feelings on Brown/Wynn and Cajuste/Cannon.

    Raiders 0-2 and could very easily be 0-3 with the new coach and expensive Davonte Adams and Chandler Jones, etc.

    Hmmm.

  2. Although McDaniels poached a lot of Belichick’s staff, Belichick is not holding a grudge. Depending on how McDaniels stint goes in Vegas, I can totally see Belichick recommending McDaniels to be his heir apparent in New England.

  3. Amazing how a Bama O-Lineman like Leatherwood could crash and burn like he did. Did the Raiders coaching screw him up that badly? Weird.

  4. Another ex-Patriot assistant failing as a head coach

    1. Joe Judge
    2. Matt Patrica
    3. Eric Mangini

  5. He’ll be back in N.E. in three years. He’s a better head coach now as he’s learned not to implement BB’s system. It works for him, and him only. You can take what you’ve learned. But, if you try and apply it the wrong way (see Denver) then no one will buy in.

    Not sure how he’ll fair with the Raiders here, but he’s going to need to win pretty soon if he wants to remain relevant.
