A lot of rumors have been flowing about the possibility of the New England Patriots making a trade with the Seattle Seahawks for Super Bowl 48 Champion Richard Sherman. A move that would place the Patriots further on a path towards not only a victory in Super Bowl 52 in February of 2018, but potentially towards a 19-0 record.

The news hit recently, but was quickly noted as being dead news from weeks prior. This week it has resurfaced. Now it’s again being debunked as the Patriots are being said as having no interest. Bill Belichick is Bill Belichick and he never reveals his hand. One thing is certain, that until Sherman is traded elsewhere or remains in Seattle, then it’s always a possibility. The Patriots could always send Malcolm Butler to Seattle if they wanted to.

Imagine a scenario where Butler must remain in New England and Sherman was acquired? Then take into account the Patriots recently acquiring Stephon Gilmore. That would be the most lethal core of cornerbacks ever assembled. They would have three #1 corners on the roster. Then you still have Darrelle Revis available as a free agent. A player looking to give it one more shot. So even if the Patriots let Butler go to Seattle, Revis could replace him. A lot of different scenarios could play out but the Patriots have a multitude of options.
