The Cowboys and Patriots could jump to pick 4 for the Falcons; WR Julian Edelman is hesitant to play the entire season in 2021 and beyond.
Cowboys and Patriots interested in pick 4 for the Falcons
According to some rumors, the Dallas Cowboys could be a team that jumps to pick 4 of the 2021 NFL Draft by making a trade with the Falcons. Franchise owner Jerry Jones declared his “quirk” with TE Kyle Pitts, and it would be the reason the NFC East team would seek to jump from the 10th pick to the fourth.
On the other hand, the New England Patriots are the second team that could make such a change with Atlanta to acquire the fourth draft pick. The AFC East team currently has the 15th pick of the event, but they are not ruling out jumping as many positions to take their quarterback of the future.
Edelman doubts he can play the full season 2021
Hard topic among the NFL news. The New England Patriots WR, Julian Edelman, says he wants to be present in the 2021 season but doubts that he can play it completely due to a chronic problem in his knees. Until 2019, the receiver had only had 2 seasons in which he played less than 10 games in total. In 2020, the veteran barely played in six and only started in one of them.

New York Jets General Manager Joe Douglas said he doesn’t have in mind whether or not he looked bad after trading QB Sam Darnold to the Panthers. “I can give two shits if I looked bad or not.

“We need to fill the LT gap”: Staley
Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley said his team should reinforce the left tackle position this offseason. “Without a doubt, it is a gap that we currently have. We feel like we have some prospects on the roster who can play there. But it is definitely a position that we will pay attention to before July”, assured the coach.
Currently, the Chargers have Trey Pipkins as their only left tackle among their ranks. They also have the thirteenth selection of the 2021 NFL Draft with which they could select an LT.
