The Patriots WR core now consists of: Wes Welker, Julian Edelman, Darnell Jenkins, Tyree Barnes, Taylor Price, Matthew Slater, and Shun White. Outside of Welker, none of these names are really striking fear into the hearts of opposing CB's and Defensive Coordinators.
What's my point in all of this? The Buffalo Bills' trade of Marshawn Lynch to the Seattle Seahawks just looks that much better now in my opinion. The Bills traded Lynch for a 4th round pick this year, and a conditional pick (5th or 6th round) in the 2012 draft. Sure Lynch is much younger than Moss, and maybe it's a valid argument that Moss is entering the downside of his career. But you can't ignore the fact that Moss still put up 1,264 yards and 13 TD's last year compared to Lynch's 450 yards and 2 TD's. When comparing the 2 players, there really is no comparison. Lynch is a 24 year old RB, it's pretty much become commonplace that NFL RB's fall off the table once they hit the age of 30 (If they've been starting since entering the league that is). It only stands to reason that Lynch should not be an exception to this rule, ESPECIALLY when taking into consideration his running style. Where as a player like Moss has spent his entire career essentially avoiding contact by just running by people and catching a whole mess of TD's. A style of player that is much more conducive to a long and productive NFL career.
