The tradition lives on, as the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles have made a draft-day trade once again.
New England traded the No. 193 overall pick to Philadelphia in exchange for the No. 194 overall pick. Seriously, that was it. The reason? The Pats and Eagles have made a draft-day trade every year since 2000.
Jon Bois of SB Nation reacts to the interesting trade below.
That's it. That's the entire trade. The Patriots voluntarily allowed the Eagles to cut in front of them for free. Now, I'm sure they only did so because they didn't think the Eagles had designs on the guy they were after, but this was just a trade for trade's sake.
Don't ever let anyone tell you that Bill Belichick doesn't have a sense of humor.
