The Bromance of TB12 and OBJ

SHARE:

Imagine turning into 98.5 the Sports Hub to listen to the Patriots game and hearing Scott Zolak screaming in excitement of a Tom Brady to Odell Beckham Jr touchdown pass.  It would be music to the ears of everyone in New England.

The Patriots need a star, and there isn’t one much brighter than OBJ.  What it would take for the Giants to trade him to the Patriots remains to be seen.

Last week Brady invited the Giants star to Foxboro.  He invited him to test drive his Aston Martin.

Brady posted on his Instagram a picture of an Aston Martin at a show in Geneva.  That prompted current Patriots star and Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman to comment “still waiting for my car bro...”.  Brady entertained JE11’s banter and replied “guy wins one Super Bowl MVP."

Then the magic began.

Beckham commented “waiting for mine tooooo!!! Sheesh!”.  Brady would then put New England in a craze asking OBJ to “come to Foxboro for a test drive”.

That wasn’t the only social media interaction the two have had.  Back on February 16th, Brady posted again to his Instagram.  This time it was of his three children looking at the sunset.  Brady posted a comment with the picture saying “Good Night Sun”.  OBJ commented on this post about an hour later saying “Love u Brother.”

It’s clear these two kids are crazy about each other and this bromance has hit me in the feels.  I need TB12 throwing to OBJ.  Patriots fans alike need OBJ making one-handed grabs on Sunday Night Football.

Beckham, who has been linked to trade rumors the last two seasons, would be a welcome addition to the Patriots.  In 2018, Pro Football Talk reported that the Patriots were the most aggressive team in trying to acquire the Giants star receiver.  According to league sources at last year, the Giants were reportedly looking for two first round picks for OBJ, a price that New England wouldn’t pay.

It can be argued now that had the Patriots given in to the Giants demand it would have been an overpayment.  I say that since the Oakland Raiders recently acquired former Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown for a third and fifth round draft pick.  Despite the money owed to Brown, the price Oakland paid seems low for an All-Pro and arguably top-5 receiver in the NFL.

If the Patriots look to try and acquire OBJ, we can assume the Giants will ask for a first round pick.  I would absolutely part with the 32nd pick to acquire OBJ.

Take the fan boy excitement out of it and I look at it from a Patriots perspective; Beckham makes sense.  The Patriots have the draft compensation to make the trade work with the Giants.  Beckham also fits the win now window for the Patriots.

The Patriots will see Chris Hogan, Cordarrelle Patterson and Phillip Dorsett all test free agency, and the team will need to fill the void.  The club holds 12 picks in this year’s draft, and theoretically will draft a receiver this year.  If they do draft a receiver, there are options in the draft.  I will be looking at those options in my future Patriots draft series “Boom or Bust” coming out soon.

What makes this potential marriage unlikely is OBJ cap hit.  He is owed $21 million this year.  Despite his cap hit, Beckham is 26 and not eligible to become a free agent until 2024.  This would mean he would play with Brady until TB12 retires.

If the Patriots are looking to make a splash, then they should jump feet first into the OBJ conversation.  Coach Bill Belichick has a great relationship with the Giants, and he has the draft capital to swing a deal.

The Patriots should take advantage of this bromance and make this union happen.  Brady to Beckham for another Patriots first down has a beautiful ring to it.  Speaking of rings, Beckham would love to win one with the GOAT.
