Everyone keeps saying "just a 4th rounder" and are ignoring TE Tim Wright being in the deal. This could say something about the health of Gronk or just the fact that they want to go back to a solid 2 TE set. I can see him being a big part of their offense this year.
Wright is a big, athletic TE who fits the Patriots perfectly and scoring 5 TD's and almost 600 yds in his rookie season is nothing to ignore. Plus it frees up $5.8m in cap space for them.
Valid. That's part of the deal too.
Lovie Smith was recently quoted as saying that Wright "hasn't played as well as he should be playing" so I guess they're not that worried about parting with him.
