I tend to agree. I think Gilmore gets traded/cut at age 31 next year and Belichick won't commit longterm to a 32 year old run dependent Newton. Instead I think they will be active in free agency for weapons, match about every offer that comes for RFA JC Jackson, extend Thuney and draft a QB unless a good QB becomes available like Prescott. Most of the old players like Hightower, Chung, Edelman and McCourty will also leave. Belichick then can restructure and rebuild this roster and if he gets the right QB NE could compete for the SB again in 2022 with a 2nd year QB. Personally I would like them to extend Newton but I don't think it happens and instead they will get a rookie in the 1st or 2nd round.
