WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

On the surface, this seems like an odd pick as the Patriots traded up for Bailey after re-signing standout punter Ryan Allen. However, it's likely Bailey will be showing off his big leg as New England's kickoff specialist. There is no detail too small to trade up for with Bill Belichick. Mark Dulgerian, 澳门赌场正规网址 Network
