Man, he didn't turn out to be the world-beater he started out to be.

Broncos Acquire Laurence Maroney
Tue Sep 14, 2010
http://www.ffmastermind.com

fantasy football ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the New England Patriots have traded RB Laurence Maroney to the Denver Broncos for a swap of draft picks. New England gets Denver's fourth-round pick in 2011 and Denver gets New England's sixth-round pick in 2011.

The Pats receive Denver's fourth rounder, with their sixth-rounder going back to the Broncos. It was clear after preseason action that Maroney wasn't going to have a significant role in New England this season. Knowshon Moreno played well in his return to action Sunday, but the Broncos have serious depth concerns. Maroney has a history with coach Josh McDaniels, so he can plugged right in as the early-down backup. We suspect the trade says more about Correll Buckhalter, showing signs of decline and coming off a neck/back injury, than Moreno. Fred Taylor is locked in as the Pats' lead back.

Even the great Darth Belicheat makes first round misses....

And what a nice deal for Denver, a RB and a 6th rounder for a fourth...

Denver fans have to like that one, even tho Maroney has not exactly lived up to his draft position...

I like the Pats end better... a 4th for a guy who Patriots fans were expecting the team to cut.

Absolutely ... the Pats simply put just get the whole draft pick thing. Yes they might miss on some but they just keep aquiring them. The Seymour deal is a classsic example. That defense still might be a year away but they are young & much improved from last season ... now they get Oaklands #1 in the next draft. Retool , retool , retool.

watching both him and Barber play for the Gophers when I was an undergrad at the U (we in MN call Minnesota the U up here) he was awesome. I wish him the best of luck in Denver
