New England Patriots 2018 first-round pick Isaiah Wynn is on the trade block, it would appear, as he deleted all team-related posts from his social media.
Perhaps the better question as it pertains to Isaiah Wynn is who would want to trade for him at this juncture?
Wynn, a former first-round pick out of Georgia, has not performed up to the standards of a high draft selection. If New England were to deal him, they’d be taking a major loss in draft capital.
So, Bill Belichick may have no better option but to keep Wynn around. Per Patriots Wire, that likely shouldn’t be as a starter long-term:
"“Things have been so bad in recent outings that the team has actually replaced him with veteran tackle Marcus Cannon on multiple occasions. Coach Bill Belichick must have had a headache the size of Pat Patriot’s chin when watching the tape from last Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.”"
Patriots rumors: Isaiah Wynn might want out
Per Pro Football Focus, Wynn had the worst pass-blocking and run-blocking grades on the entire Pats team last week. Woof.
SB Nation summed up Wynn’s day quite well, and not in a way he’d like:
“Wynn had a disaster of a day against the Cleveland Browns, surrendering four pressures and a penalty en route to a 24.3 PFF grade. The rest of the line held up far better.”
Applying the first-round draft bust to any player is a label I’d prefer not to give. A change of scenery would do Wynn some good moving forward.
He might know this more than most, as the Georgia product altered his social media this week, eliminating any Patriots-related content.
Is this a sign what Wynn is on the way out in New England?
The more likely option is that the Pats let Wynn ride out his contract. But there’s little chance this has a good ending for the former first rounder.
