Patriots Send Dawson to Broncos in Surprising Trade

Patriots Send Dawson to Broncos in Surprising Trade

With Morse's full clearance from concussion protocol as Saturday's final roster deadline approaches, Bills general manager Brandon Beane made the rare trade with a division rival.

Earlier in the week, New England acquired help for its offensive line. With so many options in the secondary already, the front office had to part ways with a few options.

The Denver Broncos have traded a sixth-round draft pick to the New England Patriots in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick and cornerback Duke Dawson, Henry McKenna of Patriots Wire reported Friday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport was the first to report the news.

Dawson was the 56th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

A police officer told Reuters that a 200-liter chemical barrel had exploded, causing fire to spread through the factory. The Congress leader also sought a compensation of Rs 10 lakh for the kin of the deceased and Rs 2 lakh for the injured.


Dawson departs the Patriots after spending just one season with the team.

The Patriots also drafted cornerback Joejuan Williams in the second round of the 2019 draft, further adding to a position that includes starters Stephon Gilmore and Jason McCourty, as well as a future potential starter, second-year player J.C. Jackson.

The terms of the deal involve the Broncos' 2020 6th round pick along with the Patriots own 7th rounder in 2020.

Dawson (5-11, 197 pounds) was selected by New England in the second round of the 2018 National Football League draft out of Florida. There simply wasn't room on the roster for Dawson, who now has a chance for a fresh start in Denver.
