“Honestly, I really haven’t thought about any of that stuff right now. Just pretty focused on Atlanta," Patricia replied. "I would say typically ... usually, teams -- right around the trade deadline -- will start to make phone calls, they’ll start to inquire, they’ll start to ask. I think at that point, it depends on what individual (that) teams are looking for from that accord and what they might be interested in and what that whole picture looks like from both sides. That’s usually where it starts. Right now, for me, it’s really just Atlanta. That’s kind of just where I’m at.”
On this week's podcast, John Maakaron & Logan Lamorandier explore the possibility that Detroit could be buyers at the deadline and how the result of the Falcons game could play a strong, determining factor in general manager Bob Quinn's decision-making.
