How Dolphins' reported run at 2020 No. 1 pick could impact Patriots

How Dolphins' reported run at 2020 No. 1 pick could impact Patriots

Want a sign of normalcy amid these uncertain times?

We have our first wild NFL Draft trade rumor.

The Miami Dolphins, who own the No. 5 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, reportedly have been mulling a trade up to No. 2 to take Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

According to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, though, they plan on making a run at the No. 1 overall pick and LSU's Joe Burrow.

That'd be quite the shakeup, as the Cincinnati Bengals have been considered a virtual lock for Burrow.

Cincinnati likely would command a hefty price tag for the No. 1 pick, but the Dolphins have the resources, with a league-high 14 selections in 2020 that includes three first-rounders.

They're just rumors at the moment, but if Miami pulls the trigger and moves up for Burrow, it would have a huge trickle-down effect that could impact the New England Patriots.

While the Patriots seem content with Jarrett Stidham as their starting quarterback, they still may target a signal-caller in the 2020 draft to compete with Stidham.

Our Phil Perry floated the idea in November of Tagovailoa being an intriguing option for the Patriots, and if the Dolphins are out on the talented QB, perhaps Bill Belichick would consider trading up from No. 23 to grab him.

That scenario admittedly seems unlikely, but the Dolphins drafting Burrow still could shake up the QB draft order. Would the QB-needy Bengals select Tagovailoa instead, or pursue another top arm like Justin Herbert or Jordan Love -- the latter of which might be on the Patriots' radar?

It will be fascinating to see how this all plays out. And the Patriots -- who play Miami twice in the AFC East and may get some competition from Brian Flores' club with Tom Brady out of the picture -- will be watching intently.

Twitter had jokes after Tom Brady ripped his pants during 'The Match'

Tom Brady's Sunday afternoon of golfing with Peyton Manning, Tiger Woods, and Phil Mickelson was eventful, to say the least.

The ex-New England Patriots quarterback began "The Match" by struggling through the first six holes. Then, he finally got back on track with an amazing shot that briefly quieted the naysayers.

Unfortunately for Brady, the shot may have been overshadowed by him simultaneously splitting his pants. Just look at the photo below:

Whoops!

As you can imagine, Twitter had some fun with Brady's mishap:

It's OK, Tom. It happens to the best of us.

Tom Brady has a thing for comebacks.

The former New England Patriots quarterback was struggling mightily through the first few holes of "The Match" on Sunday. Then, he totally redeemed himself.

Just watch this shot below and enjoy:

"Shut your mouth, Chuck," Brady said to Charles Barkley, who had been chirping him throughout the match.

We should have known a comeback was around the corner. Didn't 28-3 teach us anything?

Just as Twitter had a field day with Brady's early struggles, it enjoyed watching Brady sink that improbable shot:

Bravo, Tom. Bravo.
