Patriots deal former 2nd-round pick Dawson to Broncos

Patriots deal former 2nd-round pick Dawson to Broncos”

The New England Patriots are trading cornerback Duke Dawson to the Denver Broncos, two sources told Patriots Wire on Friday. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Patriots will exchange Dawson and a seventh-round pick in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick.

The team will have to make an extra transaction to make room for Dawson.

While it's easy to throw the "bust" term at Dawson, it feels worth mentioning that that aforementioned numbers game hurt him this preseason and that a hamstring injury robbed Dawson of his rookie season in New England.

When New England drafted Vanderbilt alum Joejuan Williams with the 45th pick of this year's draft, it essentially signaled to Dawson that if he meant to remain on this roster, he'd need to prove himself sooner rather than later.

Dawson's departure leaves the Patriots with 14 defensive backs ahead of this weekend's cutdown.

When the Broncos officially closed their preseason Thursday night, they had less than 48 hours to form an initial 53-man active roster, begin to think about their 10-man practice squad and decide which of their many injured players will be shelved for the foreseeable future. Crossen also illustrated his value to the Pats by playing terrifically on special teams, an area Dawson has not really made an impact on. Because of that depth, Dawson couldn't get on the field.
