Mallett's trade value

Last offseason there were myriad potential starting quarterbacks available via the draft, free agency and trades to teams that needed one. Things aren't nearly as promising in that department this offseason, especially now that the Kansas City Chiefs have secured Alex Smith from the San Francisco 49ers. Noting the weak market and the Smith move, the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe thinks the New England Patriots may end up moving backup QB Ryan Mallett.
