Saquon Barkley's idol was Kobe Bryant. We talked about it on multiple occasions. He was a student of the Mamba Mentality. Said even if they talked he would already know all Kobe's answers. They never had the opportunity to sit down and talk. Barkley was hoping it would happen. "I would love to sit down with Kobe Bryant," he said in October. Thought for sure it would happen. Sadly, life had other plans.

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the Bill Belichick "trade" between the Jets and Patriots. In retrospect, the Jets got robbed, but who knew he'd become what he is? The Jets received a 2000 first-round pick (DE Shaun Ellis), a 2001 fourth-rounder (DB Jamie Henderson) and a 2001 seventh-rounder (DT James Reed). In addition to the former HC of the NYJ, the Patriots received a couple of late-round picks, neither of which panned out. Doesn't matter; Belichick changed history.
