Report: Patriots have gauged trade market for Kony Ealy

The Patriots traded a second-round pick for defensive end Kony Ealy and a third-round pick this offseason and they have reportedly taken a look to see what they could get back in another trade involving Ealy. Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that New England has “gauged” the trade market for Ealy. Ealy had a slow start to his first training camp with the Patriots as he sat out the team’s first practice and then spent time working with the second and third teams as he worked to get comfortable with what the Patriots ask of their ends.
