Patriots trade for Panthers' talented if unproductive Kony Ealy at minimal cost

It's a small slide in the draft order too, as the Patriots will give up the No. 64 overall pick - the last selection of the second round - and take Carolina's No. 72 selection.

Now he's reportedly being shipped out of town in a deal that will send Ealy and a third-round pick to the Patriots for a second-round pick, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Ealy played 37% of the snaps as a rookie and had played almost 60% of the Panthers snaps over the past two season.

Ealy, who is listed at 6-foot-4, 273 pounds, is entering the final year of his contract.

At 25, though, Ealy is a player riddled with upside who has only started 15 games over the first three years of his career.

Ronald Koeman: Everton paid for their errors in defeat at Tottenham

The Patriots now own the 72nd, 96th, and 103rd picks in the third round.

Ealy entered the National Football League as a 2014 second-round draft choice out of Missouri, going 60th overall to the Panthers, which reflects how he was one of the higher-touted prospects coming out of the draft. They get Ealy and only move down 8 spots from the #64 to the #72 pick in the third round.

Defensive end Chris Long announced earlier he would not be returning to the Patriots, and Jabaal Sheard is a free agent.

Ealy posted 14 sacks and forced six fumbles since being drafted by the Panthers. He also registered 3 sacks, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, and an interception in a Trey Flowers-esque performance during Super Bowl 50 against the Denver Broncos.
