These are the four worst moves made by the Patriots (so far) in the 2020 offseason.

The New England Patriots’ 2020 offseason is certainly one the fan base will not soon forget.

After 20 glorious years with Tom Brady at the helm, the Patriots and Brady have separated. It’s going to be weird to see Brady in another city and to see how the Patriots operate (and perform) without TB12 under center.

The Patriots got to work on their rebuilding process in the 2020 NFL Draft while keeping some key pieces in free agency as well, but things are going to be odd in Foxboro this year.

Are the Patriots fooling everybody into thinking they are actually trying to compete with Jarrett Stidham at quarterback in 2020? Or do they actually believe they can?

The Patriots have long been the standard in the NFL for being one of the most well-run organizations and that is going to be put to the test more than ever before in 2020. Even though the Pats have gone through times in the past where Brady was injured, even for an entire season where they rolled with Matt Cassel and had success, this is different.

This is a permanent change.

Every team deserves the opportunity to go out and prove themselves on the field, and you can never count out the coaching of Bill Belichick, but on paper the Patriots appear to have had one of the worst offseasons in the NFL in 2020.
