New England already signed former Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore to a massive contract, and has been hot on the rumor mill for Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks.

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. While the difference in picks is technically one round, New England will actually drop just eight spots from pick 64 to pick 72.

Ealy played three seasons in the National Football League, all with the Panthers. Ealy played 37% of the snaps as a rookie and had played almost 60% of the Panthers snaps over the past two season. He has the tools to be a big-time pass rusher at 6-foot-4 and 275 pounds, but it hasn't happened to this point. Ealy had three sacks, an interception a forced fumble and a fumble recovery against Peyton Manning in the Broncos' 24-10 victory in February of 2016.

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