3. New England Patriots
With the New England Patriots' recent hiring of Jerod Mayo to take over for Bill Belichick as the team's head coach, this would be one heck of a first move. Mayo is obviously a defensive-minded coach, having played linebacker and previously coaching the team's inside linebackers. So, a move like this would speak to his love for defense.
The Patriots dearly missed Matthew Judon last year after he only played in a handful of games. The Patriots finished tied for the fourth-fewest sacks in the league last season with just 34 as a team. They also received a lackluster year from Josh Uche, just a season after his breakout. In 2022, Uche totaled 11.5 sacks. Last year, that number fell to 3.0.
The Patriots are no. 4 in projected, effective cap space this offseason per Over The Cap, with a number hovering right around $56 million. They have the money to absorb a contract like Crosby. They also have the no. 3 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, which they could always use to trade back or use in a deal with the Raiders for Crosby.
New England's biggest problems are on offense, of course, with quarterback being a sore spot. But, adding Crosby to an already-top-ten defense would be one heck of a move.
