Don't expect Jackson; how about Branch?

Moss Trade Fallout (2:16)

Adam Schefter on Randy Moss' desire for a new contract and the Patriots interest in Vincent Jackson (2:16)

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter was on SportsCenter on Thursday morning talking about what might be next for the Patriots now that Randy Moss is off to Minnesota (video above).

Might New England, which has plenty of draft picks to spare, make a deal for disgruntled Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson, who could potentially be the downfield threat the Patriots are losing in Moss?

“Vincent Jackson is not going to wind up as a New England Patriot, you can put that speculation to rest right now,” Schefter said, throwing water on that possibility.

Might the Patriots try to swing a trade with the Seahawks to bring receiver Deion Branch back to New England? There’s buzz on Twitter among reporters from both Seattle and New England about that possibility.

ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss is currently investigating. Stay tuned.
