Hester is a hard-nosed baller with good character - just AJ's kinda guy. You can all do alla the trade chart value math you want, but it all boils down to who's on your board & who's left on the board. AJ & Buddy apparently had Hester tagged as a good pickup, looked at how the board is playing out, & pulled the trigger. As far as giving up a pick to the Pats & making them better, who cares?? :icon_shrug: We need to build our team to beat anyone who's in the way. That's all I care about.
