The Patriots made their first major move of the offseason Tuesday, trading popular defensive end Chandler Jones to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for guard Jonathan Cooper and a second round draft pick.


The moves makes sense for both teams as the Patriots desperately needed help on their offensive line and were in a need of a low draft pick because of the Deflategate docking of their 2016 first rounder. The Cardinals have long coveted a top-notch defensive end.
