Mike Reiss of ESPN reports that G Joe Thuney and the Patriots are “not close on a deal.” (ProFootballTalk on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Thuney got the franchise tag from New England, which will pay him $14.78M in 2020. That’s a large cap hit for a team that needs to free up some space, and the Patriots could do that by agreeing to a long-term deal with the All-Pro guard. But according to Reiss, the two sides aren’t close, which could lead to a trade this week ahead of the Draft. A trade could also be completed immediately, as Thuney has already signed his franchise tender.
