Todd Bowles offers up truck in exchange for Pats trading Tom Brady
Nothing arguably would make New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles any happier from a professional standpoint than to not have to face Tom Brady two times every season. So much so, in fact, he joked that if a reporter could effectuate the New England Patriots trading their longtime franchise quarterback, he’d be more than happy to offer up a reward.
During a broader discussion about how the Patriots traded away defensive standout Chandler Jones to the Arizona Cardinals — much to Bowles’ relief — the Jets coach was asked how he would respond if Brady was sent packing.
Todd Bowles glad Chandler Jones out of division. If Tom Brady gets traded? "If you work that out, you can have my truck," he said. #nyj

That’s seems like small time, given the gravity of the hypothetical. Unless it’s a really really really fancy truck — say something like Yoenis Cespedes would drive (or even far more extravagant) — odds are certain Bowles would be thrilled to go far above and way beyond simply giving away his vehicle. A few years’ salary at the very least would be arguably apropos.
