He only played for New England from '04 to '06 but '04 was the best year of his career and they won the Super Bowl that season.

MJD is three years younger than Dillon was and is a more versatile back, an ideal fit for our system.

If I was running the Broncos FO I'd offer a conditional pick that is a first rounder if the Broncos make the playoffs and is a 2nd rounder if not.
ok, but what did NE give up in the trade? That's kind of important don't you think?
