The New England Patriots have been severely haunted by the absence of Rob Gronkowski. Once the gargantuan tight end played his very last game in Super Bowl LIII, the Patriots entered a committed search for his replacement. They thought Benjamin Watson was that guy, but boy, were they wrong.

Now entering 2020 with this very same issue, it's time to look back at the Patriots' massive mistake in trading tight end Jacob Holister to the Seattle Seahawks for merely a 2020 seventh-round pick.

Back at the time of the trade, you may have thought, "hey, at least New England got something for a tight end that was bound to get waived." The problem with that logic?
