    Kinda strange that the Pats are making this big FA signing. They must really miss Willie McGinest, as Thomas is said to be a bit like him.

    wow that front 7 is going to be scary for them.
    The best 3-4 DLine in the league, Adalius and Colvin at OLB and they'll probally try to add a ILB in the draft to put along side Vrabel/Bruschi.
    I believe Thomas is 29 years old. So he still has some very good years left in him. Belichek is going to find some great ways to ultilize him in his schemes.

    I can see why he'd want to go to NE, they have as good of chance to win a superbowl then anyone else in the league. It's almost not fair that they got another first rounder this year for a undersized above average WR. ITs almost not fair. They continue to add talent threw the draft and apparently now as well through FA.

    if they can get the best FA, and considering they kept asente, that would be an awesome offseason, plus they have two first rounders, Looks like the Pats, are gonna be favourites heading into next year

    As a diehard Colts fan this kinda sucks hearing this. However, Im not too dissapointed since Thomas is an older player(I think he is either 30 or 31). While the Pats defense is good, they are also old and this move just keeps them as one of the older teams in the league.
    Well actually, really only the LB position for the Pats are old. Our D-line is very young and our DB's outside of Rodney are all young.

    Leave it up to an Eagles fan to act bitter. Their philosophy is to build through the draft, eh? REALLY? Is that how they do it?

    I laugh if we do this too, because you know, it puts us THAT much closer to winning ANOTHER Super Bowl (which for those counting along at home would be #4 in seven years). The best part is, we haven't even gotten to the draft yet. So yuck it up all you want. I'll just keep laughing on game day...
    Bringing up championships to eagles fans is the best.

    PS Nice work by the Pats...

    They do. Does that prevent them to sign FAs? That signing probably mean they don't feel talent would be there at 24 and 28 or later to fill the OLB job immediatly.

    If nolan wants him, he will make a last ditch offer.
    According to Nolan, the Niners hadn't even pitched their offer to Thomas yet and reports have said they are planning to offer over 8 million a year and a 20 million dollar bonus. I heard the Pats are offering less at 7.5 million a year and a 17 million dollar bonus.

    Not sure where Thomas will go, but the Niners are still in the game according to Nolan.

    Wow! This would be great for the Pats. They don't sign many big name free agents . . . this is quite surprising if it happens.
