      Give up your picks and a monster contract Vikings, do it.

      What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
      they get smoked.

        Once Cassel signs the tender, it's fully guaranteed.

          A good CYA move by the Pats if Brady really did have a setback, and a little ridiculous if they can't move Cassel.

          I believe you can remove the franchise tag by a certain point if you don't feel you can move him and then he becomes a UFA (anyone? feel free to correct me.)

          In the end, someone is going to need him; there are not enough good starting QBs in the league. Teams like Minnesota, Chicago, San Francisco, and Tampa would all like to have him. Will he necessarily be good? Maybe, maybe not. But his value is higher than anyone currently at the position on those rosters.

              I don't get it. This was the only way he could possibly go to the Vikes. This is just the first step and allows both teams to begin negotiations right now.

                And it has begun. How long will ESPN talk about possible trades involving Brady?

                    If the Cardinals for some weird reason didn't resign Warner could go to Minny. Seriously doubt that would happen.

                            Dude, Matt Cassel is totally better than Brady and I think we would have won every Super Bowl in history with him. He does so many things better early on with an inferior offense and without sitting for years and years! Brady is the best quarterback in the NFL, but Cassel is somehow better for the team or something. Yeah. That sounds spirited and reactionary.

                            Seriously though, good move. Let's at least get something for the guy. He's a damned good quarterback, but he isn't anywhere near Brady right now. He's in the Derek Anderson last year neighborhood. If Brady's ready, we cash in.

                              Something he should do ASAP.

                              Why not?

                              $14.5M this season guaranteed, probably to be a backup. Next offseason you hit the market again. So you're basically going to get 2 signing bonuses in 2 seasons.

                              All for one decent season in ideal circumstances. What a pay day.

                              Charles Woodson did it to the Raiders to force them to not tag him the next offseason, and it worked. Cassel should do it to cash in and achieve much the same thing.

                              Are the Pats even *really* prepared to have his $14.5M on the cap this season? If not, playing with the franchise tag is akin to playing with fire.

                                Uhhhh I'm sorry you guys, but I thought the major problem with getting the tag was that it in fact isn't guaranteed money... which is why players hate getting it.

                                Am I wrong here? (honest question).

                                Oh and also: unless they amputate Brady's leg, Cassel's outta NE.
