    This title should be changed to "he was offered a contract from the pats"

    Not he is signed by the pats


    He will look good in aqua and orange across from Chris Chambers :)

      If a player leaves a city without a contract, that is generally not great news for that city. That being said, 6 years/$32mm is better than the Eagles are likely to offer. IMO, it's also too much for a WR with chronic hamstring issues who has only played 1 full season in the NFL...

        2 full seasons. He played all 16 in 2004 and 2005.

          I stand corrected. Regardless, his consistent issues with hamstring pulls due to congenital issues remain a concern.

              May have been a few days early, but the end result is the same. Just pumped about this. :)

                    It could potentially be a good move for NE as he brings game-changing speed to their offense. But, still... that's a lot of money for a WR that is injured most of the time and is still a bit inconsistent.
                    The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                    “We know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. We’ve shown we’ve been able to do that.” - Jabari Greer

                      QFT, thats alot of guaranteed money to throw at a player with his kind of injury history. I thought he would really be forced to sign a 1-year deal and try to clear up that stigma.

                        Kind of interesting they signed him to a contract only slightly smaller than what Seattle gave Branch.

                            Great move by them, they have by far the best offseason.

                              STALLWORTH TO PATS, BUT NOT FOR $12 MILLION GUARANTEED

                              Michael Smith of ESPN.com reports that receiver Donte' Stallworth has agreed to terms with the Patriots. But, contrary to the report, the deal does not include $12 million in guaranteed money. And it is not a straight six-year deal.

                              Instead, a league source tells us that it's a one-year deal with an option for a second year, and then an option for four more years.

                              In year one, Stallworth gets $1 million to sign, a workout bonus of $300,000, a base salary of $700,000, and a $1.6 million roster bonus payable if he makes the 53-man roster at the start of the reason.

                              Stallworth also can earn up to $400,000 in incentives. He'll get $100,000 if he catches 70 passes, another $100,000 if he catches 75 passes, another $100,000 if he catches 80 passes, and $100,000 if he is on the Pro Bowl team.

                              A $6 million option bonus is due shortly before the start of the 2008 league year, but after the deadline for designating franchise players. This requires the team to either pick up the option, or to allow Stallworth to hit the market unfettered by the franchise tag.

                              In 2008, there's also a $2 million roster bonus due on the first day of the league year, a $400,000 workout bonus, a $1 million base salary, and a $1.6 million roster bonus payable if he makes the season-opening 53-man roster.

                              In 2009, there's a $2 million option bonus, payable after the franchise tag deadline but before the start of the league year. If the option is exercised, the deal runs through 2012.

                              Also in 2009, Stallworth will receive a $400,000 workout bonus, a $1 million base salary, and a $1.6 million roster bonus based on making the season-opening 53-man roster.

                              In 2010 through 2012, the deal has the same terms in each year: $500,000 workout bonus and $4 million salary.

                              In all, it's a one-year $3.6 million deal that can be worth up to $4 million, or a two-year, $14.6 million deal that can be worth as much as $15 million, or a three-year, $19.6 million deal that can be worth as much as $20 million.

                              The Pats can then add on additional years at $4.5 million each, with a maximum contract value of $33.5 million.

                              But the only truly guaranteed money is $1 million. Not $12 million.
                              The question was asked in the other thread if the Pats were done and out of money... not by a longshot!!!!!!

                                ...in English please?

                                All I'm pointing out is that it's interesting that they wouldn't pay Branch and traded him only to sign Stallworth to a deal of similar total value.
