    Cassel Traded

    Do you think we got enough value for him? I am kind of pissed we only got a 2nd...... but it was necessary because it allows us to sign some decent free agents..... Discuss.

    I'd give up our 23rd for Peppers in a heartbeat. *crosses fingers*

    Ya, he got that from http://www.thisiswhyyourefat.com

    Hilarious stuff on there...

    And I love the trade because I'm a Pats fan living in KC. I'm glad the Chiefs crapped out, so I could justify rooting for them. I love watching a team get built, especially when it's done the right way. I enjoy sharing my experience with the early Belichick Era with Chiefs fans and relate it to what's going on right now.

    I hope the Pats just use the cap space to front load extensions for Seymour and Wilfork after they pick up a vet corner (Springs, McAlister, Surtain) and re-sign a couple guys (Evans, Hochstein, Sanders, Harrison, Woods - might be forgetting a couple)

    Maybe our first for him somehow? It would eliminate one of the positions we would be drafting, possibly even at pick 23.

    I would love Peppers here in NE. Peppers, Adalius, and Mayo would be 3 super starters and we would just need to hope one of the young guys steps up. Adalius has the flexibility to play inside or outside (probably better inside), so I would hope Crable or Pierre Woods could start as the other outside guy with Peppers. It is all speculation, but it would allow us to focus a lot more on our secondary with whatever picks we didn't give up for Peppers in day 1.

    I would love peppers to NE, and if clearing cap space was their primary concern as it is being reported, then it could be peppers (i can only hope!)

    I am a little disappointed w/the deal, but it's completely understandable. I think they could have held out and received more for Cassel but it would have handcuffed the FO.

    With the signing of Sage, the Vikes are out and the other leading contenders (Bears/Lions/Bucs) have decent positions of leverage to hold out until draft day. So dumping Cassel early in FA allows NE to go and sign players now while there are still solid players available.

    Lots of cap space just opened up, Mr. Peppers. (I know I'm dreaming)

    I think Pioli just made the first of many brilliant moves for the Chiefs franchise. Frankly, I'm glad I've always had major respect for the KC fans, it will make it nice and easy to cheer on KC now.

    I actually like the deal. Cassel needed to be moved. Doesn't matter what he's worth if no one is paying it. Gives us a ton of space in the draft.

    I was hoping for a conditional pick in 2010, or even a 5th-6th rounder.

    But hey, Cassel wouldve been a back up and Vrabel mightve been cut anyways.

    We get #34 overall for nothing.

    I thought for sure we'd get at least a mid-first
    if it was a 2nd- i figured we'd get a comp 2nd in next years draft.
    I really wish we woulda traded Cassel to NC for Peppers. That's what I was hopin for

    I understand the salary dump with Vrabel- kinda. I think we should of kept him though.



    We better make a big splash in FA then.
    Who's out there for us? C. McAllister?



    I do like the fact that we have 3 2nd rounders though.
    I'd like to see us move up in the 1st though.
    I think if Everette Brown or maybe Maualuga were to fall to the mid-late teens they may move up. I think this could definitely mean that either Percy Harvin or DHB will be a Patriot next year and we can still cover defense well
