  • By "OK", Vince is talking about the overall money. For one year, it's great, but he wants a long-term deal with about 4 to 5 times the guaranteed money he'd get with a franchise tag. When you look at it that way, you can see why he said it's only "OK".

        Trust me- if it was up to me he'd have his fat contract already

        • So my quick math calculations based on Fat Albert's contract were wrong, I guess. From the link Nalej provided:

          "If the Patriots and Wilfork don't agree on a contract extension by late February, the team is expected to place the franchise tag on Wilfork. That figure would be $7.003 million."

          So it wouldn't even be moving up to $7.5 million.

            last year- tell me how much money Robert Kraft made?
            The players fill the seats and with their play get the team merchandise sold.
            1.5 Million is a lot but how big of a piece of that pie is it?
            If I perfermed a job that made my employer million/billions of dollars
            you best believe I will not accept a 50K/yr salary... makes no sense

            With that said- I did raise my eyebrow when he said the franchise tag is "ok" money but I think Elvis got it right when he said it would probably take slightly above that with a nice signing bonus to seal the deal.
            He's already said he doesn't want a A.Haynesworth type of contract.
            ... and after honoring his rookie contract- its the Pats turn to honor him back with a contract he deserves
            Haha. And I always side with the owners, so I'm not sure that we'll end up agreeing on this. :) I don't care how muck money my employer makes, and I sure as hell don't bring up that topic when negotiating my salary. Never have, never will. It shouldn't be a factor, and yet somehow it is. The system as it is i F'ed up, and it needs to be changed. There is no other industry where the employer pays out 60% of their revenue to their employees, it's just not good business. And don't forget, I agree that he needs to be signed. But I stille think it's just pure greed when the players ask for this kind of money, and I don't like it. I respect the way WV has handled himself during his time in Boston, but I don't like what I'm hearing from him now. And Samuel should just ****.

            • The thing is, the Pats and everyone else are waiting to see what exactly happens with the CBA. No one is going to get signed until then.

              • So did anyone read the thread started the other day here on the 8 playoff teams this year arent allowed to sign any UR free agents? I may have read it wrong, but that'd be lame.

                • ^ Yes. They can only sign guys to contracts equal to that of the Players they lose in FA. Pretty screwy since the good players will be gone in the first few days so they'll have little chance to sign any top talent once their own guys signs elsewhere.

                  But the owners knew it would be the case so they should have pushed a little harder for a deal if they don't like it.

                    • As far as OLBs go- I really dont care who we get.
                      Graham, Hughes, JPP, Kindle- all ballers. All are welcomed in NE.

                      Gilyard is a baller but I don't see what he brings to the table that's any different then Tate. I understand he's recovering from injury but I say we give him a shot. If we bring in a WR I'd prefer a Benn/Lafell type to compliment the current WRs on the roster

                      L.Blount- Love him. Would love to snatch him with our 4th if we don't grab Spiller or Best before that.

                      D.McCluster- another guy I'd love to see in NE. I think we'd use him in ways that would make us smile and every other team in the league cry. He's a monster... a little one

                      I'm not on the Arenas bandwagon and don't know too much about McCourty but if Bodden isn't resigned then I can see us snatch a CB.
                      Hopefully it isn't too early though. We have other needs that should take precedence

                      J.Ford- late round flyer. We need to upgrade our return game. He'd potentially do wonders

                          So the Pats are not among those 8, right? Losing to Baltimore will probably end up being a long-term boon.

                            Correct. Lets hope so.
                            If any good could come of losing in the Playoffs- let it be this

                            • I'm just hoping its not the top seeds, and who actually advanced.
