Josh Brown: PFT
Pretty interesting read & idea. I wouldn't mind Josh Brown as kicker.

PATS TO PULL OUT A POISON PILL OF THEIR OWN?
We always read the e-mails that readers send to us. Not just because we are gluttons for abuse, but because sometimes our readers offer up some pretty good insights.
And then we can pass them off as our own.
Case in point. Now that the Seahawks have signed Vikings receiver Nate Burleson to a seven-year, $49 million contract that becomes fully guaranteed if he plays five or more games in Minnesota during any year of the deal, the Seahawks could end up losing kicker Josh Brown if a team signs him to an offer sheet that becomes fully guaranteed if Brown plays five or more games in the state of Washington. By adding several big-dollar phony years onto the end of the deal, there's no way the Seahawks would match.
So it's possible that the Seahawks have outsmarted themselves.
If a team with a pressing need at the position (such as the Patriots) is willing to give up a seventh-round draft pick, they can get Brown by turning the tables on the Seahawks.
Also available for such a maneuver is Seahawks quarterback Seneca Wallace, who would command a fourth-round pick as compensation.
I posited this in an earlier thread re: Nate Burleson. Frankly, I'd have no problem if the Pats tried this. Better to ask forgiveness than permission.
Though I'm sure Hags would take it to an abritrator, so I think NE would have to do something a little slicker than what the Hawks did for Burleson (the thinking being that Vikings wouldn't fight it bc they'd prefer the 3rd round pick; highly doubt the Hawks would be nearly as chuffed for a 7th for Brown).
That loophole is destined to be closed...so better act quick.
