    according to Fox Sports New England. Seymour will become the highest DL in football.

    I swear that someone on this board predicted this;)

    This is the place to learn cap stuff... this board and Miguel's cap page have turned me into a total offseason geek.

    Not to mention an emoticon addict.

    Miguel, let us know when you have updated your site. Also, when you know what the breakdown year by year is, and the signing bonus, etc., let us know. I am interested to know what his total cap hit will be for 2006.

    So is the prevailing thought Richard will resign for this?

    I sure hope so.

    Therein will lie the anchor of the defense.

    Once and for all the statement that the Patriots never pay the highest salary at any position can be laid to rest............

    Point brought out by NEST - our entire D line is now signed through 2009 and 1/2 of them through 2010........WOW

    I'd be interested in knowing how much is guaranteed - but my feeling is, in the "new" NFL with a high cap expected to go even higher in the future, $8 million a season for Seymour is fair market value.

    I have no problem devoting that amount for Sey.

    In fact it might even be a "good deal" for the Pats, as I feel that he makes all the players around him better - making average guys above average, and above average guys outstanding - just by being on the field and commanding the attention that he does, freeing up others to make big plays and limiting what offenses try to do.

    So they money you expend for Sey, you wind up more than saving by having quality "middle class" players assume other roles in the Defense.

    Miguel was one of many who thought the Pats would re-sign Seymour. Miguel and I had been saying they would since before the end of the season.

    So between Brady and Seymour we are taking up what, 15% of the 110 cap next year, which will drop steady. If the pats take a bullet this season on roster bonus, can drop that further. So the deal is not that bad overall. Still plenty of room of a continued strong middle class and a nasty DL for years.

    Not to completely hijack the thread, but Miguel, you rock.

    Keep up the good work.

    Big fan here of the "take the hit this year" school of thought... if we can shave a couple mill/year from salaries by taking a huge hit this year (8 mill total from this year's cap,) we'd still have 8 left for free agents and rookies... tempting as it is to think "cool now let's get Donnie Edwards," it's also tempting to think "sign the core, get who we can (possibly D. Edwards, not necessarily out of the question,) and make this year's run."

    In which case, we get to see what Bam's really made of!
