    Are there any other notable unrestricted or restricted free agents that we should know about besides Givens.

    Obviously the retirement issue may come up in regards to players like T.Brown, W.McGinest, or T.Bruschi, but I don't think any of the three will retire.

    I would really like to re-sign Neal. And while I'm at it, for him to develop into a backup Center.

    Yeah, I'd like to bring back Neal and Troy. The other guy we could lose is Vinatieri. I'm not sure we can afford to franchise him again at a $3 mil cap hit. I would expect the Colts to try and make a run at him, considering Vanderjerk is a UFA and there's no way he's coming back.

    I think Adam's smarter than that. No way he makes up the revenue from endorsements with a small bump in salary if he goes elsewhere. At least, I hope he's smarter than that.

    Hope that they take care of Vinatieri. Cant afford to have him leave

    I would think that Parcells would love to have Adam on his team.

    Vinatieri in Dallas

    I expect Parcells would love the opportunity to snag a clutch kicker. BB needs to resolve this situation this off season. Bonuses can only be spread over 4 years I think, so he'll need to be creative.

    I'd like them to keep G Neal, CB Scott, LB Chatham, and one of either WR Dwight or WR Davis.

    Of course, that's assuming that Vinatieri wants to stay more than four years. . . . But then, he's a kicker. He could probably play until his mid-40s if he wanted to. :)
