Sounded like a bright kid. Quick summary. Said NE was his first choice and stop. Wanted to come here from day 1. Him and NE couldn't agree on money for a long term deal. Wants to show NE what he can do and then sign a long term to stay here. Other teams were interested but no blow away offers. Decided his best bet was to get with a winner and show what he can do on the field as opposed to signing a so so long term deal elsewhere and get stuck in a bad situation.
