this just dawned on me that if he played like crap last year we still wouldnt have made the playoffs we would have a better draft pick and he wouldnt be getting 14 mil. Now im as big of a pats fan as anyone but we didnt make the playoffs and if we hang onto him we have no money to even sign our draft pics and more thn likely will have to cut a couple valuable pieces. I def think we are going to trade him but then i again im not coach bill so i dont know. It just stinks not to know how this is going to pan out but he isnt worth taking up 14 mil of our cap whether he is the starter opening day or not. What does everyone else think? Its one thing if we made the playoffs and superbowl with cassel but we didnt!
