    he is looking for a contract that is better than haynesworths? That is what is being reported by Mort on espn. I just cannot see the patriots trading for a guy who wants that type of contract and would be playing a new position.

    Nope

    I dont believe that runor though, Haynesworth is the premeire dlinemen in the game a position much more expensive than OLB if Peppers wants to be LB he has to know his contract will reflect it.

    If that's what it's going to take, then the Patriots simply can't afford it. </story>

    No way. Team first.

    Wilfork will be the biggest contract on the Pats after QB, assuming we can resign him. Peppers can be somewhere in Moss territory, maybe around 4 years at $35-45M. If that can't do it, then we move on.

    Screw ESPN and their flock of donkeys. Peppers is looking to play in the 34 for a contender. No 34 teams that are contenders can afford to pay him remotely near that.

    I don't trust, read or believe anything mortensen says and we're not giving someone a ridiculous 100 million dollar deal when he hasn't even played a down on the OLB position. It's great we have interest, but we should stick to our "spread the wealth" mentality.

    Nein. He's a frikkin' conversion project, and he knows it. While projections say it will work, on the 10% chance it doesn't we would have a load of angry players and look foolish.

    NEVER happen. Give the cash to Vince.

    Re: Do you still want Peppers if....

    What were people expecting Peppers to want? I mean, he is a top tier D-lineman just like haynesworth. I know they play different positions on the line but Peppers pass rush ability makes him a hot commodity. I know that he is talking about wanting to play in a 3-4 and here that would be at OLB, but I do not think he is going to want less money because of a position change. What type of contract would you want him to sign for here that would make you feel comfortable?

    I already said, something in Moss territory ($10/year), maybe in the 4 years at $35-45M range.

    Lets sign this guy, keep him at DE and trade Seymour at the draft for someone's first next year ..

    I felt that before the Haynesworth deal that he might be too expensive. Now I strongly believe that.

    No. I'd rather see us lock up Wilfork for the long-term before they spent a dime on Peppers.

    Peppers has said publicly he's willing to accept a lower deal to play for a contender

    I guess now we find out if thats true

    Laddy, that's a nasty a lose-lose scenerio as I've read in some time. If there's a knock on Peppers, it's his strength at the point of attack, he's not even close to Richard Seymour as a 3-4 DE.

    Peppers turned down a contract extension from the Panthers that would have made him the highest paid defender in the league. It shouldn't be a shock that he wants to be paid a ton of money.
