    22-25 haven't signed either. Same deal last year, they're discussing the amount of guaranteed money in the final year of the deal. I believe last year every pick in the 1st rounded ended up being 100% guaranteed, no?

    Actually no!. IIRC last year the first 16-18 got all four years guaranteed. Where Hightower was picked the first 3 are guaranteed, but the last year was either not guaranteed or partially guaranteed. Since the AMOUNT of money isn't in question, getting some or all of the 4th year guaranteed is about the ONLY thing that agents can do to earn their money

    Do you really think that the Pats care about Hightower's 4th year. By THAT time, he'll either be gone or extended

    Prior to this season most fan bases would be rejoicing if their first round pick was signed that early.


    Only three weeks to go? It's not worth worrying about until we have less than three days to go.

    No need to be worried, this is normal stuff that happens all the time. As long as he's signed by the time training camp starts, it's no big deal.

    Weeden's agent is likely playing the QB card realizing that he's going to get thrown to the wolves in Cleveland and even if he even makes it he will be way on the wrong side of 30 by the time he sees a second a deal. He probably has a little leverage since they've pissed off McCoy, but then again he can't afford to make the Brady Quinn mistake and miss any time or he may never get a shot at starting again.

    He's negotiating for more minutes and unlimited texting.

    Then it looks like we're in for a hold out. The Pats are too fricken cheap to give in on the unlimited texting. The Chargers give it, the jets give it... it's time the Pats FO gets serious, too. Brady's lucky if he's got one season left in him. The window is closing!

    I agree with the Pats there, the guy is a rookie, he needs to prove himself on the field before he can demand unlimited anything.
