    Perhaps he's looking for money we just ain't got...... He's be a great pick up though.

    Bodden left without a deal

    Read in the Globe he left without a deal. I hope Cassel 14 mil does not hurt the Pats in the free agent market. They can not set still while the Jets get better.

    I have no doubt he will find more money elsewhere. The cassel situation is hurting the pats one player at a time. I hope they resolve it before they lose out on more quality players.

    Me thinks he won't be back. Too bad, he could've helped us and helped himself. Oh well. Who's next?

    Did Bodden fail BB's film test?

    Did Bodden want to much money?

    Is Bodden not a good fit for the Pats clubhouse?

    Answer = OTHER

    His agent knows that Tampa Bay has a boatload of cash to spend and they need a young quality corner.

    Cassel's large cap hit is going to kill any big free agents coming here. I hope they can get a deal soon. The Jets are getting better. I hope the Patriots can get something for Cassel and fill a few spots.

    Probably wants too much money. Let's face it if you leave a meeting on the first full day of free agency, chances are that you are not going to sign with that team.

    Re: Reiss: Bodden leaves Foxborough with no deal.

    It's too bad that Bodden left and I agree with the poster in another thread who worried about the "Foxworth effect". When Domonique Foxworth gets the deal he got from the Ravens, Bodden probably expected to receive a similar (or larger) deal.

    Hopefully, we will find a CB in free agency, but I don't see the Patriots paying 6-7 million a year for any of the available corners.

    I talked to him a few days ago, and he said he "wouldn't mind" playing for the Patriots, after I asked him.

    Its not even the Foxworth effect. Its the Kelvin Hayden effect. The friggin Colts gave that guy a ridiculous contract. And its trickled down from there.

    Removing my fan goggles for a second, you can't really blame the guy. He stands to make 4-6 per year somewhere else considering the MeAngelo Hall deal. He was a UDFA, meaning he got close to the bare minimum for the league in his first contract go-around. NFL stands for Not For Long, so consider the earning potential for a 27 year old. Ultimately, he needs to maximize his personal revenue inside of 5 years and live off of that. So, in my mind, he can't be vilifed for moving towards the money.

    That's not neccessarily true. Besides, Bodden has been a free agent for a couple weeks now since he was cut. As far as I know, the Pats are his first and only visit. It doesn't seem that the Pats have to rush to sign the guy. It doesn't look like he is a high priority for a lot of teams.

    Re: Reiss: Bodden leaves Foxborough with no deal.

    With the Vrabel trade, the Pats will be about $9 million or so under the cap. Plenty of room to sign a Bodden type of player. They can restructure contracts too. The Pats don't seem all that interested in the big free agents anyway.

    But why should they use their cap space on a CB?

    At the end of the day, if he was onlyabout the cash, he should never have visited. Who associated with the NFL does not know that BB is the antithesis of Danny Syndor.
