I have some items to think about if Randy gets claimed off of waivers. I am basing these comments based on previous observations and previous comments from different people. The questions include: 1. What happens if Randy decides not to report to any team who claims Randy via waivers? Will he be fined and what can the acquiring team do? 2. Does acquiring team get the third round draft choice the Patriots supposedly would have received in 2012 if Randy goes elsewhere via free agency? I recall some people stating that we eventually gave Randy away for nothing since we would have received a 2012 pick if he left at the end of the season. 3. Can the acquiring team franchise Randy at the end of the season? I recall the Vikings had a deal to let him go to FA at the end of the season for showing up. 4. How are the above items impacted if Randy clears waivers? My crystal ball: Randy is going to hold out if another team claims him. First, Randy can get more money this season if he clears waivers. Second, I think Randy wants to get back to New England. I am unsure if the Pats would take him back but you never know.
