    I found this article from a Packers forum the article is from PFT (no sure who they are) What do you make of this.

    PATS TO PULL OUT A POISON PILL OF THEIR OWN?



    We always read the e-mails that readers send to us. Not just because we are gluttons for abuse, but because sometimes our readers offer up some pretty good insights.

    And then we can pass them off as our own.
    Case in point. Now that the Seahawks have signed Vikings receiver Nate Burleson to a seven-year, $49 million contract that becomes fully guaranteed if he plays five or more games in Minnesota during any year of the deal, the Seahawks could end up losing kicker Josh Brown if a team signs him to an offer sheet that becomes fully guaranteed if Brown plays five or more games in the state of Washington. By adding several big-dollar phony years onto the end of the deal, there's no way the Seahawks would match.



    So it's possible that the Seahawks have outsmarted themselves.If a team with a pressing need at the position (such as the Patriots) is willing to give up a seventh-round draft pick, they can get Brown by turning the tables on the Seahawks. Also available for such a maneuver is Seahawks quarterback Seneca Wallace, who would command a fourth-round pick as compensation.

    No there was no sheet. PTF is a rumor mill. They hit oil 25% of the time on their rumors. They do have the latest news with links, but this one was a recomendation/rumor. A good thought, but just a thought.

    This is just a theory of what the Pats could do given a need for a PK. The idea - which is essentially something any team could do with any RFA it wanted - and as the Vikings found out have done back to them in return - has already had at least two threads devoted to it.

    Aside from a jerk like Snyder I doubt too many more teams are going to fool with this crap for just that reason. What goes around eventually comes around. We don't have any RFA this year, but next year payback could be a *****. I have a feeling the NFL will undertake to close this loophole Tom Condon discovered PDQ.

    He's worth signing to an offer sheet, poison pill or no poison pill.

    BB should sign Josh Brown to an offer sheet now with a clause like Seattle and Minnesota have been using. Make it creative like Brown can't play more the five regular season or playoff games against an NFC West opponent at home or on the road, this way Seattle couldn't match the offer and it would cost the Pats only a 7th round pick as compensation. :)

    The NFLPA would lose in arbitration if the poison pill specified "5 or more games in Washington."
