    Osgood pays tribute to Moss, Patriots - Extra Points - Boston.com

    Could this guy who is sort of like a Josh Cribbs be a consideration to play as a #3 or #4 here?

    3 Pro Bowls in 6 seasons shows me he is a special type of player and with being a STs ace and a viable WR he is just what we look for in a player.

    Word out is that he is not crazy about Norv Turner and he was raised in the Boston area - Sounds like a perfect guy to go after and one that won't cost a fortune.

    So Wilfork is off giving his Pats cap away eh?..sign of things to come? :0

    I would think it would be nice to see him with a Patriots cap on ....for real next time :)

    according to asante, the pats don't care about their players, so free agents won't come here.

    He should never see the light of day on offense. Special teams? I'd love to have him aboard!

    I'd love to have Kassim Osgood on the team, but don't know how realistic it is. Sam Aiken is essentially a poor man's Kassim Osgood, and I don't think there is room for another WR who is primarily a special teamer on the roster.

    I don't believe that Sam Aiken has a guaranteed job. He was outplayed by both Lockett and Arrington on special teams last year. As for WR, I'm pretty sure that half the people in this forum could catch more passes than he did.. :rolleyes:

    If the Pats can upgrade Aiken and get someone who could see some time on passing downs, then great. And Osgood did well for himself under Schottenheimer when called upon.

    Now, that being said, Osgood is also the guy who wanted to be traded prior to the start of the season and complained about his playing time in San Diego.

    Kick returning, WR depth and return coverage is the least of the Pats problems? Guess you haven't been paying attention to the same Pats team.

    I watched more than you

    I wouldn't sweat the special teams with the defensive unit we currently have........we could pin opponents inside their 5 every time and BB would still be going for it on 4th down at his end of the field when he has the lead

    you can't sweat special teams when YOU CAN'T EVEN FIELD A DEFENSE....and right now, the pats can't even put a group of LB's on the field........2 of the 4 guys they have under contract right now have never played because of injury

    yeah......special teams is a need, but that's like worrying about the roof when you don't have a foundation

    need a speedster and a jack of all trades as a KR/PR/Flex guy.. I think Gilyard fits that bill.

    are you serious??

    this guy is good, he is a solid reciever, not a stud reciever, but a reciever. And is crazy on STs, and is Cheap.
    I would love to have him.

    IIRC correctly, Osgood was *****ing in the offseason a few years ago because he wanted to be given a shot at WR instead of used exclusively for ST. My guess is he will go to a team that will best give him that shot. But yeah, basically he is a better version of Sam Aiken.

    He and Sam Aiken play different special teams positions. For instance, Osgood is a punt team gunner while Aiken is a personal protector.

    he has 2 punt returns in he's Career. and i don't know if he ever returned a kick. he has 5 rec in the last 5 years. so he is not a WR. he is just a gunner. he is pretty much larry izzo, the pats all redy have a good kick and punt return covrage team. he is going to get paid at lest 2 million a year. from san diego. or some other team. just to be a gunner.


    the pats have a lot of draft picks and most of them will be ST players so there is no need at all for Kassim Osgood,

    If the price is right I want him aboard, if Aiken is a poor man's Osgood than Osgood would be an upgrade.

    Bring him on!

    Aiken was bad this past season. Bring in Osgood to push Aiken at # 3 WR. Osgoods highest numbers were when SD was LT heavy on offense. I'd like to see Brady throwing him the ball in the spread.

    For everyone who posted the Pats could use Osgood as a "KR/PR" type, or even as a WR, consider this:

    He has zero career kick returns.

    He has two career punt returns.

    He's 6-foot-5.

    He has 5 career receptions.

    He's the best special teamer/gunner in the world, but he's not a returner, or a wide receiver. Period.

    Sure.

    Any idea when or if he can stay healthy? Tate was injured his 1st game coming back from an injury.

    He had 28 receptions in his first 2 seasons with San Diego. Not huge numbers, but he averaged over 20 yards per catch those years. But you're right, he's great at one thing, and hasn't done much in other areas.

    You really dont tell the whole story.

    Osgoods first 2 seasons 03 and 04 with Drew Brees at QB he did quite well with 28 rec - 586 yards - 2 TDs. Something happened in 05 and he wound up getting hurt in December and landing on IR.

    QB change to Rivers in 06 and for whatever reason Osgood dropped off the face of the earth at WR.

    I like his attitude.

    ************************
    Agent Drew Rosenhaus writes in his Twitter account that Chargers special teamer Kassim Osgood is willing to play safety.

    Osgood has been dying to shed his "special teamer only" label for years, and strong safety -- the Bolts' weakest link on defense -- isn't a bad idea. Still, at 6'5/220 he'd be one over-sized safety. Osgood remains open to a trade.

    Kassim Osgood

    *************************

    We know:

    1 Osgood would be low risk money wise.
    2 Hes a hard worker and will play special teams.
    3 He wants another chance to prove he can play WR in this league and it sounds like hes willing to put in the work to get there. Some folks thought NE was crazy to want Welker. I mean, he never had a 1000 yard season in Miami.
    4 He would play for NE
    5 He has good hands

    You act like the two things are mutually exclusive. Like somehow trying to improve one means we're NOT going to improve the other.

    Using your analogy, it's like building the foundation, then going to move in realizing you forgot the roof. You can (and need) to have BOTH.

    sure you do........of course you need to pay attention to the entire roster........

    as for the roof analogy......you can always add one to a foundation......hell, you can throw a tarp on top for the time being.

    but field position don't mean squat if your defense is garbage

    Oh,Yeah.....

    How many in here would react positively if Wilfork was seen wearing a Dolphins or Jets cap at the pro bowl?

    :rolleyes:

    The players do a gear trade. In fact you can watch a video of it on NFL.com. They trade team gear with each other, sign autographs, etc.

    It means absolutely nothing and anyone who would be mad seeing Wilfork wearing a dolphins or jets cap after the gear trade would be ridiculous. Especially since the Miami player who gave it to him might very well be sporting his shiny new Pats cap that he got from Wilfork in exchange.

    Kassim Osgood

    He has 33 receptions. He's probably worth bringing on board for ST alone but I'd at least give him a shot as a WR and see how he does. Vrabel was cut from Pittsburgh, just because someone doesn't fit in on another team in a role doesn't mean they can't be successful in it elsewhere.
