    "AP reports Dallas Cowboys WR Keyshawn Johnson's future with the team will be decided Tuesday, March 14. If Johnson is on the Cowboys' roster at 3 p.m., he will receive a $1 million bonus. The Cowboys must decide whether to give him the money or release him. Johnson, scheduled to earn a base salary of $1.5 million this season, would like a one-year extension and a raise that pays him between $2 million and $3 million. The Cowboys could pay him the bonus and release him later, but that's unlikely."

    OK, he's not exactly in his prime but he and Belichick supposedly have a good releationship. He was 71-839-11.8 last year and 70-981-14.0 the year before. Givens was 65-795-12.2 and 56-874-15.6 those two years.

    Clearly I'd prefer Givens but Johnson could be an option depending on cost.

    I'd sign KJ is a heartbeat as our #3 receiver.

    I could see Dallas dumping him and making a run at T.O.

    This could be a good replacement for Givens

    KJ is also Eric Moulds best friend. That's an interesting scenario to ponder isn't it?

    Letting Givens go and assuming that Keyshawn and Moulds will be patriots, is like quiting your job because you think you might win the lottery.

    I am not sure I'd want him here...besides the money factor..I do NOT think BB wants players who "want the ball" all the time and complain about it..a wrong move.

    If he has grown up and his "MeShawn" days are over I'd take him.

    No-one's assuming it, it just looms as a possibility.

    No doubt about that. However it's way too early to panic. There's still the draft plus other cuts, whether it's Moulds, Keyshawn, or others, lots of roster changes could come.

    Am I more than a little concerned ? Absolutely. No one cna honestly not be. But the offseason is just getting started.

    They may be playing with fire if they keep ignoring the lack of depth at the RB and WR positions. Signing street-FA's to run and catch the ball isn't a good way to do business.

    The intrigue intensifies...Belichick's other sport is tantalizingly fun.

    He probably knows exactly what the Pats have planned for the position, so he's not stressing it like we are. I worry that he needs plenty of reps to get his timing down w/ new receivers, though I worry less if that new receiver has a Pro Bowl appearance or 2.

    I wonder if the staff likes Bam Childress as a possible #3 or #4 guy. I have no reason to say this other than it's just a thought.

    I would take Keyshawn. And I feel strangely confident that he would be a model citizen. In fact, the more I think about it, the more I like the idea.

    One of the big things we miss with Givens leaving is a decent run-blocking WR. We'd get that in spades with Keyshawn, and he seems to actually enjoy it too. IF BB/SP think his me-days are behind him and has grown up, and could be a solid member of the TEAM, then I'd take a quick swig off the Kool Aid bottle and say "Huzaaaah!".

    He makes the tough catches over the middle too. Yes, I've decided - count me in for sure on the Keyshawn bandwagon.
