I have been a huge pats fan since i was about 13 (1993) and I don't really remember much about the PC years and 1999 in particular - but he had 107 tackles as a rookie - 3.5 sacks as a MLB and an Int for a TD...he had promise..This year would be his 10th in the NFL - do you think he would still be on the team (if not for the injury) and do you think his style would have fit well with the BB 3-4 defense?
