    Maybe I missed that part, but where did the Cardinals come from? I didn't even know they were in the picture.

    Let's see... Treesdale Golf & Country Club is next to Pittsburgh, so that's a 1.5 hour flight to Boston then maybe an hour to foxboro so maybe we'll have a signed contract in 3 hours??? :D

    We need F. B. N.

    Maybe Ty's putting sucks and he needs help. If F.B.N. agrees to give him "tips' and lessons, he could sign with the Patriots.

    What do yo say, Nut. Would you be willing to add that perk to get Law to sign with the Patriots?

    I knew this was coming and that is why I started that "My Putting Sucks" thread.:rocker:

    I was wondering the same thing. I thought the Titans and Chiefs were front runners?:confused:

    I dunno.......

    I think we would have a better shot if maybe Ms Faith offered to help Ty with his putter, but that's me

    Interesting in that his agent was the source, leaking this story, pitting one team against another in a final effort in all likelihood to wring as much money from the competing teams as possible

    Still I'm glad to see that NE is still in the running... one would hope that if its actually a multi-year contract he's expressed a willingness to step in at Safety if and when that's necessary in the future... when CB skills begin to erode it happens quickly but many can convert to Safety nicely

    And if AZ gets him, they'll probably find a way to screw it up, but that's a team that has made some solid offseason moves

    That could well be the bulls eye. Very likely there is no contract close, and Poston is trying to create the illusion that there is one, in an attempt for a team like San Diego or Kansas City to come in with a last-ditch, big-money offer. I'd be shocked if Law signs with either of the teams mentioned.

    Has he had trouble driving the ball?

    Yeah - he's probably telling AZ that the Patriots have a 4 year $24 million offer on the table just like he did with KC!

    The funny thing is, a lot of the FA money has already dried up and its a buyer's market - but once training camp starts and injuries begin to happen its a different supply and demand issue... all of a sudden teams losing a starting CB take a look at Ty and make some cuts and salary moves to be able to fit him in out of panic

    Ty stands to do better by waiting to sign until training camp but seemingly wants a deal done sooner rather than later... why?

    Maybe its just me, but I can't picture Ty Law going to Training Camp and living in Arizona in the peak heat season out there. I don't care that they have a new stadium, I just can't picture Law setting himself up to potentially roast living in the desert. I'd figure him for Florida if he wanted to roast in a warm climate.

    I agree that it's Poston flapping his gums to try to drum up offers from other teams. Still feel Kansas City is lurking on the fringe ready with an offer at the "correct" time (but we all know how good Herm is with his clock management skills .:rolleyes:

    Come on, wouldn't any player want to cement his HOF candidacy by spending his final years in Arizona? If he goes there over NE then no one can argue he isn't about the $$.

    Actually Arizona has (it appears) to be turning that dismal team around. They are really putting together a nice team down there. From the last couple of drafts to FA, I like what i see from Arizona

    Doubt the patriots sign him. Too much injury risk and relatively high $ amount for an aging CB who has lost a step.

    Only way he would be signed if he's proven he'll be in good shape instead of the fat chubby CB he was last year. (And yes, I know he had alot of ints, probably b/c they threw his way so much).

    Someone told me that they just heard on WEEI that Ty would make a decission by Friday.

    I called this guy a liar. WEEI could not break away from Red Sox-Yankee talk no matter what happened.

    I have been listening to WEEI and they haven't said anything like that.

    With the trade yesterday and Hochstein's extension, I have a feeling that they will be signing Ty today. They are wrapping up all lose ends in one swoop....just like Michael Corleone.
