Insider article: http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/insider/columns/story?columnist=pasquarelli_len&id=2391669 Not exactly shocking stuff but he did at least talk to a Pats official and get a quote (although anonymous) which is light years ahead of anything the local media has accomplished this off-season. "one high-ranking Pats officials noted this week that the team does have a plan for investing those cap funds, and that one element of it is an attempt to sign defensive lineman Richard Seymour and wide receiver Deion Branch to long-term contract extensions. "It's going to cost a lot of money to do those two things," said the official. "And I don't know that we'll get it done. But I know this: We have to plan as if we'll get extensions finished with those two, and we have to have the money set aside, because it's going to be expensive."
