    It's certainly refreshing to see players leave the right way.

    Re: Gaffney: "I loved New England and being a Patriot"

    We picked him up off the steets and saved his financial future and his career. TB tends to make people lots of money as we know, ask any of the wideouts that have left for greener pastures. For that, Jabs's is humble and he's grateful. Jabs is a great guy and he'll definately be missed. He's had some big catches for us in 2.5 years.

    I'm sorry to see him go, Colts game muff and all. He has made some wonderful catches and, clearly, he's a class guy.

    He made some great catches, like the indy afc championship game, or the one against miami where he stole it away from the defender.. He is going to be missed...:mad:

    Without that fingertip catch in the endzone in Baltimore, 15-1.

    Loved the guy and wish him well, just never against the Patriots.

    For a guy the Pats picked up off the streets, he turned out to be pretty valuable. He was great in the '06 playoffs, and had 2 good seasons as the 3rd/4th receiver. He made his fair share of big plays for the Pats. I'll miss him.

    Ya, I think BB got the most out of his ability and Gaff was able to make some money. It will be interesting to see how his career goes from here. He's probably the 4th reciver on the team right now but knowing the offense should give him a jump.

    The miami catch was amazing and so was the balitmore one. The indy miss sucked but you can't catch them all. I am glad that he came to Denver (better here than anywhere else) so I can still watch him play every week.

    I appreciate his effort, it was a good 2 1/2 years while he was with us. Didn't we pick him up during the 06 season?

    He was solid for us, wish him all the best. Normally you expect a WR production to go down when they leave this team but with JM and the pass attack they have in Denver I think he'll put up the same kind of #'s.

    Re: Gaffney: "I loved New England and being a Patriot"

    he was great in 06 postseason, the baltimore 07 catch, etc -- but last year's drops were pretty memorable

    also remember when he first signed, he talked about how his wife had a crush on brady :)

    Please, please don't tell me Reche is coming back now :p

    (PS, I actually loved that guy too, as well as Jabar... there's just something about guys that go out and give it their all, even when they're not "elite", and then say good things on the way out the door.)

    Welp, guess we've cleared out room for Marvin Harrison now.

    KIDDINGGGGG

    Mega-Speculation/Rumor on another WR trade thread

    Schefter and Mort both think no deal for Jackson

    they make a good points about not doing it, since he is one screw up for getting a year ban, but this does not make sense why this has happened this year..

    Re: Shefter and Mort both think no deal for Jackson

    Right it makes no sense. You get a 3d for Moss, and then turn around and trade, what, 2 2's for half a year of VJAX. No thanks. The thing that makes the most sense is to fill the Moss void with Green/Jones/Baldwin in the draft.

    Re: Shefter and Mort both think no deal for Jackson

    Sounds like Moss was turning into a malcontent.
    Why would we want to replace him with another one like Jackson, anyways?
    It's all good guys. The Patriots will survive this.

    Jackson is a pisstank ..... no thanks.

    And Moss had more TD's in 1 season than VJ has in his entire career! Pass!

    Pats should see if the Bills would trade Lee Evans.

    Re: Shefter and Mort both think no deal for Jackson

    schefter has been reporting the nfl like a clown recently. he's been 'stealing' stories from jay glazer, and apparently per glazer it started a 'twitter war'.

    the 'war' resulted in adam schefter blocking jay glazer.

    i understand jacksons background, but you guys think he would act like an ******* around Bill Belichick, and Brady? no way.

    Around Norv Turner? HAHAHAHA.

    two 3rd round picks for 2011.

    Re: Shefter and Mort both think no deal for Jackson

    When Schefter tweeted last night he cited Fox

    From Schefter

    As FOX reported, Randy Moss trade in play. Vikes-Pats talking; Vikes-Moss are not. Deal possible, but not imminent, not at 9:30 ET.

    Are you sure about that? He has been invisible this year with the Bills.
    Not even their number one receiver.

    I thought putting on a Bills uniform automatically made one invisible?

    You are talking about a team with a sucky Qb, Sucky O-line, no wonder he hasn't done much...It doesn't mean he isn't a great player...I would take him...

    Re: Shefter and Mort both think no deal for Jackson

    As mentioned here, he is one infraction away from being suspended for a year. Despite his talent, there is no way a team could invest in a long term contract while giving up 2 2nd rounders with that hanging over their heads.

    Is another deal in the works?

    With all of this going on and getting everyone's attention, is it possible the Pats are working on a deal to bring someone else in? Are there any other big name disgruntled receivers out there looking for trades? Probably dumb but just a thought.
