Belichick made a dispassionate, analytical CAP decision to re-sign Brady, Wilfork, Gostkowski and Mankins and there was no money for Richard Seymour. Or eventually Moss in 2011. So he traded Seymour. Well Moss is gone, Mankins unexpectedly won't sign, the other re-signings are done. So the pot of money intended for at least one or maybe two of them, (Mankins and Moss) is now available for re-assignment and use. This young Defense needs a RDE, that fits the team, and a leader. A mature vet would be ideal. We could draft one, but Richard Seymour meets all those criteria. He is a Franchised right now, and will be a UFA after this season. We know he can excel in this 3-4 Defense and he is a respected leader, perhaps sobered by a few years seeing how others live. Derrick Burgess acknowledged that he solicited advice from Seymour when the Pats traded for him and Richard said the Pats were a fine place to play, and he bore no grudges. There is no reason not to resign Seymour, then. It is like getting another First rounder, and the Oakland pick can be looked at as a rental fee. The young DLs can have the time to mature behind Richard Seymour, Wilfork and Ty Warren. Then the Pats can afford to use one of the #1s to draft a WR like AJ Green, as well as an OLB like Robert Quinn, by using spare 3s and 4s to trade up. They can use the 2nds for a RB and an Offensive lineman. Team rebuilding is then complete, with young talent everywhere. Brady will have a newly rebuilt Patriots SuperBowl contender for the remainder of his career. If Moss does not get big bucks for a long time, he may be more amenable to resigning for lower money for the balance of his career, knowing that is all anyone will pay. So why not get a Ring and catch passes from Tom Brady? Its obvious that Moss tried desperately not to leave the Pats, and it explains his post Bengals game pleading. But at the same time he is no business fool, and he wanted the money that Bill Belichick no longer thought he was worth, but someone else might. The Vikes are all-in for this last shot in 2010. Moss won't want to start a rebuild in 2011, at this stage of his career; nor would the Vikes likely pay him, while they are doing so. As the French King said: "Apres moi, Le Deluge!" Resign SeyMonsta!! And maybe Moss too. Anybody agree? Did Belichick shrewdly anticipate this when he wanted a 2011 not a 2010 #1 pick from the Raiders?
