    ProFootballTalk.com - DID BUCS’ OFFER COME TOO LATE?

    Considering the horrible source (Mortenson) take that as you will.

    Yep.. would be nice to move on.
    It would have been nice for the pats to leak the info then hold for a day or two before making the deal but that's not BB style, evidently.

    Broncos would of made out ok. They could of traded their 12 to NE and had Cassel. And then turned around and traded Cutler and a pick for Detroits 1. They would of been sitting pretty.

    It would make perfect sense if the offer came in after BB/Caserio had faxed the paperwork regarding the trade with KC into the league office.

    I have a hard time believing this. BB turning down #12? He traded Bledsoe to the Bills.

    I don't believe this whatsoever. Just because he doesn't want to send him to an ex asst?

    I have to say, if this is true, then I were Belichick, I would have reneged on the deal with Pioli.

    #12 versus #34?

    Well, if he saw the Broncos with Cassel as a team that could present a challenge to us, then perhaps it makes sense.

    I thought franchising Cassel in early February was to avoid this exact thing?

    It makes little sense though, why would BB turn down a 1 to take just a 2?

    Let's just move on. The story may or may not be true. And right now it sounds more like speculation than anything else.

    No matter how you slice it, BB got his pocket picked. OK, we move on. But do you think we got the most value available? Me neither.

    Yup. This is correct. I only hope that Pioli realizes how much he ripped us off for and makes it up to us another day.

    I'll be moving on. Crap, we have no choice. But we got robbed and I'm pissed about it. With the 12th pick in the draft we had a shot at drafting DT Bj Raji. We could of then franchised Wilfork next yr with less of a fallout of losing him and aquired 2 1st round draft picks for him in the process. Thus using the money to sign Mankins.

    I know it's done and spilt milk but the possibilities were endless had he decided to be patient for 1 more day instead of taking the first crappy offer that came his way.

    No Jersey Selected

    Well, since you put it that way, we most certainly got snookered. That is a pipe dream at best. Everyone just needs to wait and see how this all ultimately plays out. We won't really know who got the best of whom until after we see how Cassel and Vrabel perform for their new team and how well the Pats do in the rest of free agency and the draft. If BB ends up being on the short end then it only proves that he is human and can make a mistake here and there. For now, I'll let his track record speak for him until then.
