Just joined...... I thought the other Pats board I was a member of was the most active, man was I wrong......tons of good, intelligent threads here! A statement for the record: 1. Trade Samuel. Give him the "Deion Deal", and get it over with. He wants to get paid more than they are willing to give him. The team has several players whose contracts will be up either this year or next who will get a deserved pay increase, or will have to be replaced. The money is better spent being spread around.
