    This “no Jerod Mayo signing” stuff got me to thinking about the dates some of the Patriots’ recent first-round picks officially inked their deals and the lengths of their rookie contracts. Here’s what I found…..2007: Defensive back Brandon Meriweather signed a five-year deal on July 27, 2007.2006: Running back Laurence Maroney signed a five-year deal [...]

    He was injured in the 1st reg season game on his 2nd career catch, so he really had no chance. It was a knee injury suffered when tackled.

    Watson was injured the first game of the season and went on IR. Who knows how he would have done his rookie season.

    As long as he's out on the field on Sunday, it's OK by me.

    He probably wouldve fallen down everytime he caught the ball like he does now. So frustrating...

    I have a good feeling about Mayo and appreciate the way the Pats do business but from a league prespective rookie salaries are a very big deal and something needs to be done asap. See Loomis comments below.... Nevermind the Favre situation, this is an issue Commish Gang Green needs to get involved in asap. The future financial health of the league is at stake if this situation continues.

    It's true. Look around, not only Mayo but a lot of rookies in the first round have not been signed. This **** needs to stop. These young guys need to EARN their millions and stop getting it handed to them.

    Excellent article, Mr. Price, but I must note THE SKY IS FALLING THE SKY IS FALLING! It's the 24th of July! It's a long-running holdout situation with no end in sight!!!!

    Chances are virtually nil that Mayo will be in camp, Colvin's gone, and Bruschi and Vrabel are collecting social security and could leave the team to play mah jong in Miami at any moment!

    Also: Tom's distracted by women and a baby, Bill's distracted by a MILF, Randy is smug and dogging it after setting records last year, the O-Line is a bunch of turnstiles, the secondary's just a vacuum, and of course...

    wait for it...

    wait for it...

    Laurence Maroney is made of glass!!!!

    :eek:

    Blame his agent for the missed time (Who he dumped and then took the Patriot offer).
