    The Patriots are apparently playing hardball with Waters:

    In other words, he's in the same boat as Mankins would have been if he failed to report in 2010: still one full season away from FA.

    Since the trade deadline has passed, the only way Waters will be playing for a team in TX next year is if he comes to NE for the remainder of this season.

    So, of course, Jason Whitlock says this:

    every time Jason Whitlock opens his mouth, millions of toilets around the country flush in unison...

    is Whitlock the same clown who wrote about "sipping chilled grey goose with Ty Law in the early morning hours" after he had signed with KC a few years ago?

    Glad to hear PAts are playing hardball here - they should.

    Waters has made enough money to last him and his family a lifetime,if he was so truly still in love with the sport he would have come to the Pats TC and played this year.

    I think Waters is tired of the rigors of the NFL and is ready to move on to life without football.

    Besides,what has our OL shown so far that makes any of us care anymore if he shows up again or not?....Donald Thomas has been a pleasant surprise for us and others on the roster have helped considerably.

    I am A LOT more confident in pass protection than I was 8 weeks ago.

    Well nothing is below none. But between slim and none, you have powerball winning lottery ticket odd.

    The only way i see him changing his mind is the allure of a superbowl ring and that window is quickly closign on him being effective/helping the team for the home run.

    I hope they're fining him as well as playing hard ball.

    Lost all respect for the guy when he agreed a pay rise then demanded more, hope he doesn't show up either - the line is doing fine without him.

    I think we can be sure that the Patriots will be looking at this situation with the usual clinical business sense.

    I think Waters is basically retired from the NFL - and it would set a dangerous precedent for the Patriots should they allow Waters to renege on his contract.

    They're not "letting him renege," per se: that would be them releasing him from his contract.

    Wouldn't mind trading his rights to Houston or Dallas to recoup some of the draft picks we've lost in recent days (and years).

    So he hasn't retired, so we can assume he still wants to play - in Texas.

    If he doesn't report or get activated within the next two weeks (to get an accrued season), maybe an offseason trade since the Pats will still hold his contractual rights for next year. A late round pick or two could help replenish rounds 4-6 for the Pats in next years draft.

    At this point it'd be hilarious if we won a Superbowl and then the day after traded his rights away.

    I doubt anyone will give up a pick for a guy his age who decided to stay home, and sat out a year and is now a year older when he is already at retirement age.

    I think the Patriots thought they had a verbal deal with Waters. The deal would pay him close to 4 million dollars if he was active for all the games.
    Waters reneged on the deal and hoped the Patriots would release him to
    sign with a Texas team.

    Early on, Waters absence hurt due to all the injuries on the offensive
    line. Now, the Patriots could care less if he shows up at all and if
    he does the 4 million deal is off the table. No way they release him
    at this point in time.

    The same odds I'd give Lloyd Christmas and Mary Swanson getting together.
