    Has to go through waivers. I bet he goes to dolphins or jets, since tannenbaum has heard of him. Source pft.

    Too bad he carries a big cap number.

    I agree that he will pass through waivers. He has $2.4 million left on his contract this year. He is no longer a starter. That is too much foe 8 games for a back up who will have to learn a new system.

    If he passes through waivers would we be able to sign him as a FA then? If so, what the hell, sign him to the vet min and give him a shot. He could at least provide competition for the young guys.

    I don't know. Never been a huge fan of Chambers. Always thought he was way overrated. I wouldn't be upset if the Pats signed him for the veteran minimum (even if they throw in some incentives to boot), but I don't think I would be any more upset if the Pats don't even consider it.

    Pats are already into Galloway and Lewis for a draft pick and a couple mil. Edelman looks very good, and they must think highly of Tate to put him on the roster. Both these guys have been studying the system since TC. Chambers would slow the development of the younger guys if he played. We do not have anyone as big and strong as Chambers, but I would guess there is little interest there.

    I dunna know either. Contract issues aside, the guy is an NFL-receiver. I was just flipping though some of his playoff performances with the Chargers and hes done pretty darn well.

    No clue if he know/can learn this offense.

    ??? What young guys? The only young WR on the roster is Edelman who doesn't need competition to try harder, and anyway, it isn't exactly a "what the hell" situation. You'd have to cut one of our current team members to sign Chambers.
