    Great, hopefully he wasn't a waste of Oakland's pick.

    True to his word. The Solder King commanded his subject. :)

    Re: Solder Signed

    Imagine when if and when he goes one on one with Haynesworth?

    That'll be worth the price of admission of preseason.

    And I thought Pat Harlow versus Willie McGinest was fun to watch.

    Re: Solder Signed

    Finally! This is like music to my ears. The heir apparent to Light has been locked in. Can't wait to see what the rook can show us in camp! I'm sure if he messes up, Light and Brady will give him an earful. Aaah the growing pains! ;)

    He needs to be smacked around a bit for holding out as long as he did. :singing:

    Great!...


    Now, learn from some All-Pros and SB champions, do your job, and push the starters for their spots.


    That is all,

    Solder looks like a sissy. Maybe Haynesworth can teach him a good angry face.

    Re: Solder Signed

    Not exactly, but it was something that should have been able to be accomplished a week ago and he would be 5 practices ahead of where we are now. It would have been a true competition for LT.

    BTW- I'll save my 10,000 word missives for after I find out when a REAL practice will take place I can actually see something worth while. Last season you'd get significant practices just about every day during the first 2 weeks of the season. Walk thrus were the exception. Now it seems you have pick and choose.

    BTW- Where is Matt Roth?

    Re: Solder Signed

    The knock on the kid is that he is missing a bit of a mean streak but being a sissy is a stretch.

    Ridiculous that it took this long. Far behind. Hope he can make up the time. Terrible start, terrible agent.

    Yes, a 1 on 1 drill vs. Haynesworth, followed by a 1 on 1 against Wilfork. Although, what if he wins? (Is that good about Solder or bad about Haaynesworth and Wilfork.)

    Re: Solder Signed

    I'd say it would be awesome--AH and VW are established stars who are apparently crushing folks out there so if he can hold them off it means he something special, especially because the biggest concern is that he's still not strong/technically proficient enough to hold off a super strong player

    Re: Solder Signed

    It's good to see he finally signed. Making up for a week of lost time is going to be difficult. I hope he was able to add a little bulk since we last saw him.

    The Patriots and first round pick Nate Solder have finally reached a middle ground in their negotiations, and it appears fans will finally get their first glimpse of him very soon....

    Re: Solder Signed

    Belichick talked at length about how excited he was to have 1st round pick Nate Solder in camp. I didn't get a chance to hear the entire press conference, but from what I read, the accolades were flowing at a rapid-fire pace. Belichick sounds as if he couldn't stop talking about the youngster. Suerlative after superlative, followed by praise and elation.


    "Nate signed, so we had him in today. He'll be out on the field."

    -Bill Belichick
