    Ian's Daily Blog - The Boston Herald reported on Tuesday that the Patriots are expected to give linebacker Pierre*Woods a second-round tender, just as they did last season. According to the report the deal would pay him $1.759 million in 2010, which is a raise from the $1.545 million he received in 2009. Odds are pretty good that should be enough [...]

    As long as he doesn't see any snaps in the regular defense and is strictly limited to special teams, then fine. Otherwise, send him packing........He doesn't belong in the league.

    Could you image BB glee if another team actually signed him?

    Undrafted LB plays four years as a solid special teamer with spot defensive duties, then gets recycled for a 2nd round pick? Pretty good ROI if you ask me, even without the pick.

    Never happen though. No one is giving a 2nd for Woods.

    I don't want him to be a starter either, but I don't have a problem with him as a back-up. His been in the system for a while now and is familiar with it.

    Why, in the name of my new Lord & Master Satan (and I don't mean Miroslav) why? Why, for Ganja's sake, why?

    The time to take out the trash is long overdue, Bill - starting with Alexander & Woods.

    Wow, you don't have a problem with him tendered with 2nd round money?

    He's a stiff, he has no business being on the roster. It's time to part ways with this guy, he did enough damage in the superbowl to last a lifetime. I'm actually shocked he wasn't released right after that game.

    He's getting paid 1.8 million and is a serviceable back-up with playing experience in this type of defense. On top of that, he also has some value as a STer. Considering the amount of money the Patriots have to work with this offseason, I don't see a problem here.

    Just because Garcon can run a mean hitch doesn't make him an automatic fit in our offense.

    Why do we pay him so much money if he never sees the field? Why wasn't he playing over the useless AD just to get some experience? How does BB think these guys will develop if they never see the field? It's weird.

    Woods is a special teams guy and career backup, and he's fairly competent in that role. He's not a starter, nor will he ever "develop" into one.

    Well can't you pay another street FA half of that salary to do the same damn job as "Mr. Can't hold onto a historic game changing fumble" ? Send him packing.........All done with Pierre Woods.

    That sounds like an awful lot of money for a guy who's a decent Special Teamer, but let's face it, he ain't Mosi Tatupu either. And he had a chance to step up on D last year and couldn't.

    I was a big fan of his potential coming out in the draft and mentioned his name as UDFAs I'd like to see in a Pats uni. But now, after a few years in the system he's shown himself to be a jag at best, and IMO that's too much for what Woods adds.

    This would guarantee that Mankins will be receiving at least the first-round tender (the second highest).

    If they tender Woods at the second-round level, and tendered Mankins at the lowest tender (original round compensation), the CBA says all they can get if they lose Mankins is a second.

    Agreed.

    The situation is the same as last year. There is no reason to create an additional hole.

    This is the way you explained it to me in another thread:

    So based on that explanation, they can still tender Mankins at the low number if they don't offer 1st round tender to anybody else. Offering a 2nd round tender to Woods would then not affect it. Right?

    I realized that, yeah, the CBA would allow this.

    Nevertheless, if they tender Woods at a second, I can't see any way they're going to tender Mankins or Gostkowski at less than that, as both are worth significantly more to the team than Woods.

    Agreed, he's definitely a capable backup.

    I think I'll trust BB's judgement on that a little bit more than yours, no offense.

    Yes. They'd have a tough time justifying a lower $$ tender to Mankins. However, they may not have to justify it. They can just make it and tell Mankins "hey bud, that's the way the CBA works. If you think you can get more $$, go get it". As for Gost, he's a kicker, so the pay scale is different. A 1st round tender is almost as much as a transition tag for a kicker.

    Do so at your own peril. When's the last time that The_Riddler lost a game as the head coach of the NEP? That's what I thought: the guy's undefeated.

    I completely agree.

    A much-needed WR who is familiar with our offense isn't worth $900K but a useless weakling like Woods is worth a 2nd-round tender? Bill is getting closer to Al Davis Land every year.

    No problem at all, I don't drink the KoolAid like a few do around here where everything BB does is perfect. The truth is the truth. The eyes don't lie and my eyes tell me that Pierre Woods isn't worth a bag of used footballs. He has CFL written all over him. Why this guy is worthy of a 2cond round tender is something that will really have to be explained to me by one of the KoolAid guys around here because I just don't see him anywhere near that kind of money.
