    Gaffney is a nice WR, the contract was nice as well. One more solid eyar and he will likely get one of these crazy deals next year.

    I would assume a blocking te, but other than that, its time to focus on D...

    Seeing what Brady did with this same group last year.....imagine what he may accomplish in the second year with the SAME group!! Moss y2, Jabbar y3, Welker y2, Jackson y??, Thomas y2, Watson y4, Vrabel y7 (joking)!!

    This teams offense should really rock again....

    Yup. This is great news, too.
    I agree that we could use a good blocking TE.
    Aw hell. Why don't we get a monster tackle.
    With all this receiving talent, we could afford that.:D

    This is Great news.
    Now get a good blocking TE and go ALL DEFENSE in this draft. Maybe draft a LB as well.

    great signing. as others said, wish it was for longer, but his agents probably wisely pushed against that. its a good contract for both sides. allows NE the 2008 season to see if c-jax is worth anything. if he is, they won't need jab.

    and this way jab gets a quick $2MM and still can set himself up for a big pay day in 2009.

    and of course if cjax turns out to be a dud in 2008, pats can offer to extend gaffney.

    I was thinking of that when trying to figure out what our offense will be like in another thread but didn't mention it. Good point. Last year was 1st with Moss, Welker and Washington. Gaffney's first training was last year. He signed in-season I believe in 06. I'm sure we won't score more points. But, I think we will be over 500.

    Works for me. In a perfect world I would have preferred to retain Stallworth because I think he has the talent to be a 1b if anything happened to Randy. But I would have been a lot more concerned if we hadn't re-signed one of them. If Jab gets passed on the depth chart, so be it. If not, thank goodness we bought another year to figure that out.

    I agree... great to have Jab back. Blocking TE and the draft is all D. Oh, and maybe O Lineman as well.

    This is perfect. Our WR corps is pretty much all set now. I'd look for Gaffney to see more snaps a la Stallworth and for Washington and Jackson to make up the rest.

    Perfect. Now let's just get Law and one of the Haggans/Hobson/Morgan type LBs, and then build defensive depth in the draft.

    Yes and more competition for the Oline .. whether by draft or FA.
    But I can see a TE drafted.

    Awesome news. Since it's a contract year for him again in 08, expect a solid year from Gaffney
