    It's repeatedly been stated in various legitimate papers that the Pats have agreed to release him, so...

    and the papers have never been wrong right. could the agent be trying to force the patriots hand by saying that the pats have agreed in turn making them look bad if they don't?

    Not nearly as often as pfffffftrumormill. So we should believe the source that's almost always wrong over the sources that are almost always right?

    Sounds logical to me.

    no you should go with the one that satisfy's your own needs. PFT says corey may not be gone yet and that sounds good to me.

    but seriously I think corey is gone but the PFT thing makes you say hmm

    He will have to make a settlement with the team and I would not be suprised that BB makes some kind of deal to keep him out of the east.

    If you go up to a random NFL person and say: "Do you think BB will let one of his players walk away from his contract?" the answer, of course, is no.

    If you ask that same person: "Do you think BB will cut Dillon if his upcoming bonus is larger than his value to the team?" the answer will be yes.

    The guy who wrote this was probably ignorant of the terms of Dillon's contract, and asked the wrong question.

    If Dillon was worth the bonus he is due, there is absolutely no question that the Pats would keep him.

    RUMORMILL not a major newspaper reporting something, so thats shocking that they might be wrong sometimes because its a rumormill. its not like PFT is trying to be a major source they repeatedly admit that they just report rumors, and are not always right:rocker:

    #12 Jersey

    A far as the Bills or the Jests signing Dillon, all I can say is, please be my guest! Dillon's finished as any kind of significant contributor, plus he's apparently got in his mind he needs a certain number of carries so it follows the that signs him will have the albatross around their neck of having to live up to promise of letting a rapidly aging RB lug the ball more than he should be. Buffalo? Dillon in place of McGahee, are you kidding? Dillon would be like a ten fathom anchor on that offense and pull it right to the bottom - I can only hope for such things!

    NYJ? No way, Mangina might have plenty of respect for Corey but he needs a young power back, not another Barlow in the making. Dillon may present the idea he's got a grudge to settle with the Pats for not giving him the rock enough but a player's dream world is not the place a successful personnel pro resides.

    Cleveland, yes. Raiders, oh yes. The Pats are going to cut the dude, deal or no deal!:singing:

    I agree. That's why I believe Reiss over them. Is there a point I'm missing here?

    exactly , there's no way they should be afraid if facing him. afterall he'll be decent in the first quarter and won't see him for the 2nd or 3rd.

    No Jersey Selected

    Nice insights w.r.t the reaction of other teams to Dillion. But I think he will want to go out after putting in a commendable performance especially considering that he can move up in the record books. That, and given the fact that he is no slouch, might interest Mangina if he think he will not be able to find a suitable one this year. Let's see.
