Historically players have always either looked for the warm weather, big dollars and many other reasons why NE wasn't destination #1. Now though its become obvious both veterans and young guys want to come and play for BB. Armstead and Demps were both very desired UDFA and they both picked NE. Veterans have been coming here for years now hoping to get the elusive SB ring. With that said when talking about what it's worth to retain players like Welker, Talib and Vollmer if they aren't willing to sign with us under a deal that is good for all included do we really want them here? This is a place where you have a chance to win every year I cannot name many other places like that for a NFL player.
