I am not sure if this is a repost if so sorry i looked and could not find a similar thread. Jan 26th PVN Samuel: was described as being played the last game in the patriots uniform and did not look or sound positive.He was just like "great place,my home,great friend " yada yada .....the usual stuff.All he said was he is going to talk to Bill and see what is going to happen but did not sound or look positive. Graham:Wore a suit ! and for the first time in a interview he went out to say he is going to talk to the management and is going to work out something as he would love to stay here.Sounded very positive .Maybe it is the agent line , but he sounded very positive. Now i can contrast with other interviews of graham were he sounded rude /tough and mad.I think being a captian and working with brady is key.Also , brady on WEEI speaks alot about him and after dan.I see a trend where the pats keep players around who have earned brady`s trust.A little mending for deion.Even though its a business ,i am sure BB/Scott know that you got to keep brady happy. franchise numbers : samuel - 7.9 million - Graham - 4.4 millon. In a pure cap prespective graham is doable and afforable. Others: Banta cain - Might come back but their was no interview and they just said he is a good player a 7th round pick that started every reg season game this year. Seau - Sounded positive that he will be back for a year .They showed a few of his plays and he will be in rotation as usual and at 1 million is a steal. Troy - Again sound like he will be back for 1 more season as he is very valued by BB/Scott/Kraft as their is always a spot for him in the roster. Not a whisper about Heath evans - worries me. ****personal note if we win another SB next year we are going to see a few retirements.
