    Post quickly to get in on the season's first "If he's got anything left in the tank, I'd sign him to a minimum contract" thread!

    I'm thrilled to have football back, there will be all sorts of opportunity to make the Patriots better and I'm hopeful that they take advantage of the opportunities.

    It's so refreshing to see normal news like this, and now all of this "normal" news is going to be compacted into a pair of weeks. Something that is normally drawn out over months will unravel in a turbulent and frenzied period of time.

    The universe is being restored to normal, one tweet at a time.

    Re: Real football news hits the web, from Adam Schefter

    Fans will be flooded with names of released players and wonder why BB didn't go after so and so....

    Let the speculation begin...


    At least we'll have something concrete to bit*h about ;)

    Willis McGahee would have been great before the patriots got Stevan Ridley. Mcgahee was great at the end of games and on the goal line to punch in a TD.

    Exactly, whats the point of having mcGahee if you have Ridley (A third rounder)?

    They have 5 RBs now.. theyre aren't taking 6

    McGahee is one of the most classless individuals in football.

    Very interesting... there's your Kris Jenkins replacement. I suppose it makes sense for the Ravens, between Ngata's versatility and Cody. I wouldn't mind seeing him on the Pats, with Wilfork moving out to DE (as he proved he can do).

    Ok, that's 4 key players they've released, who are they going after?

    Holmes? Nnamdi?

    Going after either would hurt the Jets....

    Have Skins get Holmes and the Ravens get Nnamdi

    We have Green-Ellis, Woodhead, Vareen, Ridley and Clayton.

    Are you saying that you prefer Clayton to McGahee?

    There is place on this squad for a 5th running back who is a veteran.

    I will say Holmes. Though they also need help in defensive backfield.

    I really like Mason as a player, but earlier this offseason, he called Peyton the best QB and Ed Reed the second most valuable player in the NFL. Hence, I've decided he's too dumb to play for the Pats.

    I worry more about the Ravens improving via FA than the Jets. Sad to say we lost to the Jets because we were out-coached, not beaten by superior on field athletic talent.

    to clear 18.6 of cap space


    Ravens release Mason, Heap, McGahee, Gregg

    Ravens informed WR Derrick Mason, TE Todd Heap, RB Willis McGahee, and NT Kelly Gregg of their release.
    Combined, the moves save $18.6 million in base salary, and all four cuts clear significant room under the salary cap. The flurry of salary slashes makes us wonder if Baltimore is gearing up for a run at free agent Nnamdi Asomugha, who could not only shore up the Ravens' secondary, but serve as an excellent mentor to first-round pick Jimmy Smith. Mason, 37, caught 61 passes for 802 yards and seven touchdowns last season. He still has value as a possession-slot type receiver, but the Ravens already had too many of those.

    They'll definitely re-sign Heap and Mason.

    Mason and Gregg would be nice additions to the Pats. Mason is not strictly a possession receiver.

    More importantly, he's an idiot who didn't want to come to New England. If he's seen the light, great. If not. . . . :rolleyes:

    One other thing: I would have been a lot more excited about Todd Heap being released 12 months ago. Now, meh. What a difference a GRONKnandez makes. :D
