    No big deal....He must have the Patriots record for Special Teams penalties. Honestly, other then a good team guy, is he still that important?

    Re: Per Reiss: Pats to bring back Izzo

    I guess is just like Parcells in this respect...
    VERY loyal to his veterans... who play for the minimum that is.

    We couldn't bring in some 6-7th rd. pick with speed and aggression to play izzo's spot on ST???

    Somebody bigger, faster, and stronger.

    What about Eckel and Ventrone, for that matter? [Didn't Bubba bust a wedge on a KO?]

    I don't get why they just never gave Izzo a multiyear deal for the veteran minimum and some kind of bonus. It would save those of us who sit worried every offseason that we are going to lose the guy.

    Signing a contract does not guarantee a roster spot. He will have to compete during the training camp.

    Why all the Izzo hate? The guy is still a pretty good special teamer and we still have one of the better coverage units in football.

    He's the ST captain, it's very unlikely he'll be released in August.

    chickens huh, that's pretty original
    I think we can do better than a 33 yr. old 5"10 230 lb. who does nothing but play on KO, KR, Punt, and PR.

    If people are upset about us resigning Izzo, I can't wait to see what this board looks like in the off chance we resign Eugene Wilson. This board could implode on itself.

    I think we could go right down the roster and find 45 or so slots where we could do better.

    Well, who knows if they will, but if they do, then I'd have to say:

    I think we can do better than a 27 yr. old 5' 10" 200 lb. safety who does nothing but play on ST and in the dime.

    This re-signing better not prevent the FO from adding youth, size, speed, and esp. talent, to the LB corps. I'll have a haht attack if I see another season start with Izzo, Alexander, (Mays - thank you Bungals), Woods and Chad Brown as our backups.

    In practice, I really don't even consider Izzo a linebacker. When's the last time he saw a snap in-game at the position? Given that, I doubt that the team's plans on addressing the linebacker position are impacted in any substantial way by this move.

    Any time your 7th linebacker is trying to seal the edge against tomlinson you're probably screwed.

    Re: Per Reiss: Pats to bring back Izzo

    If you want Zach Thomas on this team, he is.

    Izzo & Thomas were roomates and best friends when they both played for the Fish. They lived a couple of blocks from my house in an upscale aprtment complex called St. Tropez. Both attended my church (St. Gregory's), too, like good Catholics, showing up for the big holidays!

    If the Pats re-signed Izzo it could have to do with his being here factoring into Thomas' decision to come.

    Just a thought...
