    Good. And hear me out. If they sign him to a cheap deal, it helps us a lot. It could pay huge dividends. We've seen first hand how freaking unstoppable a offense littered with WRs is. Booker just makes the WR bullet proof. I wouldn't pay much for him at all though.

    I guess they really want this guy to play opposite Moss.

    i wonder if bringing in booker would spell the end of gaffney's stay here
    booker is mainly a possession/blocking guy right?
    that's the role gaffney played, and we usually only like to have one of those types around
    we've always shown a great easiness in finding these cheap...givens, gaffney, booker?

    Yeah, but why Booker? He's getting a little up there in years, right?

    So apparently the career path for your average AFC east player is to play 2 years for the dolphins, get tired of sucking, play a couple years for the Pats, decide you want more money, then get overpaid by the Jets and go back to sucking.

    Re: Per Reiss: Pats to host Marty Booker

    Good - realistically who do we currently have signed at WR?

    Moss & Gaffney are free agents, Stallworth reportedly will be cut - Washington's contract needs to be re-done.

    Sure, we've got Welker and Jackson. But that's it.

    This position needs attention.

    nice sarcasm.

    Maybe this means they will draft a mammoth tackle with their first rounder

    Re: Per Reiss: Pats to host Marty Booker

    Will be 32 in July. He has good size and is athletic. Described as smart and instinctive as well as a solid route runner. He sets up defenders well and uses his body effectivelly to box out defenders. Not that much speed but is a solid rac guy. Strong blocker, simply put a football player that has been pretty consistent over his career. I'd say a solid 2 or 3, probably closer to a 3 at this point of his career.

    I think signing Booker is more likely than signing Thomas. Although both players have done some damage against the Patriots in the past, the Pats can't afford to get older on defense.

    Re: Per Reiss: Pats to host Marty Booker

    I was about to post the same thing. They seem, to me anyway, to be very similar players.

    Booker is younger by about two years.

    Their average yards/catch is comparable, 12.4 vs 13.4 in favor of Muhammad.

    Neither has had a great qb throwing to them the last few years.

    Think if he is part of a rotation with Moss, Welker, Gaffney, and Jackson that it would make a difference?
