    Per NFLN, they said that Freeney hasn't signed with Denver because he wants to sign on his terms and wants 6 million per year. Denver's interest in Freeney not dead, but slowing down.

    Also, Denver has lost interest in John Abraham.

    Not sure what any of this means for the pats.

    That is laughable....Dwight you're 33 steadily declining and in a "depressed" market...you need to look around.....:cool:

    I wouldn't give him 4 million. But it only takes one team, so good luck! Abraham is rooting for him to get it.

    I've been assuming that we'll have to end up giving one of them 3.5--4 million for a year, unless somehow it could be more incentive laden which I have my doubts on. Maybe even a 2/6 deal with some incentives would be enough, depending on the specifics.

    My personal cost prediction may be off of course, and I obviously hope that it'd be something closer to 3 million, but I've been leery about some of the figures of 2 million--2.5 million etc that posters have been throwing around. I don't think it could possibly be that low, despite the market this year.

    I have the feeling that the Pats have about a 3 million dollar max window they are willing to offer though, with some of that being incentivized for health and production.

    Of course that was one of the reasons why I figured a 99% chance that Dumervil wasn't even being considered in the 'real' world outside of patsfans, due to the cost involved and the overall snaps and participation/fit etc.

    I don't believe he want's 6 million per, Freeney isn't that delusional. But he and Abraham obviously want more than what Denver/NE has be offering.

    Maybe a team will over pay for his services but it won't be the pats. 6 million is about 3 million more than I would pay for him.

    Looks like they didn't get the memo or simply are unable to read it.

    Flat cap boys = no 6mm for you Dwight and John, your an old man. Just take what BB offers and enjoy a year playing for him with Brady + Co. if that doesn't interest you, then off with your head!

    For Freeney's sake, I hope that number has been misreported.

    Nobody thought that Ed Reed would collecting $6M for this year's services (and a total of 3/15).

    In this market, he's going to get about half that. Hopefully Abraham is a little more realistic by now.

    Right. If I'm Freeny, I'd probably set the price high too, and then go from there. I just hope this doesn't jeopardize either one of those options in NEP uniforms, as Abraham may dig in a bit more after hearing this.

    Do we even have any cap space anymore ? I believe Vollmer got a pretty big salary.

    On another note, I also saw Abraham is "pretty much out of the mix" to land in Denver.

    I don't know what that means for us. Does it mean we're pretty much locked in on landing him, or are they just not interested in general??

    Some poor slob of a team will give it to him, but it won't be a contender.

    And Welker for $5M a year, and Arrington for $2M and Edelman for vet minimum.

    It doesn't matter much what we would like to pay.

    Although I don't see Freeney getting close to that money, I think it would be funny that the Broncos lose Dumervil and end up having to pay Freeney $6 million a year.

    Wouldn't mind having Freeney on the team as a pairing with Abraham, but certainly not at that price.

    There are a lot of teams that still have significant cap space. It's curious that many of them haven't really done much in FA so far, and one of them could jump into the fray at any time.

    If Freeney wants $6M per, he can go join Adalius Thomas, wherever he is, in waiting for a contract that's good enough for him.
