    Not a surprise, but just another hole to fill.

    Re: Gay is gone!

    Not surprising, althought THAT contract is a little too much imo. He hasn't shown much beyond being a nickelback from what I've seen.

    Re: Gay is gone!

    hey don't say that. you have nothing to complain about.

    Gay played his butt off here and got paid crap every year.

    You should remember what he did in the superbowl as a free agent rookie corner.

    Re: Gay is gone!

    The Pats continue to "lose" players that they have made no serious indication that they wanted.
    Is a player lost when you chose to no longer want/require his services?

    Re: Gay is gone!

    All I can say is we will have a lot of new players on the team next year.
    Maybe 4/5 rookies on the team.

    Re: Gay is gone!

    Yup, some of these NFL GM's are acting like a kid with money burning holes in his pockets...

    Really, since when is NE's 3rd CB, who's been on the injured reserve multiple times, and got burned a few different times by 3rd/4th WR's in 2007 worth $4.45M per year?

    If that is that market, then I'd gladly hang on to the money and draft some of the top level CB's out of this years draft class. Chevis Jackson should go in the third round, and he'll be a better pro CB than Randall Gay.

    Re: Gay is gone!

    This signing has the same feel as the David Givens signing by Tennessee a few years ago. A real nice pay day for a JagPlus type player

    A hearty congratulations to Mr. Gay, who got overpaid AND got to go home. Best of luck to him in any game not being played against the Patriots.

    Re: Gay is gone!

    I for the most part enjoyed his time as a Patriot, good luck in the future.

    Didn't want him back on the team though, upgrade needed.

    It's always good form to crap on ex-Pats who sign elsewhere.

    Re: Gay is gone!

    $4.5 million? Wow, holy crap. Good for him that he was able to get that kind of money from anyone. Simply wow...

    I am sure he also wanted to go home as he played college ball at LSU. I thought he was horrible, but apparently some organization (Saints) felt differently.

    Good for him. The kid worked hard and was an UDFA and now he gets a big payday. I'm glad for him.
