    According to Adam Schefter, Asante got a guarantee he won't be franchised if the Pats win a certain number of games or he plays a certain number of plays (didn't say how much). This is similar to the deal Lance Briggs got.

    I thought they conceded.....So what happens if the Patriots are close to the game's won thresthold that allows the Pats to tag him again.....and in that game Asante get's a sure pick 6....does he drop it?.... I think he screwed up in this part of the report "The Patriots also vowed that if they win a certain number of regular-season games –- logically thought to be in the double digits –- then Samuel also will not be a free agent.
    "


    Either way, by and large, we can expect him to walk after this year unless he strikes a long-term deal here, which I wouldn't expect.

    I have to assume that "not" should be erased, otherwise the thing makes no sense.

    In any case, IF this is true does it mean an end to all the posts saying "he was just being a jerk by holding out, he had nothing to gain from it?"

    Simple.

    Samuel if we start winning your ass ain't going nowhere.

    That was most certainly a typo after watching the Adam report it on the NFL Network's Around the League....the video appears on the right side of the link....Its a combination of the Patriots winning a certain amount of games and playing time and hes gone.

    But what happens if we start winning and he plays the percentage of plays? You have two contradictions in that scenario based on that report.

    If this is true, I am disappointed to here it. Personally, I don't think they will franchise Samuel again next year because of the expense, but I would have liked for them to stick to their guns on principle. As history has shown us, you cave to one guy and the next guy is going to want/expect/demand the same thing.

    I got it. :cool:

    If the Patriots made any concession beyond the standard franchise tag, I'll be disappointed. Happy that Asante is back, but the front office shouldn't have budged an inch (if they did).

    True - but its not like this sort of precedent wasn't already set by other teams around the league.

    In any event, it will be be worth it if we win the super bowl.

    If the Pats were going to concede this to Asante, why the hell couldn't

    they do this a month ago and get him to training camp in time?

    Probably because they weren't so confident with the secondary personnel that they already had.
