    If he was north of 30, ( Vrabel, Seymour, Moss, etc ). Pats don't generally trade youth.

    Yes, Woodhead should be extended after today [pun intended]

    He is locked up being a 2nd year player and at most a RFA.:rolleyes:

    If he keeps up with this kind of play I think he will get a nice tender before free agency.

    I say lock him up... the longer he plays, the more expensive he will get.

    I was unsuccessful in getting a "Rudy" chant going whenever he made a big play.

    Pretty much. Wait until the end of the season. If he keeps up this type of production, then I wouldn't hesitate to offer him a three or four year deal. We could be looking at Kevin Faulk's long term replacement.

    I am glad yoou were unsuccessful. He considers calling him "Rudy" to be an insult.

    If this was his 3rd accrued year then then he's not an ERFA, he's a RFA after the season. But he spent his entire rookie season on IR so this is his 2nd year so he's an ERFA. Which basically probably means he plays for the minimum unless he signs a longer deal.

    But be realistic. People think of him as a young rookie, but he's not as young as you think. He has been in the league two prior seasons. There is controversy about his actual birthdate but it appears he is 10 days OLDER than Maroney. So he's not a guy who is necessarily going to be getting steadily better for years.

    Having said that, the Pats have had much success with guys who are basically JAGs but fit well here. They often experience success here and depart for more money, unless they are smart enough to realize they are better suited to be here. So enjoy this but don't start buying Woodhead jerseys for your whole family :)

    The New England Patriots list on their website that Danny Woodhead is 25 years old. There should be a ton of wear and tear left on those tires. By playing Division 2, Woodhead avoided the hard hits of larger, stronger, defenders, and has very few NFL carries.

    Sure thing. Considering how important the Kevin Faulk position is for the team, we could really use more than one player there.

    I wouldn't cut Faulk just because we have Woodhead, unless those early-season dropsies aren't fixable. Faulk/Woodhead/Welker/Branch/Edelman is 5 guys for 2 1/2 positions + PR, which is high but not ridiculous. Considering their importance, I'd rather have that and sacrifice depth at speed-receiver (which is where we'd probably suffer to make room for them).

    But that is encouraging (CBA changes permitting, of course).

    Actually, I believe the rule (except for rookie contracts) is that you can renegotiate a contract once per league year, including the year the contract was signed.
