    That's what I think.

    4 WR of Jackson, GAffney, Moss, Welker. That's pretty good.

    Plus Washington if he stays with a reworked low money contract and the 2 guys on the practice squad. That's plenty.

    Gaffney = FA
    Washington = highest paid 5th/6th WR in the league

    No way, the Pats will pick up his option and keep him till 2012..or whatever the last year of the contract is.

    I'd love Stallworth to stay - but if you assume Moss stays then we don't need a $5M WR to go with Moss and Welker. The replacement for Stallworth would be a downgrade, whether it's Chad Jackson (unproven), Washington (with a different contract), Gaffney (if he re-signs) or some other guy. As much as I have grown to like Donte, it's probably just too much money for the WR group.

    I think Stallworth stays, Gaffney and Washington hit the road. Cutting Stallworth at this point wouldn't be a smart business move either.

    Exactly. It's just as well. Time for some new, cheaper blood. No offense to him.

    Stallworth's contract really isn't that bad. Some restructuring could keep him here. He's quite a weapon, especially when it comes to YAC, but ultimately, Chad Jackson might be a more versatile receiver (I know that will offend some at this point given CJ hasn't accomplished much), and therefore Stallworth may become not worth it.

    If they want another big time, proven #2 WR I agree. But remember we signed Stallworth before we knew we were getting Moss. I have a feeling that if Chad Jackson shows something decent (even in practice) that they'll feel like he can play that #2 WR role given how much Moss opens things up; then they can spend the $5M elsewhere.

    The game has changed. This is now Polian's NFL where passing offenses rule. That's why the Pats will pay to keep both Moss and Stallworth.

    My guess is they won't. What do I want ? I want them to keep them both and draft Jake Long. We only have 6 or so years left of a Hall of Fame QB who could go down as the best ever; I want him to have Ferrari's to throw to and be protected like a King.

    I understand what you're saying, but that's not what I'm talking about. NE signed Stallworth to a prove it deal, and to this point he's played pretty well. NE would find it pretty hard to get another player willing to sign one of those prove it deals in the future if they were to cut Stallworth. Maybe they could trade him, but then I don't think you'd get equal value for him, and I'd rather convert his bonus. Really, I don't understand why pats fans are acting Like NE won't be able to keep him, as they can make his 2008 cap hit simular to his current cap hit. We'll see, but I think he's staying.

    Why? Cutting him helps both sides. "Re-working his contract"...suppose he doesn't want to rework it. He thinks he can get more money elsewhere? Then he'd leave. He DID prove himself, which is why he'd get paid more elsewhere. He'd most likely like to be a #1 receiver, not #2.

    The Colts will be looking for Marvin's replacement.

    He'll be 36 next year and coming off a knee injury.

    Stallworth stays

    Gaffney and Washington goes, though he has been a factor on special teams


    Stallworth is going to catch 58 to 65 passes, he stays...


    Moss needs to stay, this has been to great..

    Stallworth can stay but he is going to have to redo his deal to remain here. I think he will opt to stay to be with Brady and I doubt he wants to go to his 4th team in 4 years if he leaves New England.

    No, he goes. Doesn't matter how many passes he catches. With Moss and Welker, almost anyone could catch them.

    Stallworth? Stays!
    Samuel? Stays!
    Gay? Stays!
    Where does all the cap money come from?

    I unfortunately Agree.

    Stallworth's contract was given to him so he would be rewarded for a season that Moss is having. New England would love to give Moss Stallworth's contract and get something else done for Stallworth. But would Stallworth stay for less and being behind Moss.

    Sorry Samuel will be gone next yr, and Im afraid it will be the NYJ ... I just feel that Stallworth would readjust to play with Tom Brady...
