    With 24 days till the season opens - might there be a surprise player addition upcoming?? Could be trade, signing a released player of significance or even one of our own (logan)?

    Go ahead and take a shot - if you nail it, I will buy you a cup of coffee and donate in your name, to Miguel's sisters charity - bread of life.

    My guess is they pick up an experienced all pro offensive lineman - Logan Mankins.

    I'd love to pry that rookie undrafted DL Galette (sp?) away from New Orleans. I'd trade any running back except Faulk or Maroney for him.

    I think we're gonna see Sanders get traded for either a RB or DL.

    I hate to see it happen, but my guess is Mankins is gone. The situation seems beyond repair. I hope to hell I'm wrong.

    I think one of the second rd picks will go. For what position or who I don't know.

    Junior Seau is coming out of retirement to help the Pats he feels he can help out at OLB and occasionally guard.

    I hate to copy answers, but I feel the same way:

    1. Mankins is dealt;

    2. Sanders is dealt. They want Brown on this team. and;

    3. a veteran is traded for. An OLB/DE and/or an OL.

    Bonus prediction: Morris is cut. The team wants to keep BJGE.

    "Serenity now...insanity later..."

    Predictions:

    Sanders to Denver for a 4th rounder.

    Mankins to the NFC for a 2 and a 4.

    Before the injuries I might have believed the trades, but now there is room on the roster, so no deal.

    Eventually Mankins, Jackson and McNeil will realize that they all have no alternative. Sayonara Mr. Holdout Baur, and welcome back, Logan...

    Only one guy Sean Gilbert ever held out through a single year, never mind two. He never made the lost earnings up either.

    If I told you what the surprise move was, it wouldn't be a surprise now would it.

    After final cutdown, the Pats sign Kellen Clemems as their clipboard holder.

    Mankins will be dealt.

    Brady will have a new contract.

    ....and I wish, I wish, I wish: Maroney gets cut, Magahee is a Pat for Wheatley and a 5th.

    Sanders for a 4th would be a steal. I'd expect more like a 6th or 5th. Think about what they gave up for Hobbs.

    Mankins may get us a 1st. He considers himself the best guard in the league :)

    That would be an absolutely awful course of action for the Patriots to take.

    Can't see it. The 2009 picks have shown too much (and even Brace has enough upside to keep for at least one more season), and the 2010 picks are essentially untradable because of the rookie salary cap that is still in place.

    Re: Surprise move?? Try to call it......

    I think these are odd scenarios as far as a hold out thru a full year would be concerned because generally if a player does that they dont accrue a season and are right back where they were but because these guys where hosed by he RFA going from 4 to 6 due to no CBA they could be set free if a CBA was agreed upon. Still highly unlikely they would sit a full season as they still would not gain the year of service toward benefits and they would be leaving money on the table that in theory they can never get back though the 3 mil or so is a small number to walk away from if you think you are looking at 30+mil.

    Would you risk 30 mil over 3 mil now just because you might tick off some fans, look greedy, lose a year of your career, or any other side effect of holding out. Would you even do it for 15 mil vs 3 mil now (assumption being just because he signs a 30 mil contract doesnt mean he collects it all).

    So you think the team is ready to rely on an unproven 2nd year SS, and keep as the only significant backup a guy who has already shown he cannot hold the position through an entire season.

    Interesting thinking, I'll give you that much. I guess the only explanation for the sudden desire to jettison Sanders is that DWToys has signed up under multiple monikers on this site.

    The trade wasn't that bad. :D

    Seriously, though, they got two fifths for Hobbs.
