    I was reading my SportingNews, and it said on one section of the NFL part, that the Patriots may look at Balitmore's Terrell Suggs to replace either Colvin, Bruschi or Seau. They said he could take a similar role to Willie McGinest when he was here. He can play DE/LB. What do you all think about him?

    He's great.

    And will cost entirely too much.

    I believe he hails from Arizona and played his college ball there, and has expressed an interest in playing for the Cardinals, so I'd say that's his likely destination.

    OMG I just wet myself. Probably too much $$$$ though

    Maybe the Pats get a Superbowl Discount?

    Suggs had his best years as a 3-4 OLB in the pros. I wouldn't be shocked if the Pats made a run at him, but he wants to go to the Cardinals. No seriously!

    Personally, I think he would be perfect in our system.

    "T Sizzle", OLB. playmaker. 80 tackles (52 solo), 5 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 6 passes defensed in 2007.

    sack totals, previous years:

    03: 12
    04: 10.5
    05: 8
    06: 9.5

    The passes defensed stats over the last 2 years suggest they use him in coverage a fair amount these days (6 in 07, 8 in 06). Fast, powerful, young, good instincts, stats might be under-represented, given how many tackles and assists get attributed to R. Lewis there.

    Would he "get it" in New England? Who knows, with any of these guys. If the Sporting News is right and we're looking at him, that's part of what we always look at.

    I have no idea what he'd be like on the inside, but as an OLB, part of what you'd get would be youth, so it's worth thinking about assuming the skills translate.

    If Suggs wants to be part of a SB championship caliber team he'd be a fool not to give us a look. But if its all about the benjamins.....then he's not going to drink the cool-aid to begin with.

    And he is only 25 I believe. I would love to have Suggs but I don't think the Pats will be able to come up with the money after trying to retain their own players. I read that Suggs wants to return to Arizona but the Ravens would be stupid not to franchise him. The Pats still need ILB's.

    Ravens front office philosophically tend to avoid the franchise tag (for whatever reason.)

    I think he'd be a great fit for the Pats if Colvin walks. And honestly, if Colvin & Asante walk, not sure why people think we won't be able to afford Suggs.

    Belichick had raved about Suggs in that draft.

    Right. I'm just assuming the Pats somehow come to an agreement with Samuel. Colvin isn't a free agent and has a high cap number I believe.

    I dont think Colvin wants to move anywhere. I think they just try and restructure his deal and add on a few more years.

    Asante i think is gone regardless of what we offer.

    No Jersey Selected

    If they can work the numbers it would be great. I would rather keep Colvin or Samuel than go for Suggs. I just don't see how the Pats stay under the cap with everybody.

    I'd be surprised if Samuel is here next season. Belichick will not break the bank to keep him and will let Samuel test the market, after which some ridiculous team will break the bank to sign him only to learn they have acquired a good corner at a ridiculous price.

    As for Suggs, a great talent but probably out of our price range. He would have to want to come here (this season may be enough for some good prospects, but likely older ones on a third contract, not their first big money deal).

    Maybe his former teammate, Adalius Thomas, can help with the recruitment of Suggs.

    It seems like we aren't allowed to talk about anything else. Who cares? What we say here will have no effect on the Patriots.
