    I was hoping someone else would post this. Just give the date that Assante Samuel reports to the Pats. Anytime from July 27th on. Never is also an acceptable answer. Giving a reason for your answer is not required but would be appreciated. I'll start.

    August 6th - A that point the 2 a days are over. He held out long enough to save face, and has 3 weeks to get into football shape and play in at least one preseason game.

    BTW- There should be a prize of some sort for the winner.

    Re: The Assante Samuel Pool

    Isn't their significance to the July 15th date?

    I'm not a numbers guy, so I need to get some criteria to choose my answer.

    My reasoning is, he's a young healthy guy that's seemed to always practice hard. I think his decision will be based on the contract/financial/bluff situation and I don't have that firmly situated in my mind.

    If new contract or trade is out the window, I think he folds rather than hold out.

    It's an endearing affliction.

    Re: The Assante Samuel Pool

    At 3:59 P.M. on July 16th, Asante signs a long term contract which

    will be a little more than Bly and Vashar received but much less than

    Clements.

    Re: The Assante Samuel Pool

    Boy this was supposed to be just picking a simple date when you think Assante will report

    At any rate to answer your question Ray, the July 15th date is the time limit the team has to negotiate a long term deal with the franchise player, after that date the team can ONLY sign the player to a one year deal. Say for example, after the 15th, the Pats want to show good faith and get Samuel into camp on time, so they offer him an extra million to the franchise number. They can do this, but it HAS to be just a one year deal. The player can sign the tender at any time from now, and he would be guaranteed the $8MM tender offer as a one year deal.

    When: Never
    Reason: Asante is a punk who doesn't know a good offer when he sees it and i'm tired of speculating when he's coming back

    BTW- let me know when i win my prize. lol

    I'll predict that one of the current corners goes down to an injury in training camp. Belichick bends over and offers Samuel a killer 5 year contract and he signs. We go...grumble...grumble...grumble until he picks Chad twice in the opener and everybody says, "I always loved that guy!".

    That's funny :)

    I say never.

    I say it because of those who have gone before him.

    I didn't predict a date so Sept 2nd sounds good.

    It's hard to imagine Belichick caving in, but this team is looking darned good. In that situation he just might swallow a bit of pride to make it happen.

    9/5 Wednesday before the opener. In time to gameplan for Week 1. He'll in essence be in a "contract year" so he won't jeapordize any weeks performance, but he won't come in before he feels he absolutely has to.

    Re: The Assante Samuel Pool

    Well, if he's signing on the 16th, it won't be with the Pats if its a long term deal. He has until the 15th to sign a long term deal with the Pats. Otherwise, he can ONLY sign a one year deal AND can not sign a long term deal until after the season is over.

    Special extension because the 15th falls on a Sunday, deadline is the 16th I believe.
