I'm just wondering what people's thoughts are on this. It seems they haven't even approached him about a new deal. Is there something wrong in New England since Pioli left, these things seem to be left until the last minute. I know a lot of the players were taken aback by the trade of Seymour, this non-contact with Vince seems like a really bad idea to me. It stinks of indecision on the part of the Patriots. Why leave this so late? Is it that they are leaning towards going to a 4-3 base? Has it got something to do with the CBA? Why would we franchise the guy when its clear he wants a good long term deal and doesn't appear to want to break the bank either? Would you take 1st and 2nd round picks in this years draft for him? Is Myron Pryor good enough to start in 2010? I think he is well ahead of Brace. I'm just confused by it all really. I've no problem if they let him go, as long as they believe that Pryor is up to a starting role and they get a really good deal out of it. I would prefer if he stayed though, imo he is the best NT in the league and by a long way too as he is a 3 down guy. Whats you thoughts and please explain to me about the CBA if its part of this.
