    FK? English please? Can we act a bit more mature than "FCK U BALTIMORE"?

    Great. The Pats didn't need another OLB anyway.

    Sure, he can play it, but he's been most effective as an edge pass rusher.

    Hes a great all around LB..and he can COVER very well..something a few LBs on our team cant do anymore.

    even if he played outside..itd be fine with me

    funny..last year only 3 FAs got franchised..this year just about EVERY good player got franchised.
    Briggs, Samuel, Freeney, Thomas, Redding

    good names left: Stallworth, Clements...

    Donnie Edwards isn't a good player? London Fletcher isn't a good player?

    Just because they franchised him doesn't mean they'll sign him. I'm sure they will try but if they can't make it work with the cap they are thinking at least they'll get some compensation in a first round pick.

    Huh?

    Thomas had 11 sacks, but how often do you see an ILB in a 3-4 defense blitz?

    Edwards had 141 tackles. Fletcher had 146. Thomas had 83.

    Fletcher had 4 interceptions. Edwards had 3. Thomas had 1.

    You're fooling yourself if you think Thomas is a substantially better play than either. They're all very even.

    He could have done it without the all-caps "FCK YOU BALTIMORE", though. ;)

    well I wish the news could have been foisted upon us with a little more cermony, but Tomas being franchised makes things interesting. Carlos Polk is a very interesting option.
