With the new CBA seemingly close at hand and the rumors of $100-110 million for the cap also there, my questions are these: 1) Would the Pats ask McGinest to restructure? 2) Would the Pats be able to put an adequate deal together to re-sign Vinatieri? 3) Would the Pats put an adequate deal together to re-sign Givens? 4) Would new deals for Branch, Graham, and Koppen take priority over Adam and David? My thoughts are this: 1) Yes, the Pats would sign McGinest to an extension that would guarantee he'd retire as a Pat. 2) I think that a deal could be done if Adam was willing to take only 2 mill a year. 3) I think that Givens is all but gone. 4) I think that deals for Branch, Graham and Koppen would be a big priority and would get done sooner rather than later. I am honestly hoping that Givens gets signed to a huge deal. The Pats getting a 3rd round pick as compensation next year would be nice.
