the tittans are playing this the smart way...whats dallas offering? no more then a 5th, 6th, or 7th round draft pick?
if pacman gets the reinstatement results in two weeks, and he IS reinstated for next year, a LOT more teams would be interested, and the pick would likely elavate to the third round at least
if pacman is NOT reinstated, then a team would still be willing to give up a 6th/7th for pacman, even if they have to wait a year
Looks like the Pats were kicking the Pacman tires after all and did have interest, why wouldn't they ? This from PFW:
"Although he now appears to be heading to Dallas, Pacman Jones did receive plenty of interest from the Patriots, a team insider told us. So what does this all mean? Well, for one thing, any lingering notion that the Patriots place a higher priority on personal character than most teams is all but completely shot. From drafting troubled S Brandon Meriweather in the first round last year to trading for Randy Moss to embracing S Rodney Harrison upon his return from an HGH suspension, itâ€™s clear that the Pats are no different from any other team that values talent above all else."
Te myth that the Patriots are all choir boys is something of a media creation. While it is certainly true that Robert Kraft has said "no thugs," the way I see it, this refers to what happens after they arrive in Foxboro.
And, of course, weren't they saying just a week or two that the Pats had no interest whatsoever in him?
One more thing--anyone else think that, if Pacman does become a Patriot, they'll assign Gostkowski to make sure he toes the line? [Think about it for a moment. . . .]
I think the fact that they take such a stock in high charector creats the atmosphere at Gillitte which thans allows them to take a chance on a few guys with out it destroying chemistry.
If the Patriots got Pacman, I'd be concerned about keeping him out of Providence. Foxboro is too close.
Which out of the loop PFW did you get this from - Pro Football Weekly who never knows anything about anything that transpires in Foxboro or the one housed in the basement at Gillette that knows little more than that. The character dig sounds like it's from the former.
That would be PRO Football Weekly
