    Law is all about the money right now. He's been to 4 Super Bowls won 3 so what else is left to do? GET PAID thats what.

    Honestly, I would have to imagine the Pats are VERY hesitant to talk to any Poston clients.

    Law is probably still kicking himself for walking away from prime money from the Pats and signing for squat with the Jets.

    Talk about overestimating your market value? And it was all thanks to Carl & Kevin Poston, whose always equate money with 'spect!!

    Yo, Ty, how'd your family eat last season, ya greedy bahstahd!?!?!

    If the Postons say they are talkiing to the Pats, it must be true. They would never manipulate the press.

    I think the fact that he hasn't been able to garner any serious interest so far might make him realize that he's just not worth the money that he thinks he is. That could be why we're talking with him again.

    Oh yeah, they're talking all right! It goes something like this:

    Ring Ring
    BB: Hello
    Carl (or Kevin - whichever one isn't suspended) Poston: Hi Bill, it's me, Carl Poston, calling about the Pat's interest in Ty Law
    BB: Carl, we've been over this a million times. Your client wants too much money and we've moved on as a team.
    CP: Okay, have a good day then.
    BB: Bye, and please don't call again.

    Poston to the press: I've been talking to the Patriots about Ty Law.

    If the Poston's say they are talking to the Patriots it must be true.

    If you can't trust sports agents like them I just don't know who you can trust anymore.

    Unfortunately for Ty Mike doesn't get to make those decisions in Seattle any more. Although a battle may be brewing for just that reason - his contract is up after this season and he's talking retirement rather than extension - some think in a ploy to get his GM powers back.

    KFFL said the other day that Ty left his two day Seattle visit without a contract. He's apparently still fixated on a $10M signing bonus that nobody has any intention of giving him. But if he ends up looking at another $2M+ phony incentve laden deal like what the JETS offer initially represented come TC it wouldn't surprise me at all to see BB extend the olive branch with a reachable incentive laden deal. He loves Ty's talent and work ethic and willingness to play hurt and ability to play pretty well hurt. He also saw him as a potential top flight safety into his mid 30's.

    RAC's still got some $$$, but Tennessee is up against it unless they cut McNair (who is due a $9M salary). I don't think we have a CB or a healthy S on the roster right now who could say with a straight face - even in their dreams - they should have made 9 pro bowls.

    Ty to BB : "BB, no no that is not enough. I am not that cheap"

    BB to Ty : "I am giving you millions, you are fortunate millionaire to get tax cuts. I happened to know businessman who knows how to double your income and yet it is tax free. So I am actually giving you more than what you want. Just Sign that damn paper !!"

    Ty to BB : "I heard in the news that you happened to be economist. Today I feel that I am in the safe hands. Where is contract?"

    I don't think that RAC has that power either. Right? I thought Savage was the GM? :confused:

    Yeah, it's probably true, but they didn't say the Patriots were talking back.

    To whoever said Law is all about the money right now, yes, that is probably still the case. However, it is also possible he has realized he walked away from a good thing in New England and is looking to get back some of the love he walked away from. OK, maybe it's not likely, but stranger things have happened.

    Yeah but here's the thing...I don't see a cold chance in hell of BB paying him a nickel more than 3.5 million per year with alot of incentives. No way Ty "ron tidwell" Law plays for that.

    OK..what about this..a one year deal for him to sort of showcase himself and play strong and then get the big bucks next year?? THAT is very possible isn't it?? Maybe he thinks the big bucks passed him by..so why not?? Just a thought..

    That's pretty much the deal he got last year from the Jets, coming off the Lis-Franc injury. Maybe now he figures he can cash in on the year he had with the Jets.

    While he led the league with 10 INTs, the Jets apparently weren't too thrilled with him in other ways, because they didn't seem interested in extending him. I think that decision may have been made before his old secondary coach, Eric Mangini, got there, but then again he is still a free agent so if Eric wanted him you might think he would be back there.

    I didn't see many Jets games down here in Panthersland, so I have little idea why the Jets might not have wanted him back (unless it was his contract demands). Can anyone fill me in?

    It was Eric's decision - he was in well before the delayed FA. And there were several million reasons remaining in 2006 alone in that phony contract they signed him to. It was never really intended to be more than a 1 year deal. He was always a ballhawk who tended to be in the right place at the right time for the INT (although not always in the actual place he was supposed to be in without firm coaching). But last season he was playing slow at about 25 lbs over his 2004 weight, and he relied on his physicality a lot incurring quite a few costly penalties. At one point around Thanksgiving they were pretty ticked at him (even Herm the hugger) because his penalty yards substantially exceeded his INT's, most of which they were unable to convert on anyway without a functional QB. They also came to understand that Ty is a talent, not a leader or a mentor of young talent (who may want his $$$).

    Savage almost lost his job at the end of the season, until RAC intervened with ownership and chose him over the team President. RAC owns Savage now. :D

    This is a pendulum switch from year after year considering how pats performed Vs Ty law's performance. In 2004, it was on pats side whereas in 2005 it was towards Ty's side.

    Considering Rodney and Gay will be back in the lineup this year it will be a classic poker game in terms of discussion and negotiation since both of them
    have upper hand, it is going to be wait and watch.

    Despite what he says, even Ty has to be tiring of this annual touring. Last season there was no way he came back here. NONE. This year, there is just a slight possibility because he should be relatively healthy for a CB his age almost 2 year post lis-franc who actually played last season, BB values him, always has, and forgives verbal faux pas for a player who plays pretty well even when he is hurt. BB always felt he could finish his career here as a safety too. That's why he offered him what was really a pretty good 4 year deal 2 years ago. Few teams (possibly RAC) are going to give him a real deal let alone a lot of signing bonus money. We've got some bonus money to burn, why not on a guy we think we could use one way or another for a few more seasons. Nobody's going to pony up the $10M this season either, but we could afford to pony up maybe half of that.

    If you want some concise reflection on Ty Law's situation re: the Patriots, then scroll back and read all three of MoLewisRocks' posts - very well done.

    I'll only pick this small bone with Mo - Ty Law wouldn't get more than $3/3.5mil up front from the Pats. I could see them giving incentives to reach $4mil/yr but not including a big splash guaranteed; no way bro'.....

    The Pats reportedly offered Law no more than $2M a year prior to his signing with the Jets. Why would they double that amount now a year later after his OK year in New York? The answer, it will not happen as N.E. will pass on the Law act, unless he comes begging at the doorstep (which will never happen) for money that will not exceed the previous '05 offer of $2M.

    If Belichick is talking to Poston it is to mask the fact that he covets a

    CB with one of his 1st 2 picks. Not only that, but if he has his sights

    set on one of the LB's or DE's in RD-1 there is little holding him back to

    trade up from #52 to grab the CB he covets the most.


    Belichick has the ammo to grab a LB, CB, and WR within the 1st 2 rounds if he so desires. He will do everything and everything possible to expand his hand with the press. I want to hear more phone calls to everyone available as a FA or trade.

    I would love to pull out my Ty Law jersey but with all the signings I think we are in great shape in the DB backfield I think he will wind up in Cleveland the Pats of the Midwest.
