    Do we keep him, release him. Can we get anything for him in a trade?
    Will he give 100% effort. If we grab another LB I'm sure he's gone.
    What do you think?
    thanks

    Hopefully he becomes a throw-in in a pick trade.

    Hopefully. If not, maybe they hold onto him until a team loses a LB in training camp/preseason and they (the other team) get desperate. He comes with a high price tag, unfortunately.

    Carolina needs a LB to replace Peppers. Lets trade him to them :)

    We'd never get that deal.

    Come to think of it -- maybe we can trade him to the Raiders for a possibly useful player. Any names come to mind?

    Re: What happens to Adalius Thomas ?

    I think there is a better than 50/50 shot that Adalius will stick with the Pats and have a monster season under whiz coordinator Bill Belichick as the swiss army knife of the defense.

    I don't think Dean Pees was a very good coordinator. He screwed around with Meriweather (and Adalius too when he got here), never really developed any young players (especially the corners, and I think Mayo self-developed himself), and I don't think Pees used his players very well either. Jarvis fell off the radar under Pees, and a few others too.

    I think they are temporarily losing the Patriots' number to prevent any more muggings

    Trade him to someone for a 6th round draft pick so they can use that to move up in the 4th round...

    we weren't getting higher then a 4th rounder for him, so if anything happens it would be tomorrow. As the roster stands, we need him on the team, locker room cancer aside.

    Re: What happens to Adalius Thomas ?

    Adalius was asked to play a lot of inside linebacker when he got here, not his natural position.

    By taking Spikes to pair with Mayo and McKenzie, Adalius can now use the full range of his talents by sliding back to outside linebacker, and now with Belichick as coordinator.

    I don't think that just because he was frustrated last year, that it means he's done talent-wise or production-wise. Belichick has taken malcontents from other teams and made them productive here (Dillon, Moss), maybe he can do the same for a guy within his own organization now that the coordinator is gone.

    Re: What happens to Adalius Thomas ?

    I think that's way overstated.

    I do think that if the Pats keep Thomas he'll basically shut up and solider. However, I don't think they'll keep him, or that they'll get more than JAG performance out if him if they do.

    He's due 4.5M or something like that.

    No way they keep him for that much money.

    He sucks anyway, he was probably never that good in the first place, unfortunately.

    I think BB learned a hard lesson from this and is reluctant to sign high priced FAs because of it.

    Plus he's a malcontent cancer.

    AD is NOT coming back. Get over it. We have a locker room full of rookies and first-year kids and we're going to risk exposing them to a divisive locker room?

    Football isn't all about the X's and O's.

    Yep, as long as he's not in the locker room corrupting our youth, I don't give a crap what happens to him. Just go away, Thomas.

    Looking at Miguels cap page it says he is due about $4.9 this year and even more next year. If it were just the 4.9 and he was in a contract year he might be worth keeping knowing he is playing hard for his next contract. As is, dead man walking, I doubt he will redo his deal.

    The last thing the Patriots want to do is cut him; he would make a beeline to the Jets. They will trade him for a 7'th in 2010 or find someway to get rid of him so he is not cut.

    You do not want a rotten apple like this guy hanging out with the new kids. Some other guys may be shipped out too if the Patriots continue to have a fruitful draft.
