    I would say the scales of probability are tipping heavily against the signing of Adam Seward.

    I picked Peppers being signed, because we'd technically have to trade for him, thus putting the chances of us signing him at 0%. :p

    No brainer.

    - Rodney retiring - more likely than not
    - Veteran QB - quite possible, discussions with Patrick Ramsey have taken place
    - Jason Taylor - quite possible if a deal can be worked out
    - Tedy Bruschi - probably lasts 1 more year, but who thought Vrabel would go?

    - Julius Peppers - could happen, but it would take the right deal and the right contract. Much more complicated, much more unlikely.

    Actually, the Pats have better Vegas odds on that than my Tampa Bay Lightning*, though. :(

    Tedy will surely stay for another season. We haven't got the slightest depth at the position and he can still play. His coaching skills also make him a valuable asset to the team. I think the Pats chose to keep Bruschi in stead of Vrabel, but it could've just as easily been the other way around. Now that Vrabes is gone, Tedy will stay.

    Oh, and wrt the poll, signing Peppers is the obvious choice. My avy is just the symbol of my unrealistic hopes and dreams. This particular one, anyway. I'll probably go with a "Wes Welker CALL ME!" avy once the Peppers situation is resolved. :D

    I voted on Tedy being cut, he is very valuable to the team in leading the yound line backers. I don't see him returning after this season though.

    Had to go with the Julius Peppers signing. Of course, I also said we'd never sign Randy Moss back in the day.

    All are reasonable - but I also voted Peppers. As mentionned, I think it's a sound deal, just difficult to fit under the cap. To be honest, I could see all of these as options (though obv either Taylor OR Peppers, not both).

    I think Bru will be back - he is cheaper than Vrabel - but he can't be in Foxborough for many more years...

    It looks like the general consensus is the Julius Peppers deal being the most unlikely. All of the other options seem a bit more likely to happen, however unlikely they may be.

    I just don't see Peppers getting signed. He would cost too much and doesn't fit a 3-4 DE or OLB.

    I didn't see Goodell giving the Pats back their #1 that was taken away listed, that would have been my pick.....

    If Peppers costs over $10MM a year, AND a high 2nd or a 1st, which he most likely will, I don't want him on the team. We can get one or two studs from colleges for a fraction of that $10MM cost. Granted there will be a learning curve with rooks but the long term benefit to the team is much greater. But the way, I hope either Wood or Crable will burst on the scene this year and deliver a 8 to 10 sack performance. :singing:

    Yeah, that will rest the peppers discussion for me.
