    We played plenty to our free agents. If Samuel were a free agent, would we have been willing to sign him for $7.9M for one year?

    In any case, we have used a lot of cap space on rent-a-players.

    SAMUEL $7.9M

    MOSS $3.0M

    STALLWORTH $3.6M plus patriots get an option

    MORRIS $2.5M (this is a long-term deal, but it is pretty level)

    BRADY $2.65M (two-year contract)

    WELKER $3.5M (this is a long-term deal, but it is pretty level)

    THOMAS $7.1M per year ($12M payable this year and $9M payable next)

    I did not include WASHINGTON since his 2007 contract, if we keep him, will be less than $1M plus incentives. The patriots would retain an option to sign him in $2.5M a year range.

    MG -
    You forgot Adalius Thomas. 7 million a year.

    Morris' deal is a 4 year, $7 million deal. Or about 1.75 million a year.

    Washington's deal is 660K this year, but then it spikes up if they keep him beyond.

    I dunno if Morris is worth it... or even Brady, but hey; I'm not Belichick.

    oops! I consider Thomas so part of the team and its future that I forgot that he just joined the team. I edited.

    I spread Morris' bonus over three years. He amy or may not play for the last three years.

    The team has made no commitment to Tory James. If he is on the Game One roster, he will receive $1.35M, much less than the $2.5M threshold.

    I thought we did exactly that? His contract with the Pats was up,making him a free agent, but we gave him 7.9 mil for one year.

    I was commenting on the original thread's price evaluations actually. They said that he was going to make over 2 and a half... or something like that.

    I'm not saying that Morris isn't good, just not worth the 2.5m price.

    If he does average 1.5m, it isn't that bad...

    :) That is my point. Most people don't view it us signing a free agent corner to a one year deal for $8M.

    Kind of too early to ask this question,Would you not say?

    Maybe around week 6 we would have a better idea of what value these guys are worth,Right now - on paper they all look good.
