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.
