Sorting out New England Patriots' offseason priorities - ESPN Boston Some highlights: He thinks Wendell is very likely to come back ... except at the end he sounds as if he isn't so sure. He sort of endorses the ESPN version of the Spikes IRing, but somewhat more weasel-worded than when Reiss earlier did the same thing. He seems pretty sure that the team wants Talib back ... which was a no-brainer anyway. The only reason not to want Talib back is glassiness, and teams are generally more tolerant of that than fans are. (I'm thinking across sports, notably Danny Ainge.) Now, wanting a guy back and paying him what he asks for are two different things, but we're not that far yet.
