Worries over Wynn reached dangerous/deranged levels lately so let us find strength and comfort in watching Wynn's actual performance free of expectations. I understand this is not very popular way around here or anywhere for that matter nevertheless..
First we welcome mostly restrained yet...
Today is the deadline for exercising 5th year option. Pats have 2 options with Wynn and Sony.
By the new rule exercising options fully guarantees both 2021 salary and 2022 option.
Wynn = 2M + 10.4M option
Sony = 1.8M + 4.5M option
Neither price tags are excessive but both had injury issues so...
Id like to add some context to counter-balance the insanity of media takes out there “evaluating“ “uncharacteristically“ “aggressive“ start of FA.
(futile, i know :))
take 1 - “Patriots will be uncharacteristically aggressive“
First of all that's tautological. Lets skip the hyperbolic use of...
Have a bit of time on my hand over next month or so & w this being a very special offseason in general & Pats particular i decided to invest some in this thread.
The purpose of this thread (hopefully) is to present as comprehensive Pats 2021 ROSTER BUILDING OPTIONS picture as possible so I hope...
Wynn over win - id prefer good Wynn news over the win.
So far this from dr.Chao:
“He came into the season recovering from a left achilles rupture as a rookie and was taken into the medical tent with an apparent foot injury. His return is questionable. The injury happened on Sony Michel's...
starting with Pats cuts only . adding some league cuts later
RB -- Brosette
FB/LB -- Johnson
WR -- 2 of Berrios, R.Davis, D.Patterson (assuming Olszewski makes the 53 - here or elsewhere)
TE -- Anderson
OL -- (Gauthier, Croston, St.Luis)
DT -- Kamalu* (Parry)
LB -- Munson* (Scooby)
S -- Gant...
MIA QB game seems to be the biggest blunder of this FA. Many moves - and every move worse than the other. I wonder how happy is Flores with this? After they missed on Bridgewater and Taylor I thought Brissett trade indeed makes sense. Probably IND didn't want to move him unless for a kingdom...
Here a great Sunday read on NE FA & more:
- comprehensive WR search analysis
- behind the scenes Humphries bidding
- links to Patriots influence across the league - making FA difficult - trades easier
(so expect trades ;))
- two beautiful nuggets by ex Pats on special 2018 locker room
ok, lets open a thread for cap since its a recurring subject on multiple threads any many people are deeply worried . which hopefully can be avoided ;)
At the moment - going by @Miguel of course - NE cap is at 12.4M
(note: Slater's picked up option already accounted for)
id follow this with...
Yeah.. lets forget what we were “reporting“ all of this season.., JFX
Year after year .. Can't this poor souls enjoy at least one day?
(or at least have the decency to wait for the Duck Boats..)
Please don't read this or any of this. Just business as usual (on both sides)..
A place to collect at one place film analysis on Pats and Chiefs + tape oriented podcasts.
For some further - tape based - specific discussions . and for those who can't/don't search around during the week. Please add interesting things of the sort you find around or produce yourselves...
