    The lower end of recent reports has the total of these guys over $80 million per year.

    Armstead could be looking at an offseason deal that pays him from $16 million to $20 million.

    The floor for Hooper is likely to start at $10 million per year

    The defensive end tag for 2020 should be roughly $17 million -- and Judon is very likely to exceed that figure on the open market

    With the year Schobert is having, expect him to try and snag $36 million guaranteed and $58 million over four years” ($14.5 million per year)

    Anderson is “going to want more than $10 million per season over the long term

    A Pro Bowl alternate this year, Reader could be shooting for recent defensive tackle deals that include those of the Falcons’ Grady Jarrett ($68 million, $17 million per year), the Bengals’ Geno Atkins ($65 million, $16.3 million per year) and the Titans’ Jurrell Casey ($60.5 million, $15.1 million per year).

    I want Amari Cooper, WR.
    I want Austin Hooper, TE.

    Yeah, stuff being reported today indicates that the 30 mil thing has been debunked.

    Somebody post the link to the press release from Brady and/or the team, at least. It would also be handy to have the contract details.

    Since none of that exists, Brady is not (yet) back.

    So, this thread becomes a double if/then:

    1) IF Brady is back... and,
    2) PROVIDED sufficient firepower to land your favorite names

    He's really the 800 pound gorilla of this off-season. His terms or his no-deal dictate everything else. There's no substitute for reality on this one.

    Sources tell me Brady is “livid” that he didn’t win Patriots practice player of the week last season.

    This thread is a time-waster until Brady's signing here or elsewhere is decided. Even if you presume he remains a Patriot, his contract terms will determine in part how much money is available to "fix the Pats."

    People are talking about the 2-4 $10M-$15M players we will sign, which would depend on Brady's contract terms.

    Is there a new GM? a new coach? a new owner?
    ======
    How often have we signed a top free agent? How often have we signed 2 or 3 or 4?

    Sure, we signed Revis and Gilmore. But IMO, this is different from signing 2-4 top players.

    And that's because, fortunately, team management realizes that signing the most stars has no correlation to winning championships.

    Pretty talented young player, but can he get out of the tub? Seems to be the best te available unless your a big fan of Hooper.

    Can’t believe that guys gonna paid for basically being an ir casualty year after year, you’d like to think he earned his contract on the field but he hasn’t. But there’s no doubt the physical tools are there to make the leap provided he can stay healthy. Interesting situation with him regarding health and talent.

    Personally, if Brady does stay, I’d like to see the best LT available and move Wynn back inside to LG where I think he can dominate. It’s not a hole now, but it will be if Thuney leaves for free agency.

    Sucks that they have so many holes to fill. So many ways this team can go. Gonna need some key free agent signings that stick for sure.

    How do we feel about Evan Engram? He was rumored to be available at the deadline and NY liked the backup when engram went down. He’s in his final year as well so maybe that might not wanna pay him. I’d offer a 1st for Engram and a 3rd we wouldn’t have a 1st and a 2nd but with 4 3rds we could trade into the 2nd round and keep 3 3rds

    Do we have an idea what kind of contract Thuney would be looking for? Once the Brady situation is settled, I think Thuney's is the next main one that decides what direction we go

    I would assume more than Mason signed for and I doubt we tie up that much money in two guards.

    And some real production and impact from the higher round draft picks for the first time in awhile. Here are the top three rounds for the past 5 years, which mainly show swings and misses, with the occasional “still pending,” aside from the blue chip player that is Joe Thuney, who also happens to be a free agent with a good chance of leaving next month:

    2015
    1–Brown
    2-Richards
    3-Grissom

    2016
    2-Cyrus Jones
    3-Thuney
    3-Valentine
    3-Brissett

    2017
    3-Rivers
    3-Garcia

    2018
    1-Wynn
    1-Michel
    2-Dawson

    2019
    1-Harry
    2-Williams
    3-Harris
    3-Winovich
    3-Cajuste

    Big money and big cost to get him, no?
