High Priest at Team Bill's Temple
As was mentioned by others many times...Cam was probably signed to attract WR's...Agholor and Bourne. Mission accomplished.
This is where we go from healthy discussion to bizarre cultish revisionism.
Why would signing a bottom of the barrel, 8 TD quarterback attract free agent talent based on the quarterback situation? The team still had to outbid everyone else nad pay them top market deals.
It’s okay…there was no master plan. Cam wasn’t the answer. The Patriots approached each situation with common sense. Cam was a low-risk bargain with a (mostly) non-binding contract. He wasn’t a shiny attraction to get free agents to come here; if FAs have stated that, it’s only because that’s what every WR will claim, of course.
Let’s be glad Bill found a promising new starter, but we don’t have to go crazy and turn the Cam signing into some kind of masterstroke.
