    I don't know if anyone here has read it, but Jeff Howe at the athletic opined a 3 year $84MM deal that (to make a long story short) gives Brady major Guaranteed money. The key thing for me is that the 3rd year is a cap scam. Bottom line we could have Brady for 2 years with a cap hit of $22MM. After if he;s released we would wind up with $7MM in dead money. If he wants to stay, for his 45th year we'd need to extend him

    Bottom line is that Brady could stay here for a very fair contract (40MM guaranteed), at a cap number that won't kill us. If brady stay the realization is that we care going to wind up with a cap hit the year after he's done here. BUT whether its Stidham or someone else who comes it, it will be on a rookie contract, so the damage will be mitigated

    Howe also makes a lot of other thoughts on our own FA group and who we should target in FA. I didn't agree with some of his opinions, but he has a lot of interesting ideas that are worth discussion

    The issue is not whether we can handle a very fair contract, but rather a market contract. We can. Folks are all excited about a cap hit in 2022 and 2023 when our Qb will b e own his rookie contract. I have so such concern.

    With Brady returning, maybe there is only a 20-30% chance of Pats being relevant for one or more seasons. With him not returning there is 0% chance that they will be relevant over next 2 years.

    This is now the league of Patrick Mahomes. That guy and any JAGS around him will probably dominate the league for the next 5-10 years.

    I agree. I think more than 10% for next year though simply because our defense is built to take them on. The year after though Gilmore becomes more and more costly, JC Jackson will need a new deal and he just signed a new high powered agent, Dmac will be done etc. We have another 1 year to do it imo. We shouldn't waste it with someone like Andy Dalton or a rookie QB!

    We were never going anywhere until he was gone. He has a lot more in common with Tony Eason than just #11.
    We are a good team. We have a top coaching staff, and maybe the best head coach ever. We can win, and beat anybody with a decent quarterback. But as long as he plays, I do not want any other quarterback than Tom Brady. He gives whoever he plays for the best chance to win.
    Meh. We'll see.
