    Shhh, I don't think that's a BB decision at this point.

    No, Gunner would not have made the PS then. Also, DT was still recovering at the time and behind AB, Gordon, Edelman and Dorsett. No special teams means he wasn't expected to be active even after returning to health. On top of that, Harry was still in the picture, making DT even more of a luxury item.

    In retrospect he would have been useful, but you should at least make sure your lament is based on reality at the time of his departure.

    Problem #1 was the signing to a contract under the specific terms that Bill hastily, sloppily and foolishly included.

    Problem #2 was the cutting.

    "Pats shouldn't have AB because this one guy existed before him 30 years ago."

    Yea makes sense.

    Need I remind you how good AB looked in his first game, just 1 week of practicing?

    Yeah, it's amazing how gifted the hindsight here is.

    Except it's not hindsight, and many of us were calling for him to be kept, based upon reality at the time of his departure.

    He means the guaranteed money tying up the salary cap. But I don’t see how any team could sign AB after he was cut by the Raiders without guaranteeing some money.

    Soon, there will be 6, and we will give thanks as we eat large birds that were slaughtered in retribution for eating our expensive grass seed and chasing our cars down the street.

    Agree He’s too prone to get injured for as hard as he plays and as small as he is....honestly I don’t think he will be back on pats....showed little to nothing as WR....and is average at best in PR....wish him best of luck!...great kid

    I think it’s pretty obvious he is injured....had nasty ankle injury I recall during a return and hasn’t been right soon....now they are staying HS too....he needs to work with Alex and get more pliable!

    With TFB NO one is replacing Edelman! Gronk would help right now but Edelman is Brady’s #1

    That is my point. There were two things accomplished with that contract here. The primary was strengthen your team with an elite talent below market value and the other that came hand in hand was make sure he doesn't join a direct competitor.

    They also protected themselves against him going off the rails. Now it is questionable whether Kraft pulled the cord too early to apply those protections and we will find out about that at some point in 2020 but I don't see anything wrong with the contract.

    To think you can sign someone like AB without any guaranteed money involved is wishful thinking. But of course someone will criticise BB that there was explicit no provision that voided his guarantees in case he'd send threatening texts to people.

    Really lazy work to not be prepared for that one. :rolleyes:

    Amazing, but not shocking.
