??? I expect us to have a competitive roster. We always do (at least since Kraft arrived). Why do keep on saying that I don't think that we will have a competitive roster. I believe our primary difference is that I want to defer more of Brady's compensation that you do. I also believe that from BRADY's perspective, he might be better off elsewhere; but that is for Brady to decide. But, yes, I do indeed believe that Brady will get some signals from Belichick by who is re-signed and which free agents are signed in the first week of free agency. Obviously, that won't be the final team, but Brady understands that hoping for later major transactions that will help the passing game rarely happen.
