    I don't know about him not being a great reporter. He generally seems to be right 95% of the time and doesn't get used the way Shefter seems to sometimes.

    Theres 2 solid TEs (Hooper, Henry) and some solid WRs that would upgrade the offense in free agency.

    That fossil threw for 4000+ yards to complete trash WR/TE group and went 12-4 in a down year.

    I think it's more likely Gronk comes back in 2020 than I thought he would in 2019. He needed a year off.

    1 year at $25m is a total steal for the Pats. Low number and no commitment beyond a year.

    They can structure it as a 3 year $95m deal with base of $1m and $30m and $35 for 3 years and $24m bonus, and 2nd and 3rd year automatically voids. So we get cap hit in 2019 of 13 + 1 + 8 of $22m in 2019 and cap hits of $8m each in 2020 and 2021. All manageable.

    He's also really small now. He would need to really bulk back up if he did actually plan on coming back to football.

    Kind of stating the obvious, Brady can't simultaneously look for a top of the market deal and expect top talent to be brought in. There's probably a win-win where Brady takes less ($20M) with an agreement with Belichick that more assets will be spend at WR/TE this year - even getting input from Brady on who he wants. But Brady can't expect $30M and then be upset when there's not enough talent around him.

    Yeah, he wants to come back so that his brain would leak more

    Gronk shares disturbing head 'liquid' detail

    A few questions.

    How is it that other teams pay top dollar for QBs but the Pats can't pay Brady?

    Why are NYFL players expected to avoid the O in OTA?

    Why are draft picks so important when you can pick up proven players in other ways?

    Why do Pats fans keep expecting Gronk to return?

    Either with AJ Green should make Brady happy with a Rookie thrown in for good measures. I would double dip at WR again there is a definite NEED for some Speed guys.

    We've tried throwing rookies in "for good measure" before, including 2019. It doesn't really work. We need another LaFell/Hogan type signing (was supposed to be Sanu) and probably a #1 to replace Edelman.

    It's really not a good free agent class though a lot of older guys plus some meh younger guys.

    "Bledsoe Signs $103-Million Deal. New England Patriot quarterback Drew Bledsoe signed the biggest contract in NFL history Wednesday, agreeing to a 10-year, $103-million deal that virtually guarantees he will spend his entire career with the same team. Mar 8, 2001"

    Seven months before he's permanently replaced. Who offers a 10 year contract anyways?

    Agreed.

    Especially in football where the sport is so physical that a player could get knocked out haha

    Name another team that pays top dollar for QB that has won as consistently as the Pats the past 20 years?

    I don't think anyone was salivating over LaFell or Hogan immediately before we signed them. It's not about flashy additions. There will be a good starting WR available on the cheap one way or another and it's up to the front office to identify that guy.

    That has nothing to do with my question and it requires too much research on my part. There could be some over the years.

    The reason the Pats won so much over those 20 years was mostly because of the QB, Brady.

    Pay the man.

    I want brady back but i also want them to be able to put a winning team at the same time with brady. Him taking a huge chunk of the salary cap won’t help that. Brady has a super model wife who makes more money than him and loves him dearly. Idk how they share their expenses. I am not talking about a lowball offer but an offer where they could other things and sign other pieces.
