    wait until signings don't count against comp picks, although now they would likely only cost a 6th each

    If we want another camp body, we'll sign Tretola also.

    Both worked out the same day, AFAIK. The Pats chose Ulrick John for the team and offered Tretola a job as a bouncer at Patriot Place.

    ;)

    Trevtola?

    I liked him in Pulp Fiction and Saturday Night Fever, but he looks like he may have put on a little weight.

    Dez to the Ravens makes sense.
    Only a 1 year deal thats the kind of deals we love.

    Seems like an odd rumor why wouldn't the Raven's just give him the one year deal instead then.

    And, considering his recent performance, why would they offer Dez a multi-year deal, anyway?

    My own question, answered ...

    Crabtree's deal ..

    2018:
    $1.0M salary (gtd)
    +$2.33M proration of $7M signing bonus = $3.33M cap hit

    2019:
    $2.0M roster bonus (option bonus?)
    $5.0M salary
    +$2.33M bonus proration = $9.33M cap hit

    2020:
    $6.0M salary
    +$2.33M bonus proration = $8.33M cap hit

    Seems fairly reasonable to speculate that Bryant was looking for something like $6M-$8M gtd on a 1-year deal.

    Average 2018 cap hit for the 10 new players the Pats have acquired so far this season through trades and free agent signings is $1.93M.

    If you take out Clayborn's $5.5M cap hit, that average drops to $1.43M for the other 9 players.

    It will be interesting to see what the average 2018 cap hit is for the rookie prospect the Pats draft this weekend.
