I've seen this posted a lot here since I joined.
People are saying that is how Belichick operates. But with the Edelman extension at his age, Brady being under contract until he is 42 and some of the older players he often brings in I don't see this.
What are examples of "one season too early"?
Maybe McGinest or Vrabel but those seemed to me like just the right time not a season early.
Can someone show me where this idea that Belichick does this comes from?
A lot of the older players he brings in are 1 year 'show me' deals, and about half dont even make the opening day roster.
and moving on doesnt mean traded. its the same when he lets guys walk as FA
Vinatieri (his biggest "error" here, but we still have Gostkowski)
