    I want very badly to keep him. A lot of our receiving team is short term assets as BB has ramped us up to take advantage of the last couple years of Brady. Dorsett on the other hand is just entering his prime right now and has years of life in his legs.

    We're going to need people for Stidham to throw to. I'd like one of those people to be Dorsett.

    I never said he doesn't deserve a new contract. I also never talked about his production beyond this season. And I do believe AB is a one-year rental, so he's not part of any long-term convo. All I was ever saying is I don't see an in-season contract extension happening (though I obviously could be wrong). Brady loves him and he's had two really good games to start, albeit against a D that hasn't yet gelled and another team that may be one of the worst we've seen when it's all said and done. And, as @Deus Irae pointed out, 4WR sets could be the only scenario where he stays seeing considerable playing time if the guys ahead of him stay on the field. But that's it.

    Dorsett is fast becoming a fan favorite, and I'll say again I really like him too, but let's not send him to Canton yet or overestimate him. He has great hands and is always where he should be, which are great tools for our offense, but he is still a mostly limited receiver who is benefiting a lot from playing with the GOAT. But hey, he's a lot better than Reche Caldwell.:D

    We should sign Emmanuel Sanders to replace AB in the off season.

    You keep on focusing on 2019 production. I just don't think that it matters. We need a wide receiver for 2020. We have one who plays well with Brady and knows our system very, very well. If we can, I think that he should signed for the future.

    I’d love to keep him, it all depends if AB stays past this season.

    We can keep Edelman/Gordon/Harry/Dorsett and we good with Burkhead and White catching the rock.

    I don't see AB staying. We would all be thrilled to extend Gordon.

    3 years, 13 million maybe? I don't think he gets more than that.

    I would be happy to get him for 3/$18M. As always, the contract structure is important.

    Plus, there's zero chance they have Brown past this year.

    There was a large chunk where they weren't playing/using him because they were busy forcing the ball to Gordon. He also caught the only two TD passes in the postseason.

    Are you saying he should have played instead of Gordon?

    $6M per year is is just me throwing out a rough estimate.

    What do you think a good (realistic) extension amount would be on a basic per-year amount, not getting into guarantees yet?

    I don’t think you extend him now.

    And it's fine that you feel that way. I just don't think we'll see any extension happening before the end of the season for him. That was my point from the very beginning.

    What impresses me is his precise route running and the confidence that #12 has in him.. so my vote is to extend him, if the Pats want him they can do the numbers that will work for both parties..

    It's funny how 3 weeks ago a select few thought PD was on the bubble. :confused:

    Lock him up
    AB will be long gone by next year if not sooner.
    JE is on borrowed time (refer to Wes Welker’s rapid decline)
    Any future Gordon contract will be incredibly team friendly
    And 2 rookie contracts

    Dorsett could have a long and productive future on this team with his role expanding yearly

    The purpose of extending him now is to avoid a price war at the end of the season.
