    If Buffalo wasn’t so damn stubborn about Allen, they should be going after him. Brady would instantly put them in the mix for the Super Bowl

    If the Patriots can get a long term deal with Thuney done that brings his cap hit in a 7M, and a deal with HT to reduce his cap hit, then the Pats have plenty of room to re-sign Brady and have him with a manageable cap hit since signing Brady before he becomes a free agent keeps the dead money from the old contract at 6.75 for this year and next. They could work out a deal in the 3yr/81-90M range rather easily and keep Brady's cap hit for this year manageable.

    Any idea as to what kind of structure that would look like? What are your thoughts?

    I'm thinking something like the following:
    3 yrs - 81M. M 30SB / 53.5M total guaranteed. (1st two years salary)

    year 1 - $1M salary - 10M New SB pro-ration, 6.75M old pro-ration = 17.75M Cap Hit
    year 2 - $22.5M Salary - 10M SB pro-ration - 6.75M old pro-ration = 39.25M cap hit
    year 3 - $27.5M salary - 10M SB pro-ration = 37.5M cap hit.

    The Patriots could add a dummy year at the end like they did with the previous contract to smooth the numbers out some.

    Kontra the genius he's smarter than everyone else. You see he knows BB to be a below average coach while pretty much everyone else on the planet thinks he's the best.

    I agree that the length of the contract may be too long, too much of a commitment for the team to make. That said, it might be possible to use the logic that he suggested with the dummy year, only coming in year three instead.

    Despite not having his starting LT for 8 games and not having his starting center for 16 games and a carousel at WR and not TEs worth a damn, Brady still had good numbers. Still threw for over 4,000 yards. Still had 24TD to only 8 Ints.

    What's YOUR solution?

    Cowgirls are a dog and you know it.

    Bashing BBs record and career is a great way to win an argument. Do you really want to do that?

    Just stop.

    According to Miguel, the Patriots just got 3.25M in sal cap relief from the Aaron Hernandez greivance. This brings their free amount to over 8.6M. With the ability to free up another 27-40M, I could see the Pats getting a deal done as early as today.

    As a lifelong Bulls fan, I never imagined seeing MJ in a different uniform other than the Bulls.

    It happened to basketballs GOAT, it can happen with Brady.

    Hoping he stays though.

    Jordan never won a title until Bird was gone.

    Are you suggesting that BB the GM should have predicted that BB the coach would bench his starting CB for the SB?:D
