    23mil hit in the 4th and 5th year. Looks really like a 3 year deal.

    The reality here is that the Pats would have loved to keep Trey and sign him long term. He did everything you could ask for in a player.
    However, The Pats don't operate in a vacuum and there are other teams out there that impact what we can and want to do with players. Most of us knew that at least one team was going to throw stupid money at him and as we saw, that's exactly what the Lions did.
    It's not in our interest to match it or offer anything like that. When you throw out contacts like the one the Lions just gave him, you basically kill the middle class of the team and tremendously weaken team depth. You can't have both.
    I loved Trey and am enormously grateful fall he did for the Pats. Especially appreciative of his work ethic and professionalism. And I wish him the very best. But to pay him that kind of money weakens the team more than retaining him at that salary would. Unfortunately, he had to go. Same with Brown. Sensible economics in football is not sexy but for the smart GM's like ours, it has to be a driving, albeit unpopular force.

    This is why we traded for Bennett. Don't worry, I feel we will also take a dip in the draft for an edge player.

    Hmmm, a 0.001% er math problem for you:

    How much of that 2019 $29M (salary and bonus) will Taxachusetts be able to claim he earned in 2019 while a MA resident?

    So what is his net after fed and state? (Other/more numeric than the obvious, more than you will see in your lifetime)?

    Yeah, he's gotta hate it.

    Kid was in kind of a tough spot. He really has no choice but to sign a crazy deal like that. Can't leave millions on the table when you play a position in the trenches like that.
