    To think we came really close to signing Cameron Wake...

    Rex knew him well, I think he had a cup of coffee with the Ravens. I remember when I went to the senior bowl two years ago, I spoke to Mangini's nephew who was working as a scout for us and he was bummed out that Wake went to Miami because the Jets were really high on him and now it looks like he might be the best pass rusher in the AFC.

    How can a guy on the Dolphins be one of your favorite players? Once your a Dolphin, Patriot, Bill, you're an instant douche.

    He didn't come from Canada, Penn State fans know the guy well. He used to be called Derek Wake when he played at Penn State. The NFL just whiffed on him but the guy made himself into quite a pass rusher in Canada, the Jets and the Fins were both hot on his trail. We had just hired Rex and our situation was a little shaky in terms of credibility while Miami had won the division, he chose Miami but it was close. Mangini's nephew is Jay Mandolesi, I don't know if he's still with the Jets.

    Let me get this straight

    He was signed as a FA in 2005 by the NYG
    He went to Canada after not making the team
    He became a pass rushing monster.

    Imagine what might happen if we send Gholston to Canada...:D
