    [QUOTE=PatsFanTX;4389760]Just like the stock market, past performance is not indicative of future results.

    I hope you are wrong on this as Williams would be a godsend to the Pats defense.[/QUOTE]

    I hear you, and that is the same argument I always use with Botonti when regarding the Jets and drafting WR's.

    Its just hard to allready peg Williams to the Pats like its a done deal.

    Oh, no where do I think this is a done deal.

    I just hope the Pats pursue him with a concerted effort.

    You know he will eventually end up with the team who gives him the most money.

    Reminder that Charles Johnson got 6/$72m w/$32m guaranteed. Mario is getting more than that and I think an argument can be made that he's the most significant UFA since Reggie White.

    [QUOTE=Grantland]To be quite honest, Mario Williams shouldn't be a free agent. The Houston Texans failing to negotiate a contract extension with Williams before his deal expired will go down as one of the great mistakes in league history, like the Eagles failing to lock up Reggie White, or the Falcons letting Deion Sanders go. Their inability to lock up Williams with the franchise tag is going to be a franchise-defining moment for two teams: the Texans and whatever team is lucky enough to add the most valuable defender in the history of free agency to their roster.[/QUOTE]

    Belichick is a defensive genius the problem is he hasn't had any talent on defense to work with since the 2008 season which is when most of that veteran core left. Give Bell Belichick a player like Mario Williams and watch out.


    Watch the last Super Bowl. There were several key plays where Belichick called exactly the right defense and his players failed to execute resulting in big plays for the Giants.

    That's correct. Unless some fluke happens and the salary cap gets increased by a huge number in the next 2 weeks there is no way Mario Williams is getting franchise tagged so he is Unrestricted 100%. [B] No draft picks necessary just pay the man.[/B]


    It's funny because the same people telling me there's no way the Jets can create cap room for Mario are the same people who guaranteed on this messageboard and other sites that Mario would be franchise tagged by Houston and there was no way he'd ever leave the Texans.

    Wonder if they have any interest in Hunter for Freeney.

    Due diligence.

    It's a process.

    Considering that Manning and Wayne will already be signed there, this makes sense. A Colts reunion.

    [QUOTE=CraigFL;4389653]It's called due diligence, looking under every rock. If he didn't inquire he wouldn't be doing his job, giving more fodder for the "Can Tanny" crowd.[/QUOTE]

    This is exactly what got him on the hot seat in the first place. Jenkins, Favre, Edwards, Holmes... Just off the top of my head. 3 out of 4 are not on the team. 1 is a cancer.

    [QUOTE=Gastineau99;4389644]@AdamSchefter: Filed to ESPN: Colts are fielding telephone calls from teams interested in trading for perennial Pro Bowl defensive end Dwight Freeney.

    Gotta think Tanny would be in on this one. What do you guys think?[/QUOTE]

    He's not a 3-4 end.

    [QUOTE=detjetsfan;4389693]The Dolphins are going to be amazing next year. Besides Manning they'll be potentially adding Reggie Wayne, Jeff Saturday and now Dwight Freeney.

    Patriots are signing Mario Williams.

    And meanwhile the Jets are signing Patrick Turner and picking up Hunter's option.

    [QUOTE=Gastineau99;4389667]He's a much better athlete than Pace or Thomas. He'd be fine at OLB. 3-4 OLBs don't have to drop in coverage. How often do you see Pace dropping other than into Flats or Hook zone? Rex could move Freeney all over the place.

    [B]if not for his age, I think he's a better fit for us than Mario Williams.[/QUOTE][/B]
