Expensive SB trophies?
Ya but they signed a 5'6" on stilts dude that can run real fast for chump change....
Actually that shows a smart front office. Not all signings work out especially when injuries come into play. At least they were smart enough to move on and eat it - not like us with Santonio and Bart Scott.
At least those SOBs cut sunk costs.
We keep our garbage after we guarantee their contracts.
Lets not forget super jag calvin pace.Actually that shows a smart front office. Not all signings work out especially when injuries come into play. At least they were smart enough to move on and eat it - not like us with Santonio and Bart Scott.
It is now being reported that he did not disclose a previous injury to the knee, They reported to the league the reason for the cut as failure to report injury. The SB was two stage, 2/3 at signing and 1/3 next year. The pats are going after both. But it is very tough to get back the money so they will probably have to eat the 1st portion, but will likely get the 2nd stage rescinded and get back the cap space from the signing if they are successful.
I know there is issues regarding the disclosure of injuries if a team trades a player. But I guess when your a FA The old team can not provide any medical information as you are no longer a member of that team. I guess you go by the players statement regarding past injuries and your physical.
He was scheduled to get surgery next week and I guess the pre-op mri disclosed the previous injury/repair or that someone on the Bengals staff ratted him out.

I see it like this. They released a D lineman that had 6.5 sacks after they gave him3.5 mil. Then they have someone in line who is better. It's not about the money, it's about who makes the team better.
We have a few guys on this team that have guaranteed money this year, but they will keep them on instead of dropping them and developing better talent.
That's business 101. You realize a bad investment and you cut your loses. Bonus means nothing. He was taking up a roster spot. They factored in so many dollars of wastage and he was one of the people that was a waster
Just curious, what does the Pats DLine depth look like now? Obviously Big Vince is the stalwart, but what else are they rolling out these days? Are guys like Love, Pryor, Deadrick and Brace in line for big minutes?
I haven't followed their defense all that much this offseason.
id take those pats 3 SB trophies in a heartbeat
