    Derrick Mason resigned...now what?

    I really thought the Pats would go hard after Derrick.  Guess it's back to hoping the draft picks (old or new) come through.

    im thinking either trading for Malcom Floyd, that would create a mismatch on D's because of his size. He and Moss are both deep threats.

    or

    Draft Golden Tate. Great speed and hands. Along with signing someone like Josh Reed.

    How about they go to the 3 TE offense? Really though they could always sign the other 81. They lost out on the TE Fells from the Rams,that only leaves them Crumpler for the moment and he hasn't signed either. I don't know what happened to Josh Reed but it's still early in the FA process.

    Re: Derrick Mason resigned...now what?

    I know a lot of people are tired of hearing it but... T.O.?

    I know it sounds crazy and unthinkable to put T.O. and Moss on the same team but look at the reasons why it could end up working...

    A few weeks ago, several media outlets said that there are really only two potential players for T.O... Baltimore and Cincinatti.. Both now look unrealistic due to acquisitions of Boldin and Bryant respectively.

    That being said, T.O.'s $$$ value is definitely declining to the point where if he wants any team to sign him, he'll have to sacrifice all leverage in negetotations... basically putting himself at bargain status.  The Patriots love their bargains.

    My final reason is that Moss is heading into a contract year and T.O. running out of time... the two may not have a problem with sharing catches.

    I can just picture T.O sitting in the Patriots office getting ready to sign his contract. Kraft gives him a slap on the back and hands him a pen...Owens puts his hand out takes the pen...and drops it.

    What about Torry Holt?  He certainly isn't young but last year he put up 50 receptions for 700 yards with a nice 14 yards per reception in a very inconsistent Jaguars offense.  

    He's on the decline but nobody in the world could argue he wouldn't be a huge upgrade over Sam Aiken on the outside opposite Moss.

    Great, another 33+ WR. The last over 33 year old we signed worked out so well...

    Josh Reed is not a deap threat and thats what we need opposite Moss. J. Reed will only be a back-up to Edelmann.

    I hope they get Malcolm Floyd, T.O or another big and fast receiver. But please not some unproven rookie from the draft....we cant wait several seasosns for someone to develop.

    pyegian-I agree Tory Holt would be a nice fit at least bring him in for a look see. Holt was on ESPN moday breaking down plays, talking about running routes,etc. He wants to play this year, he did say he prefers the NFC over the AFC.

    "Josh Reed is not a deap threat and thats what we need opposite Moss. J. Reed will only be a back-up to Edelmann."

    Why exactly do we need a deep threat opposite Moss??  Moss is a deep threat himself and has never been known as a guy that makes the tough catches over the middle.  When we had Stallworth (a deep threat) opposite Moss, he lost his starting job to Gaffney who was more of a possession receiver and good route runner.  That's what the Pats need to complement Moss.  Eventually they will need a homerun hitter to succeed Moss but for the next yr I don't think that's what they need most in WR.  Everybody looks for the big splash factor but solid and dependable would be fine.

    I agree and just because I live in my mom's basement dosn't mean that I am wrong.
