    Pats settle with Fanene; get $1.35 mil credit on 2013 salary cap

    Per Reiss, I guess some of this money went to Nink.

    1a. The Patriots and defensive lineman Jonathan Fanene (represented by the NFL Players Association) settled their grievance within the past week, according to sources, and part of the settlement is that the Patriots won’t have to pay Fanene the final $1.35 million of his $3.85 million signing bonus. When the Patriots had signed Fanene in March of 2012, the contract called for the $3.85 million signing bonus to be paid in multiple installments, with the final $1.35 million on March 31, 2013. We all know what happened -- Fanene never played for the Patriots and the team released him five months after signing him with the new “failure to disclose physical condition” designation. A grievance followed. We can now officially close the book on the Patriots’ failed Fanene signing, with Fanene able to keep $2.5 million of the original signing bonus and the Patriots receiving a credit on their 2013 salary cap.

    Sweet, more money we won't spend on top tier players, you know the kind that could actually help us win Super Bowls.  But it should pay for that solid Gold Toilet Flusher Kraft needs for his Jet

    Bitter much?

    This run, from 2005-now, where they've been consistently one of the best teams, and a SB contender EVERY YEAR has been incredibly frustrating... I mean, Tom Brady and us fans DESERVE MORE! Damn Kraft for buying the stadium and roadblocking the team from leaving town, then buying the whole team, then bringing in an elite coach to help turn the franchise around, then learning to trust the people he hires to do their job and not inject himself, and being the first professional sports owner to privately finance the bulk of his new stadium, and being willing to invest a TON of money into this team....DAMN YOU SCROOGE McKRAFT!

    Which top player do you want them to spend it on? Maybe if the NFL made their decision more quickly, they could have had  chance to use that extra money.
