Lost in some of the hub bub of will the Pats sign him or will they not, and for how much, is the Pats could franchise him. looking at the franchise numbers for CB's (not set in stone) the number would be between $10.5 and $11.2M...
Do the Pats go 1 year at that $$number, rather than try to sign him on the open market?
Hmmm. The cap hell Pats, already with 120+mil committed for 2014? Not sure how that 10 mil hit will fit. Bill has become a victim of his poor cap management after mortaging and remortaging the future by re-doing Brady's deal so many times.
That's easily fixed just like the jests did this past offseason. There is no cap hell, it's an urban myth.
Hmmm, you must have some inside scoop. Will Bill re-do Brady's contract again and push his cap hit back up, maybe to 25 mil for 2015? How many times can you go to the well? Talib & Edelman will be UFAs, need a starting TE, starting NT, all with the 120 mil already committed? Tell me the plan.
