Default Re: Keyshawn to the Patriots?

Look there is absolutely no way that.......ummmm...ok i've learnt my lesson after Moss.

Lets wait and see shall we?

If this rumor forces an AFC team up the ante to get Keyshawn then all the better, personally I think the Steelers could do worse than ofer him a 1 year incentive laden contract to get back on track.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I'm probably wrong though since they are the damn Patriots.
It doesn't matter what team it is, you?re absolutely right. They have five or six receivers who potentially could all find starting possessions on other teams. Not to mention, Meriweather who has had some past behavioral problems. Even the Patriots can't stop Randy Moss when he is not happy. They aren't magic, they're lucky. Lucky that a major star hasn't exploded in a Patriot uniform, yet.

Well thats a shame, maybe Tomlin can exert a new fresher perspective on their attitude towards FA.

Signing players with questionable temperaments to long term contracts is a bad idea, but short term, low risk show-me-what-you-got contracts give both sides motivation to achieve.

Yeh, I think that the Patriots have the very best coach in the league right now in Belichick and they will play hard for him or they will find the door prettty quick I believe.. I just hope that the Patriots do like the Lakers did in the NBA a few years back when they got those 5 former NBA All Stars and then the injuries and the egos took over and they flopped... Good Luck Pats...

Teams that have approached him -- New England, Tennessee, Oakland, even Denver -- have discussed veteran-minimum type contracts, Johnson prefers a salary-cap-friendly two- or three-year deal.

It is hard for Johnson to fathom how receivers from his draft class -- Terry Glenn, Marvin Harrison, Terrell Owens, Eddie Kennison and Joe Horn -- are making big dollars and Johnson can't find similar-type offers on the open market.

Right now, the situation looks to be in the fourth quarter, in its crucial stage. If Johnson cannot finalize what he feels is a fair offer in the coming days, then he is prepared to turn his back on football, walk away and turn his attention to other business interests.
i understand his draft class is still making lots of dough but he definitely doesnt have the production of t.o. or harrison. im amazed the chiefs arent interrested. hes gotta be as good as kennison.
