the report is wrong and the article is wishfull thinking... every site I have went to has pats around 20 mil or so under the cap but that was before the welker deal... so at this point they are 10 or so and like everyone else need to sign draft picks.. not to mention someone might want to spend some money on Def..lol they were only 32nd in the league and the main reason they lost the superbowl... The guy behind the article is full and clear a major pats fan on bleacher report

Now if their offense had a real running back, they would just be crazy good. For those who say the pats don't have a big play threat, they do. I believe hernandez and gronk are what you call big play threats, you don't have to run a 4.3 to be put in that category. You just have to have the tools to beat the people covering you, and both of those men are mismatches against most, if not all, NFL linebackers and safeties.

chicago is probably the most likely candidate, they're lacking at WR. matt forte can't do it all by himself

If the Pats are smart, they will go for Mario Williams instead of Wallace.

Welker getting top 5 money, the two TEs eventually, i find it hard seeing the Pats paying almost 30 mil just on 4 recievers at some point, unless they plan on letting welker or hernandez go in the future.

wallace is approaching his prime. no other wr has had a more productive first 3 years in the league than wallace (other than rice and moss).

anyone following the pats know they change their offensive philosophy every 2-4 years (right when their opponents have drafted and thinkthey are ready to stop them).

if the pats gets wallace they wont have to shell out top money for 2 tight ends and can trade 1 for 2 first rounders to some schmuck team like the raiders...

thats how they operate.

or the pats can go out and waste a bunch of money on an adalius thomas type player (their big money free agent signings of defensive players have typically been about as disappointing as their booty of draft picks).

Blah blah blah. They aren't giving up a 1st rounder. Not how they do things. They do the exact opposite every year. The stock draft picks. Wallace is ours this year and we lose him or Brown next. Sucks but true.

If you're worried about losing Wallace, they have you where they want you. The FO isn't worried, they could've cut more ppl and franchised him. They did'nt and I trust that. Especially when they have the ... to cut the old farts who meant alot.

And quit tryingto take away from A. Browns ability. You don't get 1000 because the other guy is getting a double team. In that case Pettigrew would have 1000yds for Detroit. Who's getting the double team out of Cruz and Nicks. Both are good WR's. That double team BS is straight from a blog and its HYPE.

Do yourself a favor and go get NFL Replay and tell me if Brown doesn't make the catches that Wallace drops...
Double team or not.

Bye Mike Wallace, I appreciate your efforts with the Steelers. My team will be fine with the 1st round compensation. The Steelers FO thinks that they'll be fine without him, and so do I. Mikle Tomlin is a better evaluator of WR's than Cowher. Sweed was an injured BUST

I've been saying that all year. No one is giving yup a huge contract AND a 1st rounder.
