    Big Willie

    So Willie came out last week and said he is very open to ending his career in Foxboro while he was a guest on the NFL network. I know many people dont want to bring in older players but at the same time how many times have we heard someone say that we need to bring in "another Willie to make big plays the way he did" plus you can never have enough depth, if he took a friendly contract would you want to see him back in a Pats uniform?

    Nope.  Willie would be good to have on call incase of injuries but I dont think the Patriots should waste a roster spot on him right now.

    Re: Big Willie

    I would bring him in and let him try and make the team if he is still good enough to be at least a back up i would be ok with that as he would help police that locker room. plus he coudl retire a pat and i would love that.

    Killa, I can go along with that, if he can come in and win a job then great love to have him..also agree with you on seeing him retire a Patriot.

    Re: Big Willie

    I wouldn't mind it at all...of course, he'd have to compete for a roster spot like anyone else. Especially if they pick up an OLB in the draft. Another good mentor now that Vrable is gone. I still don't forget all those huge plays he used to make in the postseason. Mostly when they needed one badly late in a close game. They haven't won a SB since Willie Mac left. But the deal would have to be a minimum salary, possibly with some incentives. I suppose it will come down to how many possible openings they might have on the 53 man roster. I wouldn't want them to lose someone promising, but he would truly be another leader in the locker room.

    That dog has lost it's bite.  I'd much rather remember him as the great player he was.

    Re: Big Willie

    Bring him in to compete for the position.I feel this way about a lot of the players that are out there in the free agency.there is no harm in that.if he wins it.its a plus for the pats,and he can retire on a good note.if he dosent beat out whoever,again it would be no loss to the pats,and when that day he does decide to retire.he can sign for one day,and do so if he chooses.

    Re: Big Willie

    I would like to have him retire a Patriot, but thats it. The best case scenario is he makes the team and sits on the bench. I would much rather have a young player with alot of upside in that role.  Big Willie just doesnt have the wheels anymore.

    Re: Big Willie

    Who wouldn't love to see Willie retire as a Patriot. But with the young linebackers we have now and who knows what will come during the draft, I would have to overrule my heart and say no. But in a way, I hope I'm wrong. I will always remember Willie making that 4th down stop in Indy! What a play! Maybe one of the greatest plays in Patriot history. I mean, how big was THAT win. Then to see him tearing off his helmut and running right down the middle of the field. I was in a sports bar here in Atl watching that game. I started jumping up and down, running around in circles. Never ever forget that play!

    Re: Big Willie

    Did anyone see him in NFL Total Access last night?  He was talking how he helped BB change the way he uses OLBs.  I think if he can earn a spot he'll be an on the field coach and teach those young guns we have how to play the game. 

    I think he'll make the team as a backup, specially since Jason Taylor is not making up his mind and will probably end up in Miami.  Willie would be a good addition and play his last year where it all started for him.

    I believe your the Same MVP that said, the Pats have no interest in signing a 37 year old receiver. Good thing BB is in Charge, and signed Galloway anyways. Let's bring back 37 year old Willie "What a Genius Move" Why not Deacon Jones also. Boy Genius

    You don't know the half of it.

    When Minneapolis police attempted to subdue an enraged Eller during a recent DUI arrest, tasers had no effect on the 66-year-old ex-Viking.

    30 years later, this guy is still the baddest motor scooter on the block.
