    I wouldn't be surprised to see one or two more in camp . . . we need some competition to upgrade the level of talent and diversity of this group.

    Perfect deal.  What I would have wanted. Around 4, no more than 3 years.

    I'm glad he signed for reasonable money and hopefully people will understand that he's not really a deep threat. At least he's not some dope that won't understand the offense (see Ocho Cinco)...nor is he at the age when he's lost too many steps (see Ocho Cinco). 

    Now all we need to do is get some people that can play in the secondary, some linebackers that can cover and two 34 type defensive lineman that will keep Vince from getting doubled virtually every single play. Maybe then we will be able to force a team to at least one three and out during the Super Bowl.

         The terms seem surprisingly reasonable. It does appear that Lloyd took less money to play for the Pats.

    I think it's pretty cool he wanted to come here.  Speaks volumes. With Ochocinco taking a cut and being healthier than Branch, I look forward to Brady not throwing INTS on 1st downs in the playoffs.

    That's a pretty cool picture of Lloyd (a guy that obviously likes Brady...unlike one guy here). I wonder why Lloyd took less money to come catch passes here? Geez it couldn't be because of Tom Brady, could it? Nah it's got to be because of our mastery of the NFL salary cap.

    Yes. More playaction makes any WR and Tom Brady more lethal an less predictable, Jersey dork.

    Now, you're getting it!

    I could see someone in rd 4 like: - Ryan Broyles, a rd 2 talent who will go on the PUP for 6 games, learn from Branch and then replace him next year. - Jarious Wright who played with Mallett for 2 seasons at Arkansas and can continue to develop chemistry in practive with him so if/when Tom finally moves on Mallett has his wes welker/troy brown type - T.Y. Hilton, a burner who will be most needed adding some life into the return game

    As much as I'd love to believe it was Brady I think McDaniels had more of a influence than Brady. Brady was just marshmallow topping, BB was whip cream, the Pats winning ways is the cherry

    EDIT: craving slip up typed McDonalds and meant McDaniels

    One quality Lloyd has is exceptional route running ability. Everywhere he has been the most positive aspect of his game has been his ability to get open and often of deep routes. He may not have that Mike wallace style speed that leaves people in the dust but he makes up for it in knowing where he has to be at every point of his route getting in and out of his breaks crisper then most WR's, add to that is vertical (still reportedly 36" plus) and his plus hands and you get the circus catches as well.
    I am all over this and like I said months ago if he isn't a Patriot I would be shocked!
    Landry is next I think, he wants to make a stop with the Jets but why would he go there even if it was for a bit more money when you can play here for several more chances at a championship.

    I'm shocked by it. I assumed that he was going to get at least $6M a year. he's getting a lot less than what worse receivers got during this offseason.

    Who is McDonald? The WR with the Rams?

    DaBlade, don't wait to long on Landry. He's already said he won't sign a deal with any team until he makes his rounds unless a team gives into his demands. He's got meetings set up with Phi, Lions, Beras, and Jets after NE. To me it sounds like he' not going to pull a Lloyd and take less money to be with the Pats and I doubt the Pats will get into a bidding war for his services.

    That;s right. He only stopped into NE to drive price and to hear what BB has to say.

    We'll see, but he would need to take less than he expects to play here.

    Landry is a smart player and I am not saying he will take a lot less but a little wouldn't suprise me. SO the Pats have a shot... and if he expects top money he isn't worth it as hurt as he has been. He would need a deal with incentives for me to get close to top money for him. But I think there is still a good shot.

    Good signing.

    Now they can focus on the secondary and some DE/OLB help in the draft--though if that center from Wisconsin (Konz) slips down past the 20th pick it wouldn't kill me to see BB trade up a few spots from #27 to grab him. The rest of the O-line is solid and while I like Connolly, I'm not sure he's the long-term answer at center.

    Landry almost held out his rook year because he wanted more money in his rook deal. It's clear he's after money if he won't consider an offer unless it meets his demands before going to other teams because he's searching for the highest offer. I don't blame him because he might never play again if that Achilles gets worse so might as well go for the cash. The Pats still have a shot but given the contracts given to the other former injured players are min value deals I don't think the Pats will pay as much as those other teams for Landry's service nor should they given that he is still a injured player, who's added considerable bulk during IR without knowing how it will affect his play, has had multiple injures limiting his games played over 2 years, and who's production last year was seriously affected by those injures
