    We are paying him 529K for the rest of this season.  His next 2 years there is no guaranteed money.  It's fine.

    On what planet is 3.5 mill a year "Alot of money"???? This trade is a good one as it fills a position of need and is for relatively cheap compensation and money.

    The Patriots played more 3-4 against the Dolphins. Sopoaga gives them a guy experienced at manning the nose in that type of front.

    Because the guy just signed a 3 year 12 million contract. And the NFL has this thing called the salary cap.

    I think this is an excellent trade with little cap implications.  The Pats have the room if I recall correctly.

    Yea, that 3.5 mill a year under the cap is really gonna put us in salary cap hell... Blow it out your a55.. You'd probably be in the crowd complaining if BB hadnt made a move to shore up the DL.

    The arguing in this thread misses the point.  We basically gave up nothing to acquire a guy that will fill a position of need for a little over 500K this season.  Beyond that we owe this guy nothing.  None of his remaining contract is guaranteed.  We can cut him if he sucks.  If he somehow becomes an all-pro he is a bargain at 3.5 for the remaining 2 years and if he is somewhere in between we can restructure him if we really want to keep him.  There is no downside to this deal.

    As PCM mentioned, the Pats are on the hook for no guarantees.  529k for the rest of 2013; if they want him back in 2014, it's 3.75 million, and 3.5 million in 2015.  But, they can cut him at any point with no dead money hit.

    Agreed and all it cost was a few draft positions between the 5th and 6th rounds.

    I'm happy for the move. We need a big body in tbere. I'm glad there are no salary guarantees. It sounds like philly is on the hook for most of his salary.  And Xx I wasn't complainig. Sounds lime a great deal but if wd were responsible for 2 more years and 8 mil not so good.

    excellent. now hopefully kelly and talib can become healthy and our defense will be fine with fletcher taking mayos spot at coverage LB.  specially with dobson's improved play I am excited for this team come playoffs.

    I believe that although his contract was evenly split over the three years at 3.5 each, a large chunk of this years was bonus money.  As you said, Philly is on the hook for most of it. This is low price tag for a guy that will probably get substantial playing time.

    This guy's photo on B/R was downright scary.....

    No idea as to playing crdentials but Philly dropped 3.25M and for 500K we presumably

    get a run stuffing guy.....Did I get that about right?

    He's closer to Love than Wilfork in terms of talent, but he's a better option than Vellano. I like JV, but 300 pounds does not make a NT.

    He and Chris Jones ought to make a better duo. But which 2012 draft pick gets axed? Wilson or Bequette?

    Love this move! Got him for practically nothing. The potential outweighs the cost by far
