one the pats cant afford him.not with all the needs they need on the team.plus he isnt happy,or want to be with the pats,and dont need any negativity in the locker room.and now that it has been leaked out the pats may drop him.no team will trade for him,knowing he will be released.

i don't think the knowledge of the pats wanting to dump thomas is what's keeping other teams from trade for him. if the value is right, it does not make sense for teams interested in him to wait until he's cut because then each team will have to compete against other interested teams, for his services.
the real problem for the pats is that, except for the jets, no team is interested in thomas. he's 32, has a history of tanking and being a whiner, and is expensive. expensive basically eliminates any team with a record below 500. if you look at the the remaining 4-3 teams, they're mostly set at de (i don't know if he would be a good de anyway). that leaves you with a few 3-4 teams, who are mostly also set at olb. it just so happens the only teams who might be interested in an olb are all in the afc east.
miami: taylor is getting old, but why would you replace taylor with a thomas?
buffalo: perhaps, just because they are trying to switch to 3-4, but unless they find a nt, they probably would not spend on an old olb.
that leaves us with nyj: part of me says it would be foolish to let him go to the jets and part of me says maybe he's harmless after all. that said, with the uncapped year, i'd keep him until at least a third of the way into the season, just to minimize the damage if he's still capable of causing the pats some.
