    If he can run the route tree, has good hands , decent speed and can relay coverages why not sign him up. IMO, yes a 2nd round pick or 3rd rounder would cost less, but the Pats brass can use those picks on D side of the ball. Granted this is good draft for WR and DBs, but it'd be next impossible to find a talent like Moss. Sanders is a known quantity with NFL production. If this happens the Pats can look for a bookend for Jones or LB with great coverage skills or a CB with their first three picks.

    I meant that some people will expect, right out of the gate, way more than Sanders can probably bring to the table, but expectations will be very high given the 3rd rd. pick.  If he has a Lloyd-esque year then it will be a success in my eyes.

    I think he def. had a verbal agreement for multi year deal and the 1 year offer is just so Pitt cant match it.

    I think BB's statement was very telling and on par with what I said earlier. When you are evaluating a player already in the NFL it is much easier to project him into your system, when you can see him running NFL routes against NFL defenders.

     




    That's correct but RKrap is on the other Sanders thread saying it's dumb because the draft is WR rich. lol

     

     

     

     



    And our scouting dept. has been broke for quite some time. Money Mouth   I'll take the sure shot over potential All Day.

     

     




    It's not scouting. It's Brady's incredibly high threshold for "trust" and our complex offense which makes the jump for a college player so intense. Some of it is on Brady, too.  He can't be off in LA all offseason with new picks or FAs in here.

    I'd rather they go mid rounds to try to bring a guy along the first year on the back end of the roster, keep burying one on the PS, and do that v.s. hoping a phsically gifted player from the NCAA works in RD 2 or 3, this year's draft not necessarily withstanding.

     

    Hence, why this approach with Sanders is a good one.   I wish we could bid on a FA WR ever 2-3 years too, but BB will never do that for obvious reasons.

    The only other option would be a trade, which we know he's done. 

    Lloyd is the only example in FA in recent years and he took less to play here. 

    One from FA, one likely in the draft, probably early. Plus, you need younger vets to bring the draft pick along anyway.

    If the offseason at WR is Amendola, Donald Jones, Michael Jenkins, Sanders and DeAndre Hopkins, call me a very happy Pats fan.

     



    I dont want to go down this road really, but IMO, yes Patseng is right, They have had problems in general. I am not gonna put it all on Brady but I believe he is to blame on GAME Days! Brady is a great QB, but he isnt payed to coach. So  I blame Brady only for having tunnell vision during games but really he hasnt had much options so can I really get mad at him for Ocho cathing 9 balls when he was taken off the field after every catch? was that Brady changing personell? NO. So now back to Russ' point. He said its not scouting but thats false because why didnt Chad Jackson catch on in any other offense?? I think  its very hard to ask a WR to be able to read defenses like a QB coming out of college. I could evne point to Rusty in the past saying Pitts offense was Simple and if so, why would Sanders fit right  in. Dont discount personality and ability to mesh on the field as well. Brady to Wes was great but would it have been if They werent Great Friends?!?! 

     

     



    I am not on another thread saying it is dumb...

     

    I questioned trading a 3rd rounder for Sanders if the deal is for 1 year

    I also questioned if signing Sanders for 3/$10-$12 with $4 guaranteed is a good idea based on the scout reports and his production for the Steelers.

    If the draft was not WR rich, I can understand...but the Pats can get a stud WR for much less that Sanders is commanding



    that was my initial response
