    Re: Vereen & more an indirect result of the Seymour trade....

    Seymour quit drinking the BB kool-aid and was going to become a HUGE headache for the team...his time here was DONE, and Master Hoodie made a great deal, given the circumstances then and what has transpired with draft choices since. He had to decide who was more valuable to the team in the long run, an aging , disgruntled DE or his Hall of Fame QB. (That was one of BB's easiest decisions as head of football operations!) The 2nd #1 has turned into an additional #2 and #1 for a couple of years now so it has become the definitive Patriots gift that keeps on giving...it will, in the long term, be indispensable to keeping the Pats a winning team for the foreseeable future.

    Seymour signed a two year extension for $14M per year. So explain to me how we would have kept him, Mankins, Wilfork (and in the future Ellis and Mayo) without going over the cap ?

    We only truly lost Sey's sevices for 1 year(contact expired after 09 season)...he was a free agent after that...free to shop his services anyplace so in order to keep him it may have been something close to the Peppers deal although on a smaller scale..5 years 60 mill with 40 guarenteed...no way the Pats were going to match that or go that high...he would have left & the best we would have gotten was a 3rd round compensatory pick....Bill made the right move & we will reap those rewards for years to come....

    It was Seymore for solder. the other pick was our assigned pick. Even if it was traded its not part of the Seymore trade.

    Re: Vereen & more an indirect result of the Seymour trade....

    I understand your thinking on the above comment but what happened with that pick was a indirect result of the Seymour trade....the Pats got the guy they wanted with the raiders pick....if they didn't have that raiders pick they would have had to use their 1st rounder & probably an additional 3rd rounder to move up enough to get Solder before another team got him....so INDIRECTLY we saved a 3rd rounder...Also, because the Pats got the guy they wantedthey were able to trade away their 1st rounder for an additional 2nd rounder this year as well as a !st rounder next year,,,they couldn't have done any of those things without 1st having the Raiders pick.....Indirectly they saved a 3rd round pick,picked up the additional 2nd rounder this year & another 1st next year which they couldn't have done without 1st having the Raiders pick....INDIRECTLY one led to all the other outcome durring the draft....
