    Would unfortunately be a very good move for NE if they succeed. Would definitely hurt the Steelers quite a bit as well, losing Sanders on top of Wallace would put a big dent in that offense.

    Agreed and that's why they did it...better to hurt an AFC opponent than an NFC one...plus the tender on Cruz was a 1st as opposed to a 3rd here....

    Wonder if this makes CB more prevalent in Miami drafting plans?

    Probably takes NE out of the "trade up for Tavon Austin" conversation as well....

    He was actually the one RFA I thought we should make a run at until they tagged him with a 3rd rd pick.

    Hmm, and McLain is chatting with the Ravines as well

    Everyone is ****ting on the Welker for Amendola switch, but the Pats have made some pretty good offseason moves this year, trying to milk the waning Brady years for all they're worth.

    They'll have to. When they let Welker walk their star QB was all "Is Waning Brady gonna have to choke a *****?"

    Amendola has a problem staying healthy. It's been 2 seasons since he's played a full 16 game season.

    I'm tired of giving them the benefit of the doubt on any and all signings. They can suck my balls.

    Eh it is a pretty low risk signing if it happens....3rd rounder for Sanders who is 26, fast and due to break out....

    plus only due 2.5 M....man Pitt cant let this guy walk over 2.5, they would have a worse WR core than Miami last year if they do....

    This is good news. If pit decides not to match, the pats* will draft in the first & second rds and basically call it a day. They'll only have:

    nah, not this year. I know we keep saying this and wondering why the hell does the rest of the league continue to trade with him but the value is not there. Maybe it makes a little sense for a team to trade back into the first (29th), but I don't see the need to jump up to the 59th when equal talent will be available. Everyone will know the pats* will be desperate. Plus how many times do you think they'll trade back?

    Interesting take on this situation here:

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nfl--will-pats-later-sign-emmanuel-sanders-to-longer-deal--210519500.html;_ylt=AndLRsbIm8R8LtJydEX2UR85nYcB;_ylu=X3oDMTQ0aThqN20wBG1pdANGRUFUVVJFRCBNZWdhdHJvbiBTUE9SVFMgRlAEcGtnAzE0NjQ3YWYyLWNhYTMtMzdlYS04NTk4LTA5OWVlMmM3ZjJjZARwb3MDMgRzZWMDbWVnYXRyb24EdmVyAzkwNmI1MTQzLWEyMjgtMTFlMi04YmZmLTg3N2E0ZGRmYTJjNg--;_ylg=X3oDMTFpNzk0NjhtBGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDBHBzdGNhdANob21lBHB0A3NlY3Rpb25z;_ylv=3

    Sounds like Bellicheat up to being his typical d-bag self.

    Seems strange to me he'd want to cough up a third round pick, and 2.5 million for a guy who hasn't done much. Sounds like he's just backin the Steelers into a corner, or he's already got an agreement with Sanders for a longer deal. Which... would be considered tampering in a way... although it sounds like there's no rule to nail them for it.

    How is he a d-bag and how is that tampering? There's no rules against anything he did.
     
  18. No big mystery why NE is making him an offer. He would be their version of Hartline. He is a good reciever that plays the outside which is an area that NE is lacking in. Signing Sanders gives Brady another area of the field to attack. NE is in a win now mode.

    Whats baffling to me is Pitt taking this risk on losing him. Are they just trying to match an offer to try to get him cheaper then giving him an extension or is there perhaps a poision pill in his contract preventing them from resigning him to a reasonable money contract. Thats how BB got Welker from us. It just seems strange that they would let both Wallace and Sanders both leave.

    We said the same about Brandon Lloyd. maybe Sanders fits the system better, but IMO, the problem was there were not enough balls to go around. If Sanders is the #4 option behind Gronk, Hern, and Amendola, then he's a very good 4th receiving, but maybe an overpaid one considering how many balls he will end up catching. His value is more likely to go up when Gronk is hurt again.

    deleted the off topic posts... getting back to the subject at hand. I'm floored that the Pats are on the verge of stealing this guy for a 3rd round pick. AND HAVING TO SIGN HIM FOR JUST $2.5M for ONE YEAR. I mean I don't blame the Pats for trying, but the fact that it has a chance of actually going thru freaks me out. Scary freaky. :shifty:

    Stealers matched the offer

    Do agree that the NFL commentariat tends to give the patsies BJ's whenever they try or do sign anyone.

    It's as if the Haynesworth/Ocho stuff never happened
