Appearing on Friday's edition of NFL Network's Super Bowl Live, Forte suggested that he would be willing to take less money to join a Super Bowl contender in 2016.

"It's not even about the money," Forte emphasized. "I want to be in the Super Bowls."

Just imagine having a top 10 RB in the league along with a pass catching back like Dion...

Yeah, he's retiring. He didn't specify that when he initially posted laugh.gif

And he's finished the last 3 seasons on IR, so it probably was the right decision.

I always liked Mayo though pimp.gif

Some beat writer mentioned that he's the type of guy to get brought back to be on the staff in some way.

I'd love to see my man Mayo as a LB coach. Dude was a stud the few seasons he was healthy always leading the team in tackles and really doing the dirty work on D. It's a shame he could never stay healthy near the end but he had a more than solid career, glad he was at least able to enjoy a ring last season before hanging them up smokin.gif
post #38 of 722
I hope we don't sign Forte, I don't think he has much left in the tank. if it happens, its gotta be on the cheap.

Congrats Mayo, loved to watch him play. Also doesn't force the team to make a tough decision.

In regards to Forte, I'm confident that NE realizes what he is at this stage in his career and won't overpay for him. I'd personally love to see him on this team, but for the right price.

New deal links Tom Brady to Patriots through 2019
By Mike Reiss
ESPN.com

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have agreed to a two-year contract extension through the 2019 season, NFL sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini.

Brady had two years left on his contract, paying him $9 million in 2016 and $10 million in 2017. Brady's salary-cap charge for 2016 was scheduled to be a team-high $15 million, and the extension will likely lower that number.

The Patriots have about $13 million in salary-cap space and are in the beginning stages of planning for possible extensions with a core group of defenders whose contracts expire after the 2016 season. That group includes linebackers Jamie Collins and Dont'a Hightower, defensive end Chandler Jones and cornerback Malcolm Butler.

The deal with Brady is not yet signed and may not be for a little while, sources said.

Brady turns 39 in August, and the new deal gives him the chance to play into his 40s, something he has expressed an interest in doing.

Backup Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, a 2014 second-round draft choice out of Eastern Illinois, is signed through the 2017 season.

Chandler...i was really shocked he didn't contribute more, to be honest. dude used to really give us fits when he was on the Bills. thought he would have been super reliable for us. especially after pre-season and his debut against Pitt.

LaFell...actually would have been willing to give this guy a pass. he was huge for us a year ago. i think injuries and sitting out the start of the year really impacted his year. i think he could have contributed this coming year, but at the same time, not a huge loss. interested to see who they bring in. they've got to have someone in mind (FA or draft) if they just cut him loose. i don't think he's a guy that they expect to be available come training camp.

yeah. we're being patient as usual. basically locking up some our key and role guys, or picking up their options

Brady
Gronk
Branch
Coleman

Not sure what the word is on Hicks, but I think they're trying to bring him back. Not sure if the Branch option getting picked up affects that or not.


Tavon Wilson will not return as a Patriot. I'm fine with it. So long



FAs I'd love to bring on:

Forte
Weddle
Janoris Jenkins or Sean Smith (mega reach here laugh.gif )

I'm sure things will pick up after tomorrow. No one came off the market that I would have thought BB was looking at anyways.

what do you guys think about our RB situation?

 

Dion Lewis should be back healthy but i think hes far from an every down back unless they mold the playbook around it.

 

i think we might miss out on Forte to Green Bay.

 

i wouldnt mind resigning Blount but hes really just a teamer at this point, nothing great, but nothing really bad i guess

post #51 of 722
I think Forte should be their main target if they can get him at a low cost. I feel like he fits what NE does very well and he can be productive enough at this age, especially if we also have Dion Lewis back there.

I've heard Bilal Powell get mentioned as well, which I wouldn't mind, although I don't think the Jets let him leave. Outside of those 2, I have no idea who'd actually be available as idk if Doug Martin, Lamar Miller, Alfred Morris or Bobby Rainey are actually options for them.

It looks like Marvin Jones was considering NE, but went to Detroit instead. Maybe Sanu makes the right choice nerd.gif

at RB...I do think we're OK. if we get Forte, great. but i'm not looking to pay a ton for him at all. Powell is a pretty great fit from what I've read and seen and would be considerably cheaper. plus we really handicap the Jets.

I know it was discussed in the NFL thread, but what was Gronk's tweet all about nerd.gif

I'm not sure if he was expressing his displeasure with the structure of his extension or stating that he's essentially taking a pay cut, but he's not putting in work just for the money.

It may be irrelevant either way, but I thought it was interesting.

was it you or @amarano that said he probably meant he doesn't work hard for money, he works hard to win and be a champion? i think that was spot on and what he meant. maybe a slight and the most minor possible jab at the org, but i think he meant he's here to win, not for $.

yea that was me.

 

i said thats what he meant and and that hes not the sharpest knife in the drawer which is why it came across convoluted on his part.
