Don't mock when people feel badly about a FA leaving Fox w/o signing. There is something to the compelling sales pitch.
I didn't even want Steve Smith but that's annoying.

Despite several teams staying involved with Julian Edelman, $$$ isn't what his side hoped.
Pats standing firm with Edelman, but growing more confident in a return.
I think there was the sense that Nicks dogged it this year, and accordingly he was chained in Coughlin's dog-house.Mystic Merlin said:It should be telling that the Giants never even considered retaining him.
He's had lingering knee and foot injuries, and anyone who paid attention to the Giants trainwreck of a season in '13 knows that he had an acrimonious relationship with Coughlin.
EDIT - There's a very good chance the Nicks of '10-'11 is gone for good.
vadertime said:Where would Clarett even fit in? Ridley, Vereen, Bolden, are established in their roles. Unless he's replacing Blount, but he doesn't have the size or body frame to fill the masher role Blount did.
Which may also shed some light on why the Pats offer sheet last year that so easy to match.mpx42 said:Guess Emmanuel Sanders..has some medical red flags. Why he's still unsigned, obviously.
Mugsy's Walk-Off Bunt said:Fine with me, he said, meaning it while simultaneously working the reverse jinx to make sure Spikes doesn't come back to haunt us by injuring one of our impact guys. (Which is to say that I don't worry about him coming back to haunt us with any actual game-changing plays. I suspect Bill has a whole package of plays in a file marked "Spikes is in, pass-pass-PASS, even to fucking SLATER!!!")

He will light up Ridley in the run game and will be 3 yards behind Vereen on a swing pass. I love the guy but Collins and Hightower at the end of the season were way better than Spikes at his peak.tims4wins said:Spikes gets one year at $3.25. Probably disappointed he didn't get a multi year deal. Smart of the Bills.
