    There was an article just the other day on how DISRESPECTED Brady must & should feel with the Pats* getting rid of Welker despite Brady taking a hometown discount. And this is the SECOND time it's happend to Tom. Yet you use Sanders VISITING the Pats* as an example of Ben not being valued and Brady being valued. Right.

    Receivers in the past have headed for the door before Haley showed up. And AB was thrilled with his long-term contract and Plax actually came back. So once again, your point - whatever it is - makes no sense.
    And Scottie Montgomery leaving for Kentucky? Kuglar leaving for UTEP? Those aren't exactly plum jobs, and those coaches would rather work there, than work with Todd Haley on one of the NFL's premier teams.

    The same "issues" that followed Haley when he arrived, are now invading this franchise: Once you work with him, you want to be away from him.

    I'll take a 3rd rounder for him. Then draft Keenan Allen. Upgrade and a player in return? Sign me up.

    I believe it was reported that Montgomery got a $500k raise.

    Patriots bringing in Emmanuel Sanders for a visit

    For a moment, let us set aside how it ended between the Patriots and Wes Welker and consider how it all began.


    Six years ago, Welker was a restricted free agent, and the Dolphins tendered him at the second-round level. The Patriots shrugged and worked out a deal with Miami, sending second- and seventh-round picks to the Dolphins to get their man.


    So yes, the Patriots have had success in restricted agency.


    Now, they could be doing a little due diligence on another RFA wide receiver.

    According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, will host Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders on a visit.

    The Steelers tendered the 26-year-old Sanders at the original-round level, meaning an interested team would have to surrender a third-round pick were

    Pittsburgh to decline to match an offer sheet. Sanders is one of five restricted free agents on PFT’s Free Agency Hot 100.

    In three seasons, Sanders has caught 94 passes for 1,230 yards and seven TDs, gaining 13.7 yards per catch. In Pittsburgh, he would likely start opposite of Antonio Brown after the departure of Mike Wallace.

    Sanders’ athleticism and quickness are major assets. He had some foot issues earlier in his career, but he played in all 16 games a season ago.

    Moreover, his value to the Steelers is at its greatest, considering Wallace has moved on.

    This is a situation to watch.

    If Sanders goes, along with Wallace, Lewis, Mendenhall, Starks, Colon etc... a wheel, somewhere, has fallen off this wagon.

    The Pats won't over-pay for him....If the Pats offer him fair market value and the Steelers don't match, then we know what the FO thinks of him...

    If the Steelers really want him they can make it happen. There is no way someone will offer him a bid deal...He hasn't done that much.

    The hardest part about losing him will be that he knows the system and the Steelers way.

    I am fine with trading him for a 3rd round pick.

    But that's the thing- 'fair market value' for Sanders is likely to be more than the Steelers can afford. Given the current Cap situation, the Steelers really need Sanders to play on the RFA tender.

    Fair market value up front is more than they can afford...That is for sure.

    If he signs an offer sheet and the Steelers don't match...Bring in Heyward Bey and see what he will sign for.

    If the Steelers don't have enough money to resign and #3 receiver than the FO needs to do a much better job of handling the salary cap.

    I just think if Sanders leaves it will be a non issue...
