    The only way this is a good move if they WIN the Superbowl this year OR they sign him to a long term deal.

    With those two additions Ben wouldn't be the only happy camper.

It will trend toward a Lose if he gets hurt and misses alot of time, and it will be a LOSE and/or will not sign a reasonable longer term contract and leaves after one year.
    I would have chosen to let him go, and take the 3rd round pick by a modest preponderance of the facts as I saw them.

    Time now for Sanders and Ben to produce favorable results. I think Brady and Belichick could have put him in position to earn alot of money, had he been allowed to go. Not as confident that will happen for him in Pittsburgh.

    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    Lets all raise our glasses in hopes we sign him to a long term deal so we have yet another part time, injury prone player eating up money.

    I like that they kept him. It shows that they believe in Ben's opinion.
    I also like it because Ben put his name on Sanders (again). It forces Ben to keep his "end of the bargain" by continuing to work with Sanders and help him become that #1 WR that Ben claimed he was. Not to mention the lobbying he did for Sanders. It's kind of an iron sharpens iron scenario that should only help the team.

    I just want this young man to stay healthy and build off of last years production. Cause there is a bit of production that needs to be replaced this upcoming season.

    Of course, I will be paying close attention to that NE pick late in the 3rd.

    Now we wait and see.

    Well, it does take away a 'need' that would have occured had he left.

    Personally, Chadman actually likes Sanders more than Brown as a WR. Hopefully he can avoid the injury bug, and fumble bug.

    I would rather raise my glass to a player we developed, and invested in than to depend on a third round pick who has zero experience and might not even make the team.

    Not an analyst for them, but this witless protection program they put me in is working pretty well. I did notice I needed to edit the original post a bit. I should proofread better.

    Thanks SAS.
    Keep playing the good music, Bud !!!
