    Well, the question really is how much value added is he? He is a good player but it could be $2 mil for 5 games if he gets a couple more sacks, and that $2 mil is money that could be pushed forward for signing the Patriots players entering FA next year.

    The Patriots always surprise me, but I doubt the Patriots put a claim on him or attempt to sign him if he clears waives and become a FA.

    That is not worth 4-6 million per a season when we have players capable of averaging 3.8 sacks a season, 3 of which I outlined above, at a much cheaper cost than Babin who is nothing more than a situational pass rusher. He is very weak against the run. Yes is a know name, but that doesnt mean we should be in on him. We already have we he can give us on this team.
    If he clears waivers than we don't have to pay him more than minimum.

    If they don't even put a claim in after he clears waivers, Bill has some arrogance going forward with what he has now.

    Hunh? Jones forgotten so soon?


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Jones is still in the mix (and has played very well), but we could still have used a situational pass-rusher. Ninko and Cunningham (out for 4 weeks now) have not been very effective pass-rushers, and it wouldn't have been a terrible idea to look into a situational pass-rusher. My hope is that Trevor Scott will get some snaps now that Cunningham is out.
