Givens was....good, but he wasnt the best, Troy Brown and Deion Branch were better, and there are many WO with Givens talents, its sad to see him go, but it wont affect the Patriots offense

No Givens, no double threat at wide reciever, Ben Watson becomes a blocker, and the passing game struggles. Patriots go 12 and 4 with an easy schedule then lose to the Broncos in the playoffs.

I agree deion is better but troy brown is not an every down receiver at his age.

Billy Volek has waited his time.The Titans want to and need to win and they feel like Kerry Collins is the person they can do that with,it can't be that bad being the back up to K.C.the way i understand it,is that back up QB's still get paid big bucks,so stop crying Billy and just play ball!!!!

The Patroits are going to play a two tightend scheme this year,which would have taken away from givens,so letting him go was the best thing for him and the team.Cheers to the Patriots for letting Givens shine elsewhere!!!!!!!
