Please put the franchise tag on him. Between Brady and him they'd tie up 29 million and severly limit the Pat's ability to field a competitive team. I doubt any team in the NFL would be willing to take on a 14 million contract. My guess is that they'll trade him but also have to throw in 5-10 million to the new team. Either way that 14 million dollar contract counts in full versus the cap. Dunn won't accept anything less than a 5 year contract (5 x 14 =$70 million). I wonder who gets released by the Pats next. Moss, Welker, DT Abrahamson???

My my, what a spot to be in. Two QB's worth their weight in gold. A back-up QB, with back-up RB's, led them to an 11-5 season, and last years MVP. And then there's the dulfins with old noodle arm.
Which dilemma would I rather face? Geez, that's a real tough one, huh?

11-5 using bench players, compared to 11-5 using starters, is hardly a bad indicator for NE nor a good one for the dulfins.
Besides, the bilge position belongs to the one-and-done dulfins who were embarrassed by a virtual rookie, Cassel, and a true rookie in the 1st round playoff game.
Keep living in '72, that's all you'll ever have and remember, that was a 14 game schedule under more lax rules both on the field and in the salary department.

You dont say...? Knowing New England, they'll make a trade within the division again to Buffalo or NY because they know how to defend him and the rest of us dont. Did NY get a coach yet? RFLMDO...!!

Damn,Still so much hate for the Pats,guess these (Hatriots) will still be trashing my team for ever,They get 11-5,don"t make the play-offs (with a back-up who last game was in H.S.)did a awesome job condsidering who shoes he had to fill and there are teams (9-7)who made the play-offs whatta joke! Anyway,Matt Cassel,has finally made a name for himself,will be making the big bucks,and hopefully will be a starter if not in N.E. somewhere else,but hope he stays in N.E. We WILL wait until net season!

Greatest embarrassment in NFL history when years of cheating finally caught up with the bellicheat and the Pats and they choked in the SB..... Kaarma baby and it's not done yet, that is why your half baked team choked and didn't even make the play-offs. Drop dead pat fan loser! keep hoping and wishing and bashing. The Fins are back baby..... Pats cheating dynasty is dead on life support!
