    Visiting the Pats today....The (now expected) loss of Blount opens a spot in the backfield for a power back, but I'm really hopeful they don't go the AP route.

    They could get a bruiser in the draft if they need one.

    Or they could sign him on a reasonable contract. It's not like he has people knocking down the door the sign him.

    It should embarrass the people working for the city; I suppose it doesn't.
    Isn't team paying for half, with the state ($400M) and a hospitality tax ($150M) paying the rest.

    Has the price inflated that much?

    No, I think that was a bad source I'd been reading. The $500 million number is closer
    to accurate.

    I can't think of many RBs he's trusted that haven't had some years of service. Id love to see if he could coexist in a system not geared totally towards him.

    AD is done. Damaged goods with way too much mileage. I'd love to know what kind of contract he thinks he deserves. So far Tampa Bay, Green Bay and New England have all said no thanks. Tampa and Green Bay both could use a RB. Those two teams passing on him tells me a lot. New England needed a replacement for Blount and after visiting with Peterson it looks like Blount may re-sign with the Pats.

    He's done.

    Wouldn't you just love to see a post game press conference with just him and Belichick.
