With spring training fully underway, I'm thinking football. The Associated Press asks:
How could the Patriots obtain only a second-round draft choice for a solid, young quarterback and a 12-year veteran leader, linebacker Mike Vrabel?
I'm more than a little curious about that, myself. It was generally thought that Cassel, alone, would bring multiple higher picks and there was supposedly a better deal for the Pats on the table involving Tampa and Denver. He has a huge contract and there was never any doubt that he was going to be traded. The Pats couldn't keep him and Tom Brady at $15 million each. That probably affected his value somewhat but I still think he was worth more than that. There's more here than meets the eye. On the surface, it appears KC got a steal. If I was a Patriot fan, I'd be plenty upset by this. Yeah, they cleared some cap space but a little too late if you ask me. Most of the big money free agents have already signed.
