I fucking hope not and I hope everyone is with me on this one. I know we were all broken up after the Super Bowl loss but let’s not forget about the incredible regular season Moss and Brady had together.
People have it in their minds that the Pats are going to release Stallworth because of his big cap number and that makes sense. You didn’t pick up Washington’s $4 Million option for the same cap reason. So that leaves Gaffney, Moss and Welker. Whoops, no it doesn’t. Moss and Gaffney are both free agents as is old reliable Troy Brown.
So this leaves Brady with Wes Welker, Chad Jackson who’s made of a more fragile glass than Maroney or is dumber than Bethel Johnson and whatever scrubs are on the practice team.
Good news though the team had Marty Booker in for a visit. Yeah, that’s what we need Marty Booker, that’ll solve our problems. My “friends” in Miami say that every time Booker catches the ball he immediately and without hesitation falls to the ground. I’m sure that’s great for that yards after catch stat. I’m sure Brady’s licking his chops at having a bum like that on the team.
Bottom line is, I’m painting a much grimmer picture that it really is. It’s quite conceivable that the Pats bring back Moss, Stallworth, Gaffney, the ageless Troy Brown and maybe even special teams stand out Kelley Washington (not anywhere near $4 Million). This is one of those times that as a Pats fan you wish you could get an answer from the front office just to have some sort of clue.
Let Tom keep his “toys”. Make it happen.
