Found February 25, 2013 on Patriots Life:
With Tom Brady signing his deal, virtually making him a Patriot for life, it looks like Mallett could be out of New England soon, maybe before the draft in April. Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe has said the Patriots won't take anything less than a 2nd round pick for him, which makes it seem likely he could actually stay a Patriot. Heres why: When Tom Brady went down Matt Cassell led the Patriots to an 11-5 record and what did they get for him? A 3rd round pick. Not to mention that Mike Vrabel was also involved in that deal. So you get a 3rd round pick for a "proven" quarterback and a veteran linebacker that won 3 super bowls with the Patriots, but now the Patriots want nothing less than a second round pick for a guy who hasn't taken any snaps apart from taking a knee(well actually he's 1 for 4 for 17 yards and a pick). Hmmmmm. They are obviously asking too much for a guy who hasn't proven ****, so I think he'll be here next year unless they lower their...

Lloyd's 'erratic behavior' reason Patroits won't retain?

Report: Patriots, Welker talking contract

According to the Boston Herald, the New England Patriots and wide receiver Wes Welker are discussing a possible contract extension. These discussions were held independent of Tom Brady‘s contract extension. However, Brady’s new deal has freed up $15 million in cap room over the next two seasons, which gives Welker and the Pats a little more room to work with. It’s still unclear...

Patriots could reportedly still sign Wes Welker to an extension

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, there’s still a chance teh New England Patriots could sign wide receiver Wes Welker to a contract extension and keep him from hitting the free agent market. Easily the most productive NFL receiver over the past several years, he’s a first-down machine. He’s also, however, a slot receiver, and he’s a little older, making it tougher...

Tom Brady, Patriots agree to an extension through 2017

With trade rumors and the NFL Combine in full swing, it would be easy to overlook Tom Brady's contract extension with the Patriots that will keep him in New England through the 2017 season. Peter King of SI.com reports that the extension, which will go a long way towards making sure Brady retires with the Patriots, is below the fair market value for one of the league'...

Tom Brady took less money, got a ton of guaranteed money, and may have made it harder for other quarterbacks to cash in

Peter King reported on Monday that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Patriots for “an eye-poppingly conservative $27 million, which is less than half his worth by any measure.” So from there, the masses began to praise Brady for taking less money than he could’ve made so that the Patriots could enjoy some much needed cap relief...

Biggest trakeway from the combine so far -- there are so many receivers to like for the Patriots in this draft. Based on speed and quickness, the Patriots could pick up one anywhere from late 1 to the 4th and get what they look for as far as measurables g

Yeah I definitely agree with this. Justin Hunter is one of the guys that has pinged my radar for...

Tom Brady Hitting Parties

Gotcha Juan! Tom Brady is the man.  HOF QB.  Dates Super Model.  Is a model for Uggs…oh wait.  The real reason he is the man is the contract extension he signed today.  He took about half of what the market demands just to free up cap space and give his team a better shot at free agents.  You might not like him or the Patriots, but you have to respect the move. Danny Amendola...

Should the Patriots go after DT Cullen Jenkins?

With Tom Brady's new deal meaning the New England Patriots have a bit more cap space to work with, we can look at filling more holes in the team through Free Agency. And one of those holes is Defensive Tackle. Sure, I like Kyle Love and Brandon Deaderick, but not as starters. They are nice backups to fill in for Vince Wilfork, but one of the things the Patriots were missing...
