***** I hate to see Evans go; but it's not a "team breaker". He takes nothing but my good wishes with him. He was a solid, dependable, hard-working player for us. My thought is that we won't really miss him much on the field.
***** I like the Greg Lewis deal. We practically got him for nothing. We gave up a R5 pick we don't really need this year, since we have 7 picks before R5 right now (R1, 3-R2's, 2-R3's, R4). We can certainly still use one of those to try to land a more talented #3 WR, if Lewis can't win that job. AND we got a R7 next year. Now add the really cheap, 3-year contract that came with him; and his STs abilities. Nothing to lose here, IMO. Even if he ends up as just our #4 WR. He'd be essentially taking the place of Washington. Good signing. Even better if he does turn out to be good enough for the #3 WR spot.
I realize this isn't going to last forever. I won't be playing football forever. But I think I've tried to ensure that when I stop playing football, the last helmet I'll be wearing is a Patriot helmet." - Tedy Bruschi
