A Brewer and a Patriot"
Clearly printed on most labels but alas despite the pedigree, Sam didn't
come to the Pats early in his career. Now I agree he'd be a better back-up
for Wilfork and a solid addition on Goal Line, I'm not sure he's healthy
enough to manage joining our team.
He had a few opportunities in the past but it didn't work out in large part
because we weren't offering enough money. If his financial desires put him
into range to be one of our backups then I'd be in favor.
One thing about old vets with enough talent to be great support but not
enough in the tank to be mainstays, they can come in at Vet minimums and
contend. The challenge is the discerning eyes of Bellichick and Pioli to
determine whether they do in fact have enough to be a worthy addition in
