Perhaps he wants more money, but Howe is reporting the Pats want Waters, and All Pro OG to take a pay cut to 500K from his $1.4M contract he signed last year. That way he would only count $450K against the Salary Cap. I don't know about you, but I am a little pissed off if this is true. The guy is a Pro Bowl caliber player ... pay him! They wasted $3.4M on Fannene, could pay Chad Johnson $6M. We have the highest ticket prices and the value of the franchise is second highest only behind Jerry Jones and his 8th wonder of the world stadium. Pay the man!
