      I understand this is true. The Pats would like to re-sign him to a more
      cap friendly contract, but he will have interest from others; Cleveland
      (Crennel, and lots of money to spend), Dallas (Parcells loves to raid
      the Pats, and knows Willie's ability), San Diego (he's a SoCal guy,
      might like to go home). If he's not blown out of the water, I think
      he'll follow Troy's lead, and finish his career here. But he could get
      an offer that's hard to turn down from someone like the Browns.
      We shall see...

                The only thing definite with Willie McGinest at this point is that he was cut from the Patriots.  It is not unreasonable to observe tht he was due a 3.5 Million Dollar Roster bonus if not cut or restructured within the first week of the Free Agency year which begins very soon (Friday-Monday at some point to be defined by the League).  According to Migel and many other sources, Willie was a Salary Cap figure of 8.3 Million or so this year and at that price the Patriots are likely to seek means of reducing.  I personally heard comments alleged from Willie to say he understood the roster bonus was unlikely to be paid.  Without the full freedom of a known Salary Cap high end during the Collective Bargaining work which was just completed, it was harder for the Patriots to plan and negotiate with him.
                 
                It would not be unreasonable for Willie to return with a new contract in the not too distant future.  This is not a guarantee by any means and he will likely command more than the Veteran minimum with potential offers from several interested places.  Still, the Patriots likely wish him here and all reports indicate both sides in fact wish to have him here.
                 
                I have a special place in My Pats heart for Willie McGinest not only from our interactions and his performances but because I attended one and only one draft in New York and that was the draft in which we took him. 
                 
                I expect him back until I hear he has signed elsewhere.
