Re: Bethel Johnson traded to the Saints
- I think this is an excellent trade. Sullivan should develop into a
solid backup for Wilfork, and another big body for those 4-3
situations, under BB and Pees guidance. You're right, if anyone can
get something out of this guy, it's BB. Reuniting him with Seymour
may be helpful as well. He's making just over vet minimum for his
time in the league, so the financial risk is low. Bethel was a real
disappointment. Great speed, but apparently nothing else. Sort of
like Tony Simmons. I think we'll be fine at WR. Having guys like
Watson, Graham, and Thomas is almost like having a couple extra WRs
to begin with.

receiving corps still and will be interested to observe how it
unfolds over the training camp. There will be a surprise receiver or
two having a shot at this team and Bam may be the benefactor but one
thing I expect is less 3 WR sets than previously used by this team -
especially with the receiving talents at our TE position.

but Belichick has a way of turning trouble around so we shall see.
