He hasn't impressed in preseason in 3 years and in regular season is 1/4 with 17 passing yards and an INT with -9 rushing yards in 3 years and was 'just OK' at his Pro Day THIS year. 4th rounders though? I can get down to this dance, we blow those all the time anyways.
As you said yourself, he hasn't done anything in three seasons. He's seen the field in four games, thrown four passes, completed one and thrown one pick. I don't see how he can "demand" anything. According to SpotRac
he's not even making a million if he stays with the Pats this year. I don't see him getting any kind of big contract.
I'm totally with you on not giving up a 2nd for this guy. ...maybe not even a 3rd.
He just reminds me too much of Dan Orlovsky. Don't ask me why. He just does.
