Default Too good to be true [From Boston Herald]

http://patriots.bostonherald.com/pat...ticleid=130754

The Pats can go one of two directions. They can keep Mike Vrabel inside and go after an edge player. San Francisco’s Julian Peterson is one of the few marquee names left on the market and could even represent an upgrade over Willie McGinest. Normally, the Pats would have little to do with him because he’s represented by notorious agent Carl Poston, but Poston has reportedly been suspended by the NFLPA, so maybe there’s a crack in the door. Then again, maybe not, because Peterson is going to command big dollars no matter who his agent is. LaVar Arrington is another big name, but the way he plays (soft, undisciplined) screams out the word: anti-Patriot. Other possibilities include Tommy Polley, who has 3-4 experience, and Houston restricted free agent Antwan Peek, a Pats target in the past.

Sounds to me like this guy either hasn't done his homework, or just really really likes Peek. Antwaan would cost the Pats their first round pick.

Lets see Peek for # 21 ... hmmm... let me think....

Accept what offer? Peek was given the mid-level tender garnering a first round pick from whoever offers him a contract he accepts. The Texans would then have a week to decide whether or not they want to match the contract or take the first round pick.

My god no.

I don't think I could bear to see Antwan go. Plus, I spent some good $$ on a custom jersey as well.

I think we would take the 1st round pick. We could move Babin to DE and fill another hole with that pick. Maybe a MLB or RT

Steele Blue explained it above. He was given a mid level tender. Other teams are free to negotiate with him, but if he signs and offer sheet the Texans have 7 days to either match the offer sheet and Peek remains a Texan or decline in which case they get the other team's 1st round draft pick.

From nfl.com

In order to submit an offer sheet, a new club must have available the required choice or choices, defined as its own or better choices in the applicable rounds, in the 2006 NFL Draft. Offer sheets may be submitted to players in this category no later than 11:59 p.m., New York time, on April 21.

I think that means a team can make an offer until April 21 but we have the right to match it before anything happens. If we don't the team that signs him has to offer us compensation. I don't think we have actually signed Peek, just made the tender on him.

No, but I'm sure he changed pants.

I've been thinking and....I don't know what I would do. A first or a young up-and-comer? A first round pick can be valuable, especially when it can be used on Mangold, but they can be a big bust as well. Or maybe we owe New England for the Jeff Bagwell trade.

That is about the sorriest excuse for refusing a first round pick I have ever heard. I feel your pain though... I had a similar experience with a Will Clark jersey once (it was a long time ago).

So we're looking at having 4 first round picks now? Ours, Denvers two, and now NE's?? What kind of cap hell are we running into?

Hey, It's obvious that he's my favorite player. There's no denying that. I just truly feel that he's something special that wasn't utilized properly by the previous coaching staff.

If you go back and watch game tape of the Titans/Texans home game in 04', you'll see that both of his blitzes/sacks where he just burst off the side (and eventually had to put two blockers on him) was when he was crouched down in a DE stance. So I'm excited to see him in his natural position...one where his main and only priority is to get to the quarterback.

So yeah, I don't want to lose him. And it doesn't stem from my jersey on him, it was used and said as sarcasm.

I agree, but I just don't see it happening. At #17 in 2003, the Broncos managed to land DJ Williams, an immediate starter.

But do you trust Casserly to draft a quality player that late in the 1st round?

he has yet to fail to draft a quality player in the first. All of his first picks are good. Before you say Babin, remember, it takes at least 3 years for a DE to go to OLB. Travis Johnson was not great, but being a 3-4 DL is tough for a rookie.

I would not do it. TEXANS84: When did you change your sig back to Peek?

This would be very interesting. I think at 21, it would be very hard to refuse, but it all depends on how much faith we have in Babin. Also, we dont really have another DE should someone get hurt. Both options have positives and negatives, but if Kubes and Smith beleive Peek has what it takes to be a good NFL DE, I would stick with him.

PS- IF he has a break out year we are going to have to pay out the *** for him because he will be an UFA at Defensive End, one of the highest paid positions...ouch

Default Patriots interested in Peek???

http://www.houstonprofootball.com/

Also, the Boston Herald speculated on Thursday that the Patriots could rekindle interest in pursuing Texans restricted free agent Antwan Peek. Upon follow-up questioning of the paper by HoustonProFootball.com, however, the Patriots are not likely to give up the first round pick required to sign Peek to an offer sheet.

Hum..... I dont think the Patriots would really give us their first round pick for Peek. Would be nice though. Could use it on a Tight end or a Wr. Or better yet .. what could they trade us for Peek?
