Sorry meant Chad Johnson and everything else was fact. On July 28, 2011, the New England Patriots acquired Ochocinco in a trade with Cincinnati after he restructured a three-year contract for $6.35 million. The Patriots traded two draft picks, a 5th round pick in 2012 and a 6th round pick in 2013. Not a free agent pick up. Albert Haynesworth again traded for for a 5th round pick after restructuring his deal, not a free agent pick

Ralph Albert Haynesworth was picked up for a 5th round pick after he restructured his contract and Calvin Johnson was picked up for a 5th & 6th round picks after he restructured his deal for them. SOOOOOOOOOOO, they did not sign them to big FREE AGENT CONTRACTS.

First of all, when you look a New England's past, they don't pay top dollar for other team's free agents. They do a better job of taking other teams castoffs and getting better production out of them then their old team. They won't don't overpay for free agents, that's why they are always getting a crap load of comp picks every year as they sign low level free agents and let their own big time free agents leave. Their history shows that they will trade away mid to late round picks for guys they think they want. They won't sign Starks or Hartline to big contracts, if they can get them cheap, then yes. New England does a better job of acorn hunting than Ireland ever could.

Cannot imagine giving Smith top corner money to a guy with a grand total of 5 picks and 40 pass defended in his career. He plays a good man coverage, but sucks in zone, can't tackle and doesn't play the run particularly well. There's a fair amount of good corner prospects coming out this year and i probably would rather take my chance on them, especially the SEC ones than on Smith who has given me very little in his 4 years here. Let him walk sign a big contract and get a descent comp pick next year. Same deal with Long and any other of our pending free agents who might e pricing theirselfs out of Miami.
