ESPN.com wrote:Dillon, who rushed for 1,635 yards in his first season with the Super Bowl champion Patriots, agreed to a contract extension that could keep him a Patriot for the remainder of his career. The restructuring of the deal guarantees that he will make $10 million the next two seasons, and if the Patriots pick up the option in 2007, he might make $25 million over the next five years.

The guy is built though. And NFL contracts are never guaranteed. Like baseball and basketball.

All they need to do is release him and the contract is worth less than pennys.

I think the Patriots running offense is going to slightly weaken this year. Beacuse the defense is not going to be as strong and the Pats may need some quick scores. Reverting to their passing offense a bit more than last season.

He defientely deserves the money and I'm happy to see that his team cares about him. I, however, don;t think he;s durable enough to play for 5 more years. He's getting a bit old, and although he's durable, I don't think he'll last much longer. I'll take a guess and say he'll be out in four years.

he deserves it..but i dont think he will be able to be a full time back for another 5 years...id say he is good for about 3 more and then a RBBC situation, or a 3rd down back..simliar to faulk now.

Dillon will never be a third down back...He has as much catching abilty as a T-rex. Dillon has never been a catching rb. And never will be. He just doesn't have the hands.
