Anyone else worried about Samuel?

Postby mthomas720 » Mon Aug 06, 2007 12:58 am

I have a bad feeling about Asante holding out. I think losing Branch last year has really changed the way I look at holdouts. I mean logically, it makes the most sense for him to play the whole season, so he can make the most money and has the best opportunity to showcase himself for next year's free agent market. But what if he decides to not play until week 10? Or if he signs with another team as Branch did last year? Or if he just doesn't play at all? Financially for him, as I said, it makes the most sense to play all season, but what do you guys think?

Well, obviously Samuel is a great player, adn it would help to have him, but him holding out isn't the end of the world really. If he decides not to play until week 10, most likely we'll trade him for...another 1st rounder, meaning we'd have 3 next year. Also, although he would be an enormous help, the Patriots are still a superbowl team without him.
