I wouldn't count on him leaving. He's one of Belichick's favorites and the glue that holds the secondary together.

Yeah him & Revis will be top priorities this off season. Next off season or during season I would think it'd be Chandler and Don'ta. The next Jamie Collins.

Patriots will have basically $20m in space to play with needing to re-sign Revis, McCourty, Ghost and Connolly as the major FA pieces to worry about. (toss a mid-round tender on the running backs if you care). (Note, also need ~$6m in space to sign rookies).

McCourty is the #1 priority and is probably gonna be around what Byrd cost the Saints, Revis just have to massage a deal that doesn't screw the cap over too badly and /or lets the Pats escape when they think Brady will retire / be done, and Ghost probably eats the franchise tag unless he takes a longer term cheaper deal he doesn't have to.

You can also restructure Mayo, extend Solder to significantly reduce cap hits. We shouldn't have a problem getting our guys back. I just wouldn't expect any outside signings outside of a couple 2 mil deals

Connolly isn't a major piece. He's a guy to bring back cheap if possible, otherwise it should be easy to upgrade.

Also, Ridley and Vereen aren't guys they can "toss a mid round tender on" as they're UFA not RFA

There's no chance he ends up on the Redskins, if that's what you're asking.

McCourty, and Revis are the two biggest off-season priorities for New England. Can't let either go, IMO. They're a huge part of the reason why our defense has been so successful this season. McCourty isn't going anywhere, I'm confident that if they can't get a deal done, they'll slap the tag on him.

The Revis situation will be an interesting one. Everyone knows Revis is about the dough...he deserves it. Gotta pay the man. I've said it in other threads, but my ideal off-season would be bringing back McCourty, Revis, and then Ayers. I'm not too worried about letting Vereen walk if he wants a big pay day. Add pieces to the line through the draft.

You have to tag Revis (at least if that is a possibility, not sure what his contract stipulates). That isn't even a discussion if we can.

McCourty will have far more loyalty to the Patriots organization and will likely come cheaper because he isn't a flashy player. But then again, I thought I could have said that about guys like Welker or Vinatieri too probably...

They can't tag Revis, he still has another year on his contract. He signed a two year contract in the summer, but they're going to have to deal with that $16-20 million hit next year, either release or restructure (hopefully restructure).

I would not be upset at a deal like that. Afraid Revis is going to be asking for more tho.

If a team pays him more then 15 for it would have to be for 2 seasons which may be what he wants.

I would hope 13 a year for 5-6 years would do it.

Put in some incentives and make it worth his while.
