Yuck. Hopefully, like the other guys who visited, he leaves without a contract

He's a schmuck, but I don't see the risk. It's not like there's gonna be a bidding war for him, so he's almost certainly gonna be a vet minimum guy. I'd be fine with that.

He better be coming in at the vet minimum... either way he probably gets cut by training camp

He's a crazy person... Laughing Maybe not Devone bess crazy but still.

Rather take a risk on Rice.

I'd definitely take him at the vet minimum. He is capable of being a legit #1 when he's not being insane

There's always a risk to carrying turds like Britt on your roster (and presumably they'd pick him up with the idea that maybe he makes the final roster). If you cut a guy like Thompkins because Britt has a great camp and then Britt reverts back to his immature turd self, you're now scrambling for a WR.

With premium talent (Moss), it makes sense to take that risk. But I'm not a fan of it with guys like this, especially at positions crowded with youth. I'd hate to lose Boyce or Thompkins in favor of a ticking time bomb like Britt. And frankly, I don't think Britt's upside as a receiver is particularly high at this point in his career.

@jerrythornton1: The Pats are very close to signing WR Brandon LaFell. Let's just say I know a guy who knows a guy. But book it #PatriotsTalk

Lafell and/or Britt are probably just camp competition for Boyce and Thompkins. Britt is a head case, but he's still only 25 and does have potential. I'm ok with signing him if its a 1-year cheap deal.

LaFell's hands are inconsistent, but I'd take him in a heartbeat over Thompkins.

Britts skills deteriorated at an astonishing rate. I would love the signing if he hadnt looked closer to 36 than 26 last season.

Thompkins hands aren't anything to write home about. It'd be an upgrade, albeit a small one.

Eh. Seems like a lot of dominoes have to fall into place for such a scenario to play out. Some pretty unlikely.
