    There are a couple of people visiting this weekend..some visits we know about (adam,pickett,rumored to be ty law,etc).

    there might be some we DONT know about...

    I have a feeling Ted is gonna be on some crazy **** this weekend, and by Monday our heads will be spinning.

    I mean...the visits\interview are giving me a itchy feeling..

    Lets hope, right? that 'tightwad' ted makes a move?

    go pack!

    Yes, let's hope Teddy boy can grab us some of those gus. God knows they would be very helpful. Hopefully him being a tightwad will pay off in the future.

    I heard Pickett was making his decision, didn't hear he was visiting again....Ty Law seems to be a fake by a Lions fan...granted AV is suppose to be here, but unless we offer $3million/year I suspect NE will match, since they freed up money releasing McGinest...

    Agreed and this guy makes Longwell look like a college boy....

    Notes: Kicker Vinatieri includes Green Bay in travel plans
    I haven't seen him choke in clutch situations, either, like a couple others we all know....

    No slam against Vinatieri (I really like him), but I think it is worthy of noting that Longwell's career average is 81.6% kicking in worse conditions (GB Vs NE) and that is factoring in last year's problems with holding (despite my not liking Ryan's public whining no one can dispute it was a problem) (aside from problems while injured in 2001) was far below Longwell's normal outstanding standards.

    Both are great clutch kickers and have won many games for their teams.

    I think Longwell has lost his clutch, while Vinatieri still can do it! Let's hope the Vikings paid 10 millions for a poor kicker :p

    Vinatieri puts foot in the door with Packers
    By John Tomase/ Patriots Notebook
    Wednesday, March 15, 2006 - Updated: 06:44 AM EST

    Kicker Adam Vinatieri will make his first official visit of free agency Friday when he travels to Green Bay to meet the Packers.

    Green Bay recently lost kicker Ryan Longwell to the Minnesota Vikings and began free agency with more than $30 million in salary cap space. Vinatieri’s standing as the best bad-weather kicker in history makes him an obvious target for the Pack, although a source close to Vinatieri said he’d prefer a warmer climate if he decides to leave New England.

    Townsend in town?
    A source in Pittsburgh said free agent cornerback Deshea Townsend will visit Foxboro this week, but agent Peter Shaffer denied it.
    “He’s not coming to Boston,â€

    There is no reason we should lose out on Pickett. Pickett is a tackling machine(lead all defensive linemen in tackles). Kampman is a tackling machine(I believe he was in the top 5 of all defensive linemen in tackle). Barnett is a tackling machine(ledd all NFC players in tackles). Hell if we get Pickett nobody else will have to make a tckle all year.

    I don't want to spend 15 million on a kicker. Save it for a football player.

    Is it true that TT and other personnel have been unavailable this week to free agents? or is this just some rumor started by the anti-TT faction?
