    One thing you cannot deny about the New England Patriots is they are normally prepared, well coached, and understand and execute fundamentals very very well.
    That's about consisted and reliable coaching, being prepared for each individual team, and addressing those teams strengths and weaknesses.
    That above anything else is what dolphin organization ought to be centering around.
    With that mastered you will find players consistently operating above their perceived levels of skill. That's the secret in my opinion.

    I think that's a good evaluation, especially the preparation.
    Belichick learned that from his dad, who wrote books on the subject.

    He is still under contract with the Saints. He won't be a free agent until next year.

    Not if they don't pick up the option. That's the whole point of this thread.

    Screenshot_20190501-130808_Samsung Internet.jpg LOL I feel like I'm the only one that read the article. His 5th year option is for 2020. He isn't a free agent until next year.

    Kid can't even cook his own meals. Also, still a Saint for another year. The option refers to 2020.

    The fifth year option decision is made at the end of year three, so he's still under contract for year four (this year). Unless they cut him this Summer he'll be a free agent next March. I'm not entirely sure whether the suggestion by the OP is that we make a move on him next year (which seems a bit premature) or whether we take this as a sign that they don't want him and try and offer a trade for peanuts.

    We're not getting him this year unless we trade for him. So nope.

    Two teams are fed up with him. Why should we make it three?
