IMO Donnie Jones should have a higher tender.I dont feel 850,000 is much for a young quality punter. Ithink we might have added a 7th to the deal if im not mistaken,but it still isnt enough. I feel Bellicheck lurking in the shadows :
Broncos | Team, Sauerbrun reach agreement
Tue, 3 Apr 2007 15:25:25 -0700

Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports the Denver Broncos have reached agreement with unrestricted free-agent P Todd Sauerbrun (Patriots) on a one-year deal, according to the Boston Globe. Since Sauerbrun gave the New England Patriots the first right of refusal, the Patriots can match the offer within a week after it is filed with the NFL offices.

Let's release Donnie and then we can wager our first round and two second round picks to the team that picks him up.

Yea, when you only come out once to punt then you deserve not to get paid over a million dollars. Hell anything over 200,000 is too much.

Is it even possible to raise a players tender offer?

But yeah, the Pats would have no problem in losing a 7th rounder to get a very good and young punter and at the same time screw us a bit more.

Donnie Jones is a good punter but I don't think teams will fork over draft picks for one. I want Donnie Jones to stay.

They don't have a seventh of their own to trade and you can't trade comp picks. They already gave us their seventh so if they wanted Jones they would have to give us a sixth.

Donnie is a good asset to this team, I think we should have put more effort into locking him up

If I am not mistaken, the Pats gave us their 7th rounder in the Welker deal. You can't use compensatory picks for trading. They can't sign Jones in that case.

Do you really want to pay a punter over 1 mil? Donnie did a pretty good job last year but he has only been about average compared to punters around the league. Besides, if someone like NE signed him to an offer sheet, we could always match if we thought he was worth it.
