Samuel tagged

The Patriots informed cornerback Asante Samuel today that they are placing the franchise tag on him. Adam Schefter first reported the news on the NFL Network.

The news was confirmed tonight by Samuel's agent, Alonzo Shavers.

We'll have more later tonight.

not shocking. The teams around the NFL have ALOT more $$ to spend due to the new CBA, and the salary numbers for franchise tags haven't caught up to what the new market will bear.

I'd expect to see alot more franchise tags this year than we have in the last few years.

Personally, I was hoping to franchise/sign Samuel and get Briggs in FA to rejuvenate our LB corp. He said he didn't want to play in a 3-4, so probably it was never going to happen anyway.

The Bears franching Briggs just drove up Adaleus Thomas' price.

Yeah, but the way things are going we are going to hear about him getting franchised too. I didn't know the Chiefs ran a 3-4...

I just hope this doesn't come back to haunt the Pats like it did AV.
Since Samuel already starting whining during the po's.

I would like to see Daniel Graham in green..franchising Samuel helps.

Poor mumbles..he also lost his receivers coach to the Jets. :D

Funny..mumbles raided the Jets coaching staff and player personnel people (Pioli) in the spring of 2000...so what's good for the goose(mumbles) is good for the gander(Mangini).

:shrug: Compared to past years, losing one non-coordinator coach is no big deal. And Mangina lost his DBs coach to ND, so I'm not too worked up about it. Movement of coaches is part of the deal.

We'll see how the Jests do with a real schedule and not being able to surprise anyone this year. We'll also see if Penny can stay healthy for an unprecedented second year in a row.

errr...Belichick "found" Pioli and brought him with him nearly everyplace he went. To say that Belichick stole Pioli is pretty silly.

Well..supposedly the ''non-coordinator'' in question was getting a lot of praise for the Patriots passing game..considering they have no good receivers(you do say that all the time ;) )

The Jets were supposed to be horrible last year in 2006..another good draft along with some added free agents should make them better..and I think Clemens will beat out Noodle arm in training camp..

Now Now..lets not get defensive about what mumbles history is..Mangini is doing nothing different than mumbles when he takes an assistant or two..or maybe 3..who knows.

Smart move by New England.

Next to Bailey, I think Samuel is one of the best CB's in the game. jmo
