A reader has shared with us this nugget from Michael Felger of WEEI. Put simply, the Bucs arrived at the party too late (and possibly with a cinnamon bobka).

If thatís the case, then it all makes sense.

But Mort says (via Graham) that the Broncos were willing to give up their own first-round pick ó No. 12 overall in the draft ó for Cassel. Under those circumstances, why didnít Belichick bite?

We agree with Mortensenís suggestion that Belichick would be less willing to help a former assistant coach than to help the front-office guy who helped set the table for those three Super Bowl victories in four year.

Curran fleshes it out:

Interesting ...the PFT says that the deal was signed with the Chiefs when the Bucs came with their offer. Says kudos to Pioli for being smart enough to pull the trigger while others were thinking about it, knowing how desperately the Pats needed to get the deal done.
