Scott Pioli not going anywhere

I have excerpted a portion of this article for those of you that were confused about Scott Pioli's availability after the end of the season.

This means that those people thinking that Pioli 'could get out of his contract if he wanted to because of all the lawyers in the U.S.' can rest easily.

At least we Pats fans can

FOXBORO -- Scott Pioli said yesterday he intends to stay with the Patriots at least through the 2006 NFL Draft, which is when his current contract expires.

"Out of respect to everyone directly or indirectly involved I want to make it abundantly clear that -- if it's up to me -- I will be staying with the New England Patriots through the duration of my agreement," said the team's vice president of player personnel.

Pioli, 39, has been responsible for the lion's share of the trades, draft picks and signings that have helped the Patriots go 49-15 since the start of 2001.

...

"The Kraft family has always treated me well and they made it clear to me that they would not hold me back from professional growth or opportunity," Pioli explained. "Two years ago, we entered into an agreement and I plan to fulfill it."


But in recent weeks, speculation has punched Pioli's ticket to outposts like Cleveland and Miami. It was theorized that he would want to become the "decision maker" for a franchise in need of renovation. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick still has veto power in New England.

Technically, that's true, but Belichick and Pioli have a cooperative relationship. Belichick may be contractually allowed to have final say for the Patriots, but he doesn't lord that over employees like they're underlings.

Asked if he covets the chance to run his own program, Pioli said, "It's not something I think about every day. I think about how to try and make the team better. We all have personal and professional aspirations. For me, it's been to work with people I respect and care about and win championships with them. As life goes on, goals, circumstances and aspirations evolve. That being said, I also have to take into consideration some of my values and beliefs when I make that decision. I know what my role is here. And I'm comfortable with it right now."

It does elsewhere, but several key members of the Pats organization have taken less money to stay right where they're at - including Pioli, Troy Brown, Tedy Bruschi, Ted Johnson, etc., etc.
