I'd like to think this is the kind of thing that would cause dissent in Patsieland; cutting a guy who's been nothing but team-first. But that's probably wishful thinking.

I think he was scheduled to make over 3mm this year.... He maybe be a class act, team palyer, etc, etc... but he is not worth that... I bet he may resign with for the VET min..

Hmm Phifer released, possibly retiring. Bruschi's prolly gonna retire. Cutting Troy brown? I know Belichecks a genious but it seems like hes losing some team chemistry here.

This is a huge blow to New England....Brown was a great team player and would do anything for the team. I'd love to see him catch on with Miami but I doubt that would happen.

I don't know about the rest of you guys but methinks the Patriot Dynasty is coming apart at the seams.....they have lost most of their best coaches, and Ty Law and now Troy.....Bruschi is a question mark....I think we win the AFC EAST in 2005.

troy brown was a good story this year and is a good football player but I'm not real excited that he's available.
I'm more excited about Jennings, Thomas, or Johnson

Ok... look... Troy Brown doesn't equal Miami Dolphins. Never has. So, ask yourself... does this belong in the Miami Dolphins forum or the AFC East forum where there are three other posts about this same subject. This is being moved and merged. Thank you.

If you think about it..

The patriots releasing Troy Brown affects the phins since we play the patriots twice a year. SO technically, it does belong in a Phin Board.

I won't yell, don't worry.

I think that this was kind of expected. He has been a mediocre player for a few years now, being fully supplanted by Branch as their #1. They're a team that will replace him, although this may mean that they could be eyeing a WR in the draft.

Good player, but not worth the $5.7 million cap fiture at 32 years of age.

Wouldn't be shocked if Brown retires.

...and no, I don't think the Patriots are "coming apart at the seems".

they will just plug in another guy and it will probably work. maybe PK sam will step up. im hoping im wrong

From ESPN.com:

"New England Patriots (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=nwe) wide receiver Troy Brown (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=2415), who sacrificed incentive bonus money to help out in the injury-depleted secondary, failed to reach a new contract agreement with the team and will become a free agent after midnight on Tuesday. His contract had an option bonus of $2.5 million due Tuesday along with a $2.5 million base salary. The team wasn't going to pay him $5 million this season for cap reasons so each side was trying to work on the right number.

That didn't happen, so he is available to any other team wanting to sign him. Brown has had a remarkable 12-year career that included a Pro Bowl season in 2001 and several key seasons during the team's run to three Super Bowls in four years.

Brown symbolized the team concept because of his willingness to be good on offense, special teams and defense. He was the Patriots punt returner. The big story this year happened during training camp when he was asked to try the cornerback position.

Injuries to starting cornerbacks Tyrone Poole (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=3154) and Ty Law (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=3188) forced Brown to become the team's nickel cornerback, which he played surprisingly well."

Troy Brown is a great guy to have on a team. He did everything the coaches asked and did it well. Although he's getting up there in years, he'd still be a good #2. Would he be a good fit in Miami? Possibly. I'm still not sure whether Chris Chambers is a #1 or #2 guy, althought playing with lousy quarterbacks hasn't helped to showcase his skills.

I don't think we'll sign Brown because even though he's in his twelfth year, he'll still command more money than we'd be willing to play. That being said, I think if he goes to a team with a good QB and offense, he could catch 40 balls for 500 yards and 4 TDs.

Did you even read my post? I merely mentioned that Troy Brown wasn't resigned and I didn't think he was a great fit in Miami, both financially and in terms of starting. If that is worthy of being "blasted", then this board has become a pathetic playground for passive aggressive dorks.

This really sends a bad message to the players. I understand he was due 5 million, but the pats are the face of the league. The patriots stress team and not individual players. Then they’ll cut the ultimate team guy in a second. If I’m a player in the NFL and I see the ultimate team player cut from a team that prides itself on a team concept, I wouldn’t ever settle for less money. There’s a reason why players aren't loyal to their teams and it’s because the NFL is a business that won’t be loyal to you. Tom Brady is a fool if he doesn’t demand big bucks when his contract situation comes up.

I just don't see the big deal, here.

The guy was great three years ago, but today he's their 3rd best WR... 4th best CB... and wasnt even a full-time kick returner any more. 34 years old, scheduled to earn $5.7 million against the cap next year... why would you bring him back? Sentimentality? Who's got time for that bullsh*t?

This is just good cap management by the Patriots, who, by the way, are now more than $10 million under the cap. They could be pretty big players in free agency in the next couple of weeks.
