    Ireland probably won't even give Francis a second thought. He'd probably rather re-sign someone like Ryan Baker for the 500th time.
    Please God, let me see 1 Dolphins Superbowl victory before I die.

    No one ever said Francis was a future pro bowler. The hoopla surrounding his release was more about the Starks and Soliai situation at the end of the season, where both are F/A. With AJ showing promise in camp, he was some sort of insurance against losing either one or both of them. With the antic's of Soliai's agent David Cantor today, you now would think those fans up in arms over the release of Francis had some good reasoning behind the anguish, considering the teams cut down moves. Whatever the reasoning behind his release by the Patriot's, at least it may give Miami another chance to get him on the PS to continue his development and possibly help add depth for 2014 and some protection against F/A.

    Do these players actually cooperate with this? Especially if you're someone that would be lucky to make a roster, wouldn't the years of this kind of stuff be evidence to them that they're just being used? Dan Carpenter in the span of a month has played for 3/4th of the AFC East, don't these guys get they're being played?
    Good question. I always wondered the same. I wonder if the new iPad playbooks have some sort of anti-sharing encryption?
    In Philbin I trust!

    I wouldn't ps him.

    "oh hey UDFA guy, thx for handing our playbook to NE, want your spot back?"

    You gotta draw a line somewhere. And that's it IMO. And just to remind everyone how much we overrate him, we cut him, and did NE, and NE is desperate for depth at DT.

    You realize he turned down an offer for their PS to go to ours and then they claimed him, right? He had no choice but to go, and you are just guessing that he divulged anything. Maybe they cut him because he refused.

    Download complete. Bring him back to Miami and download his knowledge on the Patriots play book.
