No, we should not even consider picking him up. But I could see either the Patriots or a fringe playoff team with lots of extra cash picking him up.
It's the same thing every year with players like this.. same with Steven Jackson. Once-Big-Name, opinionated, me first guys that command a lot of cash and are on the down side of their career that everyone goes crazy over in free agency because of name recognition. Not worth it.
Since when is Steven Jackson an "opinionated, me first guy"?
