says to me that NE is hesitant to pay these guys the money they are looking for, given that NE doesn't want them to be every-down starters. They probably started talking numbers and quickly found out they weren't in the same ball-park.
We apparently are willing to pay for pass-rush - Doom isn't more than an every-down pass-rusher anyways and we were set to fork over $30m over the next 3 years.
I guess I don't understand NE's hesitation. They have got to want to compliment Jones and Seymour, right?
