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?
You also have to consider that Belicheat coached against Freeney a good amount of times. To me they are has beens. If I had to chose one of them I would go with Freeney because he is younger and can still rush in rush downs. I have read Abraham was protected by the scheme, plus he also got his sack in short amounts of games and against the crappiest of OL's.

I would avoid them altogether and just invest our first on a DE. But after getting rid of Hunter we have to find a DE vet. So it they are on they cheap, signing either won't hurt really.

It just sucks that all of this had to come down to this because of the incompetence of his agent.
