Worst city in America

15-20 years ago maybe.  Detroit has become a destination for artisans and entrepreneurs of all stripes.  Cost of living is low and optimism is high.  Outdated stereotypes are...outdated.

I am from Detroit. I would say even 5 years ago that place was horrible, but if you go there now it is actually pretty nice. The bad areas are still really bad though.

I wonder what the Patriots were willing to pay.  Three super Bowls and two wins by the age 25 is a huge deal. But if you hang around in New England and play in a couple more Super Bowls that would put Trey in some elite company.  I know football careers are short but I would be tempted to hang around in New England for less money for a chance at sports immortality.

some players get a bad taste in their mouth from the process in New England. they feel like they are being disrespected. i can't blame them for wanting to get paid based on how short their career can be and the threat of injury.

no doubt they wanted to keep him. but they keep winning because they don't have to manage a ton of cap dead weight each year. no one player can be bigger than the team. they have a good system and coach it well. look at the O line coach. the year or two he was gone the line was really bad. look what he did for Trent Brown. got him a huge payday. let's see how he does with that fat paycheck and with the Raiders coaches.

Will also say the ONLY thing I miss about Bret being coach at Arkansas was that Belichick trusted him and drafted several of his players( like he did with schiano at rutgers).

best wishes to Trey and congrats.

Probably didn't offer much of anything. BB knew he would get a 3rd round pick as compensation. Probably valued that more than the player. He drafted him in the 4th, gets several years of cheap production, turns him into a compensatory 3rd. The Patriot way.
