    Just wanted to know what some of you think. He's set to make 5+ mil this year and next. Is cap number for both seasons is around 8 mil. That seems like a lot to carry on the books. Do you think AJ will re-work Chambers' deal?

    doh, it'll be Florence who leaves. That opens up space on the cap, right?
    Edit: And most likely MT as well

    isn't florence still playing under his rookie contract? that won't open any meaningful space.

    If Moss can restructure his contract, Chambers can as well.

    2008 5.1M
    2009 4.55M

    moss' contract was restructured because nobody wanted him and even though the pats DID actively want him, they made it seem like they were doing him a FAVOR by bringing him in and got him to agree to get paid peanuts this year, which is how they were able to sign adalius thomas and welker and stallworth, etc.... besides the fact that brady took a HUGE PAY CUT in order to keep the team competitive... only a guy like belichick could brainwash someone into something like that.

    There are going to be some tough decisions after the 2009 season.

    If Chambers and Rivers get on the same page in the next two weeks, it will certainly help us get the first one. I like this move. He hands hands, he's tough and at 5'11" and 210, he is tough to bring down after he has the ball because he can move. The tough decisions don't have to made until next September, by then a lot of things are going to be sorted out. Now we have to decide on O Line or D Line in round one. Without a second that choice becomes even more important.

    I think if we works out well with this squad and is a hard worker and character guy in the lockeroom, AJ will find a way to keep him. He's done it in the past. AJ will reward the ones that deserve it. I hope he steps up and becomes that No. 1. He's GOT to be excited to be on this team. I would be if I was on an 0 and 6 team going to a contender. AJ will make the right moves. No worries.

    Considering he will be making more than VJ,Floyd and Davis and will likely be the 4th WR at best, i will say it will be 88 who is gone at the end of the season

    Just another reason i love this trade today!!

    The second I came across this news today I was oh so stoked! CHRIS CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMBERS!!!

    He is ill, and is everything we needed to continue on our new balanced offense tip, I don't think that parker has much of a chance to stick around, all be it he was good for us,

    It is what it is, another upgrade over at charger park.

    :abq2:

    I doubt his impact will be huge statisically from the start, but defenses have no choice but to pick thier poison, at most they can do 2 at once...

    1.double gates
    2.cover chambers,
    3.stack the box against LT
    4.worry about VJ and floyd deeper
    in the secondary

    Woah we are totalllllly stacked lol :yes: I LOVE IT!

    Man we just got a LARGE upgrade at WR!!! A true #1 finally!!!
    I would hope EP stays, he is now the second best WR on this team.
    Turner is gone, that's for sure, and I think Floyd is also gone...he's just not doing anything worth keeping him around for.
    With Chambers on the field, every other WR is automatically better...so any combo of CHambers, Parker, Davis and VJ would be very hard for any team to cover.
