There are expected to be several other big names cut in the following days, perhaps hours. At first blush, there are a few names that may catch our eye. But looking closely at these players cut, the majority of them (the real good players)are getting up there in age. Mike Anderson is 32, Brentson Buckner is 34 and our good friend, Lawyer Milloy is 32. And...this is why Scott Pioli gets paid the big money, as it is his job (with BB, obviously) to sift through these players, attach a value to them and decide if and how they fit into the Patriots' system. I would, however like to see them first take care of our own. Specifically Vinatieri, McGinest and Givens.
