Adalius Thomas Might Be Avaliable This Off-Season

Patriots LB Adalius Thomas will not be active for Sunday’s game against the Panthers, according to a league source.

Thomas, who was a healthy scratch once before this season, was on New England’s list of early inactives, the source said.

Thomas was among four players sent home Wednesday for arriving late to an 8 a.m. team meeting. Thomas spoke out about that punishment earlier this week and has been at odds with coach Bill Belichick at times this season.

Thomas, a high-priced free-agent signee before the 2007 season, has failed to put up the kind of numbers that he did with the Ravens, and some Patriots teammates believe he could be let go after the season given his conflicts with Belichick. Some wonder if Thomas will see the field again this season as well, unless injuries force the coaching staff to use him.

In my opinion, who cares if he's available....if he can't get along with Belichick, what would make us think he could get along with Mike Smith. We need some more players on the "D" for sure, but we don't need a trouble maker, who makes millions a year and can't even get to a team meeting on time. Sorry.......I'll have to pass on Thomas.

First, JayOzOne, he wasn't let go by anyone. He was a highly prized free agent whom the Ravens badly wanted back. It was an economic decision, pure and simple. Notice I'm not arguing the "overpaid, under-performing malcontent" part. :P

But with this said, he's really only a fit in a 34 scheme. So unless we planned on changing, I don't think he's a fit here.

And we want an overpaid, underperforming, malcontent who was let go by TWO teams in two seasons because... :wacko:

Wrong. He was let go by the Ravens because if they kept him, they could not keep Terrel Suggs. Obviously, they thought Suggs had more upside and potential.
