    Because they can't get paid an ass ton elsewhere and still be rich? You have to play good to get paid no matter what and other teams are usually willing to pay.

    If players see that theyre not rewarded for hard work, they wont work as hard for you, it sends a bad message to our guys whenever one of the leagues best isn't retained.

    I just don't believe this. Players work hard to get paid. I don't think they care who pays them.

    I used to believe this was true and to a degree I think it still might be. The patriots use and abuse players like players do their ho's and yet they still get amazing effort and production from the underpaid bastards. They get away with it because to the players think that every year on a NE roster is a legit shot at a ring. Teams like us however can't afford to take that approach.

    It is true. Not sure what you do for a living but would you bust your tail extra hard or go the extra mile knowing you'd never be compensated for it?

    Yes the NFL is a little different in that your resume is you tape, and thats readily available to all teams, but its still a basic principle that applies in any industry.

    Not retaining your home grown talent is bad juju for the locker room.

    I usually lean towards the player on financial issue so I really want to believe this with out a doubt but it seems that now more than ever the trend is bust your ass for us now and someone else will pay you later. I do think it matters to free agents though. I've noticed not many FA's go to New England despite the chance to win and it's probably due to knowing there is no security there.
