SportsFilter: The Saturday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

I need to hustle my talented nephew over to Foxborough while Belichick is suddenly paying full retail prices and beyond for available talent.

What happened to the Bob's Discount Furniture Holiday Sale approach to rostering in the Dark Kingdom? I became a believer in the "Buy Low - Coach High" strategy years ago. I looked at all the celebrating players on the Duck boats in the Pats' 2017 victory parade and I saw nothing but solid value and overachievers.

The only consolation is that teams like Arizona and Cleveland are now paying ex-Patriots players alarmingly vast sums of money of their own free will.
