09:37 AM ET 05.05 | When Bill Belichick mentioned that he felt the Patriots got good value in a trade for running back LeGarrette Blount, he probably wasn't just talking about what the team gave up to acquire him (seventh-round pick and Jeff Demps). The value extends to Blount's contract, which was renegotiated to consummate the trade. Blount was scheduled to earn $1.2 million in base salary with the Buccaneers in 2013, with additional bonus money, but the deal was slashed to $630,000 with the Patriots (and is reduced to $358,000, via a split, if he lands on injured reserve). Blount can also earn a $50,000 workout bonus in New England.

How about this?

BB should make sure there are no Boise State players on the roster. Apparently, when it comes to that crew, Blount does not play well with others.

The Pats also got rid of Jeff Demps...

Who might have all the ability in the world - but we wouldn't know it... cause he's never played a down.

He'll play a long time for the Hoodie as long as he takes pay cuts.
