NFL Player's futures

It’s not all sunny in Hawaii, well it IS always sunny there but not for all of the NFL players there this week for the NFL Pro Bowl game. It never is too early to look ahead and there are many great athletes who had stand out seasons, personal best and NFL record best. Lets look at the home team the New England Patriots, they have two big FA’s this off-season. Asante Samuel has never gotten a big pay check playing under the rookie contract and than being franchised this past season and making a little over 7 million dollars, which may be a lot for you and me but not for NFL players who need this money for a living because most do not have a back up profession after there NFL career ends. "Obviously it's my goal to have financial security for me and my family and my kids,'' Samuel said.”I definitely want to play on a winning team. But I would love to remain a Patriot.'' That looks like the harder of the two signings the other is Randy Moss who broke the NFL TD single season record and had Tom Brady NFL’s golden child say “I go where Moss goes” and since Brady is not going anywhere you can believe Moss will be back in New England uniform under a longer contract next season.

Here is the list of Pro Bowl caliber free agents that after this game Sunday will be in decision decided what team they will be playing for in the 2008-2009 season and the future.
