Default Pats release Milloy

Four-time Pro Bowl strong safety Lawyer Milloy was released by the Patriots on Tuesday after refusing to take a paycut.

Milloy, 29, was in the fourth year of a seven-year, $35 million contract and was scheduled to make $4.5 million this year. He had a $5.856 million cap number, which New England was trying to reduce. The Patriots will lose $4.05 million off of next year's salary cap because the remaining proration of his contract.

"This is a player and person I have immense respect for, and he meant a lot to this team and organization," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. "Unfortunately he's a casualty of the system. The timing is not good. We tried to find a way to make it work. In the end, we weren't able to get to that point."

Belichick said the negotiations for a revised deal have been ongoing since April. Belichick said this is not the way he wanted the relationship to end, adding that a player of Milloy's caliber can't be replaced.

Milloy played 106 consecutive games and has been the Patriots' captain the past three seasons. The Patriots signed strong safety Rodney Harrison to work with him during the offseason; Harrison has been working at free safety.

Antwan Harris and Chris Akins will compete for the strong safety job. There are no plans to bring in another player from outside the organization.

This is a pretty bad move by the Pats. They should of found another to reduce the payroll.

It's bad for the Pats, but great for the other 31 teams in the NFL. It'd be great if the 'Boys could add him to an already STACKED defense

The Cowboys are fine at safety. They have Williams, and Woodson. And plus even if they did need a safety they probably wouldn't sign him. But I wonder where he's going to end up.

if the bills add Milloy look out Dolphins cause the Bills will be the team to beat. Spikes and Milloy plus Clements plus Winfield plus Adams plus London Fletcher equals super bowl title. Bufallos offense is still scary. LOOK OUT FOR THE BILLS

A day after being cut unexpectedly by the New England Patriots, safety Lawyer Milloy has reached an agreement in principle with the Buffalo Bills.

The teams open the season against each other Sunday in Buffalo.

The Bills beat out the Redskins, who were the other team making a serious offer to the four-time Pro Bowl selection. The Bills had set Wednesday as a deadline day for getting a deal done with Milloy.

ESPN.com reported Tuesday afternoon that the Bills had made a contract offer and that by Tuesday night Milloy and his representatives were mulling offers from at least three franchises.

Beyond the Bills, the Redskins and New Orleans Saints made offers. It is believed Washington has offered a multi-year contract that would have paid Milloy about $5 million over the first two seasons. League sources said that the Saints had offered a three-year contract.

The Minnesota Vikings demonstrated early interest and then, when they saw where the market was headed, backed off later Tuesday. The New York Jets also made at least one exploratory phone call but it is believed their interest waned as well.

Milloy was entering the fourth season of a seven-year, $35 million contract that was seen as a landmark deal for a safety when he signed it in 2000. New England will save $4.4 million on its 2003 cap but will have to count about $6 million on its 2004 spending limit because of various prorated signing bonus segments.

Patriots sources said late Tuesday night that keeping Milloy on the regular-season roster would have pushed the team over the 2003 cap limit and perhaps forced the release of a starter or two. During the offseason, the so-called "rule of 51" applies to a team's salary cap, meaning it must count only its highest-paid 51 players against the ceiling. But when the regular season begins, every player under contract counts against the cap, and a club's account typically rises.

The scheduled 2003 cap charge for Milloy was $5.836 million. The two sides had been working on a potential reworked deal for four or five months but could not get together on numbers amenable to Milloy and the Patriots brass.

In Buffalo, Milloy will be reunited with former New England quarterback Drew Bledsoe, who urged Bills officials to sign Milloy, and who spoke with the safety by phone a few times Tuesday.

Milloy started in 106 consecutive games going back to his rookie year in 1996, when the Patriots won the AFC championship but lost to Green Bay in Super Bowl XXXI. He led the team in tackles in 2001, when New England won Super Bowl XXXVI.

But last year, Milloy had no forced fumbles, no sacks and no interceptions. His 91 tackles represented his fewest since he became a full-time starter. The Patriots will not concede this point, at least not publicly, but some team officials and coaches felt Milloy had not performed on the field to his salary level.

Meanwhile, the Patriots are scrambling to prepare its defensive backfield for the Bills. The effort to fill the gap intensified Wednesday in the team's second practice without him.

Antwan Harris, Chris Akins, Aric Morris and Je'Rod Cherry all could take Milloy's spot, although coach Bill Belichick didn't say who would start.

"I think Chris and Antwan will probably get a good number of snaps this week, but Aric will also get some work there," Belichick said.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

The Bills are going to kick so much ass this year. What a great pick-up by them. I'm putting my money on the Bills winning the AFC East. Since once the Dolphins have to play in the cold in December, they won't be able to win. But dammit, I hate to see the Bills do good...

Give me a break, Bills and Superbowl?

Two words that should never be placed in the same sentence.

But it was a good pick up, but I still don't see them in the Superbowl.
