Absoutely, especially if it gets Danny off the Chad Johnson thing. I don't want to trade any picks away..when we can get pretty good WRs in FA.

Booker is a pretty good WR. Not as good as CJ, but we don't need his kind on our team. We think B Lloyd was a problem!

Maybe.. He'll be 32 by the start of training camp and has only had two 1,000 yard seasons (2001 & 2002) out of 9 and has only topped 55 catches in those seasons. He scored 14 TD in those 2 seasons combined and has 15 in the 5 seasons since. He's also only 6 feet tall, which isn't as tall as some people may think.

Wouldn't hurt to sign him to the vet minimum and let him compete in training camp

Feb. 19: Booker is scheduled to meet with Patriots officials at Gillette Stadium on Tuesday, reports The Boston Globe. Booker, 31, was released by the Dolphins on Feb. 11. The nine-year veteran, who started all 15 of his games last season, has played for the Dolphins (2004-07) and Bears (1999-2003).

He's not that big. About the same size as Thrash. If he's cheap he's worth a look. Otherwise, no.

He wants to go back to Chicago. I think that's where he'll end up.
