Lawrence Guy

The story with Lawrence Guy has become interesting since he is reportedly holding out due to an issue with his current contract situation.

If that report is accurate, it wouldn't be surprising to see him straight-up cut from the team rather than sitting on the roster bubble with some of his teammates.

During Bill Belichick's time as the Patriots head coach, the most notable players who have held out received different results upon their return. Some were given contract extensions; others were traded despite how valuable they were to the team at one time.

In the case of Guy, it's difficult to say what will happen, but it's possible because he's become a significant part of the defensive line over the last six years; Belichick may be more willing to work something out with him.
