"This deal and the Jahri Evans deal are apples and oranges," Bauer said.

What's most clear is that there's plenty of fence-mending that needs to happen, and on both sides. If the Patriots do send that letter (while Bauer fully expects it, it's not clear whether the Patriots have or not), another line will clearly be drawn here.

Bottom line: There's really no endgame in sight.

"These things can change daily," said Bauer. "But they're taking this back to the old school, like it's '80s again. People usually work this stuff out."
