Andre Caldwell - Not a great option but I'm assuming he wouldn't be too expensive.
Legedu Naanee - Again not a spectacular choice but could do decently.
Steve smith - Has had a full off-season to recover from injury. Maybe an incentive based contract or short term deal.
Defensive Line - Never can have enough depth on the line.
Raheem Brock - The Patriots tried to get him last year and were unsuccessful. I would only consider if Carter is unable to return to form.
My guess is that they didn't sign him last year for a reason.
Tommie Harris - Would replace Gerard Warren as backup DT.
Dave Tollefson - Had five sacks and two ff on a D-line with JPP, Justin Tuck, and Osi.
Matt Roth - The Patriots tried to get him last year. See my comment on Raheem Brock.. Not to mention he'd be an OLB in the Pats defense.
Wallace Gilberry - Could at least take a look.
Dave Ball - Decent depth.
OLB - Needs an overhaul and better depth.
Leroy Hill - Has been injury prone but managed to last 16 games last season. Had the third most sacks of all unrestricted free agent linebackers.
Geno Hayes - Worth a look.
Manny Lawson - More suited to a 4-3 defense but their isn't a whole lot on the market. Guy has spent all his time in 3-4, yet you think he's better suited for the 4-3???
Chris Chamberlain - Meh.
Cornerback - Could do with improvement as I don't want Nate Jones or Moldy on the team.
Terrance Newman - Only for vet minimum. His skills are diminishing but still had 4 picks and 8 passes defended.
Jarret Bush - Has played both Corner and Safety.
Jacob Lacey - Worth a look.
Safety - Needs some serious improvement but talent in the draft is limited.
Pats have already improved here by adding Gregory. NONE of the guys you mention would be an upgrade and certainly not Chris Harris who was cut by the Bears last year.
Gerald Sensabaugh - A slight upgrade.
O.J. Atogwe - For a small deal perhaps. Has been injury prone the last couple of seasons.
Reggie Smith - Smith is young and used to be a corner before being moved to safety. He wasn't a starter in 2011. Started 7 games in 2010. Worth a look.
Chris Harris - Was a pro bowler in 2010 before floundering last year with the Lions. Could be a low risk high reward type.
Quintin Demps - Has only played in all 16 games once, during his rookie season. Worth a look.
Honestly, I think you are nit-picking. Only Tommie Harris and Steve Smith are really of any interest, in all honesty.
