This is that wonderful time of year when we argue among ourselves as to what the Pats should do in free agency. I think free agency is quite important but other members think we should rely primarily on the draft. The free agents we signed from 2000 to 2004 played prominent roles in the Pats winning three super bowls. Listed are some of those players: (2000) Andruzzi, Hamilton, Otis Smith, and Wiggins ( Pats were in salary cap hell) (2001) Compton, Izzo, Neal, Patten, Phifer, Pleasant, Antowaine Smith, and Vrabel (2002) Fauria, Gorin, and Hochstein (2003) Ashworth, Colvin, Harrison, and Poole (2004) Josh Miller, and Traylor. There was some good talent among these players. The past couple of years the Pats did not have the same level of success as in 2000-2004. In light of their free agent losses, I hope they get more involved in free agency this year and jump in at the start like 2003.
