    The youth movement will be the trend of this offseason. The Pats will clean house and rebuild. You also forgot Samuel and the option on Stallworth.

    Donte Stallworth - gone, unfortunately
    Asante Samuel - gone
    Chad Scott - gone
    Eugene Wilson - gone
    Jabar Gaffney - stays unless some other team wants to overpay
    Junior Seau - If he wants to return I think the Pats will have a spot for him
    Larry Izzo - stays
    Lonnie Paxon - stays
    Mel Mitchel - stays but always seems to get injured, played well on special teams
    Randall Gay - I see him coming back but will be demoted to 4th option at best
    Randy Moss - stays, he has unfinished business
    Tedy Bruschi - See Seau
    Troy Brown - I see him hanging it up


    Who I think the Pats will bring in?

    I think they will make a serious run at Terrell Suggs if the Ravens are dumb enough to not slap the franchise tag on him. I aslo think the will sign some veteran inside LB's who are around 25-27 in age.

    Who I think they will draft?

    I think the Pats will take DE/ LB Vernon Gholston or the best DB.

    Would love to have seen more of a workload to Stallworth. I don't think we saw enough of him this year. I don't know how options work. Can anything be done with it?

    Was thinking about this...We need another electric receiver on the other side of Moss. We have Welker in the slot, but Stallworth was a bit of a letdown. Chad Jackson maybe hitting his potential.

    That was a big problem in the playoffs. If we have another above average receiver, Moss maybe doesn't get doubled and tripled. I also think Watson disappeared...

    I know I'm going to get slammed for this, but I honestly think that Chad Johnsons posturing this week is a play for the Patriots to pick up a phone and call Marvin Lewis to ask about his availability. I would not be shocked to see this at all.

    No Jersey Selected

    Someone else in serious need of restructuring is Richard $eemour. He is taking much more than he is giving.

    Why all the love for Izzo? Personally, I think he is done. Time for a young player to step up.

    Just how in the world are the Pats gonna be able to afford Suggs? They spent the bank last year on FAs, so how can they afford to do it again? Plus your gonna have to shell out some money for Moss to keep him around. I see you guys taking the best DB available since Gholsten probably wont be around.

    If Gholston is not around at pick #7, the Patriots will most likely trade down.
