    Patriots re-sign 7 from practice squad - New England Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston


    Seven PS players re-signed to futures deals, plus two more that are going to do the same. That's nine players, but the PS consists of eight players; what am I overlooking?

    IMO, once Kraft starts commenting on things such as contracts things usually go one way or the other. Moss- gone. Wilfork- signed. Brady- signed, etc.

    Kraft's greatest strength is getting a deal done. I would not be surprised that Kraft got involved w/ the the Mankins situation and worked out some kind of gentleman's agreement that a deal would be consummated once this CBA stuff got worked out.

    I could certainly be wrong, but I hope I am not!!

    Agreed on Light and BJGE. Light has a couple of years left and I think it still pretty good. BJGE is a fine runner. Hes not elite but any runner that gets 1000 yds and 10+ TDs is pretty good IMO.

    I can see them letting Warren go. He's not that good against the run and was sporadic against the pass this year. He really doesn't give us anything that Pyror and Wright can't give us.

    Warren may or may not be a starter. He may or may not make the team. But I would certainly re-sign him. I think that he is certainly more valuable than Pryor as a utility backup. wright may or may not ever play again.

    Re-signing Warren is inexpensive insurance. We don't know how ready our new additions will be.

    And considering the possibility of an expanded roster, it seems quite possible that Belichick will choose to carry an additional defesnive lineman.

    Thanks, for some reason I wasn't thinking about PS players on IR.


    Here is - to the best of my knowledge; please correct me if I'm wrong - a current list of players on the Pats roster with contracts expiring this season that will be free agents March 1. All are unrestricted free agents unless noted otherwise.

    Kyle Arrington - Exclusive Rights Free Agent
    Thomas Austin - (practice squad)
    Josh Barrett - Restricted Free Agent
    Kevin Faulk
    BenJarvus Green-Ellis - Restricted Free Agent
    Shayne Graham
    Matt Light
    Steve Maneri - (practice squad)
    Logan Mankins
    Brandon McGowan
    Sammy Morris
    Quinn Ojinnaka
    Jarrod Page
    Fred Taylor
    Gerard Warren
    Tracy White

    I've seen Landon Cohen, Matt Katula and Marques Murrell reportedly having contracts expire in 2010 in one place (Rotoworld), and 2011 elsewhere (espnBoston) so I'm not 100% sure on their status but I'm more inclined to believe Rodak and Reiss.

    If Wright ends his career (which he very well could), I would sign Warren to the minimum contract and load it with incentives. If Wright comes back, I would let Warren ride into the sunset.

    I'll leave the contract and cap management to Casserio. He will spend what he needs to.

    The following are must signs, IMO: Arrington, Faulk, BJGE, Katula, Light, Mankins, McGowan, and White. Sorry to Fragile Freddy, but he hasn't been useful to us lately. Let him go to another team to finish off his career and draft a RB.

    McGowan is not a must-sign. He started off great last year and then got picked on regularly once teams discovered that he was horrible in pass defense.

    Page is a better player.

    Page and McGowan are both nearly the same player. If you think that Page is good in coverage, I'm not sure why. McGowan is the better of the two. I think a lot of people forget about the way he shut Dallas Clark down in '09. With that said, I wouldn't mind re-signing Page either, but I don't consider it a "must sign".

    Gerard Warren will turn 33 years of age next season and the New England Patriots have a Gerard Warren clone in Ron Brace. The New England Patriots need 3-4 defensive ends (5 technique defensive lineman) who can rush the passer not overweight defensive lineman who are on the wrong side of 30.

    Patriots Defensive Lineman

    Ty Warren
    Vince Wilfork
    Mike Wright
    Ron Brace
    Myron Pryor
    Brandon Deaderick
    Kyle Love/Darryl Richard/Kade Weston

    I think Page has better balls skills. More INTs. Better upside. Bigger too.

    I do recall what he did with Clark. I also remember him taking bad angles on pass coverage.
