    Lots of action today! Wilson is a guy I like, but the folks here calling out his coverage skills have managed to temper my enthusiasm.

    Rodney Harrison the 2nd? :)

    No, somehow this one got past her. This guy seems to believe it's true.

    Hopefully this means Patricia is ready to blitz a lot more, because there's no reason to sign Wilson if you don't plan on running a lot of safety blitzes.

    I like the signing since he does potentially fill a need, he was always a great leader in Arizona with a good attitude, and I'm guessing it's a cheap deal.

    Well, let's see what they paid for him. I'm not delighted about his pass coverage skills -- I watch him play a lot and he seemed slow by a step last year. But the Cardinals were a pretty down in the dumps franchise after Kolb got creamed, so let's see what he can do.

    The one place you love having a guy like this is in the playoffs when it gets nasty and there's pushing and shoving and jawing. He won't back down from anyone. He has a severe nasty streak. I guess I worry a bit about culture shock. He's a one-team guy, from a pretty crappy franchise. Maybe that's a good thing -- maybe he has a rebirth when he sees the way things work in Foxboro.

    He wanted to retire a Cardinal, and they let him go over $2.5 million. Now he's a Patriot, and maybe that's more than he expected and he'll play his butt off. I hope they didn't overspend.

    Hope we can get a couple good seasons out of him. Still think we should take a safety high in the draft, but I like this alot. Now get Talib and Abraham done, backup corner and coverage LB (who we may already have with GLass IR and Fletcher but still wouldn't be too tough to find), and this D is all but set.

    Today's events are causing me to have a warm, tingling feeling on the inside of my groin. Freeney ain't leaving Foxboro without a contract, either!

    Talib
    Dennard
    Arrington
    Wilson
    McCourty

    It would be our best secondary since 2007, please sign Talib soon!

    Now she is sounding like Incarcerated Bob.

    Adrian Wilson is HUGE win for the #Patriots. Vet strong safety, inexpensive... still working to get details.

    So, that makes two defensive backs named Wilson. Geno Capelletti is going to be confused. He does not approve!

    Big safety, 6-3 230.
    Ran 4.53 at a combine back in the 1980's sometime.

    So here's the big-hitting safety.
    Assume McCourty stays as the coverage safety.

    Is there any role for Gregory? Although they eat $1.7mm in dead money, they save $900K by releasing him. Possible trade for a 6th/7th rounder?

    This sits Wilson, which is just fine. Let him season another year.

    Should be plenty of room for a corner - Talib, Asomougha, whomever.
    And a RT, whether SeaBass or someone else.

    Nice day.

    McCourty and Wilson with Gregory as the backup is a nice upgrade. The pass rush could be better, too, with Armstead and Abraham (although I am not convinced.)

    Time to add an elite corner and a sympathetic Lincoln, Nebraska judge.

    Gregory is a good rotational safety. Didn't like him as a starter but I think I'd keep him in this role. Tavon and possibly another rookie to be developmental 2nd safety next to McCourty down the road.

    Awesome news! Now BB lock up Talib and hopefully Sanders is too much for Steelers to retain and we can add him. Freeney/D'vill out there as well.
    BB Pullin'da'trigga he's not done yet!
