    I was just looking at the FA tracker and there is still a ton of FAs out there. They technically haven't even gone to FA yet.

    Could they still get Lawson or Roth?

    If Haynesworth is $5m to the cap and we can pretend they restructured Ocho to $4m on the cap... was there any room left?

    I still think they add someone who can contribute at OLB.

    I think these pickups are better than anyone imagined, but they most likely aren't done. It's only been 3 days.

    They're not done in free agency, but they won't make a splash as big as either of these two. Lots more little splashes on the way.

    Still 4 positions that need upgrades or competition/fallbacks:

    OLB
    OG
    RB (main runner, not 3rd down guy)
    LT


    If Light re-signs, that will take it down to three.

    Hopefully the next move is to re-sign Mankins to a long term deal (+ cap space), re-sign Light to a short deal (- cap space) and then cut Kazcur (+ cap space). Hopefully that results in a little more cap space and improved OL depth.

    Agreed. I think they'll try and get Roth or Lawson or some no name. Remember, they can still cut Kaczur(assuming Light gets resigned), restructure Mankins, cut some dead weight and still have plenty of money.

    Nnamdi anyone?

    Khayos - If they cut Kazur, then yes. There is room. Plus they have the 3.5M Vet exemption. Which is where I think they put Chad..

    Their next moves should be to get the rest of the draft picks signed, then get Mankins to a long term deal...

    With Hayneworth to aid the Pass Rush, now the Pats can go get a fully capable 3-4 OLB.

    Manny Lawson can set the edge well, and drop into coverage, excellently. He has good, but not great pass rushing ability. But they can afford and don't need that as much, now.

    I want Manny Lawson as the final touch...

    Sign Mankins long-term and save some money, resign Light, and then trade Kaczur to save some more.

    Back when he was cut by the Phins, the Pats did not put in a waiver claim. Don't see how anything has changed since then.

    Roth strikes me as a the type of mediocre player who teams sign to a relatively large contract in unrestricted free agency just to feel like they've 'upgraded.' Nothing about him makes him stand out to me. Honestly, I'd call him a poor man's Rob Ninkovich if I had to describe him. No use signing guys just to sign them.

    Osi, on the other hand...

    Man, I hope not. Albert is a great addition IMO but we still need another pass rusher.

    I don't know how good the player is, but one can certainly bet that he will receive a premium for his services.

    I can see them waiting until the FA frenzy is fully over, and then picking up an OLB at a reasonable price. By then, maybe Mankins has a long term deal ( here or if he has to be the highest paid G via a trade), at which point there will be more money to avoid too many further cuts ( than TBC and Kazcur). Hopefully one of Roth/Manny are still available then. However, I expect one of our existing pash rushers (always like Cunningham and I think Moore is hidden gold)having a true breakout season anyway, so am not as worried as others over this.

    If we can get Roth, and then somehow address RG on top of that, this would be pretty much the ideal offseason.

    Honestly, I think that they should sign their own players. A Mankins long term deal, would complete this offseason for me. :)
