    Per Curran :

    Tom E. Curran ‏@tomecurran
    The Patriots have signed Armond Armstead, according to a source. Former USC player was productive as CFL pass rusher in 2012.


    We needed some good news.

    Shout out to the draft forum for having this kid on bullseye for about a year now.

    that would be one hell of a first step to put this season behind and start upgradong this team.
    Its like having another 1st rounder.

    That's sick. Hopefully he pans out like a Cameron Wake-type.

    First bit of good Pats news since Sunday afternoon. Nice.

    Next I'll take a report of some really bad things happening to Suggs, Lewis and the rest of the Ravens "bad winner" brigade.

    Or Shannon Sharpe having a building fall on him. :bricks:

    More importantly, you won't have to hear me cry about Ninkovich anymore. :cool:

    Cmon. You have to admit that Ninkovich has played way over his head and is a valuable player. It's not his fault that the BB/the team has relied on him to be something he really isn't.

    Hopefully this is a 4 year deal.

    I'm ecstatic about this. I view Armstead as my #1 "draft target" for the Pats. It's like having two 1st round picks this year. He will be the beast LDE/DT that we lacked this year, another physical presence alongside Wilfork and Jones.

    Our defense is already better. I really think this kid could be a slightly lesser version of a Calais Campbell/JJ Watt kind of player. I can't describe how happy I am about this signing.

    Someone would have to call the Nation Guard because someone (something) is killing Shannon Sharpe ;)

    I just read this guy has a Heart Attack that forced him to play for the CFL? That sure doesn't sound good.

    Nice start to the offseason already :)

    Seems like he's got a tendency to jump & swat the ball like JJ Watt which is something I like
