    The Patriots officially announced the signings of linebacker Adalius Thomas, tight end Kyle Brady and running back Sammy Morris today.

    Patriots coach Bill Belichick touched on Thomas in a statement:

    "Personally and professionally, we are very impressed with Adalius Thomas,” he said. “His playmaking, toughness, intelligence, versatility and character were all factors in our decision to pursue him. Adalius has contributed in many ways to some excellent defensive units and we look forward to getting to work with him."

    Will Patriots.com have a live feed of Thomas's 4:00 conference call?

    Yup. And now the pressure is on BB and the coaching staff. OK, Bill, you got what you said you needed, and another piece or two will be added, then the draft. Let's do it. Not another coach I'd rather have set up like we're going to be.

    We still don't have any solid numbers on this deal, do we?

    I hope this statement is official enough for everyone :D

    NFL Network won't cut in for FA signing press conferences so they sure as won't broadcast a phone conversation. ESPNNEWS is too busy with NBA, X-Games, and NASCRAP.

    What about the local channels?

    Thank god for SF's sh itty secondary!

    Clearly it was their priority which prevented them from being bigger players for AD's services.

    Saw that on DirecTV. FSNE is showing the Don Barksdale story (WHO?). Patriots.com has no live feed. This is lame.

    Anyone else worried at how Adalius' contract has/will be affected by the fact that Clements just got himself the highest ever payday by a defensive player? I know Thomas is older, but he'll probably be in the same ballpark.

    I agree, it's the best day of free agency they have ever seen, and they don't seem to be done yet. If you include franchising Samuel and re-signing Koppen and Evans to the mix it's gone better than anyone could have hoped for despite losing Graham.

    I believe Adam Schefter (sp??) said something to the effect of BB having Thomas will be "devastating".

    This is a big day for Patriots fans. A.D. will take our defense to a new level. Now all we need is a little youth and depth (can you say draft?), and we should easily have one of the best defensive units in the league next year!
