    Before Free Agency Begins, the patriots should

    1) sign a lot of players (technically for futures contracts I think)
    2) allocate players to NFL Europe
    3) Hire and promote coaches and coordinators
    4) Restructure Willie (or pay a $3.5M roster bonus)
    5) Exercise the option on Dillon ($3M)
    6) Waive Poole or pay a $500K roster bonus (before he get hurt again)
    7) Waive any players injured in 2005-2006 that we don't plan to keep
    (before we owe them 2006 monies, and before they are hurt again)
    8) Enjoy the Senior Bowl and other college games
    9) Review scouting reports (college and pro)
    10) participate in the combine and review analyses

    Any more?

    ------------------------------------------------

    After this comes

    11) Making decisons and negotiating with our own FA's, signing some early
    12) participate in free agency, including bidding up some RFA's
    13) perhaps make a trade or two (pick for player)
    14) renegotiate player agreement.
    --------------------------------------------------
    Then comes

    14) the draft

    Looks good at the moment but I"ll have to think about it awhile. You've definitely gotten the crucial stuff. Why two #14's? ;)

    I agree with most of the stuff and added my own comments in red.
