    The best

    Adalius Thomas to New England: Frankly, it would be impossible for this deal to be any more perfect. Bill Belichick wants his players to be smart, versatile, hard workers both on the practice field and in the film room, good people, and consequently effective on game day.

    That description fits the former Raven perfectly.

    Thomas can stop the run, get to the quarterback and defend the tight end in coverage. Teaming him with the master of deception in Belichick will only make this star even better.

    Give Robert Kraft credit for spending the money on a player who represents every single value stressed by the coaching staff and the core Patriots in the locker room, including the most important value of all, doing anything to win a championship.

    Thomas proved that in Baltimore.

    Someone said it refers to "ALL DAY" That means he brings it all day long.

    It only makes this deal better that apparently Thomas took a little less to play here.

    I say the AT deal is great but Dallas getting Leonard Davis from AZ has to be the best off season move. Davis is domanating at times. AT is very good but Davis is possibly a future HFer. AZ has to be the dumbest org. in the NFL for letting this guy walk without compensation.

    That was a terrible move... all that money for an average, non-probowl lineman?

    Most people consider him a bust. His life at LT is probably over, which means he couldn't have been that good.

    Its evident neither have you have watched this guy play. He played for one of the worst teams in the league. He single handedly got james 3 ,100 yards games in their final 4 games. Im not down playing the AT signing , it was a great one. IMO Davis is a top 3 tackle or 1# guard in the league. I hate dallas but they got one right with Davis. Id trade Glenn in a Ryan Diem in a heartbeat.

    I have no clue what you're talking about, Davis is a bust. Jonathan Ogden is a future hall of famer. Orlando Pace may be a future hall of famer. Davis has not even made the Pro Bowl ONCE! In order to become a Hall of Famer you need about 5-10 Pro Bowls and a superbowl ring.

    Change of venue can do wonders for a career. Some names come to mind. Steve Young, Chris Carter. Davis turned the corner last year. If you watch any of their last few games last year you might think differently.

    Adalius Thomas is the #1 FA signing so far

    followed by kris dielman

    every other top name per position looks overpaid.
