    The New England Patriots signed unrestricted free agent C Chris Morris, restricted free agent RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis, veteran free agent OL Jonathan Compas and rookie free agent RB Richard Medlin. Terms of the contracts were not announced.

    Good to hear about BJGE, now just suck it up and sign a contract, Mr. Solder.

    Wow im shocked that the pats went and signed Richard Medlin. This guy has unreal vision i remember watching him and said wow he seems to find the tiniest gaps in defenses and breaks what would be a 1 yard gain to a 5/6 yard gain. I only got to see him play 2 games but he stood out really good vision. Hope he makes the practice squad!

    I just posted about him in the UDFA signing thread. 2 things I noticed about him? Very powerful legs and great vision. Don't know if he's ever fumbled..

    Also a decent pass catcher.. Don't know about fumbles though.

    Just saw a vid of his highlights. I agree that he has scary vision and instincts.

    Kind of tough to judge what he can actually do as it was all Division II competition.

    Would be a nice story if he makes it.

    ...so apparently they were not right at the roster limit, needing to drop Clayton to sign Roth, Brock, or Omenyiara.

    Kettani vs. Faulk vs. Morris vs. Medlin for the #5th RB/ST spot.

    Kettani is an interesting PS possibility he was pretty good at the USNA as I recall.


    I like the Morris signing compete as a backup for Koppen.

    Didn't BJGE just sign his 2nd round tender offer?

    1.8 Million was the 2nd round RFA tender number for a RB.

    I have to believe that the Pats will work on a longer extension as the season moves along but I could be wrong. What is the likelihood of this happening?
