    Another option at least to look at and see how he could help our secondary if Samuel and Gay leave.

    I read that he was considering retiring but he's denying that. Seems like another viable option.

    I'd be wary of anyone who got cut by the Lions, esp a defensive player who had a base salary of a reasonable 3.5 mil.

    He's only 30, so that would be surprising. Wouldn't be the first time someone retired early, but still...

    I've never seen him play, and the numbers on a cornerback are kind of misleading sometimes. Anyone know what kind of corner he is? Good one on one? Good against the run? etc...

    Re: Fernando Bryant, another free agent CB

    He used to be a man to man cover corner who found a 2nd life playing in the Lions' Tampa 2. Speculation is he was cut because Brian Kelly is now available as a FA, the Lions finally have some decent young backups, and they are targeting the position in the draft.

    So basically, he's an average Tampa 2 corner and a mediocre man to man guy. Can he play Cover 3, that would be the question the Pats would want to answer. He's not a bad tackler. Could be a situational backup.

    What is interesting is that there will be a plethora of CBs...LBs..WRs..that will be available...many many players. It will be interesting to see who the Pats go after.
