Brace signs with Patriots - The Boston Globe
Scout.com: Ron Brace Profile
Well, we know Reiss loves Edelman and he had the benefit of watching him. With TC in two weeks and all manner of new players, I'll be waiting to see what the eagle eyes at PatsFans will think.
We did notice a slight sense of appreciation in Reiss' OTA bulletins, but he's not what I'd call a "team source" if I was a fellow reporter writing for the Scout.com network.
It will be nice to see what Edelman has to show with the pads on. I heard he has looked impressive thus far. I'm not sure what the holdup with Chung is??
It's not so much a holdup with Chung as the fact that the Patriots are
ahead of the pack signing their #2 draft choices.
Exactly, once the contracts for Ingram and McKenzie are agreed to, Chung gets the rest of the rookie pool, from there he's in the house.
Team source eh ?
Reiss loves Edleman so much he's basically said he'd put him in the 53. I'm going to be paying lots of attention to this TC. 12 picks (I don't think many of us thought they'd take so many) - is this going to be a boom or, like 07, will we be training them for the likes of the Browns, Chiefs, and the Broncos ?
Even though I've never seen him play, if he shows the Pats anything close to what Wilfork did his rookie season, Wilfork is gone. I wrote this in a similar post, but I think the hype around having a "pro bowl NT" is overrated. There were a couple of 3-4 teams that had a no name line that did better against the run than the Pats. Also, if the Pats LB's can't gather a consistent pass rush, BB will go back to his 2003/2007 roots and add a stud pass rusher. Book it!
Ingram must be an unusual situation. Deep snappers are usually not
drafted and are among the lowest payed players. In this case, Ingram
was drafted and has a specific pay slot.
He's cheap enough, the only real cost for him is his signing bonus which is fairly modest, plus NE may not sign him for the full four years, which lowers the signing bonus still further.
At the risk, of course, of greatly increasing his fourth-year salary (since he'd then be an RFA).
