There must be a fire sale on defensive backs this year. So far the Patriots have signed (or allegedly signed) 15 of them. They began by re-signing Ventrone and signing Spahn and shipping them to NFLE. Next, they re-signed Gay, Hawkins, Poteat, and C. Scott. Jones, Mitchell, and Warfield were signed from other teams. During the draft they chose Andrews and then Brown, Hall, Herring, Jackson and Smith were allegedly signed as UFDA's after the draft. Why do we need a total of 22 defensive backs on our roster? The only thing I can figure is most of the UFDA's will be at rookie camp and then released.
