    Greer's contract was for 4 years, terms undisclosed:

    New Orleans Saints sign cornerback Jabri Greer - NFL - SI.com

    Philip Buchanon reported signed a 2 year $8.5M deal with Detroit:

    Two more CBs off the market. Greer turned down a 4 year/$20M deal from Buffalo, so he likely got money similar to what the Ravens gave Dominique Foxworth. Buchanon's deal is extremely reasonable compared to the big money being shelled out for everyone else.

    Crap.

    I was hoping he was the guy.

    Oh well. Six draft picks in the top 100. Guess the Patriots will have a very young cornerback corps.

    Down to Bodden, apparently, for an upgrade.

    I never thought Greer or Buchanon were realistic signings for the Pats.

    As for cap room, the Pats have plenty.

    Buchanon wasn't really a good fit here. He was pretty abysmal when asked to play a non-cover 2 system in Oakland and Houston. He was quietly very good in Tampa in the cover 2, so him going to the same system in Detroit makes sense.

    Greer could have been a good player. I'd hope the Patriots redouble their efforts to get Bodden.

    They need some of the money for rookies and to re-up some of their own guys. Id expect maybe one medium signing, like a Bodden. If not they'll go with numbers and hope some stick.

    Guess it's going to be Bodden or a rookie.
