    Recent news on Dan Connor - Unsigned Free Agent - Rotoworld.com

    Released from Giants IR at the request of him/his agent, healthy and ready to play would he be worth a look at this point? Or do you stick with Fletcher & Collins in the rotation?

    As the snippet in the article notes, good against the run not so good against the pass. Adding him with Soap at NT in front could aid in some phases of the game.

    We've got Spikes who is a beast against the run. The Patriots need cover Linebackers more than anything.

    Do the Pats really need another LB who can't cover?

    Ideally, no :p

    But can they keep up being one of the worst teams in the league against the run too?

    Having Soap in the line is going to help down the stretch, then it relies on who's next to him at DT to not get beat by a G too easily and the DEs to make sure the edges are set (which Andre Carter had quite the whiff yesterday).

    No interest in Connor personally, I really like the idea of giving Collins and Fletcher the opportunity to play. We also have Beauharnais on the roster too.
