    Also after the draft, many more decent Vets will be cut.
    I am NOT an apologist for the FO. But strategy could be to go for many high value low cost FA's as they have done in the past
    The ones, I really like are Hobson, Shawn Barber, Michael Boulware (and move Meriweather to CB), Jerome Mcdougall, Teddy Lehman, Adam Sewell
    Some of the good Free Agents still left include:

    Jimmy Kennedy
    Victor Hobson
    Kwamer Harris
    Boss Bailey
    Shawn Barber
    Gary Baxter
    Tatum Bell
    Kendrell Bell
    Michael Boulware
    Fernando brynat
    Danny Clark
    Sammy Davis
    Ron Dayne
    TJ Duckett
    Andre Dyson
    Dominique Foxworth
    Bubba Franks
    Randall Gidfrey
    DJ Hackett
    Brian Kelly
    Clark Haggans
    Ty Law
    Teddy Lehman
    Jerome Mcdougall
    Antwan Odom
    Adam sewell
    Jeremy Stevens
    Ben Troupe

    Boy in 2001, when we signed a guy like Mike Vrabel, alot of us went who, but I was at the faithful day in Pit Jan 98, when Bledsoe coughed up the ball on a strip sack by Mike Vrabel- He was basically a no name guy, how did that turn out???


    Boss Bailey and Victor Hobson would be good additions to this team..

    Rosie Colvin wasn't even listed as one of the quality FA's still left and he's the best of the bunch.

    There's still a small glimmer of hope that we can bring him back. I wouldn't mind seeing that.

    Randy Moss says hello.

    And Colvin said the Pats told him he wasn't in their 2008 plans.

    Randy Moss
    Julius Jones
    Alge Crumpler
    Mewelde Moore
    Javon Walker
    Marty Booker
    Jabar Gaffney
    Jeremiah Trotter
    Na'il Diggs

    Note: I'm not listing these players as simply options for NE, but as other good or "decent" free agents still available.

    Very true. I just have a hard time thinking of Randy Moss as a free agent. I want Borges to write another article about him so other teams get nervous about signing him.

    List wasn't meant to be all inclusive.

    The Bobby Grier comment had me laughing.


    the thing about "value" free agents is that their past record is NOT going to be perfect, that is why you can get them at a discount

    Taking a "flyer" on a player is from the Warren Buffet school of personell moves


    Buy low, sell high.

    So mnay other teams buy high (see Eagles and Jets)

    Although I don't know if I consider some of these guys decent, I do think there are still a lot decent free agents on the market. Many of the players available are better than the ones who were already signed. For example, I would much rather have DJ Hackett or Bryant Johnson than Jerry Porter or Mushim Mohammed. In fact, I would like the Pats to pursue Johnson to replace Stallworth.

    He's meeting with Buffalo. Isn't signed with him yet.

    You may be right, but he would be a 3rd/4th WR and he was a damn good 3rd in Arizona.

    None of the existing free agents solve the Pats problems more than Moss.
