I think it's a little bit of both but I think it's more of just getting the guys we wanted. Unless I'm mistaken, we've signed everyone that has (reportedly) visited the team. We haven't spent insane money on any one player and we're still getting them. People keep speculating that the Patriots are spending all this money for one last push. Well, when was the last time we could franchise a corner, sign 6 players for a first year cap hit of around $15 million and still have $7.5 million left over? Why did we not do this in recent years? Because we had to restructure players to have $7.5 million total, let alone have that much left over after signing all these people. People could then point to last year when we didn't make a splash even though we had the money. I think it's false though to assume that we just sat there and did nothing. We needed to save money for a new Branch deal. It didn't work out. We tried to bring Ty Law back but KC offered a little more. It's a little like this year with teams like Green Bay and Tennessee getting blasted for having tons of cap room but not signing anyone. Did the Titans not have Donte Stallworth in for a visit just a couple of days ago? Right now they have Kevin Curtis in. I've just gotten so tired of the whole mindset that if a player doesn't sign in a certain place it's because the team didn't really try. Again, I don't think the team has been pushing THAT much harder for free agents this offseason, I think it's simply that we have the money to sign the players we target and we've been fortunate enough to land the players we've targeted.
