The Patriots appear to have plenty of cap room, and perhaps it was by design. This year seems to have an unusually deep and talented free agent pool. I think that Patriots should sign these players. If they would have to go over the cap (who knows - this is a wish list - not a legit plan), BB should just yell "SIGN THE BEAST" at Goodell and be granted an exception. RB - Ray Rice - This guy is only 25 and seems to be the sole reason that the Ravens are actually any good on offense. I'd love to have him here for his best years. WR - Brandon Lloyd - I dare say that Brandon Lloyd could be a better fit at this time for this offense than Welker. He will not replace Welker's production, and in a vacuum, Welker is better for this offense than Lloyd. However, factor in the fact that the Patriots do not have any deep threat whatsoever and that Welker's production could be distributed among Gronk, Hernandez, and Lloyd, and you have a case for Lloyd. Ideally, I'd have Lloyd replace Branch. DL - Mario Williams - We already have one amazing DL in Vince Wilfork. We need more defensive talent, and we could have Mario Williams for a long time.
