I, for one, am tired with qualifying all of the teams needs post with "pending free agency signings" or something similar. You know what? Let's just include free agency signings as well. In other words, construct your ideal Patriots roster for 2009, including FA signings and draftees. Be realistic...we're not going to sign every marquee FA in the league. I'll delineate a few scenarios -- Franchise tags have been given to Nnamdi Asomugha, TJ Houshmanzadeh, Karlos Dansby, Terrell Suggs, & Channing Crowder. You can have them, but it'll cost you two #1s. We'll assume their teams won't match. In addition, Brian Dawkins, Albert Haynesworth, and Julius Peppers sign extensions with their current teams, so they're off the market entirely. Lastly, Brady shows up at TC 100% healthy, taking most of the practice reps and running sprints with everybody else.
