    The same guy who always hooks me up with info inside the stadium let me know a few things he's found out.

    - said the patriots have Vincent Jackson as their highest rated WR just as a fyi nothing about actually getting him. (Highest rated wr on another team)
    - patriots want to focus draft on the lines o line and d line.
    - have thought about using 1st round pick to trade for someone to get a good pass rusher. I asked about peppers only to be told highly doubtful.
    - want to keep core players, did not say who specifically but feels the team would like to get CJ Spiller if they had a shot.

    Just thought it was good food for thought

    ...Does this person get this info directly or do they know someone else?

    A "serious" pass rusher would be great!!

    Im surprized that Bill hasnt sent mayo in more up the middle. He seems to have the most speed to the QB on the team.

    I think we all hope this happens. As Brady gets older it's important he is protected better. And the DL clearly needs help especially if Vince leaves.

    With three #2s and a deep draft that could work for the right guy.

    I'm assuming this is two different pieces - want to keep core players having nothing to do with Spiller. Hopefully that means they'll make good offers to Vince and the other upcoming FA.

    Music to my ears.

    Also Spiller could be a lethal weapon in this offense. I'd be fine with drafting him.

    Directly. They work directly in the stadium and I gave him my word I would not out him or his position.

    This reminds me of the poster who went under the name of "NEInsider" on the ESPN boards who was really in the know and would post about stuff before it happened and give out details that not even Reiss, Schefter, or King would even know about.

    Anyone know if he still posts these days?

    Assuming CBA does not get ratified, this makes Jackson a RFA (5 years), but then he has great chemistry with Rivers so I see him at the top of the Chargers list of players to retain at the end of this season.

    For those of you in the know, how high do you think CJ Spiller will go in the draft? I know he is the projected no. 1 RB in the draft.

    I don't think so. I do know that the Pats knew of that poster, and that he was not an actual insider.

    Vincent Jackson Highest rated WR? Did he say why?

    And they wouldn't like to find a pass rusher in the draft?
